One NBA writer is proposing that the San Antonio Spurs trade Devonte’ Graham to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Naz Reid. Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report proposed the following trade idea between the Spurs and Timberwolves:

Trade idea: San Antonio Spurs trade Devonte’ Graham and 2025 first-round pick (top-10 protected, via CHI) to Minnesota Timberwolves for Naz Reid

“San Antonio figures to slot Victor Wembanyama at the 4 for now to limit the physical wear and tear on his sinewy frame,” Buckley wrote in his latest NBA trade column. “The Spurs might need more reinforcements at the 5 to make that happen, though. Zach Collins has a rocky injury history, and San Antonio can’t expect much from the likes of Charles Bassey and Khem Birch.

“Reid could take on a prominent role in this rotation. He could not only handle the interior anchor duties on defense, but he’d also help the offense as a stretch center who can also finish around (and above) the rim.”
