A former Boston Celtics sixth man could be able to help the Spurs with their point guard dilemma.

Malcolm Brogdon, a veteran who is currently with the Portland Trail Blazers and was formerly the Sixth Man of the Year for the Boston Celtics, could be the key to solving the San Antonio Spurs’ point guard situation, according to Cal Durrett of HoopsHabit.


Regarding a hypothetical trade that would send Doug McDermott, Cedi Osman, the Atlanta Hawks’ 2025 first-round pick, and two future second-round picks (2024 via Los Angeles Lakers, 2028 via Minnesota Timberwolves), Durrett said, “If the Blazers agreed to that deal, it would ensure that the Spurs wouldn’t have the same lack of playmaking next season that they have this season.” “That is also doubly important since they may draft a point guard and between that, Brogdon, and Jones, they will have far more options and players who can handle the ball.”


Brogdon was a part of the Jrue Holiday trade, in which the Cs also sent two future first-round picks to Portland along with Robert Williams III. That was unquestionably the appropriate decision to make in light of Holiday’s unexpected contributions and seasoned leadership. His championship knowledge from his tenure with the Milwaukee Bucks should eventually come in handy as well.


Brogdon is the kind of seasoned leader who could assist in reorienting the Spurs in the proper direction. He’s not a championship leader, but he is one who is used to winning and is a major factor in that. This may sound strange when discussing a Gregg Popovich-coached squad, but Wembanyama hasn’t had the strongest supporting cast in Year 1 so yet.
