The San Antonio Spurs already have PJ Washington on the board, but they will just about closer the first round with another draft pick. They can be creative here and look for a player to bolster an area of luxury.

Three-point shooting was a plus in 2018-19, despite averaging the fewest attempts in the NBA. They had the highest percentage of all 30 teams, finding quality shots instead of quantity like the Houston Rockets.

Adding to this to make San Antonio more dynamic from deep, Wofford’s Fletcher Magee makes sense as a reserve shooter to stretch the floor.

Magee had a terrific senior season. While not at the 48.4 percent clip of his junior campaign, he still hit 4.5 three-pointers per game and nearly 50 percent of two-point shots, which just under four per contested was attempted.

Spot-up shooting might be all Magee provides in the NBA. He’s not a plus defender and isn’t the most athletic guard. This could take him out of the first round and the draft entirely, as he’s not on most boards across basketball media.

If not Magee, the Spurs can chance on another shooter for their backcourt, but this is still a player who has the shooting stroke to deserve an opportunity to play.
