While there's been plenty of talk about the Spurs moving up, there are plenty of interesting options available should they decide to keep the 29th pick.
Chandler Parsons, Florida
6-10, 221 lbs.
Worked out for Spurs: May 27
Parsons is a smart player with a great work ethic. his stock has risen after every workout he's participated in. He's very active on the floor and will tire out his defender due to his activity and ability to use screens.
At 6-10, he'd provide some size at small forward. Because of his unselfishness and willingness to play within the team, he seems like a good fit, character-wise, in San Antonio.
Parsons is a fantastic team player ... He doesn't have to dominate the ball to be effective and he is very a willing passer ... He's not going to be a defensive stopper or a go-to scorer, but he could be a very serviceable player off the bench for a good team ... Look for him to be taken in the early second round
Much of what makes Parsons an intriguing prospect stems from his ability to pass the ball, crash the glass, and distort the defense with his handle. We've grown accustomed to seeing all those things from Parsons over his four year stint at Florida, so seeing him have to create one-on-one against Giddens and be a scorer first was interesting to watch. He's not going to be asked to force the issue to score on the NBA level like he was here, so it was intriguing to see him out of his element, having to make decisive moves and get his shot off under duress.
