10) Zach Collins

The San Antonio Spurs have a pivotal offseason ahead of them and it could result in them overhauling their roster. One player who could find himself elsewhere next season is backup center Zach Collins. Collins signed a 2-year, $35 million extension during the preseason and that looked like a smart deal at the time, but his poor play contributed to the Spurs' ugly start.

Coach Gregg Popovich then made the decision to move him to the bench and slide Victor Wembanyama up to center. That decision has helped the Spurs play much better since December 7th but now they are stuck paying a backup center the salary of a starter. That might otherwise be okay but he hasn't been as good as he was last season off the bench.

The Spurs could also look to make a splashy deal for an upgrade at point guard and could solve two problems at once. They could package Collins with multiple first-round picks to land a starting point guard such as Atlanta's Dejounte Murray or Trae Young. They could be significantly better in that scenario and San Antonio does have another, cheaper option at the backup center. As a result, Collins could be on the move this summer.
