Both the San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers will be selecting in the top 10 in the 2024 NBA Draft and each team could be active in the leadup to and following draft night. The Spurs have the fourth and eighth picks, giving them a chance to fill roster holes around star Victor Wembanyama.

Meanwhile, the Blazers came up short in last year's draft lottery, but they were still able to jump up and land the third overall pick. They will have the seventh pick in this year's draft, giving them two potential building blocks but they will need more as they continue their rebuild.

With both teams still building up their rosters in the hopes of contending in the near future, could a draft-night deal be a possibility? Possibly, especially with the uncertainty surrounding the draft. This may have led to a potentially mutually beneficial deal between the Spurs and Blazers.

One that may help the Spurs make the playoffs next season and the Blazers find a star. Next up, we'll take a look at a possible deal and see if both teams will agree to it
