Chris Paul would be a valuable asset to the Spurs because he makes the players around him better. Spur players like Danny Green and Lamarcus Aldridge that had down years shooting the basketball would likely be revitalized with Paul at the helm of the offense. Kawhi Leonard also could see his offensive options open up a bit because Paul can make his job easier as well. The easier the offense is the more energy the Spurs will have to dedicate to the defensive side of the ball.
2) Parker’s Role:
Parker has a long rehab schedule ahead of him but if he returns to form his new role off the bench could be huge for the team. Similar to Ginobili before him he could be the veteran spark off the bench and could put a mighty stamp on the game. Parker has always been a shoot-first point guard and he could return to that mentality in a smaller role for the team. He would arguably be one of the best back-up guards in the league and could see time on the court with Paul for short spurts.
The Spurs have had offensive woes for the last couple years and Paul would end that with his ability to create his own shot. Paul has the ability to hit the mid-range and long-range jumpers and is a master at pick n rolls as well. He would give Leonard the help he needs on offense and even in the final moments of games. He is shooting 41% from the three-point line and 48% from the field overall. Paul’s defense isn’t bad as well, averaging about two steals per game last season.
