The San Antonio Spurs finished with the second beat record in the league this year, ending the regular season with a franchise-record 67 wins. However, the Spurs know the clock is ticking for some of their older players, such as Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, who will most likely be leaving in the next couple seasons.
Thanks to excellent management on the part of the Spurs organization, the franchise already has a plan for the future with Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge. But the two star forwards will only get them so far.
Once again, the Spurs front office is thinking ahead to carry the dynasty forward. According to some sources, the Spurs are interested in trading up in the upcoming 2016 NBA Draft.
The San Antonio Spurs have explored moving up in the first round of the draft, per sources. They currently have the No. 29 pick.

We don't yet know which players the team is targeting, but, given their history of excellent decision making, we’re going to assume it’s the right ones. The draft takes place on June 23 with the Sixers, Lakers, and Celtics holding the first three picks.
