Suspended two games
Graham will miss the first two games of the 2023-24 season due to his offseason legal troubles. The 28-year-old guard was traded from the Hornets to the Spurs last year and averaged 13.0 points, 4.0 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 26.4 minutes across 20 appearances with San Antonio. Due to the addition of Cameron Payne, Graham is expected to be a depth piece in the backcourt when he returns from his suspension.

Inks three-year deal with San Antonio
Though the Spurs have an open two-way spot available with rookie wing Sir'Jabari Rice and big man Dominick Barlow occupying two of the three slots, Cissoko, a rookie second-round pick, will be part of the 15-man roster on a standard NBA contract. The 6-foot-7, 225-pound wing spent the 2022-23 season with the NBA G League Ignite, appearing in 28 regular-season contests and averaging 12.8 points, 3.5 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 29.3 minutes per game. Since he's not a lock to be included in San Antonio's regular rotation, Cissoko could end up spending significant time with the G League's Austin Spurs during his first NBA campaign.

Re-ups with Spurs
Barlow also spent the 2022-23 season under two-way terms but managed to see action in 29 contests at the NBA level. He averaged 3.9 points and 3.5 rebounds on 14.1 minutes per game with the Spurs. However, with the additions of Victor Wembanyama, Cedi Osman and Reggie Bullock, Barlow could have a more difficult time earning NBA minutes in 2023-24.
