Notes 
 White averaged a modest 11.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 0.9 blocks, and 0.6 steals in just under 25 minutes per game in his third NBA season. But did you see what the former first-round pick out of Colorado was able to do in the Orlando Bubble? He averaged a very impressive 18.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game. Granted, this production came without all-star LaMarcus Aldridge in the lineup, but there are rumors that he could be traded to another team. White should remain a starter and see an uptick in usage in 2020-21 regardless of whether or not Aldridge is a Spur this season.
