Were the Spurs interested in D.J. Strawberry?

According to krepsinis.net, the San Antonio Spurs, along with the Los Angeles Lakers, were interested in former NBA player D.J. Strawberry but the NBA lockout all but put an end to Strawberry possibly returning to the NBA and joining San Antonio.

Although he would have been another guard, the Spurs’ interest in him was probably due to the fact he is a decent defender. And this focus on defense is good to see coming from San Antonio as they retool for next season. If there is a next season.

Also, you got to wonder if the Spurs were looking at him to fill the void at perimeter defender with the trade of George Hill.

As for Strawberry, he last played in the NBA with the Phoenix Suns in the 2007-2008 season and had stints in the D-League.

He has now signed with Israel after playing with Lithuania.
