Free Agency: Spurs interested in Antawn Jamison, Dorell Wright

The free agency news is flying and it is enough to make any NBA fan head spin and the San Antonio Spurs are right in the thick of the numerous free agency rumors since the offseason began.

The latest Spurs free agency rumors comes from Yahoo! Sports as they report San Antonio is interested in forwards Antawn Jamison and Dorell Wright.

Los Angeles Lakers free-agent forward Antawn Jamison had a cast removed from his surgically repaired left wrist Tuesday and is expected to be cleared to play in a month, a source said.
 
Jamison has received inquiries so far from Dallas, Charlotte, Atlanta, Washington, Brooklyn, San Antonio, Memphis and Utah, the source said.

The Spurs recently re-signed Tiago Splitter and Manu Ginobili so their cap flexibility will be limited. If they are to go after a free agent, it would have to be a middle-tier type player. Jamison and Wright fit this "bargain" type player.

Jamison is the typical veteran the Spurs go after. However, the 15-year pro did suffer an injury last season with the Lakers, so there is a question of his durability. Last season he averaged 9.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and shot 46% from the field in 76 games for L.A. last season.

Wright is a 9-year pro and averaged 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and shot 39% from the field in 79 games with the 76ers last season.

Both could be solid contributors off the bench should the Spurs pursue either player in free agency.

What do you think Spurs fans? Should the Spurs go after either of these players or wait to see if any other players will be available?
