Report: Spurs want to explore free agent pool before re-signing Brown

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting the San Antonio Spurs are going to wait and explore the growing free agent pool of buy-out players before deciding to sign Shannon Brown to a full season contract.

As Wojnarowski mentions, with this decision, there's a chance Brown could be signed by another team. There's already been reports of the Spurs being interested in Glen Davis, as well as reports of the team being interested in Danny Granger if he reaches a buy-out agreement with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Other players who are reportedly going to be released are Antawn Jamsion, Ben Gordon, Earl Clark, Metta World Peace, and Beno Udrih.

The Spurs were rumored to have interest in Jamsion this past summer when he was a free agent. The Spurs also reportedly had interest in Udrih this past summer, as well as days before the trade deadline.

On the World Peace front, there was an article released last July that quoted Daniel Artest, World Peace's brother, saying Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich would have wanted World Peace on his team. Lastly, when World Peace was amnestied by the Los Angeles Lakers last summer, the Spurs were one of the team's on his list.

World Peace' brother also took to Twitter minutes after World Peace announced he's going to be bought out, to say the Spurs are in play as an option:

Though there will be a number of free agent options available, the Spurs will also be in the hunt with other contenders looking to pry these veterans such as the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, Golden State Warriors, Oklahoma City Thunder, and even the Brooklyn Nets.
