Garrett Temple

James Jones

According to AOL Fanhouse, the Spurs are looking to sign free-agent James Jones:

A source told FanHouse on Tuesday that San Antonio is taking a hard look at signing Jones, a free-agent forward whose contract was bought out by Miami last month in order to help the Heat clear cap room. It worked out well since the Heat got LeBron James and Chris Bosh to join forces with Dwyane Wade.

The source said Jones would sign for more than the minimum if a deal can be finalized with San Antonio.

Jones is a forward who can hit the three-point shot. Another three-point threat would come in handy especially with big men such as Tiago Splitter, DeJuan Blair and Tim Duncan who could use space to operate in the paint.
