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.

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?
Spurs are going overboard with loyalty. Manu is a great player but not anymore and not at the price that I heard (7mil) and dont get me started with tiago paycheck. If they stuck with their guns they would have more money to sign better players, but it is what it is, wright can be a beast in the right system.
Spurs after Jamison? Is this the same Jamison that has been openly mocked for being one of the worst defenders in the NBA?
