Apparently, the San Antonio Spurs may not be too satisfied with their roster just yet.

According to Hoopsworld.com, the Spurs are interested in free agent forward Donte Greene.

6-9 or 10 active body that stretches the floor, small forward or small ball power forward. Why are we interested? Because Jackson continues to get hurt?

it might be that Pop wants another guy who can play the PF/C spot since we're running a 3 big man rotation. he can be insurance for Jax too.

also Manu/Jax will be FA's next year so if he signs this year and next he can easily be a cheap replacement

The spurs scouting is some of the best on the planet, but even they need to do something for the dog days of the season

wow, I forgot about this guy. I'm surprised no one has signed him yet, for a minimum contract I'd sign this guy any day. Hope it works out, how about that two Green's wearing silver and black.

Let's sign DGREENE so we will have DGreen + DGreene!

Def a good insurance to have him here. Who knows he might even end up that Missing Chip!

Plus he's an unrestricted free agent (going to want long term something...) and he's in addition to Da Spurs, he's also working out for The Brooklyn Nets, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Hornets, Chicago Bulls and Houston Rocket.

Rockettes need him to replace their head case White and Morey has been known to overpay...

My only comment would be why the last minute run on this guy? Granted, he might fit the bill but if he’s been an unrestricted free agent all this time, why hasn’t anybody grabbed him before now? I guess Brooklyn, New Orleans, Chicago, Houston, Minnesota and the Spurs all realized after this past period of team evaluation, they must be missing something in the kitchen. It must be nice to be wanted….at the last minute, if the price is right. Come on down.

he really has no value. all the teams (except Houston) can't offer him a whole lot of money. the Spurs are the only real contenders in that mix and he can definitely outplay Blair & Bonner for the 4th spot in the big rotation easily.

Spurs don't seem to be too confident with this group if they are. it doesn't hurt to see what he can bring either. he can be insurance for Jackson or Leonard while playing the 4th big spot. it'd really be a no brainer win situation with no downside.

no idea how the "retaining rights" thing works since we somehow had Mills' rights along with Diaw last season when they were signed midseason, so if he signs and we keep his rights, that's also insurance in case Manu/Jax don't return next season.

Shoot! Maybe a little smudge on the insurance application, and you get a 2-for-1! Either gets hurt, profit!

White hasn't played a game for the Rockets. No need to replace him. Shoot, the team is doing better now than they have since signing Lord Scola.

How's PHX doing? Oops! Lottery.

he's overpaid Lin and Harden, but they at least showed some flashes of what they can bring or something that can get his hopes up. i doubt he'd want to overpay significantly for a guy who's been out the year and had surgery, especially when you want to overpay in the offseason not midseason.

Lin was overpayed but Harden in Houston not so much in my view. I think if he stayed in OKC and got that money than that's a whole other story.

he's on his old contract at $5 million this year. you're saying he'll be worth $15+ million in 2015-2018?

with the new CBA, that's definitely franchise cornerstone money

yes it was worth it! He is the face of the franchise and will be a yearly all star barring major injury. Is Manu worth 14.1 million now?? James is a cornerstone player now and in the future. OKC was good for him but this guy had star written all over him. In the Rockets current position.........he is worth it.

LEAVE HARDEN ALONE!!!!!! Talk to any rockette fan and you'll learn to fear the beard He's a combination of Jerry West, Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan wrapped up in one. He's the total package, he scores, he defends, he slices, he dices, he's what Tracy McGrady should have been. He's totally worth 15 million a year.

we haven't even gone through a full season and he's already a combination of the greatest players the league ever saw?

sarcasm right?

Whoa, whoa, whoa. He just listed some decent players. The list of greatest players the league has ever seen would certainly include Scola, James White, Tiago Splitter, Stephen Jackson and of course The Bonner. Quit putting words in peoples mouth Jose.

If there was any way they could still get this guy it would be luck but they would have to let Blair go.

You can look at it a couple ways.
First, Lin is a steal at $5M/year for years 1 and 2. If he's still there for the third year, you paid $8M+/year for your starting point guard. Not real outrageous money.

If he isn't your starting point guard, then he's overpaid. That's how the first month of the season looked.

If he's just average in years 1 and 2, then he's a $15M expiring contract in year three. We'll see what value that has with the new CBA in 3 years.

Asik, on the other hand, has been well worth the same contract. but the same numbers apply in year three.
