Veteran point guard John Lucas III is beginning to watch the interest in his services heat up with free agency getting in to full swing. Lucas had interest from the San Antonio Spurs a week ago, but now there are two new teams throwing their hat in the mix.
From Jazz beat reporter Jody Genessey of the Desert News:
Veteran point guard John Lucas III met with Jazz executives in Orlando today and will talk to Houston this week, his agent told USA Today.

If you are a team looking for a veteran guard that can come off of the bench, then Lucas could be a solid addition. He is in no way, shape or form a starting caliber guard, so he shouldn’t expect to get the big bucks thrown his way.
