San Antonio Spurs rumors: Interested in Hakim Warrick

The San Antonio Spurs are another year older yet they’re still expected to compete for an NBA championship this season. To do so, they’ll need to continue to have strong play off the bench.

Given that, the San Antonio Spurs are said to have interest in free agent forward, Hakim Warrick.

If the name sounds familiar, that’s because Warrick was a collegiate star with Syracuse though the success never fully translated into the NBA.

Thought to likely be a high draft pick, Warrick’s draft stock slipped and he fell to the No. 19 pick in the 2005 NBA Draft where he was selected by the Memphis Grizzlies. Warrick looked like he’d carve out a role with the franchise but eventually was forced to move on where he signed with the Milwaukee Bucks. That would just be one of many pit stops for Hakim Warrick who eventually found his way to China after playing for the Chicago Bulls, Phoenix Suns, New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans) and Charlotte Bobcats (now Hornets).

He’s hoping he’ll be able to add the San Antonio Spurs to his resume given their interest.

Hakim Warrick will continue his quest to return to the NBA with the San Antonio Spurs.

The former Syracuse University star confirmed Friday that he had been invited to a workout with the reigning NBA champions. Warrick will have his workout with the Spurs on Sept. 1.

Assuming he is to sign with the San Antonio Spurs, it would likely be for nothing more than a minimum, one-year contract.
