Isn't RJ a decent fit for the Clippers too? I mean Caron Butler is probable better, but if they can't him, what about Jefferson?

It's still being worked out.

•Rather than becoming a free agent, a player released via amnesty enters into a waiver process. As part of that process, any team with cap space can bid for that player's services at a specific salary. The player will be awarded to the highest bidder, who will pay that salary. The difference between the player's previous salary and new salary will still be paid by the team that released him.

Spurs are aggressively in the market for a starting small forward, and amnesty allows them to use full mid-level exception of $5M per year.

Too bad this FA class is pretty weak

Maybe, but if healthy Caron Butler is a large step above Richard Jefferson.

Don't know if I'm wrong but I remember the season RJ signed with the spurs they were also looking into trading for Caron but they didn't wanna take on his big contract.

This pretty much means they got either Butler or Howard to agree to a contract.

No way do the Spurs amnesty Jefferson with no firm commitment from one of the SF they brought to town yesterday.

Caron gives them a much better chance to make a run than Howard imo

If Hill is really leaving, Phoenix should try to get RJ. He may make a comeback playing with a pass-first PG again.
