Are the Spurs interested in Matt Barnes?

In a recent interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Orlando Magic's free-agent, Matt Barnes, stated he was once sought after by the San Antonio Spurs prior to the 2009-2010 NBA season and, according to him, still feels he is on the Spurs' list as well as on other NBA team's list:

Before signing with the Magic last summer, Barnes said the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs were among the heavyweights who showed interest and he feels he's still on their lists.

Barnes, a small-forward, averaged 8.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in 81 appearances for the Magic. He was also the Magic's go to defender often called upon to defend the opposing team's best perimeter player.

Barnes does say he would like to return to the Magic but don't be surprised this is more posturing in order to get the Magic to resign him come July 1

Would be a bad fit for both.

The Spurs right now need a SF who can defend as well as knock down the open 3, and can also create his own shot. Not sure they can sign one after giving Splitter the MLE.

Matt Barnes has been underrated since his golden state days. This guy is a legit role player and a very solid one on a contender. Just one of those players whose impacts cant be shown on a stat sheet. He's just a solid role player.
