According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports, Los Angeles Clippers free agents Chauncey Billups and Matt Barnes are two players that the Spurs are interested in.

Billups, 36, has been receiving interest in free agency from the Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings, Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves, a source told Yahoo! Sports.

Barnes, 33, has also received interest from Dallas, Brooklyn, San Antonio, the Los Angeles Lakers and Atlanta Hawks, the source said.

With the moves that the Clippers made on Tuesday – Caron Butler and Eric Bledsoe trade, and the signing of Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick, both Billups and Barnes may look elsewhere for next season.

We will have more to this report as it develops.
