After landing the biggest free agent target of this summer in LaMarcus Aldridge, the San Antonio Spurs don’t seem to be quite done. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports that the Spurs have their sights set on Indiana Pacers big man David West.

West opted out of his $12.6 million player option with the Pacers for next season because the 35-year-old is looking to play for a contender. The Knicks were initially linked to signing West in free agency, but he since denied interest. The Clippers have shown interest in West since losing DeAndre Jordan to DallasThe Cavs were also reportedly interested in West, but their priority right now is locking down Tristan Thompson. USA Today’s Sam Amick reported that West would be targeting the San Antonio Spurs or even the Golden State Warriors as his next stop.

The Spurs would be offering West the veteran minimum, but at this point West is obviously not motivated by money. Either the Spurs or Warriors would present exactly the kind of opportunity West is looking for at this stage of his career. If the Spurs can reel him in, they’d have fascinating front court depth to supplement the loss of Tiago Splitter.
