Spurs intrigued by Tyrus Thomas?

Ken Berger:

Two Western Conference teams intrigued by Thomas are the Nuggets, patiently seeking a big man to contend with the Lakers, and the Spurs, who were characterized by two rival executives as desperate to acquire an athletic big man. “They feel like they have to do something, like they’re behind the eight ball a little bit,” one of the execs said. The Spurs have a full complement of expiring contracts that would intrigue the Bulls, who want to avoid losing a significant player with no compensation (see Ben Gordon) for the second straight summer. The Spurs, who dipped their toe across the luxury tax line this season, will have to decide before the end of their annual circus road trip – which continued Monday night against the Lakers – what they’re willing to give up to see that investment pay off.

Spurs could be desperate have also been linked to Salmons in the past. Tyrus/Salmons for Bonner/Finley/Mason works. Not sure that helps the Bulls much on the court, but the goal of getting Salmons' 2010 option out of mind would be met, and they'd be freeing up more room under the luxury tax to make a subsequent move.
