Fresh off last week’s reported tryout of Tracy McGrady, the Spurs will look at another past-his-prime former standout to potentially flesh out their bench. Yahoo Sports’ Marc Spears that Josh Howard will be in town today for a meeting with the Spurs. Spears doesn’t say what the meeting will entail — tryout, contract negotiation, or merely a friendly lunch.
Like McGrady, Howard has seen better days. Now 32, he’s four years removed from his lone All-Star season in 2007-08, during which he averaged 19.9 points and 7.0 rebounds per game. It’s been a slow but steady decline since then, culminating with his departure from Utah after averaging 8.7 points in 43 games last season.
