Not knowing whether it was safe to comment on Finley, who was waived Monday by the Spurs upon his request, Rivers was reluctant to elaborate, jokingly calling him “the second or third best player out of Proviso-East,” Rivers’ alma mater.
But Finley, who won a championship with the Spurs in 2007, would bring additional experience and shooting.
“We’re looking around. I don’t even know if I can say anything about Michael. I don’t know what the rules are. He still hasn’t cleared waivers so he’s not officially free.“I don’t think a veteran ever hurts. I think it always helps your team to have one, if it’s the right one. Every team has some holes. Shooting is one thing we can’t have enough of as far as I’m concerned. You look at some of these other teams, their shooting is ridiculous.”
