Former Sixers star trains with two franchises
Free agent Damien Wilkins trains with Spurs and former franchise the Hawks.
Former Sixers star Damien Wilkins has been training with the San Antonio Spurs and former employers Atlanta Hawks.
According to NBC Sports, the guard/forward, who had his best statistical season in five years during the 2012/13 regular season, is reportedly yet to receive an offer from either franchise, but could potentially end up on yet another short-term contract.
The Hawks are in need of depth on the wing and the veteran of nine NBA season's, could be the experience needed.
Wilkins became a free agent at the end of last season and has been tipped to return to former employers the Hawks, but reports suggest he is no closer to being offered a deal, after joining work-outs for both teams in the last week.
The 33-year-old averaged 6.4 points with a shooting percentage of 45.9 for the Sixers last season. He made 61 appearances in the last campaign.
Wilkins was released by the Hawks after just a month in 2010, but was then given a 10-day contract by the Atlanta franchise in 2011. They then signed him for the remainder of the season, in which he competed in the play-off's as the Hawks lost in Round 2 in a 4-2 series defeat to the Chicago Bulls.
The regular season schedule begins at the end of October, with the Hawks at the Mavericks on the 30th. On the same night the Spurs welcome the Grizzlies.
With the tip-off fast approaching, will Wilkins be able to find himself a place at the Spurs or the Hawks?
