If you mention the name “Chamberlain Oguchi” to San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker, Boris Diaw, and Nando De Colo, the three Frenchmen might have some memories regarding that name.

During the London 2012 Olympics, Oguchi lit France up with 35 points, 24 from behind the three point line, in a close game that France barely won.

Now it seems that same player who scored on multiple Spurs in Olympic play recently worked out for the silver and black according to SuperSport.com.

The guard also worked out at San Antonio Spurs in the wake of reports linking him to several NBA teams after an impressive show at the summer Olympics in London with Nigeria's D'Tigers.

“Took my talents to South Beach and had a great showing. Coach Spo and staff are amazing. Now time to take my talents to San Antonio,“ Oguchi recently wrote on his Twitter page.

Even though he worked out with the Spurs, Oguchi is reportedly ready to accept a non-guaranteed offer with the Heat as they have decided to take a second look at him according to the report.

From what I observed during the Olympics, Oguchi is a shooter with a quick release at the small forward position. He doesn’t awe you with his athleticism or ability to create his own shot, but if he’s put on a team where he can just stay as a spot-up shooter, he’s got a chance to make an impact.

Another report of a small forward a day after reports broke of Josh Howard visiting San Antonio on Monday could just mean the Spurs are looking for some more depth to add to their bench.

However, aside from Kyrylo Fesenko and a few other names being mentioned at the big man position, there’s a limited quantity of available big men who can make a quick impact out there right now on the market.

If the Spurs are looking to improve their front court, a move may need to be made, or they’ll be hoping that a full season of Boris Diaw, Tiago Splitter year three, and maybe a rejuvenated DeJuan Blair might be the answer alongside a consistent Tim Duncan.
