Antonio McDyess, last seen coming off the Spurs bench and playing respectably if not well, is thinking about returning to the NBA after a year off.

With teams always looking for help along the front line, and with his reputation as being good in the locker room, the 6’9” McDyess might get some attention. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports has the story.

McDyess, 38, has been working out in Houston and has instructed his agent, Andy Miller, to gauge league interest in him.

“He would consider coming back and I will be reaching out to select teams,” Miller told Yahoo! Sports on Thursday night.

He’s not going to put up monster numbers — his last season in San Antonio at age 36 he played 19 minutes a night and averaged 5.3 points and 5.4 rebounds, with a PER of 12.8 — but a lot of teams would consider that because he’s seen as reliable.

It’s likely he wants to go to a team competing for a title or at least a good team, he’s not doing this to be the old guy in the locker room of a rebuilding team.

We’ll see if this goes anywhere. There also still is Kenyon Martin out there on the market but he wants a mini mid-level contract ($3 million) or more, where McDyess has to understand he’s a veteran minimum player at this point.

    It’s all about the money! And, I can’t blame him for that.

    Can anyone say Knicks? He would really fit in with that locker room! Him, Rasheed, Marcus and Kurt can all sit around and remember what it was like to play with Bird, Gervin, etc…….
