The Wizards have signed Damion James.

It's likely just a training camp deal and the two parties have been in talks for at least a couple days. James was with the Spurs last season and started one game. He's very unlikely to make the rotation to start the year.

Damion James is close to signing with the Wizards.

He started one game for the Spurs last season, but played a total of 50 minutes on the season. It'll likely just be a training camp deal and James will have a tough time making the roster.

Damion James started against the Rockets on Monday with six points, nine boards, two assists, one block and one turnover in 29 minutes.

Yep, it was that kind of party for the Spurs with several players getting plenty of rest tonight. Coach Gregg Popovich joked about James earlier this season when he joined them and was asked about how the forward will help. "If we're ahead by 20 or down by 20, we might find out," Popovich said. James made his 17th start of his career tonight.

The Spurs announced on Sunday that they have signed F Damion James for the rest of the season.

James has appeared in three games for the Spurs, and has averaged 1.0 rebound in 3.3 minutes. He is not a fantasy asset in any league.

Spurs sign F Damion James.

With the Spurs playing the second half of a back-to-back set tonight, then another one on Apr. 10 and 11, it makes sense to add James to their roster. They may have lost Austin Daye for a bit with a lat strain and James should see some time on the court as soon as tonight. He might actually guard college teammate Kevin Durant for some point during tonight's game.

Damion James will sign a 10-day deal with the Spurs.

The first thing to come to mind here is that Austin Daye's lat strain could cost him time. The Spurs are going to rest some players over the next two weeks, so added healthy depth is high on the priority list. For all we know, James could get a couple starts, but he's not worth owning in almost any league yet.

Damion James will be in training camp with the Nuggets on an non-guaranteed invite.

James last played for the Nets and has seen his career slowed down by a foot injury that has been tough to overcome. He's reportedly healthy but whether or not he lands on an NBA roster remains to be seen. His chances of making the Nuggets' final roster aren't great, but it could happen if he has a great camp.

Damion James said that his surgically-repaired right foot is "100 percent, ready to go," and he's eager to land a new NBA contract.

James played for Miami's Summer League team but hasn't yet been invited to training camp, much less offered a guaranteed deal. He averaged 15.7 points and 6.4 rebounds in the D-League last year but shot just 41.2 percent from the field, and will need to prove he can stay healthy after having two foot surgeries in two seasons.

Damion James will head back to the D-League after the Nets chose not to re-sign him.

James' 10-day contract expired and the Nets will let him walk. It's possible that James could resurface in the league at some point, but he'll go back to the D-League for now.

Nets sign SF Damion James to a 10-day contract.

James was with the Nets for two injury-plagued seasons before going unsigned as an unrestricted FA this summer. There's too much competition in Brooklyn to think that he'll have a substantial role on a temporary deal.

Hawks waive Damion James.

James' NBA career has thus far been derailed by foot surgeries. The Hawks were reportedly "impressed" by him this preseason, but not enough to keep him around on a guaranteed contract.

Damion James has "impressed" in the preseason and could have a leg up for a roster spot.

James is on a "make good" contract, and because he can contribute on the wing and is relatively young, it wouldn't be surprising to see him stick around as depth.

Damion James and James Anderson will compete for a roster spot in training camp.

Both 2010 first-round picks need a fresh start, but it sounds like only one will make the final roster. With the team looking to "fill the role of defensive-minded wing," the two players will battle it out to be a part of the second unit. Neither is a fantasy option.
Thu, Sep 13, 2012 11:11:00 AM

The Hawks and SF Damion James have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, according to Yahoo! Sports.

It's a non-guaranteed deal in the same mold as James Anderson's contract with the Hawks. Injuries have derailed James each of his two seasons in the NBA -- he appeared in only 32 total games for the Nets, averaging 4.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 0.6 blocks in 18 minutes per game. Those per-minute stats are intriguing, but his outlook is dimmed by all the competition at SF in Atlanta (Josh Smith, Anthony Morrow, DeShawn Stevenson).
