The Jazz could meet with free agent small forward Josh Howard this week, a source told The Salt Lake Tribune on Monday. Details of the tentative meeting have not been set.
Howard is still being pursued by Washington, the source said, and San Antonio has made an offer.
New Jersey, Chicago and Denver have also reportedly been interested.
Howard's camp said Saturday morning he received a "firm offer" from the Jazz. Utah general manager Kevin O'Connor denied the assertion a few hours later.
"I haven't made an official offer, no," O'Connor said. "That's incorrect. Have we talked about stuff? Yeah."
While the Jazz are interested in Howard and are in the market for an upgrade at small forward, Utah would likely have to get eyes on the free agent before signing him to a contract.
