PLEASE NOTE:
NBA mods and TMs will try to keep this list up to date by adding news notes and graying out names as players leave the market. However, we probably won't catch everything, so please post updates as you become aware of them so you can give us a heads up to modify the list. Also, in the list below, however, there are too many names to keep track of, so please reference this list (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?page=2008freeagents) for a more up-to-date, complete list of available free agents.

Yeah if we can't somehow pull Monta Ellis away from the Warriors, then we will probably look to use it next year when Jason Collins' $6 contract expires so they can offer a superstar a max contract and overpay that player so that no other teams can go after him.

Sorry it took me so long to get around to adding up your votes and tallying the rankings, everybody. But just in the nick of time I have finally completed them, so please check the top post to see how all of you PSD posters evaluated the 2008 free agent class.

And please keep in mind that the rankings are based solely on your votes, so feel free to debate them and discuss them, but please don't kill the messenger - all I did was add them up. :cool:

That was the funniest/saddest thing they have said in a while. And I watch ESPN not because I think they are smart but so I can see how tarded they are.

I could see how posey is getting alot of love cause of the finals. Childress though idk they must love his slam articles and his fro

Surprisingly, ESPN knew what they were talking about.

I think you are really missing out on how strong JR's upside continues to be. I've seen a lot of posters talk a lot of trash about him at PSD (often using his offcourt mishaps to dis his oncourt performance, which is a mistake). He'll be turning heads in 08-09, though, I guarantee it. Definite 6th man candidate. Would be a starter - and a solid one - on a lot of teams in the league.

No I think he will be a good player but not a franchise changing player ESPN says he will be. He will be a good at the very leasr player if he ever decides "hey why not do this for 82 games"

I think Pietrus should be on your unrestricted list.

He's a solid player who plays on both ends of the court.
I think many teams would like to have him coming off the bench...

I tend to agree with you, but the list is just based on how the votes came in. Everyone who was named at least once by anyone is on the list.

If the C's (I hope not) don't keep Posey, he would be the ideal guy for us...

Thanks for all the updates, bball1217. :nod:

I merged your posts, though, since there's no need for a new post for each separate bit of news.

-----------

edit-

Updated status of players who have reached deals, etc. Keep the updates coming, folks - thanks.






And here's a question for everyone:

Of our top 10 unrestricted FAs, 4 remain: Brand, Arenas, Maggette, and Posey.

Who will be the last to reach an agreement with a team?

I'm voting for Posey. I think he'll want to poke around a little and really investigate his value on the market.

elton brand has not signed yet...but was offered a contract

DenButsu
07-02-2008, 10:25 PM
League sources said that Brand, who also opted out of his deal Monday night, will re-sign with the Clippers for long-term deal worth about $13.5 million a year. sfgate (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/07/01/SPCF11ICKB.DTL)

Okay, there's one legit news source. I'm going to just wait for confirmation from at least one larger-than-local source before I update the top post, though. If this is true, it's amazingly underreported right now... But, for example, another San Francisco paper has a contradictory report that nothing has been decided yet (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/sfgate/detail?blogid=39&entry_id=27815), so I'm going to hold off on the update until we can have some rock solid confirmation.

Thank you for the updates - I updated the first two, but I'm gonna hold off on Pietrus until we can source it (not that I don't believe it's true, just want to make sure).
