Thanks for posting this. Its very helpful.

I am surprised that the Thunder havent made a run at Boone. He's been a solid rebounder when he gets the minutes, and that is something they desperately need, and I'm sure he wouldnt cost them much. Or even Mbenga just to have a shot blocker coming off the bench. I know he is foul-prone, but he's a hard worker and a big body.

I'm still surprised that Stackhouse and McGrady dont have jobs. I really think the Cavs should make a run at McGrady. They have some cash to throw at him and they can make him a unique offer: Keep the Cavs in the playoffs and prove that you are in the same league as LBJ. I mean, the Cavs built their team around a ball-handing, play-making small forward, and that is what McGrady naturally is, so it seems like a good fit, and should McGrady get the Cavs into the second round... well, that is as far as LBJ got them last year.

Stackhouse would be great on any bench: Spurs, Celtics, Heat, Lakers. And he has seemed willing to take the vet-min, so I'm not sure why nobody has picked him up yet.

And the Spurs need some three-point shooting now that Mason has left and they have watched the likes of Finley, Bowen and Barry retire or leave over the last couple seasons. They used to thrive with their three-point shooting, now it is average at best, and I assume wouldnt mind the vet-min to play for the Spurs, or even both he and Devin Brown (who has already played under Pop) or even Wilkins.

There are still some difference makers out there, like Tim Thomas, Larry Hughes (who could have a positive turnaround in a new system) and a handful of point guards.

I'm curious to see how this plays out, if the thunder chase after the big man they need to contend, and if the Spurs try to replenish their three-point options, or if contenders like Boston, Miami and LA will add guys like McGrady or Finley to their line-ups.

Afaik Philly haven't spent any of either the MLE or Bi-annual, but feel free to remind me if they have.
I think storytellers is generally considered a pretty reliable source for this sort of thing:

Oh, you missed this, the list of teams who haven't used any of their MLEs:


With that said, there are still five teams that have their full Mid-Level Exception to spend if they so choose. The Atlanta Hawks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, New Orleans Hornets, and Philadelphia 76ers haven't touched their $5.765 million MLE's this summer.

I thought Cole Aldrich was supposed to address those two issues?

Yeah he's an inferior spot up shooter. He didn't even hit his corner 3's last season like he did the previous season. A whole lot of folks are ahead of him at this point. There were rumors of the Celtics looking at him but I don't think that will happen.

Surprised to see T-Mac hasn't signed yet. Thanks for posting this though, it's very useful to see what teams can still pick up some quality pieces.

Lets all stop overrating T-Mac now. He's no difference maker at this point in his career and if he's in your starting 5.. You have a pretty horrible SF situation going on.

But the Kings, Thunder, Nets and Wolves should just sit on their cap space at this point until the trade deadline mid season.

To believe he couldn't be a useful player off the bench isn't out of the question though. I think he could actually be pretty productive playing around 15 minutes a night coming off the bench for a contender.

I agree. I think that he could be a very nice contributor off the bench for a team like Boston or Chicago. He's valuable because you know he can step in and start if someone gets injured. The only thing that worries me is that nobody has signed him yet. If he was ready to play, don't you think he would have been picked up by now?

McGrady sure isn't wanting to come off the bench, and sure as heck isn't wanting to play 15 minutes a game.

That's why he's worthless. He still thinks he's a starter, or at the least should play starter minutes.

T-Mac really wants to pass the 1ST RD of the PLAYOFFS!! that's why he wants to be in a contender team..

The 3 Powerhouse Teams could sign him as backup G/F: Heat, Lakers and Celtics

Contender teams could sign him as a starter:
Magic(Tmac @ SG & Carter @ SF),
Mavericks (moving marion as backup PF,Butler @ SF & Tmac @ SG),
Hawks (moving Williams as backup PF & Tmac @ SF)
Bulls (Tmac @ SG)
Spurs (Tmac @ SG & Ginobili as their 6th man-backup for SG/SF pos)
Nuggets (Tmac @ SG)
Blazers (Tmac @ SF)

I know he still thinks he's a starter, but he is willing to accept the bench role just to win a championship..

If that was truly the case Chicago would have signed him. At the very least they're hesitant - if Mcgrady wants to get signed he needs to COMMIT to a bench role and PLAY towards becoming a starter, as opposed to trying to show he's starter material in training camp. Doesn't seem like he wants to take baby steps though.

I'm a little surprised Earl Watson hasn't been signed yet. He was pretty decent last season.
