View Full Version : Of the free agents left, who can make the biggest difference and for who?

Every year the big names get picked up early, but often times it is some of the older vets who sign a little later in the offseason that make the biggest difference.

Last season, Reggie Evans was a last minute signing and no teams really seemed interested in him, but he had perhaps the best rebounding season in the league. Chris Andersen didn't get picked up until past half way through the season and he was HUGE for Miami (they wouldn't have won without him and Ray Allen). We've seen this time and again. Guy like Ariza (via trade) or James Posey, ends up making a bigger difference than the big name free agents that switched teams.


So that said... of the guys who are left, who do you think will make the biggest impact and what team would they be best suited for?


I'm inclined to go with Billups in GSW or Miami... both of those teams could use a championship point guard coming off the bench, regardless of how old he is. Dalembert could be a huge pick up for Miami (Zaza and Przybilla could be huge for somebody too). And of course MWP. Nate Robinson could be a great spark off the bench for somebody too.


What do you guys think?

I think Chauncey still has something left in the tank.

Bynum is another name that could have an impact somewhere.

Zaza was signed by the Bucks 3 years/ 15 million.

Outside of Bynum and Ellis, Nick Young is still out there, as is Aaron Brooks

I think Monta Ellis, if he's willing to be a super-sub, can have the biggest impact. He could easily be the sixth man of the year. Andrew Bynum has to actually play a reasonable amount of time before I'll give him any value. People can discount health all they want; it's still the biggest factor in the success of star's career.

:sigh: Yea... Minny wasn't willing to do a S&T with us. I'm still hoping there's a chance, but reports are a deal won't get done.

They been rumored to want Corey Brewer for months. But I agree I think he would make a nice little bench addition. The Rockets have a little more cap room as well now that the salary cap came in a little higher than expected.

Jeff Teague is a good candidate...

What about Dalembert

I don't want to see Miami win another title... but Miami would be a great fit for Dalembert. I'm not sure how much he's lookin' for or how much people are willing to pay, but he's a double-digit rebounder with starting minutes. You plug him into MIA's starting line up.... forgetaboutit.

He'd be a good fit for the Thunder to, but I think they need to spend their money on a shooting guard.

If the Cavs got Bynum and could get 50 games out of him that would be my choice. But that's a lot of if's.
