OK so I went ahead and broke down my top 10 PF free agents for this off season. We know we will be signing someone and I figured why not take the time to rate them on a few pertinent categories and see where everyone shakes out after.

Yes, yes I know this is CRAZY subjective and is solely my opinion but I have been talking about a few of these for a while and wanted to really break them down side by side. I was a bit surprised by the results even when using my own weird grading scale.

I rated all players against 5 categories:

Fit with the Pacers (next to hibbert, attitude, defensive presence etc)

Cost to Pacers

Injury Risk

Potential (this includes Age and alike)

Current Production

I rated each player 1-5 with 1 being the worst. Current Production and Potential I rated up to 7 since they carry more weight IMO.

This includes both Restricted and Unrestricted and does not factor in the most *likely scenarios (ie Nene and Chandler staying put)

1) Marc Gasol

Fit: 4, Estimated Cost: 1, Injury Risk: 5, Potential: 5, Current Production: 4

Total -- 19

2) Nene

Fit: 4, Estimated Cost: 1, Injury Risk: 3, Potential: 5, Current Production: 4

Total -- 17

3) Carl Landry

Fit: 3, Estimated Cost: 3, Injury Risk: 4, Potential: 3, Current Production: 3

Total -- 16

4) Kris Humphries

Fit: 4, Estimated Cost: 3, Injury Risk: 3, Potential: 3, Current Production: 3

Total = 16

5) Kirilenko

Fit: 4, Estimated Cost: 3, Injury Risk: 1, Potential: 3, Current Production: 4

Total -- 15

6) David West

Fit: 3, Estimated Cost: 3, Injury Risk: 1, Potential: 1, Current Production: 5

Total -- 14

7) Chandler

Fit: 5, Estimated Cost: 1, Injury Risk: 2, Potential: 2, Current Production: 4

Total -- 14

8) Glen Davis

Fit: 4, Estimated Cost: 3, Injury Risk: 3, Potential: 1, Current Production: 3

Total = 14

9) Oden

Fit: 5, Estimated Cost: 2, Injury Risk: 0, Potential: 7, Current Production: 1

Total -- 13

10) McBob

Fit: 1, Estimated Cost: 5, Injury Risk: 4, Potential: 2, Current Production: 1

Total = 13

Let me be clear here too this isn't necessarily my personal ranking (although Gasol is my far and away #1). I just judged them category to category and was curious how they would shake out and this is what happened.

Super massive grain of salt is to follow...
