Personally I am not too stoked about anyone on the list right now, ask me in a few days with the amnestied players and I will have had a chance to let it all in. Righ now I think we need a 3 spot and a 5 spot player. How about Richard Jefferson at the 3 spot and Pryzbilla at the 5 spot if we can somehow sign them. That would give us one heck of a bench now. Unless we are looking at a trade somehow that might net us 1-2 players without losing players like trading draft picks to absorb salary to help another team with cap space problems.

CableKC
12-14-2011, 05:53 AM
Looking at the Backup remaining FA list....the only backup Center that I'd try to nab Pryzbilla for a 2 year deal to be a backup to come in and play for 18-20 mpg.

As for finding a Guard....I'd be interested in either Aaron Afflalo or Wilson Chandler. The interesting part is that the Nuggets traded for Rudy Fernandez and Corey Brewer. I could be wrong...but I think that the Nuggets will be at roughly $49 mil after signing Nene.

As for the Wing rotation:

Plan A:

Bird should make a reasonable ( but slightly above average ) offer to Afflalo ( which IMHO is worth it since he's a solid defender and decent scorer ), see if they match it. If they don't.....great, we have a very solid and deep Wing rotation that emphasizes defense ( which I would LOVE ).

Plan B:
If they do match......no problem....save the Cap space and then make a run at Wilson Chandler when he returns from China. He'll still be a RFA under the Nuggets....but the Nuggets would be in a tougher position to match any offer. I know that Chandler is a RFA and the Nuggets could match anything...but I wouldn't mind trying to make a solid offer and see if the Nuggets blink.

Basically, use the Capspace to force the Nuggets into a bad financial position where they would have to choose between Chandler or Afflalo.

Miller-Time
12-14-2011, 06:47 AM
Like the idea with Afflalo and Chandler as backup plan. Especially because there is no real downside. Afflalo is way better than Rush and if Denver matches, we can try PG out some time @ SG and see if this fits well and then go for W.Chandler and let him backup Danny.
Sounds like this could work out pretty well.

By the way. Do we know in the meantime how for much Foster was signed?
I'm still. struggling to fix my math. Where do we stand in terms of overall salary - we still have to spend some money right. And with my unfinished math of the contracts, it won't be enough to fill out our remaining roster spots with cheap minimum guys (e.g. a backup center).
Some feedback would be much appreciated

Seems like it might be smart to save some cap room to able to offer one year deals to Brooks or Smith when they come back, especially if we've got injuries to cover for. The attitude issues that these guys have aren't likely to show up if they're brought onto a winning team on a short-term contract.

There was a little blurb about Kris Humphries in Adrian Wojnarowski's article about the Nets trying to acquire Dwight Howard:

Nets assembling blockbuster Howard trade offer - Yahoo! Sports (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news;_ylt=AhTPY9ay4zQUpbqjyk.hCmC8vLYF?slug=aw-wojnarowski_dwight_howard_magic_nets_nba_121311)


The Nets are waiting on the Howard deal before trying to sign free agents. If they miss out on Howard, they’ll likely try to re-sign free-agent forward Kris Humphries (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/3831/) to a one-year contract worth $8 million-$9 million, sources said. The Nets will likely try to limit any players they add in free agency to one-year deals if they don’t acquire Howard to preserve salary-cap space for Howard’s expected free agency this summer.

Interesting. Humphries could (potentially) be had for a short-term deal. We're (seemingly) interested in short-term deals. We need another big, particularly one who can rebound. You think we might be giving him a look?

I think he said he'd like to take some time off and spend Christmas with his family and that he'd look for a club after that. I suspect he may be joining the Bucks if that happens.

We need another big, particularly one who can rebound.

On a cheaper option, Reggie Evans is still available. He's 31, but he's a beast on the glass; one of the few guys in the league who's actually a better per-minute rebounder than Jeff Foster. He's only 6'8"-6'9", but he's, long-armed, strong, and, according to 82games.com, plays both power forward and center.

No disrespect to anyone, but I think some of you are way over the top with this lovefest for Aaron Affalo, to me he is just a slightly younger Dhanty Jones

Afflalo is like Dahntay except he can shoot, moves well without the ball, and isn't a black hole on offense. He isn't a younger Dahntay, he's a better version of him. He's everything you like about Dahntay, without everything I hate.

If there was any way Denver wouldn't match anything he gets, I'd love to go after him. I would like him more than Crawford or Mayo both.

I think Afflalo's gotten ridiculously overrated, too. Bill Simmons claiming we should sign him for $12.5M a season was one of the craziest things I've ever read.

I don't like Nick Young either, though. He's one of the biggest one-dimensional black holes in the league.

I'd be in for Afflalo, but only if the price were right, and everything that I have read looks like he's going to be way over priced....Not to mention he's RFA so the Nuggets would have the option to match...Maybe we throw an offer his way just to make the Nuggets own up and fork over some cash to retain him, but none the less, I don't see him coming....

Humphries...I don't know about this guy....He's got too much baggage surrounding his off the court life....I don't see him having a good year as he is far too busy with his "real world" issues....

I would love to sign Kenyon Martin and/or Wilson Chandler in March.

I don't think we can offer a big enough role for Humphries. He's a little small to play center, and West and Hansbrough together should eat pretty much all the minutes at PF.

I'm fine with finding another center to keep Foster a little more fresh, I'm just not sure Humphries is that guy.

There are a few serviceable players left and i think they could be had for cheap. I like Humphries as a back up PF/C, AK47 too. Lhe latter would bring great versatility and cover several positions adequately at least defensively...
I would LOVE to have Humphries, but he's not going to come to play in Indy for 18 to 20 mpg.

As for AK47, same thing.....assuming that Paul George exclusively plays at the SG spot....we'd only have 14 to 16 mpg at the backup SF spot....there's no minutes at the backup PF spot unless West or Hansbrough plays some backup Center minutes.

I believe he's chosen to sit this year out.
I'd think that at 32 years old.....unless he had some injuries that require more est....he'd want to get a small contract before he gets too old. :shrug:

I'd be willing to make the same offer to JR Smith and Nick Young, a one year contract. I'm not willing to commit long-term one-dimensional headcases.

I didn't know that Nick Young was a headcase :shrug:

Afflalo is like Dahntay except he can shoot, moves well without the ball, and isn't a black hole on offense. He isn't a younger Dahntay, he's a better version of him. He's everything you like about Dahntay, without everything I hate.

If there was any way Denver wouldn't match anything he gets, I'd love to go after him. I would like him more than Crawford or Mayo both.
We have the capspace and the apparent need ( at least Bird thinks so ) to shore up the Wing rotation.....where's the harm in trying to make a good run at a solid Player?

I don't even mind slightly overpaying for him....he's young, still has some upside, is a very capable defender and ( if you think that he's a better version of Inferno that can actually score....WHICH I WOULD LOVE having in the rotation ), just go with what I suggested before:




Plan A:

Bird should make a reasonable ( but above average ) offer to Afflalo ( which IMHO is worth it since he's a solid defender and decent scorer ), see if they match it. If they don't.....great, we have a very solid and deep Wing rotation that emphasizes defense ( which I would LOVE ).

Plan B:

If they do match......no problem....save the Cap space and then make a run at Wilson Chandler when he returns from China. He'll still be a RFA under the Nuggets....but the Nuggets would be in a tougher position to match any offer. I know that Chandler is a RFA and the Nuggets could match anything...but I wouldn't mind trying to make a solid offer and see if the Nuggets blink.

Basically, use the Capspace to force the Nuggets into a bad financial position where they would have to choose between Chandler or Afflalo.
I think that Bird wants to have a clutch scorer in the lineup coming off the bench....but a PG/SG/SF rotation of DC/Afflalo/Granger/GH/PG :drool: would be incredible. We would be in a position to create a super-deep Wing rotation that is set for the next 3 to 4 seasons.

I would even overpay to lock in a Player like Afflalo.... I don't mind if we have a clutch scorer like JCraw....but I would easily choose a Player like Afflalo over JCraw simply for his defense.

Djones gets no love I swear. I think Afflalo is luxury at this point considering who we have on the team already and Djones defense is just as good as Afflalo.

I think the team could benefit from a little more veteran presence, honestly.

I probably won't find many in agreement but I wouldn't mind bringing in Dampier or Kurt Thomas to put in a few minutes/gm off the bench. Foster has his back issues to deal with. I think either of the guys I mentioned could stay healthy in limited minutes and could help us keep Foster healthy (healthier) by reducing his workload.

Thomas is tough as nails, which the team needs. Dampier has been around the block and on some successful teams (locker room value).

You're preaching to the choir...if Afflalo isn't an option ( as in getting a Player that is better then Inferno on the offensive end but comprable on the defensive end ), then I'd have ZERO problem standing pat on improving the Wing and given the bulk of the remaining SG minutes to some combination of Inferno/Lance/Brush with Inferno being the first and preferable option.

Sorry for the outdated list from post 1, I tried to edit it and mark out all the signed players, but it was too much like work. Here is a link to the official NBA site that is way more up to date obviously.

http://www.nba.com/freeagents/2011/

My wish of James Jones is gone - didnt realize that he had already re-signed with the heat. I always liked JJ, was disappointed to see him leave the Pacers years ago, and always wanted him back.

So anyway LB said in todays paper that we wont necessarily go after anyone else. That means that we are stuck with Brandon and Inferno as the last 2 swingmen on the bench. IMO, thats not that bad, especially when it comes playoff time. You want solid defenders in the playoffs.

Still not sure about the frontcourt depth either, unless one of the "camp filler kids" impresses.

Lets go Pacers!
