Team-by-team free agent analysis

Atlanta
Restricted: None
Unrestricted: Tony Delk (ETO), Tom Gugliotta, Tyronn Lue, Michael Stewart, Kevin Willis

Comment: Hawks are roughly $25 million under the salary cap and will offer a max deal to Ray Allen. They'll pursue a point guard such as Earl Watson or Damon Jones or big men such as Sam Dalembert, Stromile Swift, Udonis Haslem and Jerome James. Al Harrington wants a trade and will get his wish either this summer or in February now that Marvin Williams was drafted.


Boston
Restricted: Justin Reed
Unrestricted: Gary Payton, Antoine Walker

Comment: Most league insiders believe the Celtics are willing to trade Paul Pierce. They probably won't keep Walker, either, but they want to add a veteran to balance the youth movement of their past three drafts.


Charlotte
Restricted: Keith Bogans, Matt Carroll, Jason Kapono, Gerald Wallace
Unrestricted: Cory Alexander, Malik Allen, Brevin Knight, Kareem Rush, Tamar Slay, Theron Smith

Comment: Bobcats have about $20 million to spend and should be a player for some second-tier free agents. They need a shooting guard and small forward.


Chicago
Restricted: Tyson Chandler, Eddy Curry, Chris Duhon, Jannero Pargo
Unrestricted: Lawrence Funderburke, Adrian Griffin, Othella Harrington, Jared Reiner, Frank Williams

Comment: Bulls are expected to match any reasonable offer for Curry or Chandler. They also have about $15 million to spend to supplement their depth.


Cleveland
Restricted: DeSagana Diop
Unrestricted: Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Jeff McInnis, Robert Traylor, Dajuan Wagner, Scott Williams

Comment: Cavs have cleared about $28 million in cap room. Their primary target is Michael Redd, but they also seem determined to re-sign Ilgauskas, and could make a serious run at his fellow Lithuanian, Sarunas Jasikevicius.


Dallas
Restricted: None
Unrestricted: Tariq Abdul-Wahad (ETO), Darrell Armstrong, Alan Henderson, Keith Van Horn (ETO)

Comment: Mavs could let Michael Finley go to reduce luxury tax penalty, but are seeking a mobile center, a shooter and a backup point guard.


Denver
Restricted: None
Unrestricted: Greg Buckner, DerMarr Johnson, Wesley Person, Mark Pope, Bryon Russell

Comment: Nuggets have option on Voshon Lenard's contract and probably will keep him. They also want to keep Buckner but will shop for another shooting guard. They have enough money to offer a backup such as Antonio Daniels, Ronald Murray, Marko Jaric or Raja Bell.


Detroit
Restricted: Ronald Dupree, Horace Jenkins
Unrestricted: Elden Campbell, Darvin Ham

Comment: Pistons' primary move could be to add Allan Houston, who is expected to be waived by the Knicks. If not, they'll seek backup shooting guard or small forward.


Golden State
Restricted: None
Unrestricted: Nikoloz Tskitishvili, Rodney White, Calbert Cheaney

Comment: Warriors have surprisingly few needs for a perennial lottery team, which is a good thing for a team over the salary cap.


Houston
Restricted: None
Unrestricted: Jon Barry, Ryan Bowen, Torraye Braggs, Dikembe Mutombo, Scott Padgett

Comment: Rockets will try to use midlevel exception on a power forward such as Stromile Swift, Donyell Marshall or Chris Andersen. Also could add a guard such as Antonio Daniels.


Pacers
Restricted: John Edwards, James Jones
Unrestricted: Austin Croshere (ETO), Dale Davis


Comment: Pacers have interest in re-signing Jones and Davis but are hoping to land a veteran waived by a team looking to reduce luxury tax penalty or European guard Sarunas Jasikevicius. Damon Stoudamire also a possibility.


L.A. Clippers
Restricted: Marko Jaric
Unrestricted: Rick Brunson, Kerry Kittles, Mikki Moore, Zeljko Rebraca, Bobby Simmons

Comment: Clippers want to retain Simmons and Jaric, but both could receive generous offers from other teams. They're about $16 million under the cap, so they have options. They'll take a shot at Ray Allen but probably will whiff.


L.A. Lakers
Restricted: Luke Walton
Unrestricted: Tierre Brown, Devean George (PO), Brian Grant (ETO)

Comment: Lakers are expected to waive Grant to save on luxury tax but won't be in position to pursue big-ticket free agents. They will decide whether to exercise their option on Vlade Divac later this summer. They could make good use of their exceptions, however, as L.A. is an attractive place for many players.


Memphis
Restricted: None
Unrestricted: Ryan Humphrey, Stromile Swift, Earl Watson, Bonzi Wells

Comment: Grizzlies have a team option on Wells but would keep him only to try to get something for him in a trade. Swift has no plans to re-sign, and the team is looking to trim payroll.


Miami
Restricted: Udonis Haslem
Unrestricted: Shandon Anderson, Keyon Dooling, Damon Jones, Eddie Jones (ETO), Christian Laettner, Shaquille O'Neal (ETO), Steve Smith, Wang ZhiZhi

Comment: Heat are making O'Neal their first priority, but they also want to keep Haslem. He could get a major offer, making it difficult to keep him. They could let starting point guard Damon Jones go and pursue the likes of Antonio Daniels, Earl Watson, Damon Stoudamire, Gary Payton or Jeff McInnis. Robert Horry also has expressed interest in the Heat.


Milwaukee
Restricted: Dan Gadzuric, Zaza Pachulia
Unrestricted: Marcus Fizer, Anthony Goldwire, Toni Kukoc, Michael Redd (PO), Daniel Santiago, Erick Strickland

Comment: Bucks want to keep seeing Redd, and they have the cap space ($12 million) to offer a max deal to their shooting guard. They appear willing to let everyone else walk.


Minnesota
Restricted: None
Unrestricted: Anthony Carter, Eddie Griffin, Ervin Johnson, Mark Madsen, Latrell Sprewell, John Thomas

Comment: Timberwolves want to re-sign Griffin and Madsen but probably will let Sprewell go unless they get him at a bargain rate. They'll have a difficult time making major improvements with their exceptions.


New Jersey
Restricted: Billy Thomas
Unrestricted: Travis Best, Rodney Buford, Cliff Robinson, Brian Scalabrine, Jabari Smith, Ron Mercer

Comment: Nets have midlevel and trade exceptions (both $4.9 million) to use on frontcourt player. They're targeting Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Stromile Swift and Donyell Marshall, among others.


New Orleans
Restricted: None
Unrestricted: Chris Andersen, Dan Dickau, Casey Jacobsen, Bostjan Nachbar, Lee Nailon

Comment: Hornets are about $20 million under the salary cap and will pursue a starting small forward. They plan to retain Dickau. They also have an option on Speedy Claxton's contract but are undecided whether to keep him. Center Jamaal Magloire could be used in a trade.


New York
Restricted: None
Unrestricted: Jermaine Jackson, Bruno Sundov

Comment: Knicks are expected to dump Allan Houston's contract to save on luxury tax. Otherwise, they'll use their exceptions to add midlevel players or try to swing a trade. Isiah Thomas wants to emulate Phoenix's small-ball style and will act accordingly.


Orlando
Restricted: Andre Barrett, Brandon Hunter, Mark Jones
Unrestricted: Grant Hill (ETO), Andre DeClerq

Comment: Magic have only exceptions to try to lure a power forward. Shareef Abdur-Rahim and Udonis Haslem are high on their list.


Philadelphia
Restricted: Sam Dalembert, Willie Green, Kyle Korver
Unrestricted: Matt Barnes, Michael Bradley (PO), Josh Davis, Jamal Mashburn (ETO), Rodney Rogers

Comment: First order of business is to keep Dalembert, Green and Korver. Dalembert, in particular, could prove expensive, as there's a bustling marketplace for him. Point guard Jeff McInnis is a possible acquisition with an exception.


Phoenix
Restricted: Joe Johnson
Unrestricted: Steven Hunter (PO), Walter McCarty, Bo Outlaw, Paul Shirley, Jake Voskuhl (PO)

Comment: Focus is on re-signing Johnson and passing out Amare Stoudemire's extension. Johnson will prove costly. They'll also pursue Michael Finley if Dallas waives him, and re-sign Hunter if they can get him for the $1.6 million exception.


Portland
Restricted: Richie Frahm
Unrestricted: Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Damon Stoudamire

Comment: Abdur-Rahim and Stoudamire are good as gone, although they could be signed for the purposes of a trade. Blazers will pursue a backup power forward and a shooting guard with their exceptions. Oh, yeah, they need a coach, too.


Sacramento
Restricted: Erik Daniels, Maurice Evans, Darius Songaila
Unrestricted: Eddie House, Cuttino Mobley

Comment: Kings say they want to keep Mobley but won't get carried away with an offer. They'll also try to re-sign Evans and Songaila. Otherwise, they're in a holding pattern.


San Antonio
Restricted: Devin Brown, Linton Johnson
Unrestricted: Robert Horry, Sean Marks, Tony Massenburg, Glenn Robinson, Mike Wilks

Comment: Horry opted out of his minimum contract but wants to remain a Spur. He also would consider Miami if the offer isn't right in San Antonio. Spurs likely will use midlevel exception on Argentine forward Luis Scola.


Seattle
Restricted: Ron Murray, Vladimir Radmanovic, Damien Wilkins
Unrestricted: Ray Allen, Mateen Cleaves, Antonio Daniels, Reggie Evans, Danny Fortson (ETO), Jerome James, Vitaly Potapenko

Comment: Sonics are in flux. Coach Nate McMillan is exploring his options, although he has a four-year, $18 million offer on the table. Allen, the best free agent of the class, will see if he can attract a max offer and force the Sonics into a sign-and-trade.


Toronto
Restricted: Matt Bonner, Pape Sow
Unrestricted: Omar Cook, Donyell Marshall, Milt Palacio, Jalen Rose (ETO), Aaron Williams (ETO)

Comment: Marshall won't re-sign and will have offers to choose from. Palacio probably is gone, too. Raptors could look to trade forwards Aaron Williams and Eric Williams.


Utah
Restricted: Keith McLeod
Unrestricted: Raja Bell, Howard Eisley, Ben Handlogten, Randy Livingston

Comment: Jazz don't have money to burn like they did the past two summers, so they'll focus on exception contracts. They hope to keep Bell, but he reportedly has agreed to terms with Phoenix.


Washington
Restricted: Steve Blake, Kwame Brown
Unrestricted: Damone Brown, Juan Dixon, Larry Hughes, Anthony Peeler, Laron Profit, Michael Ruffin

Comment: Wizards will face tough call on Kwame Brown if he gets a major offer, as former No. 1 pick remains an enigma. Top priority is re-signing Hughes, who is among the top free agents. Atlanta
