    Talking Free Agent Breakdown - no trade, It's all about free agent

    Lets see what we have in free agent market this summer:

    Center : Tyson Chandler, Kwame Brown, Oden, Marc Gasol, Samuel Dalembert, Jeff Foster, Kyrylo Fesenko, Dan Gadzuric, Yao Ming, Erick Dampier, Nazr Mohammed, DeAndre Jordan, Joel Przybilla

    Power Forward: NeNe, David West, Glen Davis, Kris Humphries, Carl Landry, Josh McRoberts, Reggie Evans, Kenyon Martin, Yi JianLian

    Small Forward: Tayshaun Prince, Thaddeus Young, Caron Butler, Wilson Chandler, Jeff Green, Grant Hill, Shane Battier, Josh Howard, Reggie Williams, Chris Douglas-Roberts

    Shooting Guard : Jason Richardson, Jamal Crawford, JR Smith, Arron Afflalo, Rodney Stuckey, Marcus Thornton, Marco Belinelli, Tracy McGrady, Anthony Parker, Vince Carter

    Point Guard : Who cares..we have DC and Hill

    So who should we target?

    Center : Resign Jeff Foster first
    Tyson Chandler > Marc Gasol > DeAndre Jordan > Samuel Dalembert
    (Backup plan - Kwame Brown)

    Power Forward : Resign Josh McRoberts first
    NeNe > Glen Davis > David West > Carl Landry
    (Backup plan - Kris Humphries)

    Small Forward :
    Thaddeus Young > Jeff Green > Caron Butler > Wilson Chandler
    (Backup plan - Reggie Williams)

    Shooting Guard :
    Jamal Crawford > Arron Afflalo > Marcus Thornton> Jason Richardson
    (Backup plan - Rodney Stuckey)

    What about Utah's Andrei Kirilenko? I'm not pushing for him, but he's a notable omission. Moreover, he's a player (along with Orlando's Jason Richardson, Atlanta's Jamal Crawford, and Boston's Glen Davis) who might be particularly available in a sign-and-trade (the "middle ground"), since the host team would get something in return.

    Going after any 2s or 3s would be pointless IMO. Chandler would be an amazing pickup but don't see it happening, Jordan would be nice, and I think Dalembert would be a very nice fit if we do pick up a West or Millsap type player. Nene again would be great, but don't see it happening...

    Of those listed, I would pursue Jordan and Nene. We need a back-up C and a starting PF.

    You got one now and he will be far better this coming year than last year.

    Deandre Jordan if he can play PF.

    Nene would be nice, but he's staying put. We need a PF, and the list sucks. Damn, we just can't luck out at all. I'd try Kenyon Martin. He can do smashmouth D.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    I think that we can't get Tyson Chandler / Marc Gasol ..
    So i prefer DeAndre Jordan or Kwame Brown both can reb and defense

    On Power Forward position, we don't really have choice this year

    I like Big Baby, but he's not the defensive stud we're looking for.

    Not a huge need, but I've always liked Chris Douglas-Roberts. Instant offense off the bench—if we could get him cheap.

    Am I the only one who thinks Dalembert would be a very nice fit if he can be had for a reasonable price?? I view him as a poor mans Tyson Chandler, without the injury issues. He certainly intrigues me, especially given TC would be so hard to get.

    No, you're not. I tossed his name out a couple months back.

    'For the right price' (something like $25-30m over 4 yrs), he might be
    the best combo out there in terms of availabilty, reasonable price,
    fit/need at 4/5 and leaving enough bullets in the gun to go after
    the 2012 class of guys.

    Exactly what I said... Give me Kenyon and Joel Prezbilla, some guys to do the dirty work... I think the Clippers will hold on to Jordan, he is their replacement for Kaman, and they were thinking about trading Kaman earlier this season and just Allowing Jordan to have the position.

    I have a couple questions for everyone. First is if/when we trade rush who plays backup SF? I think this position is getting overlooked. We really have no backup SF. The second question is A lot of the guys that are interesting are restricted free agents. So of the RFA's which ones would we have the best shot at? Also if we do have a hard cap which teams are likely not to match our offer?

    I wouldn't be at all upset about signing Dalembert for around 4 years $24-$26 million. Unfortunately the Knicks or Heat will likely end up with him.

    I think George is the starting 2 and backup 3. Danny can play 35 min/game at the 3, then Paul can pick up the other 13 and another 15-20 at the 2. I think always having either Danny or Paul in the game would be a wise decision.

    PG and Dahntay would take care of most of these minutes once/if Rush is gone. Posey may also figure in this if he is still around, and Lance can potentially chip in with a few minutes if needed, furthermore back-up at this position can easily be had through free-agency... this is also assuming Mikey D is gone.

    Yup, that's the problem isn't it. If a 'contender' is interested in a FA, the
    only way that he's coming to Indy is if the Pacers overpay. In Dalembert's
    case, much as I'd like to have him, that makes no sense at all.

    I was told that we had interest in bringing in Tracy McGrady.. Not totally against it but im thinking he would mainly only be good for his veteran leadership.

    Just wanted to share that with you guys.

    I would love to get one of those centers, but they will probably all be worth more than we would want to pay them.

    I can't see why he would want to play here, he would be feeding of Danny's scraps, and hopefully PGs aswell if he continues to develop.

    Our biggest need and what we really need to focus on is a starting PF.

    My favorites (from this list) are Nene, Kris Humphries, maybe Kenyon Martin, but not a fan of his attitude.

    Those guys are unlikely to sign elsewhere so we're probably gonna need to get our PF via trade.

    Aside from PFs, I like Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady. I'd prefer VC however. Though they're at the decline of their careers and we really don't have much room for them at SG now that we have George who will play a portion of his minutes there. Both VC and TMac still have some value, but I think they'll and sign with a veteran team.

    We need a backup center and I'd bring in Kwame Brown.

    You know I've never really considered Kris Humphries, but his per-36 rebounding numbers are sick. Kardashian jokes aside, how smart of a signing would he be? How's his D? Put up a solid 10/10/1 blk in 28 min/game last year in NJ.
