I was thinking about which players might be available through free agency. In my opinion this list is crucial to deciding possible trades or signings. Everyone on here should check it out. It will definitely get some good conversations going im sure. Ill start one after the link.
This list is quite amazing. It really gets me excited that something big could go down. The names just go on and on. For 2011 just to name a few: Tim Duncan, Jamal Crawford, David West, NeNe, Kenyon Martin, Tayshaun Prince, Tyson Chandler.... Frankly, if Paul Allen is willing to go deep into the luxury tax, there are alot of players that are unrestricted free agents who could easily fill gaps in our roster.
For example, after a quick examination of the list, which was updated June 3rd 2011, I saw that Ray Allen is an unrestricted free agent. Ray Allen plays SG which is a position where we have a definite problem, Brandon and Rudy. First of all, We have to keep Brandon. Second of all Rudy isnt working out, he knows it and we know it. Hes even previously asked to be released back to Europe. Hes been one of our most talked about trade chips. Obviously Ray is way better than Rudy, albeit older(35) but he also brings what we are badly needing, dependable and killer outside shooting. Sure Rudy is cheaper, but win now is spend now and you gotta spend big to win in this league. Picking up Ray makes Rudy expendable. And it would certainly make us as a team better. As a discussion this is just a realistic suggestion. It doesnt mean it can or cant, will or wont happen, its just for conversational purposes only.
Just in case you need it, heres a Link to Ray Allens stat page: http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/9/ray-allen
Look over the list, and see what you come up with.
