How do we bring BIG names to SMALL cities?

There has been ample discussion on how to go about acquiring names like Deron Williams, Dwight Howard, James Harden, and so forth. This old insidehoops thread got me contemplating the reality of the FA Market. (the content of the thread is not worth reading it was just fodder for thought) Aside from $$$, what are some other reasons for a player to uproot from a big market and relocate to the NW long term? What business, endorsement, real estate, lifestyle, etc opportunities are available for them? It made sense for B-Roy and Jamal Crawford as they call this area home. Joel Przybilla also came out of retirement to play for the Blazers after turning down the Heat because he thought Portland was a great place to raise his family. I see a pattern here, but this obviously is not going to attract top stock. Our fans are the best. Why else should FAs come here?
