Pick two 2013' FA's

So if the Blazers have roughly 13.5 million who do you think they should go after?

Here are just a few names that have been thrown out there and could possibly be had for the right price. Dont just post names without stating how much you think they will sign for. Also, be realistic. If you think Pekovic is coming here for 4-6 million keep dreaming and move on. If you think I missed someone, post it. Give some thoughts.

My biggest fear is that Portland has never signed a big-name FA without overpaying. We couldn't even get Turkoglu (Thank you, Mrs Turk). So what makes you think this year will be any different? Will GM Olshey sell ice to the Eskimos or will he find it more difficult than he suspected. I wonder if he ran into that problem this past summer and as a result found ourselves with the worst bench in history.

Centers: Pekovic, Okafor, Dalembert, Mozgov, Haddadi, J. Oneal, Hollins.

Point Guards: Evans, Stuckey, Billups, Jack, Harris.

My personal best guess and possibly best case scenario would be: Dalembert @ 6 mil and Jack @ 7.5 million.

I think Dalembert would address our biggest weakness, our interior defense. His age and experience is a benefit to help Meyers development along to eventually become our staring Center. Jack is the perfect back-up PG/G off the bench. He could also play alongside Lillard as both have size at PG. His past being a former Blazer could be a huge selling point for Olshey.

Remember, if we sign a big free-agent like Pekovic/Evans then that will leave that much less money to sign another free-agent to address our other team needs.
