no, you get bird rights if the person has been with your team for three or more years. pops has been with the team for like a month or two.

and i'm pretty sure we have something like 5 million or something before we hit luxury tax. anybody want to correct me?

also, i'm not quite sure on bowen and we have demar and wright who can back up turk. even bellinelli has been said to be able to play the 3.

at this point, I would be looking at pf like joe smith(i think he signed with hotlanta), pops, james singleton, steve novak, rick hendrix, shavlik randolph, maceo baston.

here's the rest of them at the list i'm looking at: Basketball Prospectus | Articles | Free Agency 2009
