Default ESPN's 2008 Free Agent List

I put this in Toronto Raptors cause i'm asking who we can grab from the Free Agent list but if it belongs in NBA Talk then feel free to move it Doc/Jay/lang

Link - Click Here

Some of these include (UFA's Only) :
  • Sam Cassell
  • Juan Howard
  • Allen Iverson
  • Jermaine O'Neal
  • Smush Parker
  • Shawn Marion
  • Stephon Marbury
  • Keyon Dooling
  • Ron Artest
  • Gilbert Arenas

Who do you think we can grab?

Oh and for some people here:

Unrestricted Free Agents: Can sign with any team.

Restricted Free Agents: Must be allowed to have a counter offer from their team if another team makes one.

Wow... I wouldn't touch any of them... most of them are overpriced hasbeens & cancer guys... the rest are just garbage... OK, maybe Marion but he will ask for too much money and then complain that he is not a star on the team... not worth it...

Well, I can't say the same for players like Smush, Marion, Howard, Dooling etc.

And I think Artest would be great IMO

The ten players listed there are just the best UFA's, not the ones that we could get.

Here are some RFA's:
  • Josh Smith
  • Josh Childress
  • Emeka Okafor
  • Ben Gordon
  • Juwan Howard
  • Andre Iguodala
  • J.R. Smith
  • Daniel Gibson

marion is exactly what we need! Josh Smith would be a nice substitute if we can't get marion.

Ideally, I'd love to see Okafor off that list sign with us. Yeah, it's a pipe dream I know but still. Also, I'm still a fan of Ben Gordon as a 6th man type of guy but not a starter.

JSmoove isn't even feasible considering the Hawks or someone else are going to overpay for him this summer. We can't afford Smith as much as I'd love to see him as a Raptor.

Realistically I don't think any of the names mentioned are being seriously considered by the Raptors. I think the transactions that will be made by the Raptors this summer will be via the trade. If there are any FA pick-ups they'll be minimal ones in my opinion.

Yup, what Dr. Jimmy says.

Raps have what the mid-level?

It'll be little pieces like either a back-up PG or 3rd string PG (depending on how the PG situation pans out) or maybe another diamond in the rough find like Jamario or an underused/potential guy from another team.

I would really like to see Maggette or even Artest in a Raps jersey. We need a gritty SF/PF. They're both a UFA so it's possible and easier to get them, and they both had big numbers this season.
