    This is a list of the remaining available free agents. We have up until April 26th if we would like to add another impact player.

    After the Pacers loss it was clear that we need a rebounding big man.

    With Lowry and Martin likely gone until mid to late April / early May, we could really use a wing scorer...T-W....?

    Who do you think we should target or attempt to add?

    Point Guards: Allen Iverson, Eddie House, Mike James, Anthony Carter, Antonio Daniels, Luther Head, Will Conroy, Marcus Banks, Mike Wilks, Mardy Collins, Sherron Collins, Zabian Dowdell, Lester Hudson, Armon Johnson, Gabe Pruitt and Terrico White.

    Shooting Guards: Michael Finley, Rasual Butler, Keith Bogans, Larry Hughes, Stephen Graham, Othyus Jeffers, Willie Warren, Jermaine Taylor, Darington Hobson, Durrell Summers, Xavier Silas, Quinton Ross, Morris Peterson, Derrick Byars and Flip Murray.

    Small Forwards: James Posey, Al Thornton, Jason Kapono, Renaldo Balkman, Jamario Moon, Joey Graham, Da’Sean Butler, Darius Miles, Julian Wright, Devean George, Gilbert Brown, DaJuan Summers, Marqus Blakely and Bonzi Wells.

    Power Forwards: Jeff Green, Rasheed Wallace, Derrick Caracter, Josh Powell, Leon Powe, Jeff Adrien, Solomon Jones, Mikki Moore, Joe Smith, Sean Williams, Brian Skinner, Michael Ruffin, Ryan Reid, Darnell Jackson, Joey Dorsey and Ike Diogu.

    Centers: Mehmet Okur, Dan Gadzuric, Earl Barron, Francisco Elson, D.J. Mbenga, Hamady Ndiaye, Fabricio Oberto, Jarron Collins, Melvin Ely, Chris Hunter, Dwayne Jones, Sean Marks, Garret Siler, Darius Songaila, Etan Thomas and Jake Voskuhl.

    I'd rather see what Morris can do with regular minutes.

    I wouldn't mind having Jeff Green if he's healthy.

    This.

    Not that I think Morris will immediately contribute, but that list of free agents is not impressive. It's a little late in the day to be looking for help in free agency. Remember, the team did have 3 open spots and filled them with Boykins, Fortson and Malcom Thomas (assigned to DLeague). Seems this would suggest that the front office isn't really that high on the list above.

    Im not sure if you would accurately classify Stephon Marbury as a free agent but you might want to throw his name up there.

    But yeah, the list is not that impressive.


    I actually think that Morris has played pretty well in the small amount of minutes he has played at least defensively. On offense he doesn't really fit in the game scheme so Im not sure how much he will ever play down the stretch without a few different offensive sets to run through him, but Im sure they would trust him over any free agent wing out there.

    Neither would the Celtics, who will be paying Jeff Green a handsome salary once he gets healthy. He's what many of us want Marcus Morris to become, plus he's an inch taller.

    I just had a look over it, and it does look a little grim...but if faced with a choice which 3 would you bring to town to look at?

    In other words who would be your top 3 on that list?

    None of the guys listed are "impact players."

    Jeff Green seems like the only likely candidate. I want to see Marcus Morris play more before we would consider going that route though. Basically the same player style wise.

    Jeff Green is out for the year with heart surgery, and after that he belongs to the C's as a RFA

    some of those guys are out for the year, aren't they?

    De'sean butler...might be worth a look. Coming off an injury, yo never know when things will just click together and he'll be back to what he was, or close to it. Unfortunately he's got parsons and Bud in front of him. RGV should be an option though.

    During one of Bullard online question/answer sessions I asked him if Allen Iverson would be a better 10 day contract than a dleaguer. I made it clear that I am neither an A.I. fan nor stupid enough to recommend the Rockets pick him up, I'm just asking out of curisoity. Bullard avoided the question but said the Rockets were not looking for a pg. Days later they signed Boykins. My question still remains. Regardless of the **** storm he brings with him, is A.I. worse than dleaguers? I'm assuming no one really knows except Allen and it's probably yeah, he sucks and needs to disappear.

    the problem is the **** storm he brings. He doesn't want to play team ball or within the system. That's why it didn't work out in Memphis.
