    From an Alex Kennedy tweet...

    There are still some notable free agents available. Here is a position-by-position breakdown:

    POINT GUARDS: Derek Fisher, Jonny Flynn, Gilbert Arenas, Jannero Pargo, Baron Davis, Sundiata Gaines, Mike Bibby, Earl Boykins, Mike James, Ben Uzoh, Ish Smith, Anthony Carter, Blake Ahearn, Manny Harris, Patrick Beverley

    SHOOTING GUARDS: Leandro Barbosa, Martell Webster, Marquis Daniels, Michael Redd, Chris Douglas-Roberts, Maurice Evans, Sam Young, Terrel Harris, DeAndre Liggins, Jermaine Taylor, Xavier Silas, Bill Walker, Josh Akognon, Darington Hobson, Rashad McCants

    SMALL FORWARDS: Carlos Delfino, Josh Howard, Matt Barnes, Alonzo Gee, Mickael Pietrus, Tracy McGrady, Josh Childress, Terrence Williams, Donte Green, Shawne Williams, Damion James, Bobby Simmons, Jason Kapono, Derrick Brown, Jamario Moon, Joey Graham, Damian Wilkins, Rasual Butler, Al Thornton, Adam Morrison, DaJuan Summers, James Singleton

    Any thoughts on who we target to fill any needs, or do we just leave it as is?

    I highlighted the more interesting players.

    I wonder if any of y'all could put together 2 or 3 competitive teams from the above list...it looks pretty bleh.

    A team of

    Gilbert Arenas
    Leandro Barbosa
    T-Will
    Andray Blatche
    Greg Oden

    Would be a playoff team in the East....:grin:

    I would take a chance on Blatche for the minimum, Oden too if he can actually play.

    Anyone interested in bringing back T-Will?

    Can I get a hit off that? Sativa or Indica? Smells good from here, man.

    We have enough role players on our roster.

    Your done. The roster is full. Short of making a trade there is no room for middling talent to pump our win total by half a game at this point. We got enough to do all of that already and enough to spread out those rookie minutes just enough as it is.

    Role players and trash, we don't need any of that.

    Wouldn't mind bringing Ish back in. Brian Scalabrine would be fun too to fill that wise-veteran role.

    I assume you meant to post this in the Dish.

    I've always wondered how teams of free agents would do in the league, I usually try out an association with a team of free agents in 2K.

    Anyway, going from your list:

    Arenas/Smith
    McGrady/Barbosa/Redd
    Delfino/Gee/Kapono
    Blatche/Yi/Amundson
    Oden/Okur

    Thought you highlighted some interesting players, but I don't see much interesting in almost any players you highlighted.

    I'd be willing to give Oden a shot. Why not?

    Normally I would, but I think there's a reason no team has touched him for nearly two years. His medical records must be worse than you or I know.

    Still, a 2 year, league minimum deal with a team option would be nice. We could play him about 10 minutes. If he doesn't hold up, we let him go.

    We actually need to start getting rid of people, like yesterday.

    I'd roll with what we've got. What'd be the point to making additions at this point? It's not like we need more wins at this particular point. We have lots of young'uns that need the burn and we need to "rebuild", as some people like to call it, our way to a high draft pick. The sooner we get to develop talent, the sooner we get around to winning.

    I would to. I have faith that Portland's doctors just suck that much and really just ruined his and Roy's career.

    Agreed. Former 1st overall pick, only 24 years old. Maybe he can turn around his career if he gets healthier?
