    Who's gonna be the recipient of DM's iPad on 2013 free agency? Are there any realistic targets now that we have cap space? Deron Williams for sure is a lock for the Mavs.

    you mean 2012 FA right? :confused:

    Deron is a UFA this off-season. I think we have a chance at him signing if we make a good playoff run, and generate some media buzz. If people start to list us as a young up and coming team, it will make us a more attractive destination.

    Williams is a pipe-dream. He is going to Dallas

    Well, 2013 has some pretty good free agents. I think it's actually better than 2012.

    It has to be Eric Gordon. He is one player I would take a chance on even with his injury history

    Williams is going to Dallas, Dwight will join him the season after.

    That's why Dwight opted in, Cuban needed another season to create cap space for him.

    We'll get a good value player like we always do that will keep us right at about a .500 team.

    If they keep Gasol, this is possible because Kobe and Gasol will have about 50 mil between the two of them.

    Its pretty obvious because Deron pretty much said he plans tor etire in the team that he playf for next.

    Dallas is his hometown.

    It doesn't matter who he targets.

    The question is which free agents are targeting the Rockets?

    Answer: none
