1.)Ben Wallace

-Big Ben is definitely the big fish of this free agent class. Hes widely considered the best defensive center in the league and can be a game changer. Hes professed his love for the Detroit Pistons , but that wont stop teams from offering mega-contracts for his services. Its a near-lock he gets a max contract from someone.

Most Likely Destination: Re-signs with Detroit

Dark Horse: Chicago

2.)Peja Stojackovic

-Its become abundantly clear Peja Stojackovic is not a franchise player to build your team around. Though, hes a great #2 option. His 3-point shooting is still deadly, which is why hell be sought after by many teams. Wont Sacramento re-sign him? Thats a tough question to answer considering the season Sacto is having and the fact that Peja will probably demand $10 mill a year.

Most Likely Destination: Chicago

Dark Horse: Miami (via sign and trade)

3.)Al Harrington

-Harrington is having a career year and is still very young. His ability to play both forward positions, and improving lowpost game, will make him very attractive to a team looking for frontcourt talent.

Most Likely Destination: New York

Dark Horse: Indiana

4.)Joel Pryzbilla

-Virtually every team in the league is in need of size and defense at the center position; Pryzbilla brings both. Hes a legit 7footer and has good shot blocking instincts. Hed fit perfectly on a high-octane offensive team in need of a defensive big man that doesnt look to score.

Most Likely Destination: Re-signs with Portland

Dark Horse: Atlanta

5.)Sam Cassell

-Sam I am is having a fantastic season leading the Clippers to their first winning season in many, many years. This alone has increased his market value substantially. Hell definitely get major interest from veteran teams looking for a fiery floor general to help them make a run at the championship.

Most Likely Destination: Dallas

Dark Horse: Memphis

6.)Jason Terry

-Terry has blossomed in Dallas. There are still detractors that say hes a shooting guard in a point guards body, but hes steadily improved each year as a floor general.

Most Likely Destination: Seattle

Dark Horse: Cleveland

7.)Desmond Mason

-This kid is pure athleticism; a game-stopping dunker with an improving perimeter shot. Hes been a fan favorite with every team hes played for.
Most Likely Destination:

Re-signs with Oklahoma City/New Orleans

Dark Horse: Charlotte

8.)Nazr Mohammed

-Mohammed has played very well alongside Tim Duncan. Hes not a force in the middle, but is a consistent presence.

Most Likely Destination: Chicago

Dark Horse: Atlanta

9.)Bonzi Wells

-Having one of his best years as a pro; definitely one
of the best rebounding guards in the league. Plus, hes good for 15-18ppg.

Most Likely Destination: Denver

Dark Horse: Indiana

10.)Drew Gooden

-One of the better young power forwards in the game. His defense still needs work, but hes good for a double-double night in and night out.

Most Likely Destination: New Orleans/Oklahoma City

Dark Horse: New Jersey

Honorable Mention:
Nene, Chris Wilcox, Vladimir Radmanovic, Reggie Evans, Flip Murray, Keith Van Horn, Lorenzon Wright, Melvin Ely, Speedy Claxton, & Matt Harpring

Thanks for the write up. But....the author is retarded.

Terry will most likely resign in Dallas. I don't know about Sam I am, but JET has made it crystal clear that he wants to stay here.

Sam Cassell
Most Likely Destination: Dallas

Jason Terry
Most Likely Destination: Seattle

That would be an interesting swap of talent.

You know....interesting is a great descriptor. I've always liked Sam Cassell. He has a very deep talent set and is having a good year. I tired to do a side-by-side comparison with he and JET but it didn't get very far. Interesting indeed.

I still think JET is a Mav next year, but Sam? Who knows?

01-17-2006, 02:14 PM
I want to see JET wearing blue and green for many years to come, but I sure wouldn't mind being able to watch Sam-I-Am try to make good on his boast that he would make Dirk the MVP...

I think our PG situation will greatly depend on the progression of the one and only Devin Harris, for the rest of this season and into the playoffs...

how old is sam, 48?

alby your 100% right. I think the mavs love terry but they will not pay him 8 or 9 a year to be a back up I just dont see that

I think dropping Terry for Sam could be huge for us. We'd get a guy that's been around the league forever, but is clutch. He won't demand as many minutes as Terry, so Devin will get more PT. I think its mutual, we want him, he wants us. Our offense would run significantly better, and defense...probably wouldn't change much.

No way this happens. I can't see anybody giving Terry more than the MLE, and I can't see the Mavs wanting any part of a 50 year old Cassell. No thanks. Jason Terry will resign with the Mavs, I'm counting on it.

if terry wants the mle hes a mav no doubt. I think he wants more around 7 to 8 and teams will give that to him. Think about teams like the bobcats and jazz.
