KAT - wants huge money and thinks he's a star. Also restricted FA and Minn will keep him to sell tickets even if he's overpaid
Hortford - 32 years old and 6'10". Might be worth a look, but may take a 30mill player option and not even hit FA
Cousins - hasn't played yet, but we'll see. He will want to move on for more money, but Lakers have money and Lebron.
Gasol - may be looking to get out with the rocky lockerroom. JJJ is promising, but not as much as Doncic, but he'll be 34 next season.
Myles Turner - Another 6'11" Texas boy. 13pts, 7reb, 4blcks this year for Indy. Not a great rebounder, but worth a look as a 22 year old project. Definitely need defense inside, but our rebounding would look weak if we didn't pair him with a rebounding PF. Turner with Barnes would be a huge step back on the boards.
Deandre Jordan - Top 2-3 rebounder. One of the worst defensive centers. Gonna be 31
Vujecic - Decent rebounder. Good scorer with good hands. Just really bad on defense like Jordan, but two years younger.
Whiteside - Will he ever leave MIA after having such a rocky tenure there? Will he walk away from 27 mill next year (player option). 13/13/2.5 guy who does everything we need from a center (defense, rebounding, and ability to punish cheaters)
Howard - ha! No one wants Superman
Brook Lopez - Powell jr. Rebounds worse than Powell, but slightly more effective shooting jumpers
Valanciunas - 7 foot bruiser who rebounds with the best. Solid team defender. May be able to be pried from Toronto if Kawhi leaves
Kanter - Improving defensively. Really strong rebounding. Smart player who wants out of NYK according to rumors. May be traded to a place that makes him happier mid-season though.

Lots of good choices out there if we don't want Jordan. It may also bring down the prices or make some players available. The era of the 10-10 center demanding a max contract is over luckily.
Kat and Turner signed extensions
