There has been all this talk of all the cap room we will have. I have seen little talk on who would be available to use that cap on (assuming there are no trades). So here's a list, who would you sign that would elevate this team?
|If a player's type reads Restricted it means that the player meets the requirements to be a restricted free agent only if the team presents a qualifying offer in the appropraite amount to the player at the conclusion of the player's current contract. If the qualifying offer is not tendered to the player, the player will be an unrestricted free agent.

So there you have it. The only real big difference maker is Carmello Anthony. Not coming here. So who would you sign and what type of effect do you expect to have on the team. And remember Landry, Dalembert, and Jackson will join that list. Do you resign Landry?
Here is my own opinion on this. I don't believe the restricted free agents will be available. And the good ones will be matched by their original team. Obviously Hortford and Noah really excite me but there is no way we get them. The one guy on the list that might be available is Wilson Chandler, especially if the Knicks go after Anthony. So I will assume we make him an offer and he accepts without the Kinicks matching,
Signed : Wilson Chandler
Our big free agent signing would be :
Signed : Mo Williams
The other players I try to get to Sacramento and assume they will sign mid teir type of contracts :
Signed : Shane Battier, Boris Diaw
The player I hope will take a lesser, maybe incentive laden contract and hope he has a comeback.
Signed Michael Redd.
PG : Mo Williams
SG : Tyreke Evens
SF : Wilson Chandler
PF : Jason Thompson
C : Demarcus Cousins
I really don't follow college ball so I am unsure who might be available with the top 3 picks which I'm sure we will be somewhere up there by seasons end. But this team would finally have outside shooting and a balence of vetern leadership at multiple positions. It doesn't look like an elite squad, but if Tyreke gets right and Cousins develops then it could grow to become a winner. I think the mix would be better. But it's hard to imagine this team making a leap through free agency without Cousins and Tyreke becoming BIGTIME players.
What does anyone else think?
