NBA Free Agents 2011: Potential Signees for and All 30 Teams

0 of 30

    The 2011 NBA free-agent class lacks the larger-than-life names that hijacked the summer of 2010, but there are still plenty of quality players up for grabs.

    With intelligent signings, each team has an opportunity to improve by adding bona fide role players. And while no move will have the magnitude of last year's various signings, each team has the ability to slide up a place or two on the totem pole.

    Of course, nobody (not even the parties involved) has any idea what the new collective bargaining agreement will look like. It's possible that the new CBA will have seismic effects on how the free agency process is conducted, including how much money each team is allowed to spend.

    But for the purposes of this article, we will assume that the new CBA is at least somewhat similar to the current one.

    With that said, here are possible signings that each team would be wise to pursue.

Atlanta Hawks

1 of 30

    DENVER, CO - MARCH 02:  Joel Pryzbilla #10 of the Charlotte Bobcats takes a free throw against the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center on March 2, 2011 in Denver, Colorado. The Nuggets defeated the Bobcats 120-80.NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges a
    Doug Pensinger/Getty Images

    Needs: Center, backup shooting guard

    Options: Unfortunately for Atlanta, they already have over $58 million being dispersed to seven players. That's right around the salary cap for the 2010-11 season, but next year's cap will likely be closer to $50 million.

    It's doubtful that they will be able to pay Jamal Crawford next year, leaving a gap on the bench at the 2-guard spot. The Hawks may want to trade Josh Smith and the $25 million he's owed over the next two years in order to give themselves some flexibility.

    At center, Atlanta could conceivably add Nazr Mohammed or Joel Przybilla. For Joe Johnson's backup, DeShawn Stevenson or Shannon Brown would both fit well.

Boston Celtics

2 of 30

    MIAMI, FL - MAY 11: Ray Allen #20 of the Boston Celtics shoots a jump shot during Game Five of the Eastern Conference Semifinals of the 2011 NBA Playoffs against the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena on May 11, 2011 in Miami, Florida. NOTE TO USER: Us
    Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images

    Needs: Center, retain Ray Allen

    Options: The Celtics have a ton of money tied up in other players, so they won't be making any groundbreaking moves. Allen has a $10 million player option, but I expect him to return to Boston due to his good relations with Doc Rivers and the rest of the Celtics' core.

    Jermaine O'Neal is signed for next year, assuming he doesn't retire. But even with him back, they'll need to add a cheap center capable of starting.

    Aaron Gray—and I can't believe I'm actually writing this—was fairly effective in the playoffs against Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol. He also made just under $1 million last year, meaning he's one of the few big men Boston could afford.

Charlotte Bobcats

3 of 30

    CHARLOTTE, NC - FEBRUARY 25:  Owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, Michael Jordan yells during their game against the Sacramento Kings at Time Warner Cable Arena on February 25, 2011 in Charlotte, North Carolina. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and a
    Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

    Needs: Everything

    Options: Looking at Charlotte's depth chart, Bobcats fans (all 12 of them) must get pretty depressed. And this isn't going to help one bit.

    The Bobcats literally need upgrades at every position, except maybe small forward depending on how you feel about Stephen Jackson right now.

    After their everyone-must-go salary dumping moves at the trade deadline, the Bobcats clearly decided to rebuild through the draft over the next few years.

    Some Charlotte fans have even talked themselves into thinking they have a shot of landing Chris Paul and Dwight Howard in 2012, but that's just ridiculous.

    Good luck Charlotte. I have no idea how to fix this team, which means I have at least one thing in common with Michael Jordan.

Chicago Bulls

4 of 30

    AUBURN HILLS, MI - MARCH 23:  Richard Hamilton #32 of the Detroit Pistons gets a shot off over Dwyane Wade #3 of the Miami Heat at The Palace of Auburn Hills on March 23, 2011 in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Miami won the game 100-94. NOTE TO USER: User expres
    Gregory Shamus/Getty Images

    Needs: Shooting guard

    Options: The Bulls' best option may be to hope that Richard Hamilton is traded and then bought out, which is looking highly possible at this point. Hamilton would be a perfect fit in Chicago.

    But if Hamilton isn't traded/bought out, there are still other options. O.J. Mayo might be available via trade, and I'm sure Chicago will be talking with Memphis at some point this summer.

    Jamal Crawford, Jason Richardson and J.R. Smith will all likely be too expensive for Chicago, but they reportedly love Klay Thompson of Washington State, and may move up to draft him.

Cleveland Cavaliers

5 of 30

    OAKLAND, CA - DECEMBER 10:  Reggie Williams #55 of the Golden State Warriors goes up for a dunk against Lebron James #6 of the Miami Heat at Oracle Arena on December 10, 2010 in Oakland, California. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees tha
    Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

    Needs: Shooting guard, small forward

    Options: With the No. 1 and No. 4 picks in the draft, the Cavs will likely draft point guard Kyrie Irving first and big man Enes Kanter fourth. That means Cleveland would have a promising young core of Irving, Kanter and J.J. Hickson.

    Not bad considering what their future looked like at the beginning of this season.

    At shooting guard, they could re-sign Anthony Parker or chase after DeShawn Stevenson or Shannon Brown. However, Stevenson and Brown will likely sign with a contender.

    At small forward, Reggie Williams or Al Thornton would be great young additions to the building blocks already in place.

Dallas Mavericks

6 of 30

    MIAMI, FL - JUNE 02:  Tyson Chandler #6 of the Dallas Mavericks stands during the performace of the National Anthem against the Miami Heat in Game Two of the 2011 NBA Finals at American Airlines Arena on June 2, 2011 in Miami, Florida. NOTE TO USER: User
    Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images

    Needs: Re-sign Tyson Chandler, J.J. Barea

    Options: Dallas is currently competing for the title, in large part because of Chandler's defensive presence and Barea's penetration ability.

    The Mavericks' best move would be to re-sign both guys and take another crack at the title next year.

Denver Nuggets

7 of 30

    OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - APRIL 27: Nene Hilario #31 of the Denver Nuggets drives to the basket against Kendrick Perkins #5 of the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game Five of the Western Conference Quarterfinals in the 2011 NBA Playoffs on April 27, 2011 at the Ford
    Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images

    Needs: Re-sign Nene, match offers for Arron Afflalo 

    Options: Denver is an incredibly deep team, even if they let Kenyon Martin and J.R. Smith walk. But Nene is one of the best centers in the league and a huge key to Denver's recent success. They would be wise to bring him back.

    Afflalo is a superb defender, efficient scorer, and excellent teammate. He would benefit greatly from more minutes, and he will have them in Smith's absence. If the Nuggets retain both, they will be one of the top five teams in the West next year.

Detroit Pistons

8 of 30

    WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 26: Josh Howard #5 of the Washington Wizards against the Dallas Mavericks  at the Verizon Center on February 26, 2011 in Washington, DC. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading and or using this
    Rob Carr/Getty Images

    Needs: Everything except for center

    Options: Big man Greg Monroe had an excellent rookie season, providing the lone bright spot in an otherwise horrid year for Detroit.

    Tayshaun Prince comes off the books this summer, leaving the Pistons with some financial flexibility and a vacant role at the starting small forward position.

    Backup Austin Daye could see more minutes, but look for Detroit to pursue another guy to fill the 3 spot. They could afford Caron Butler or Shane Battier, but both will most likely sign with a contender. More likely options include Reggie Williams, Al Thornton or Josh Howard.

Golden State Warriors

9 of 30

    MIAMI, FL - JUNE 02:  Tyson Chandler #6 of the Dallas Mavericks looks on against the Miami Heat in Game Two of the 2011 NBA Finals at American Airlines Arena on June 2, 2011 in Miami, Florida. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by
    Ronald Martinez/Getty Images

    Needs: Center

    Options: The Warriors will likely continue to give Epke Udoh reps at starting center, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them make an offer to Tyson Chandler.

    The Warriors are absolutely dreadful defensively and Chandler would be a perfect fit. However, Chandler seems quite happy in Dallas (playoff success can do that) and I would bet on him re-signing with the Mavs.

    They could also attempt to pry restricted free agent DeAndre Jordan away from the Clippers. Jordan certainly has Chandler-esque potential.

Houston Rockets

10 of 30

    MEMPHIS, TN - MAY 09:  Marc Gasol #33 of the Memphis Grizzlies celebrates during the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game Four of the Western Conference Semifinals in the 2011 NBA Playoffs at FedExForum on May 9, 2011 in Memphis, Tennessee. NOTE
    Andy Lyons/Getty Images

    Needs: Center

    Options: Chuck Hayes has done an admirable job in Houston, but you can only get so far with a 6'6" center in today's NBA.

    Houston should make an offer to every big-time center they can, because the rest of their team is solid. If the Rockets could add Marc Gasol or Nene, they would instantly rise to the top five or six in the West.

    They could also use a little luck, which they've been severely deprived of lately.

Indiana Pacers

11 of 30

    PHOENIX, AZ - MARCH 27:  Grant Hill  #33 of the Phoenix Suns drives the ball past  Jason Kidd #2 of the Dallas Mavericks during the NBA game at US Airways Center on March 27, 2011 in Phoenix, Arizona.  The Mavericks defeated the Suns 91-83.  NOTE TO USER:
    Christian Petersen/Getty Images

    Needs: Depth, experience

    Options: The Pacers have a young, talented starting lineup that has a promising future. They are clearly a feisty group, as we saw in their first-round battle with top-seeded Chicago.

    Now they just need some reliable, experienced guys coming off the bench, particularly at the small forward position.

    Ideal pickups would be Grant Hill or Shane Battier, but both will probably pursue a job with an immediate title contender, and Indiana is still a couple years away.

    James Jones and Jason Kapono are decent options, as both would provide some much-needed outside shooting.

Los Angeles Clippers

12 of 30

    ORLANDO, FL - JANUARY 24:  Tayshaun Prince #22 of the Detroit Pistons attempts to block the pass of Gilbert Arenas #1 of the Orlando Magic during the game at Amway Arena on January 24, 2011 in Orlando, Florida.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges a
    Sam Greenwood/Getty Images

    Needs: Small forward, retain DeAndre Jordan

    Options: For the first time in quite a while, the Clippers are set at four positions. Blake Griffin, Eric Gordon, Mo Williams and DeAndre Jordan form a very promising core.

    They just need to fill out the starting lineup with a quality small forward. I think Tayshaun Prince would be an excellent pickup, as would Shane Battier.

    Another possibility is to ship Chris Kaman, a bench player, and a couple to draft picks to Philadelphia for Andre Iguodala. The Sixers need a center and want more playing time for Evan Turner, so this trade is very possible.

    A Griffin, Gordon, Iguodala, Williams and Jordan starting lineup would ensure the Clippers a trip to the playoffs, as well as the undisputed title of most exciting team in the league.

Los Angeles Lakers

13 of 30

    PHOENIX, AZ - APRIL 13:  Aaron Brooks #0 of the Phoenix Suns drives the ball against George Hill #4 of the San Antonio Spurs during the NBA game at US Airways Center on April 13, 2011 in Phoenix, Arizona.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agr
    Christian Petersen/Getty Images

    Needs: Point guard

    Options: The Lakers desperately need a point guard, as Derek Fisher's corpse got lit up repeatedly in L.A.'s disappointing playoff run. I've always loved Fish, but Chris Paul ran a clinic against him, and J.J. Barea followed suit.

    Unfortunately for the Lakers, the point guard crop in this year's free-agent class doesn't feature a lot of desirable candidates. The best options would be Aaron Brooks or Rodney Stuckey, but both are restricted free agents and could be retained by their teams.

    If the Lakers want an ideal fix for their poor point guard play, they may have to get creative and sacrifice a piece or two via trade.

Memphis Grizzlies

14 of 30

    INDIANAPOLIS, IN - APRIL 23: Josh McRoberts #32 of the Indiana Pacers puts up a shot against Taj Gibson #22 of the Chicago Bulls in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in the 2011 NBA Playoffs at Conseco Fieldhouse on April 23, 2011 in India
    Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

    Needs: Re-sign Marc Gasol/Shane Battier, frontcourt depth

    Options: Locking up Gasol is priority number one, but all indications are that he is happy in Memphis and wants to stay. I would also expect Battier to stay since he surely wants to play for a contender at this point in his career.

    That means that the Grizzlies are pretty much set for a while, and just need to add a few complementary pieces.

    Josh McRoberts of Indiana would be a solid backup power forward, as would veteran Troy Murphy.

Miami Heat

15 of 30

    MIAMI, FL - JUNE 02:  (L-R) Dwyane Wade #3 and LeBron James #6 of the Miami Heat react after a play against the Dallas Mavericks in Game Two of the 2011 NBA Finals at American Airlines Arena on June 2, 2011 in Miami, Florida. NOTE TO USER: User expressly
    Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images

    Needs: Nothing.

    Options: I would say that the Heat need a point guard and center, but I think Spoelstra's crew have proven this postseason that they don't need anything else.

    Joel Anthony is a perfect center for this team, a defensive aficionado who doesn't need to take shots. And they could throw one of LeBron's kids in there at point guard and still compete for the title. 

    As much as people hated it, the Heat's plan as worked to perfection. With two of the top five players in the league, and three of the top 15, it doesn't really matter who else is on the court.

Milwaukee Bucks

16 of 30

    WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 30:  James Jones #22 of the Miami Heat celebrates after making a shot against the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center on March 30, 2011 in Washington, DC. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloadin
    Rob Carr/Getty Images

    Needs: Shooters, shooters, shooters

    Options: After last year's horrid offensive exhibition, the Bucks need all the outside shooting they can get. Brandon Jennings is a quality young point guard with enormous potential, he just needs someone who can hit shots when he gives them the ball.

    Fortunately for Milwaukee, there are plenty of quality three-point shooters in this year's free-agent class. Jason Kapono, James Jones, Peja Stojakovic and Anthony Parker would all be welcome additions for the Bucks.

Minnesota Timberwolves

17 of 30

    David Ramos/Getty Images

    Needs: Experience

    Options: With Ricky Rubio reportedly coming to the NBA next season, the Timberwolves point guard position is somewhat solidified. And obviously Kevin Love is holding down the post at the power forward spot.

    Minnesota desperately needs proven commodities at shooting guard, small forward and center. Unfortunately, I don't think Minnesota is going to attract any top-tier free agents.

    Their best move would be to use their abundance of assets (Michael Beasley, Wes Johnson, Anthony Randolph, the No. 2 overall pick) to bring in some quality players via trade.

New Jersey Nets

18 of 30

    DENVER, CO - APRIL 23:  J.R. Smith #5 of the Denver Nuggets makes a three point over Serge Ibaka #9 of the Oklahoma City Thunder in the final minute of the in Game Three of the Western Conference Quarterfinals in the 2011 NBA Playoffs on April 23, 2011 at
    Doug Pensinger/Getty Images

    Needs: Shooting guard, small foward, re-sign Kris Humphries

    Options: With Deron Williams and Brook Lopez, the Nets have a solid guard/center combo going foward. However, the rest of the starting lineup could use some upgrades.

    I doubt New Jersey will be overly active this offseason, given that they are gunning for Dwight Howard in the summer of 2012.

    I think J.R. Smith would be a great option at shooting guard, as long as Avery Johnson can get through to him. But if they spend the money needed to bring in Smith, they likely won't have any cash available for a small forward.

New Orleans Hornets

19 of 30

    ATLANTA, GA - APRIL 28:  Jason Richardson #23 of the Orlando Magic drives against Jason Collins #34 of the Atlanta Hawks during Game Six of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in the 2011 NBA Playoffs at Philips Arena on April 28, 2011 in Atlanta, Georgi
    Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

    Needs: Re-sign David West, shooting guard

    Options: Re-signing West should be the Hornets' top priority, as it would go a long way towards ensuring Chris Paul sticks around.

    But they also need an upgrade at the shooting guard position. I have nothing against Marco Belinelli, but Chris Paul isn't signing a long-term deal so he can throw the ball to Belinelli.

    The Hornets need to make a big splash at 2-guard, and I'd expect them to pursue Jason Richardson, Jamal Crawford and J.R. Smith.

New York Knicks

20 of 30

    MIAMI, FL - JUNE 02:  Jose Juan Barea #11 of the Dallas Mavericks drives for a shot attempt against Chris Bosh #1 and Dwyane Wade #3 of the Miami Heat in Game Two of the 2011 NBA Finals at American Airlines Arena on June 2, 2011 in Miami, Florida. NOTE TO
    Ronald Martinez/Getty Images

    Needs: Center, backup point guard

    Options: I doubt New York will make any serious moves, because they are hoping to land either Dwight Howard, Chris Paul or both in 2012.

    However, if they decided Howard wouldn't be an option, they could go after Tyson Chandler, who is essentially a slightly lesser version of Howard.

    They also need a point guard to relieve Chauncey Billups. J.J. Barea would be a beautiful fit in Mike D'Antoni's system, and the Knicks could play him at the same time as Billups, similar to what Dallas is currently doing with Barea and Jason Kidd.

Oklahoma City Thunder

21 of 30

    OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - MAY 23:  Serge Ibaka #9 of the Oklahoma City Thunder shoots over Peja Stojakovic #16 of the Dallas Mavericks in the second half in Game Four of the Western Conference Finals during the 2011 NBA Playoffs at Oklahoma City Arena on May 23
    Christian Petersen/Getty Images

    Needs: Interior scoring

    Options: The Thunder's kryptonite in the Western Conference Finals was their lack of an offensive post presence.

    Serge Ibaka, Kendrick Perkins and Nick Collison are excellent players, but they are all defensive oriented. At some point you have to be able to score inside.

    Unfortunately, there isn't a premium of offensive big men in this year's crop. The best option for the Thunder may be to try to develop the 22-year-old Ibaka into a reliable scorer, which is certainly possible.

Orlando Magic

22 of 30

    CHICAGO - NOVEMBER 01: Greg Oden #52 of the Portland Trail Blazers watches from the bench as his teammates take on the Chicago Bulls at the United Center on November 1, 2010 in Chicago, Illinois. The Bulls defeated the Trail Blazers 110-98. NOTE TO USER:
    Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

    Needs: Backup center

    Options: Orlando desperately needs a reliable backup for Dwight Howard. Joel Przybilla or Samuel Dalembert would a solid addition to help lift some pressure off D12's enormous shoulders.

    If the Magic are feeling lucky, they could probably land Greg Oden for a fairly cheap price as well, which would be incredibly interesting if nothing else.

Philadelphia 76ers

23 of 30

    MIAMI, FL - APRIL 27: Thaddeus Young #21 of the Philadelphia 76ers shoots over James Jones #22 and Joel Anthony #50 of the Miami Heat during game five of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in the 2011 NBA Playoffs at American Airlines Arena on April 27,
    Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images

    Needs: Retain Thaddeus Young, center

    Options: The Sixers have a very promising young core built around Jrue Holiday, Jodie Meeks, Evan Turner and Thaddeus Young. Now they just need a center to fill out the lineup.

    However, none of the free-agent centers would be a great fit. Philly's best option is to shop Andre Iguodala around and see if they can get a quality big in return.

Phoenix Suns

24 of 30

    LOS ANGELES, CA - APRIL 26:  Carl Landry #24 of the New Orleans Hornets goes up for a layup in front of Lamar Odom #7 of the Los Angeles Lakers in the second half in Game Five of the Western Conference Quarterfinals in the 2011 NBA Playoffs on April 26, 2
    Harry How/Getty Images

    Needs: Power forward

    Options: After Amar'e Stoudemire bolted for New York, Phoenix tried to fill the void with Hakim Warrick, Channing Frye and Hedo Turkoglu.

    This failed miserably, and the Suns once again find themselves in the market for a power forward. But they already have so much money invested in other positions that getting a real impact player isn't too likely.

    Carl Landry and Kris Humphries are both possibilities.

Portland Trail Blazers

25 of 30

    PORTLAND, OR - APRIL 21:  Andre Miller #24 of the Portland Trail Blazers shoots the ball against Brendan Haywood #33 of the Dallas Mavericks in Game Three of the Western Conference Quarterfinals in the 2011 NBA Playoffs on April 21, 2011 at the Rose Garde
    Jonathan Ferrey/Getty Images

    Needs: Bring everyone back

    Options: The Blazers have team options on Rudy Fernandez, Andre Miller and Nicolas Batum. Everyone else is locked up through at least next year.

    Portland was eliminated in the first round, but they were undoubtedly a scary team come playoff time. I don't think Portland needs to make any changes.

Sacramento Kings

26 of 30

    HOUSTON, TX - APRIL 04:  Kemba Walker #15 of the Connecticut Huskies handles the ball against the Butler Bulldogs during the National Championship Game of the 2011 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament at Reliant Stadium on April 4, 2011 in Houston,
    Ronald Martinez/Getty Images

    Needs: Point guard, center

    Options: I think it's about time that Sacramento give up on the Tyreke-Evans-as-a-point-guard project and accept the fact that the man is clearly a shooting guard.

    They'll probably look to the draft for a point guard (Kemba Walker, most likely).

    They currently have a ridiculously low salary, which would usually mean they could just throw a boatload of money at Tyson Chandler, Marc Gasol or Nene. However, the Maloof brothers are completely broke, and will likely settle for the cheapest guy they can find.

San Antonio Spurs

27 of 30

    OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - APRIL 27: Nene Hilario #31 of the Denver Nuggets looks to shoot the ball against Nick Collison #4 of the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game Five of the Western Conference Quarterfinals in the 2011 NBA Playoffs on April 27, 2011 at the Ford
    Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images

    Need: Center

    Options: In the Spurs' first-round series against Memphis, Tim Duncan, DeJaun Blair and Antonio McDyess got absolutely eaten alive inside.

    It would be a stretch financially, but if the Spurs can sign Nene they will instantly be back in the mix in the West.

Toronto Raptors

28 of 30

    OAKLAND, CA - MARCH 25: DeMar DeRozan #10 of the Toronto Raptors in action against the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena on March 25, 2011 in Oakland, California. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading and or using t
    Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

    Needs: Everything

    Options: Toronto is in the same boat as Charlotte, in that they only have one or two good players. DeMar DeRozan has a lot of potential, and Andrea Bargnani is serviceable, but after that they have nothing.

    It's going to be a long, painful rebuilding process for Toronto. I don't even know where to start, and I doubt their management does either.

Utah Jazz

29 of 30

    OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - APRIL 27: Wilson Chandler #21 of the Denver Nuggets drives to the basket against Nick Collison #4 of the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game Five of the Western Conference Quarterfinals in the 2011 NBA Playoffs on April 27, 2011 at the Ford
    Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images

    Needs: Shooting guard, small forward

    Options: One of these issues will likely be addressed through the draft, but the Jazz would be wise to bring in a proven commodity on the wing.

    Wilson Chandler or Arron Afflalo would be great additions if they could steal either restricted free agent from the Nuggets.

Washington Wizards

30 of 30

    LOS ANGELES, CA - JANUARY 25:  Andrei Kirilenko #47 of the Utah Jazz drives to the basket over Steve Blake #5 of the Los Angeles Lakers in the first half at Staples Center on January 25, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. The Lakers defeated the Jazz 120-91
    Jeff Gross/Getty Images

    Needs: Small forward

    Options: The Wizards have built a solid young core with John Wall, Jordan Crawford, JaVale McGee and Andray Blatche (when he's interested).

    Now, they just need a small forward. Andrei Kirilenko would be a good fit, as would Tayshaun Prince. However, both guys probably won't want to be on such a young team.

    A more realistic option would be Reggie Williams.
