If I left any potential targets off of the list, let me know.

If anyone is interested, I can keep the thread updated throughout the offseason. Mark out who has signed elsewhere, update with rumors, etc.

I like the potential possibilities here.

I think most of the others will be tough sells. Will honestly depend on who ends up where in FA.

Marvin Williams -- because Utah played him as a stretch 4, but he should be mentioned.

I would add Kris Humphries and Andray Blatche to the list of FA center prospects. Blatche has been a barely ok rebounder this year, but last year he was decent. Humphries has always been a good rebounder and both of them have spent a decent amount of time playing center this year without fouling a ton. Adequate Defense and Rebounding are the 2 key traits I'm looking for in our "starting" big.

Andre Bierdens


I don't know how to feel about Biedrins. Did he lose his ability to play basketball, or has he just been in bad situations like Morrow was? He's certainly worth a look and probably a minimum contract. My only fear is he could be the next Stiemsma, an unworthy veteran that steals minutes from Withey and Ajinca.

Blatche isn't bad on offense either, can knock down a couple shots

I think it's fine to have on the list of possibilities, but Boozer isn't really a potential swap for Gordon, he's competition in the Dump Market. Chicago seems to have 2 primary targets for the offseason, Melo or bringing over Nikola Mirotic from Europe. Both moves require getting Boozer off the books. They have the amnesty option, and they have multiple 1sts this year to help them dump Boozer.

I didn't know about Mirotic until just now. Was thinking if the chase for Melo failed, Boozer for Gordon might be a consolation prize.

What would the Lakers think about Nash for Gordon? Nash would be off of the books next summer. He wouldn't even have to step on the court.

I think any big market team that could have cap space in 2015 will want cap space in 2015. I wouldn't expect the Knicks or Lakers to bite on Gordon. Unlike 2014 FA, the top tier of the 2015 class actually might switch teams if their teams aren't legit contenders next year: Rondo, Marc Gasol, LaMarcus Aldridge, Tony Parker, Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson, etc.

Blatche is one of the most underrated players in the league. Without his mental midget stigma attached to him, I wonder how much he'd actually get paid? He's certainly better than a league min center.

No way Ariza and Okafor come back to us. Burned those bridges.

re: Offseason Targets & Potential Homes for Gordon


He was more than a league minimum center when Washington gave him $35m. He lost out on a lot of money for screwing around with Gil Arenas and not being in game shape after getting paid.

I have always liked him and wanted to get him last season before the Nets did.

Anyway, Brooklyn has a player option on him next season for $1.5m that you imagine they will certainly pick up.
