.... he would be a nice piece for the Pacers though

I think you're underrating him. Smart player. Knows how to get good shots, rarely takes a bad one. Killer player in the pick and pop. Limited athlete, which hurts him defensively but tough which almost makes up for it. His pick and roll defense went up a notch this year under Monty Williams, too.

He's not a franchise player but he's still good.

I'd say he's a rich man's Kurt Thomas, which is a compliment, as Kurt Thomas has been a contributor on some very good teams. Smart big guys with nice touch like Kurt (and KG, Juwan Howard, Karl Malone, Webber etc.) stay effective in the league for a long time, too - longer than most athletic 4's.

West should be useful into his mid-30's, as will dudes like Boozer and Al Horford. Something to take into account.

They are in a pickle because they might want to bank on keeping D-Will , but IMO he walks and heads to NY.

So unless a player like West that were to come to the Nets could get some guarennteeeee from D-Will , I doubt he would sign.
Humphries is horrible. Worst starting PF I can think of, and his rebounding stats are massively inflated.

History lesson for you.

KG kind of counts, as a sign and trade. If you don't count him, then:
Shaquille O'Neal
Jermaine O'Neal
Delonte West
Rasheed Wallace
Stephon Marbury
PJ Brown
James Posey
....................
Dominique Wilkins
David Wesley

Why so few free agents? The Celtics have always been master drafters, and have traded for some amazing talent over the years. There's no arguing with that, because they have the most NBA championships in the history of the NBA.

So free agents? Who cares.
