Default Which FA's to sign ?

Simple topic, which moves do you want the cavaliers to make in free agency ? (be realistic)

Here's what I would like:

Sign Marcus banks for the MLE over 3-5 years
Sign Jackie Butler for the LLE over 3 years

Let Drew Gooden go.

Ofrcourse those are assuming we can't do a S&T for Gooden, best case scenario being Gooden for Watson if the Sonics lose Wilcox to another team.

And ofcourse dump Z, Snow and Hughes if we can get away with it, though Hughes is less of a priority.

yea signing Marcus Banks would be good and he can start and let Snow come in during crunch time and use his expierience even though he needs to be traded.

Francisco Elson is a 7-foot center who averaged 4.9 points and 4.7 rebounds in 72 games with Denver last season. Elson, however, is a restricted free agent and the Nuggets likely would match a salary offer from another team that did not go past $2.5 million per year.


We need a backup center.

I like Z, but he is too slow to run the court. He is better suited for the half court game. We have had Battie and Henderson as backups, but they are average at best. We need to develop someone with better skills and Elson has some time under his belt, so it will be a quicker development.

Anderson is a good Power Forward, but not physically strong enough yet to go against the elite bigs for more than partial and limited minutes.

Remember, some players can play with tremendous energy for limited minutes, but this does not translate to double production with more playing time.

Martynus is still too skinny to provide many minutes. I wish they would force him to eat and get him some time in some development league. Last year seemed like a complete loss, though he has shown some promise in some of the summer league games.

Elson is a young center who is developing fast. Can rebound, is very fast can run the court and can hit the shot inside. For 2.5 mil, he is a great steal.

This still leaves open the 5.25 MLE.

I think our big men are good, and we should focus more on getting someone who can shoot consistantly like Eddie House (besides his flop in the playoffs).
