     1. Corey Brewer

    I’m still surprised that the Knicks didn’t even give Brewer a chance. After winning back-to-back championships with the Florida Gators, his career hasn’t necessarily been that of a No. 7 pick, but he’s a glue guy. Just last season, he averaged 13.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 steals per game while starting all 82. And a 6-9, he has the length to bother guys on defense and play multiple positions. The Celtics were trying to make a move for him before the trade deadline, and are in the mix right now as well.

    2. Mike Bibby
    Although it’s almost certain that Bibby will sign with the Heat, he’s definitely generated interest around the League. Despite his drop-off in production, he’s still a 13-year NBA vet and know how to run a team. For any squad in need of some backcourt depth, Bibby is the No. 1 option on the market.

    3. Leon Powe
    All GMs have to do is think back to the 2008 NBA Finals to remember what Powe is capable of. After battling through injuries to begin his stint in Cleveland, it was best for everyone to give him a chance to succeed elsewhere. He’s been drawing interest from Boston and Memphis.

    4. Rasual Butler
    Ever since getting bought out by the Clippers, it’s been reported that Butler would sign with the Bulls. As of right now, nothing has happened. Last season, Butler averaged a career high 11.9 points while starting 64 games in L.A., after averaging 11.2 points in 74 starts in New Orleans the year before. He could fit in well to the rotation in Chicago, or any other team in need of a defensive-minded shooter off the bench.

    5. Jerry Stackhouse
    In February, Stackhouse made sure people knew that he still hadn’t signed his retirement papers with the League. And for good reason. Last year, he signed with the Bucks for the second half of the season and played pretty well. This year, his plan was to compete for a ring in Miami, but that only lasted seven games. “Chicago is one of those teams I keep under the hat,” Stackhouse told The Detroit News. “I don’t think they have that veteran experience on their wings.” If plans with Butler fall through, Stack could be an option. Otherwise, like the Celtics signing Michael Finley last season, he could find his way to a contender.

    Other available free agents: Kelenna AzubuikeSherron Collins, Michael Finley, Larry HughesJared JeffriesMorris PetersonAntoine Walker

    Above is a snippet from DIME on their favorite FA's. (I crossed out Bibby since he's going to Miami.)
    Any of these gather your interest?

    Personally, I'd take either Brewer or Powe in that order. Something crazy inside me still has a little belief in Finley as well.

    Sound away!

    Fans have liked Joel Przybilla. How 'bout this one. Or for an offensive-minded center, this one?
    I am a fan of the Portland Trail Blazers. Period.

    If healthy, Leon Powe was the player I wanted Portland to pursue.  Great hands around the basket and knows how to finish.  Excellent interior defender and rebounder.  An enforcer and a player that matches up well with Kendrick Perkins of OKC, should we draw them in the playoffs.  Just my thoughts.  Maybe Powe hasn't fully recovered from having the ACL done.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
