Chase Budinger ® - 11.8 pts - 3.5 rebs - possible

Byron Mullens ® - 12.5 pts - 7.8 rebs - possible 20/10 guy in the future

Centers:

Andrew Bynum - 18.7 pts - 11.8 rebs - will cost MAX

Al Jefferson - 17.7 pts - 9.4 rebs - wll cost MAX

Dwight Howard - 16.3 pts - 11.9 rebs - will cost MAX

J.J. Hickson - 13.1 pts - 10.4 rebs - will cost a lot of $$$, will he come home to NC roots?

Chris Kaman - 12.0 pts - 6.1 rebs - probably will go to a winning team

Samuel Dalembert - 7.0 pts - 5.8 rebs - a Vet that is exactlly what we hope Biz turns into- mentoir?

Jason Maxiell - 6.8 pts - 5.6 rebs - big body that will play defense and rebound

Andris Biedrins - 0.5 pts - 3.0 rebs - had a good year about 3 years ago

Nikola Pekovic ® - 16.0 pts - 9.0 rebs - will cost a lot to make it happen $$$

Tiago Splitter ® - 10.4 pts - 5.8 rebs - probably will stay with Spurs

Dejuan Blair ® - 5.4 pts - 3.9 rebs - out of rotation looking for minutes

Timofey Mozgov ® - 2.9 pts - 2.7 rebs - out of rotation looking for minutes

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

bP's list of possibles:

Paul Millsap - will have to throw MAX $$ and out bid everyone

Samuel Dalembert - will have to make attractive offer that most teams won't give him

Antawn Jamison - dangle the homecoming for him again

Nikola Pekovic ® - offer MAX deal and a city that will love you forever

Byron Mullens ® - bring back and make focal point of offense

Dejuan Blair ® - offer a starting spot and decent $$

Timofey Mozgov ® - offer a ton of minutes backing up Biz

bP's probable outcome:

we will throw out a MAX contract to Pekovic, Bynum, Jefferson, Howard, Smith, West and Millsap but none stick.

We end up resigning Mullens and overpay for Blair and Dalembert.. sorry..

LOL you think that Cho will throw a max contract to Pekovich, West, and Milsap????????????????????????

WHAT?!?!?

I can almost understand Pekovich, but a max contract to David West and Paul Millsap... LOL

I don't mean to sound rude here, but honestly that is extremely laughable.

I honestly think they could get Bynum believe it or not. He doesn't give a poo about anything but money. Now if Houston is willing to give him the max that's another story, but if nobody else is willing to risk it with his knees and the Bobcats will.....Also, you have to ask yourself do you want to commit the max to Bynum....

I like Bynum and I miss his smoothness on offense so much, but I would not even consider giving him a max contract. Maybe he gets healthy, and maybe he doesn't. Judging by his history -- he won't ever be fully healthy and something like that could cripple your franchise financially. Is Andrew Bynum worth the max if he is healthy every year? No doubt (best offensive big in the NBA when healthy). It just doesn't look like he will ever be healthy.

I agree with this completely. Was a huge Bynum fan when he was in L.A., and still want to see the kid do well. Doesn't help that he just literally doesn't give a poo about anything but getting paid and partying though....

I think any team going after Pekovic will have to include an poison pill of some sort to make it happen. It's going to take a lot of money too. Probably around 11-14 million a season plus the poison pill year, which might surprise some on here. Not sure if he's worth that kind of money though.

I would give JJ Hickson a Max deal.

Byron Mullens could become a 20/10 guy if he took 30 shots a game, and he almost does already. 7 of those boards would be offensive rebounds off his own threes.

I would probably give Mullens a max deal as well.

I wouldn't. He could be a good bench player thoe. But I'm not maxing a bench player.
