Mannix: Top 20 Free Agents

So, if we ever get to have an offseason free agency period this year, there will be a so-so crop of guys available.  Of course we can't afford most of them and expect to maintain cap flexibility for next summer, but it doesn't hurt to kick the tires a bit. It also helps to see how other people value our own free agents.  

For example, Chris Mannix rates Glen Davis (8) well ahead of Jeff Green (13).  Other notable guys that C's fans have had their eyes on include DeAndre Jordan at 7 and J.R. Smith at 9.  Here's the link to the full list.

My quick take on those two is that Jordan is a restricted FA and so the Clips will probably match anything we'd have to offer (like the MLE) and Smith is just a bit too crazy to sign up big dollars to when we are trying to save for next year.

What might interest me more are the leftovers on the list that didn't crack the top 20.  They might be willing to take smaller or shorter term deals.  Jeff Foster anyone?

BEST OF THE REST: Carl Landry, Yao Ming, Kenyon Martin, Rodney Stuckey, Andrei Kirilenko, Marcus Thornton, Kris Humphries, Mario Chalmers, DeShawn Stevenson, Nick Young, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Greg Oden, Jonas Jerebko, Jeff Foster, Kwame Brown, Marco Belinelli, Tracy McGrady, Earl Clark, Mike Dunleavy.
