So we need outside shooting to spread the floor. If we land Mo Williams, that would help us a little. Just looking at shooters that are un-restricted free agents with good a 3 point %, we have some options:
OJ Mayo – 37.5% career 3-pointers. Plays good perimeter defense too.
Ersan Illyasova – shot 45% from 3 last year. And he rebounds well.
Steve Novak – shot 47% from 3 last year, but may be a bit one dimensional.
Danny Green – shot 43% from 3 last year. Could be a solid pick-up if the price is right.
Shannon Brown – 36% from 3 last year.
Nick Young – 37% career shooting for 3’s.
Willie Green – 44% from 3 land last year, but a bit inconsistent overall.
Again, these guys are all un-restricted so there isn’t a reason we couldn’t go after any of them. Who do you like? Like many of you I like Illyasova, but I also like Mayo a lot, however we’re starting to get overloaded at the guard position. He would bring some good perimeter toughness though. Anyone not on the list you like? There are a couple more guys that are restricted that I would add to the list. We must get somebody to spread the floor.
Of course signing one of these guys could put us over the cap if Mo ends up coming. We may need to work a trade to facilitate a signing.
