Sam Presti won't actively pursue players on this list because the price would be too high, and he probably would have to commit several years. These players should command sizeable contracts, but in a tough economy, it's uncertain how much money teams will are willing to spend.


Age, Pos., Player (2008-09 stats)

31 PG Mike Bibby (14.9 ppg, 5.0 apg)

Could re-sign with the Hawks but they drafted Teague

31 SF Shawn Marion (12.9 ppg, 8.5 reb.)

Might contemplate signing for less to play for title contender

32 PG Stephon Marbury (incomplete)

Wants to return to Celtics. Won't command big dollars

28 PF Drew Gooden (11.9 ppg, 7.1 reb.)

Solid player would be valuable asset on a playoff team

31 PF Jermaine O'Neal (13.3 ppg, 6.4 reb.)

Uncertain future but could provide solid production

30 C Mehmet Okur (17.0 ppg, 7.7 reb.)

Expected to re-sign with Utah but should get some offers
