Main event: NBA bargain bin free agents

This is a list Sam Presti will monitor, but he probably will focus more on restricted free agents by making qualifying offers.

Some players on this list will get decent money. Others could be disappointed.

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

24 SF Trevor Ariza (8.9 ppg, 4.3 reb.)

The Lakers have made it priority No. 1 to re-sign him.

30 PF Lamar Odom (11.3 ppg, 8.2 reb.)

Can the Lakers find enough money for Odom and Ariza?

31 PF Chris Andersen (6.4 ppg, 6.2 reb).

High energy player greatly improved his stock last season

26 C Anderson Varejao (8.6 ppg, 7.2 reb.)

Cavs want to re-sign him, but he might receive sizeable offer

29 SF Matt Barnes (10.2 ppg, 5.6 reb.)

Role player who could be valuable scorer off the bench

28 SF Marquis Daniels (13.6 ppg, 4.6 reb.).

Solid player might draw attention from several teams

27 PF Chris Wilcox (7.2 ppg, 4.5 reb.)

Former Thunder player should get a few decent offers

24 PF Brandon Bass (8.5 ppg, 4.5 reb.)

Dallas wants to re-sign him. Will some team overpay to get him?

31 SG Eddie House (8.5 ppg, 1.1 apg)

Uncertain if Celtics can re-sign one-dimensional shooting threat

32 SG Wally Szczerbiak (7.0 ppg, 1.1 apg)

Picked a bad time to have a career-worst season

23 SG Gerald Green (5.2 ppg, 1.4 reb.)

Some team could end up getting a bargain if the price is right

26 SG Dahntay Jones (5.4 ppg, 2.1 reb.)

A few teams already expressing interest in Nuggets guard

26 PF Shelden Williams (4.1 ppg, 3.4 reb.)

Uncertain future. No. 5 pick in '06 has been huge disappointment
