Three players who are good bargains.
Keyon Dooling, New Jersey Nets
An explosive guard with two years remaining on his contract after this season at just $7.4 million. He'd be a great fit on expectant playoff teams as a versatile reserve. Backing up San Antonio point guard Tony Parker, for example, or Denver's Chauncey Billups would give a team just one more threat playoff opponents would have to take into account.
Charlie Villanueva, Milwaukee Bucks
A near 16-point scorer is playing for a dirt cheap $3.4 million this season. But he's in store to get closer to his worth in free agency this summer, which might make teams leery of trading for him. A team such as Dallas, however, with deep pockets owner Mark Cuban could take a chance in an attempt to beef up it frontcourt for the postseason.
Joakim Noah, Chicago Bulls
He's making just $2.2 million in the second year of his rookie contract and has seen his immature act wear thin on Bulls fans and front office executives. It wouldn't come as a shock to see teams such as Detroit and San Antonio, two franchises continuously looking to get younger, make a run at Noah.
