With the trade deadline and the goods and bads of those trades behind us, I want to address where some of the older, formerly well paid, free agent veterans could end up next season. There will be quite a few vets that will be free agents at the end of the season that either have no ring, or crave for that champagne shower one more time before calling it quits. Which vets are satisfied with their careers and take a contract with a "pretender" for more money, or take the vet minimum and go to a "contender" to have a chance at kissing that trophy at the end of the season? I will give my predictions on a hand full of these players and I hope you do the same. You may chose to add other players that I do not list. Here is a list of players I believe can be difference makers on the right team.
Kevin Garnett- Takes the vet min. for 1 yr and plays C for the Heat or Thunder...probably a lock to the finals for that team
Tim Duncan- Takes whatever the Spurs decide to give him....I dont see him goin anywhere...I think he plays 2 more seasons
Antwan Jamison- Takes the vet min for 1 yr from Spurs, Magic, or Thunder.....a stretch PF would be a good fit for Thunder
Marcus Camby- Takes the vet min for 1 yr from Heat, Thunder, or Lakers....good back up C
Jason Kidd- Takes the vet min for 1 yr to wherever Nash doesnt go....good possibilty he stays with the Mavs
Grant Hill- Takes the vet min. for 1 yr from the Bulls, Thunder, or Clips...would be great locker room fit for Thunder.
