Free Agent 2s and 3s

When Kevin Pelton of Basketball Prospectus wasn't busy interviewing with SnP during the past few days, he was preparing an objective and subjective review of the free agents available this summer.

Of particular interest to Wolves fans will be fillers of the perceived holes the team has on the perimeter. Here is a summary of what he sees with free agent shooting guards and small forwards who might be of interest to the Wolves:

Shooting Guards

  • Von Wafer Mini Ben Gordon who needs to prove that last season wasn't a fluke
  • Rodney Carney Good athlete, but the only thing he can produce is points
  • Morris Almond It didn't click for him in Utah, and it remains to be seen if it happens somewhere else

Small Forwards

  • Marvin Williams Developed a better 3-ball last season, but low possession usage doesn't bode well
  • Josh Childress Better than remembered, young enough, "worse players have gotten big money"
  • Linas Kleiza Will have a long NBA career, and could end up as a free agent bargain somewhere
  • Matt Barnes Needs to become a better 3-point shooter

Most of the other players are either below replacement level (Cartier Martin?) or out of the Wolves league (Lamar Odom).
