    I don't think Lin is gonna be consistent.
    I agree and that is why I put him quite low on the list.

    Something to keep in mind is that Kirilenko was always more effective as a small-ball 4 than as a 3. A bit like James Johnson that way. Although he brings a lot to the table defensively, he and DeRozan wouldn't mesh well on the offensive end at all.

    Good, so, We agree he's probably not going anywhere.

    The rest of your list. I think I agree with the rankings.

    Edit:Some guys I beleive you forgot or outside the top 10 are...

    D.J. Augustin, Landry Fields, Rudy Fernandez, Beasley,Alonzo Gee, Courtney Lee,Brandon Rush,george Hill, maureese Speights

    Brandon Rush, I doubt we go after. I don't think Speights. Courtney Lee, i'm not sure about either.

    the rest are in the mix

    especially the first three.

    Is Rudy unrestricted or restricted? I would be interested in him.

    Goran Dragic is an unrestricted free agent, and while the Rockets are intensely interested in bringing him back, Dragic is likely to get significant offers from Toronto, Portland, and perhaps even Dallas. He showed he can be a very good starting point guard, and plenty of teams around the league need one and took note of his play.

    May have been answered somewhere in this thread already, but when is it that we can make offers to players (i.e. - the false rumour of Kirilenko to Nets)? Can a team start to talk to unrestricted free agents once they are out of the playoffs? How about overseas, can they be signed before July 1st?

    Talk can begin on July 1st.

    Formal offers and signings not until July 11th.

    So the "false" Kirilenko verbal agreement with the Nets would fall under illegal contact? If so, would that be why it was "undone" in the last few days?

    Surprised he didn't make the list of honorable mentions then... has he fallen that out of favor in this league?

    He's an injured back up two for the nuggets. So, i'd say yes.

    I'm not even sure what happened with dallas. Seemed like they we're pleased to acquire him, then shipped him out immediately.

    I would be surprised if the Raptors don't go hard after Lin this off-season. I haven't read anything indicating that Lin is 100% committed to NY going forward. He'd be an excellent fit as a back-up to Jose, and would allow Bayless to move to the 2.

    He's restricted. So, it does not matter if he's commited 100%.

    No thanks to Lin. He's a one hit wonder and bayless has much better upside than him as a 1

    Lin is a definite flash in the pan.

    What would be your big board if these "Top 10 Restricted Free Agents" were Raptor's choices and where does Kirilenko fit? I based mine on what I think the current Raptor's roster needs:

    1. Batum
    2. Gordon
    3. Mayo
    4. Kirilenko
    5. Hill
    6. Hibbert
    7. Lee
    8. Lopez
    9. Lin
    10. McGee
    11. Anderson

    I know their is like no love for Michael Beasley on this forum and BryCo would never go for him. IMO In the right situation he could blow up. It's a pipe dream but, I hope it's in Toronto.

    injuries. personally i wouldn't touch gordon. we are first and foremost looking for reliability and he has shown it in his unreliability. if we toss 5 years at gordon, how much do we actually get to see him play. all the talent in the world but at his age already every season he has played in less and less games year on end.

    so say we sign him, we can write him in to play 50 games next year? what about the 30 games he doesn't play? or we can write him in for 82 games and then get disappointed?

    talent wise he would be just below batum for me but in such a pivotal year i don't want any part of his next contract. i hope he can get it together for someone but not the raptors.
