NBA Rumors: 7 Players Who Desperate Teams Are Turning to

July 7th, 2012 by Josh Martin Leave a reply »
Deron Williams is off the market. So are Steve Nash, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, Jason Terry, Jason Kidd, Gerald Wallace, Jamal Crawford, Brandon Roy and Goran Dragic, among a long list of NBA ex-free agents.

A list that's likely to swell within the next few days, as the likes of Eric Gordon, Roy Hibbert, Nicolas Batum and Jeremy Lin come to terms with their restricted free agency.

Pure namedropping aside, the drying up of the free agent pool is quickly becoming cause for panic around The Association. Teams like the Dallas Mavericks, the Houston Rockets and the Phoenix Suns are still flush with cap space as their options for improvement continue to dwindle.

All of which means big paydays and showers of attention for mediocre youngsters, fading veterans and soon-to-be-card-carrying AARP members seeking something more than a seat on the bench...

...because desperate times like these call for desperate measures.
