    Alex Len, C, Phoenix Suns - The former #5 pick put up solid numbers last season (8.5 PPG, 7.5 RPG), albeit on a bad team. Last season, the Knicks had started to take interest in bringing on busted prospects from other teams (Emmanuel Mudiay), and they stand to lose Kyle O'Quinn, so why not? Best fit: New York.

    Tony Parker, PG, San Antonio Spurs - Had received some unfair criticism from the media recently for his role in the Kawhi soap opera, but the reality is that as a future hall-of-famer and one of the more respected guys in the league, Parker is entitled to speak his mind. In his age-35 season coming off a quad injury, averaged 14.2 points, 6.6 assists and 3.2 rebounds per 36 minutes. Still a solid backup in the right situation. Parker has familiarity with the Hornets' new coaching staff and they had been for years thirsting for a reliable backup for Kemba. Best fit: Charlotte.

    Corey Brewer, G/F, Oklahoma City Thunder - Averaged double figures in scoring (10.1 PPG) in 18 regular season games for the Thunder after being bought out by the Lakers. In Denver (one of Brewer's many former teams), Wilson Chandler has been traded, so there will be plenty of wing minutes to be filled over there assuming they could create a roster spot by somehow removing Kenneth Faried off of their roster. Best fit: Denver.

    Vince Carter, SF, Sacramento Kings - Has completed two full decades in the NBA, and will be 42 next January. Had his moments last season in limited action...Scored 21 points in a game against the Spurs in a duel of 40-year-olds with Manu Ginobili. If Toronto is not interested in a reunion, I wouldn't mind seeing him retire and go out while he still has something left in the tank. Best fit: Toronto.

    Devin Harris, PG, Denver Nuggets - Man, it literally feels as if he's been around since the Jordan era, but he's still only 35, and actually played well after his mid-season trade to Denver by averaging 8.2 points per game. The Nuggets still need a backup point guard, so they might as well roll the dice again for 2018-19, again assuming they'll be able to find a way to rid themselves of Kenneth Faried. Best fit: Denver.

    The only player on here I would be at all interested in is Brewer. He showed he still had it last year down the stretch with OKC. He can still defend and run the floor.

    Alex Len is the new Mozgov. He is not a fit in the modern era because he can't defend at all in space, and while he is a solid offensive big he will never enough to make up for being such an extreme liability defensively.

    Everyone else you mentioned had better start getting their resume ready for Big 3 ball, because they are all cooked.

    Off season thread approaching 4,000 post.

    There is a different thread approaching 2,000 post and another one over 2,000

    Then there is the DeMarcus Cousins thread approaching 700 post.

    But yeah this board sucks because a thread wasn't started about a washed up parker going to Charlotte.

    I could’ve added a good paragraph to the weaknesses but I just don’t have the energy right now.

    It's not worth the effort.

    Not like he's a difference maker or anything.

    We just won't care if a washed up Dwyane Wade returns to the Heat then, either.

    Then let's just make the NBA five teams - Philly, Boston, and Miami in the east, and the Lakers and Warriors in the west. I'm sure that would make you extremely happy.

    He had one good stretch where he tricked a lot of people into thinking he could be something. Ever since then he hasn't done jack shit.

    Not expecting a thread to be made when/if Wade decides to continue his NBA career later this summer.
