Since Matt Barnes is gone and these guys don't have any offers I think we should go after 1 of these 3 between Jarvis Hayes, Trenton Hassell and Bobby Simmons. This is just a quick write up to see what you guys think of these guys. I chose to do these guys cause I feel like there the most likley to come here
Trenton Hassell: He plays with all his heart every single night and is a defensive role player who can guard 3 positions. His problem is that he is awful on offense, absolutely awful. I think he'd just come in and provide some leadership and play defense. He is a pure hustle guy and nothing more but at this point I'd rather take that than nothing. He rarely turns the ball over but almost never gets to the line. He always is matched against the other teams best player and does a sound job for the most part. Won't block shots or get steals but will play his man well. He's 6'5 and 230 lbs and is 31 so only a 1 year deal would be the best case contract wise.
Jarvis Hayes: A decent role player, not starter material at all but can shoot well. He plays on the perimeter a lot and doesn't drive too much. He is a solid defender. For the stat guys he had a better TS than Melo,Gay,Peja and Josh Howard. He's not a good passer at all and his assists to TO's is not very good. He's 6'7 220 and 28 years old so he's not too old and and has good size. He is good at guarding strong SF's but struggles against quick guards. He's basically your typical average role player
Bobby Simmons: The one time MIP was hurt a lot so he never lived up to his potential but is a solid role player. He's got a good jumper and can hit 3's well and has a good mid range game. He's a good athlete and a solid defender. Not much of a rebounder or passer though. Off the bench he could probably just run the floor and hit jumpers and play solid defense. Again nothing great but these are some of the 3 best SF's left.
Some other notable free agents: Acie Law, Michael Finley, Flip Murray, Tim Thomas, Joey Graham, Rasual Butler, Jerry Stackhouse, Kurt Thomas, Earl Barron, Eddie House, Adonal Foyle (!), Rodney Carney, Mustafa Shakur (I like his name..), Ime Udoka, Richard Jefferson, Josh Howard
So there are still some guys left. I personally like the idea of Udoka who is a pure defender and doesn't require lots of minutes and can hit 3's and Earl Barron who was good for the Knicks averaging a double double in limited time.
Random: Bobby Simmons looks like Greg Monroe
