Surveying FA Landscape at PG



We clearly need to bolster the back court with a veteran type guy that can play meaningful minutes next season. Who should it be? I've posted all the available PGs in the 2012 FA class and added some of my thoughts next to the unrestricted ones. Vote for yours after the jump and rip me and everyone else in the comments!!!

The following is taken from http://www.hoopsworld.com/2012-nba-free-agents

Looking at PG in the upcoming FA market, this is what we have to choose from. My personal choice is Raymond Felton. He is 28 yo, has the experience we need, and can be had at a good price.

I realize, he is not the sexy pick, but my point was to generate a discussion about real options available to GSW. Feel free to fantasize in the comments if that's your thing. Felton does turn the ball over more than what I would like to see, but I think he is a solid value for what is available in our price range. I also think Goran Dragic would be a solid pick up. Of course, perhaps GSW pulls off a sign and trade for a bigger impact player, but that is pie in the sky til at least draft day. And yes, I know we need to pick up a big too and its possible they'll use the MLE on a big instead, but that's for another Fanshot.
