Really no one worth getting... This team is going to look the same after the buyout period.

He's useless. Can't defend anything, and is woefully inefficient.

I have this weird feeling we’re gonna end up with Jabari Parker. The Winless for Wiggins prodigal son comes home.

Guys getting bought out by request might make the list a little longer. Teams wanting to save a few bucks and do a player a solid in a season with diminished fan income.

Not that it worked well last time, but did anyone pickup GR III when Sacto cut him loose a little while back?

The only buyout that's going to make a difference is Aldridge, and maybe Drummond if he goes to the Nets. The rest of those guys aren't any better than the free agents on the street.

DeMarr Carroll
Wilson Chandler
Kenneth Faried
Noah Vonleh
Shabazz Napier

Wouldn’t mind bringing in Vonleh for a look-see. Had some good run with the Knicks a couple years back and he’s still not old. Are there 10 day contracts this year?

Both Dewayne Dedmond and Thon Maker are on the street if teams want a Center.

I'm curious why the Magic held on to Terrence Ross. He doesn't really help their tanking cause and they have him on the hook for 3 more years, I think.

Dedmond is surprising. Did he just fall off of a cliff?
They say an analytics man doesn't have a heart, but I ran the numbers and nothing can be further from the truth - Sam Hinkie probably

Meyers Leonard will be paying people to let him play, he jumped off his own cliff.

I have no idea at all how Terrence Ross was not traded. He does not fit the Magic at all what so ever! If he gets bought out we need to be all over him!

Terrence Ross would be my absolute number 1 target.
