From Davis to Artest, what free agents are worth


From Davis to Artest, what free agents are worth
The annual free-agent madness is upon us. Eight- and nine-figure sums are being casually bandied about, rumors arise and quickly sink, commitments are made, and mistakes are confessed. The destinies of franchises are up for sale.

It's the perfect time to investigate the possible futures as well as the ultimate value of the most prominent unrestricted free agents.

NBA offseason

Matt Barnes

He can score in bunches, drop treys, and run all day. While it's true that Barnes is a mistake-player (especially on defense), he'd still find a perfect niche coming off the bench for Mike D'Antoni's newly reconstituted Knicks.

Ricky Davis

Should Barnes vacate the premises, the Warriors could certainly use Davis's shoot-first-and-ask-no-questions approach.

Carlos Arroyo

Arroyo requires too much ball-time to be a real player on a real team. Any offer should not be refused.

Keyon Dooling

Somewhat wild and erratic, Dooling remains a shot-happy combo-guard. Just the kind of guy Nellie loves to have at the end of his bench.

And then there's Ron Artest, who said that not opting out of Sacramento was a big "mistake," according to ESPN.com

This statement either means that Artest's brain-power is of the lowest wattage possible, or he's a genius since he's guaranteed himself a nice fall-back paycheck while at the same time forcing the Kings to trade him. Don't be surprised if he lands with the Lakers.

It should also be noted that the first option is the most probable given Artest's last-minute plea to be included on the USA Olympic basketball squad. After bragging on his skills, Artest added "my character speaks for itself," according to ESPN.com.

Exactly.
