Ranking the best free agents in the NBA, including some who could fit in Utah

1. LeBron James, small forward, unrestricted Next List » 27 of 27 « Prev
The Heat fell short on their quest for a third straight title, but James is still one of the best two players in the world. James can do just about anything on the floor at an elite level. In 2013-14, James averaged 27.1 points on 56.7 percent shooting from the floor, 6.9 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.6 steals in nearly 38 minutes a game.

I would love to see Marcin Gortat in a Jazz uniform.

What no Jimmer? ha ha. He's not in the top 27 but I think he could be a valuable asset to a team that needs a shooter to spread the floor.

I would love to see Jimmer with the Jazz and, yes, he would be an asset shooter.

On getting LeBron James:

ESPN reported that LeBron wants a max contract and Utah is one of seven teams with the money to give it to him.

"So you're telling me there's a chance?"

I think Jimmer will have a choice between Europe and the NBA. In Europe he's likely to make more money, play more minutes, and be more appreciated than the NBA. He can still play a role on a team like Chicago and maybe win some games for the Bulls. Don't expect major minutes however. It would be interesting to see which way he goes.

There are a lot of good players on this list. I would not want the fellow that did the ranking to buy cows, hogs or horses for me. As for that basketball players either.

Jazz need to sign Hayward, add a veteran big that can play and start practice.

Centerville, UT

Jimmer's not going back to Chicago, he saw what that was about and it wasn't minutes. He needs to find a team that will give him minutes.
