NBA Off Season Task: Stay or Go? Central Division Teams

Chicago Bulls

The Bulls actually have their core group of players signed, so there’s no one to look at for them unless you really want to talk about Brian Scalabrine, John Lucas, or Mike James.

Cleveland Cavaliers

Definitely some guys who could leave for greener pastures on this team.

Antawn Jamison  I would say the Cavs need to keep this guy for his veteran leadership and what he can do, but is there any way he’s sticking around this type of rebuilding team?

Daniel Gibson  He has a team option, and I would say that he ends up staying here unless more money comes from another team. But I don’t think there’s much demand out there for Gibson.

Detroit Pistons

It might take some pull for the Pistons to get these guys to come back.

Jason Maxiell  He has a player option for 5 million and I would think he just takes that.

Greg Monroe   Team option that is right around 3 million would be what he’s worth.

Indiana Pacers

There’s two main guys that the Pacers have to bring back in whatever way they can.

George Hill There’s a qualifying offer of around 3 million that the Pacers will probably have to bump up, but I think Hill is worth the 5-6 million range.  If he can perform at the level he did.

Roy Hibbert  Get the sack of money and pay Hibbert.  How many true centers are there left in the game?  Hibbert is a great person for the team and the city of Indianapolis.  Isn’t that what you want in a player?  Sure it’s going to take a little bit more, but I think he’s worth the price, so the Pacers have to get this done.

Milwaukee Bucks

I say the guys that have no contracts, Kwame Brown, Carlos Delfino, and Darrington Hobson, have to say good bye to the fair city of Milwaukee.  The Bucks will just have to go free agent and draft routes to fill out this team.
