Hoopsworld free agent update

Pretty much the full list of quality free agents remaining and the latest rumors on where they might head.

Full link here by Alex Raskin.

Wally Szczerbiak: He seems to be a lock to land in Denver for the veterans' minimum or the Nuggets' bi-annual exception. Either way, the deal will most likely be for one year. Much has been written about Szczerbiak's supposed decline, but he is still a premiere 3-point shooter (he finished 23rd in the NBA in 3-point percentage) and he's a playoff veteran. The Nuggets may have found an inexpensive replacement for Linas Kleiza.
David Lee: The New York Post's Marc Berman and HOOPSWORLD's Steve Kyler have each suggested that it's only a matter of time before Lee inks a one-year deal with the Knicks. We know it will be more for more money than the one-year tender but don't expect the contract to reach the eight figures Agent Mark Bartelstein was looking for.
Allen Iverson: Iverson tweeted, "If you think that I am just going away-Think again! I am getting ready for the NBA season. Waiting for the call. Charlotte, Miami, NY."

One thing that is clear is that Memphis is no longer an option.

Iverson may not have a deal in hand when the season starts, but the first team to lose a star to injury should be dialing his number. There hasn't been any confirmed activity recently concerning Iverson, but don't be shocked to see Washington interested if Randy Foye and/or Gilbert Arenas aren't 100% healthy.

Charlotte might be the best bet right now, particularly if Iverson can reduce his asking price below the full mid-level exception.
Ronald Murray: HOOPSWORLD's Steve Kyler mentioned the possibility of him coming to Miami, which makes lot of sense. Murray was a bargain for the Hawks last season and will go for well-under the mid-level exception. Murray also has the advantage of having played in a plethora of schemes and has the ability to adapt his game to any team.
