Big men for cheap

Here is a list of Players I think could be suitable for the nuggets next year.  They are all realistic to acquire via trade or free agency and cheap.  Tell me what you think and add any players i missed out. Could very well be the next Arron Afflalo deal

Player Position Age Ht Wt Team ppg rpg 2010/11 salary
Taj Gibson PF 24 6 ft 9 225 CHI 9 7.5 $1,117,680
Earl Barron C 28 7 ft 250 NYK 11.7 11 FA
Marreese speights PF 22 6 ft 10 250 PHI 8.6 4.1 $1,773,960
Luis Amunsden PF 27 6 ft 9 225 PHX 4.7 4.4 FA
Spencer Hawes C 22 7 ft 1 245 SAC 10 6.1 $2,974,320
Jason Thompson C/F 23 6 ft 11 250 SAC 12.5 8.5 $2,178,000
DeAndre Jordan C/F 21 6 ft 11 250 LAC 4.8 5 $854,389
James Singleton PF 28 6 ft 8 230 WAS 6.1 6.9 FA
Amir Johnson PF 23 6 ft 9 210 TOR 4.8 6.2 FA
Aaron Gray C 25 7 ft 270 NOH 3.8 3.6 FA
Hakim Warrick PF 27 6 ft 9 220 CHI 8.7 3.6 FA

Now obviously some of these players would be harder to obtain than others (Thompson, Hawes, Jordan etc.) but those two teams (kings and clippers) have high picks in the draft and in a draft high in quality bigs may be willing to make a trade or even trade their draft picks?

Other teams may improve big men via free agency (bulls, heat, clippers) and will be looking for cap space or better supporting cast.  This could mean the nuggets could get the likes of Gibson and jordan cheap.

 Free agents. One thing they will be looking for is decent playing time especially on a contending team so Denver should be a good option. they should get plenty of minutes allowing Kmart to rest and being legitimate rebounders ahead of birdman or petro

Not knowing too much about the rest but I do know they are mainly young skilled and cheap just the way Stan likes them.
