Rapture Nation, while the free agent season hasn’t officially begun yet, the jockeying for position is well underway. Taking as my lead-in a list of the Top Ten free agents this summer, I’m going to list four UFAs, and ask you to pick one. I’m not offering Kyle Lowry as an option; we all want him back. Nor am I adding Dirk Nowitzki, as I don’t think there’s a snowball’s chance in Hell he’ll leave Dallas. I’m looking at the best of those who may be interested in a competitive and youthful Toronto Raptors team.

Finally, let’s ignore money/salary cap issues with this poll, and just dream a little. If you want to make a case for your choice, please add your views in the Comments.

Which Unrestricted Free Agent [UFA] should the Raps "wine & dine" most aggressively?

  • Luol Deng (do-it-all swingman has lots left in tank, & wants to win) (53%, 149 Votes)
  • Marcin Gortat (flourished in Washington as starter - was it just a "contract year"? (19%, 52 Votes)
  • Pau Gasol (veteran centre with glittering career would like to add 1 more title) (15%, 42 Votes)
  • Lance Stephenson (talented swingman with occasional brain cramps - worth the risk?) (13%, 38 Votes)

Total Voters: 281
