Power Forward free agents Raptors may look at

1 of 6

The Toronto Raptors need a power forward to shore up the team’s fragile frontcourt. Here’s a slideshow of quality free agents.

This is a list of power forwards who will be on the free-agent market in the 2016 off-season.

Dirk Nowitzki and Tim Duncan are inexorably linked with Dallas and San Antonio, respectively. They are lifers, so I’m not going to waste your time on speculation about them switching teams. I’ve lumped some more candidates in a slide entitled “Don’t bother, Masai”. Their negatives (cost, age, slipping performance) render them out of bounds. That leaves several proven performers the Toronto Raptors need to take a run at signing.


PO: Player Option

RFA: Restricted Free Agent

UFA: Unrestricted Free Agent

I suggest a visit to Larry Coon’s invaluable Collective Bargaining Agreement site  for detailed definitions of these terms.

Let’s count down the candidates, from least- to most-desirable.
