01:11 PM ET 11.29 | Derek Fisher is back in the NBA, and soon, he may even be back in a team's starting lineup. The five-time NBA champion signed with the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night, and coach Rick Carlisle is already talking about elevating him to the starting group in place of the struggling Darren Collison. "I really like Darren Collison as a player, and I like him even better as a person. But putting him in a position to be the starter on this team right now isn't fair to him," Carlisle said. "With Derek coming in, it's a great opportunity for Darren to learn from one of the greatest winners in the history of the game."

Nah! DWill was the only one and maybe JLin, Asik, and JKidd.

Lol Jlin is noting, Asik is decent but again not an all star, Jkidd is old and just Kidd.

How much they got to spend? Check out the list at hoopsworld, who do you think would be a good fit for the Spurs?


They should get a replacement for Duncan right? or the PF position.

Depending on what Manu and Jax command anywhere between 15 million to 25 million...which is enough to get Josh Smith or Al Jefferson, because they are set at the Guards,Wings and Bench...they just need a big to compliment Duncan
