2011 Free Agents that BC and Stefanski may love that you hate

A fanpost I wrote a couple of days ago about Allen Iverson and the subsequent comment section got me thinking about a topic that every armchair general manager/ Raptors fan is thinking of: Free Agents that BC and Ed Stefanski may be interested in for personal/stylistic reasons that we as fans would completely disagree with. To be clear, this is purely speculation. Given the lockout situation, we won't be hearing about any free agency rumours until that problem is resolved anyways.

Past examples of this may include Jason Kapono, Hedo Turkoglu, Fred Jones and Linas Kleiza.

Here are some guys I can think of in no particular order:

1) Allen Iverson

I mentioned this in my other fanpost in more detail, but given Ed Stefanski's history with Iverson while with the 76ers and his propensity for bringing in veterans, I can see the Raptors making a run for Iverson. Though the financial risk would likely be minimal, the bigger risk is Iverson's impact on our youngsters through team chemistry and ball movement.

2) Troy Murphy

Big man who shoots 3s. Doesn't play much D, though he will grab a rebound. The thought of Murphy playing alongside Andre Bargnani scares the living daylights out of me.

 3) Mike Dunleavy Jr.

Younger Hedo Turkoglu. Can handle the ball some and an excellent shooter. Like Hedo, a poor defender but that wouldn't be enough to deter BC.
