A key contributor to the Pistons' run of six straight Eastern finals appearances, the 31-year-old will be an intriguing midlevel option for a number of contenders, including the Heat—if the Pistons don't re-sign him.
Caron Butler, F, Mavs
Dallas would like to bring back the 31-year-old small forward, who remained an inspirational team member while trying in vain to return from a midseason knee injury. But the Heat may be interested in bringing him back to Miami.
Jamal Crawford, G, Hawks
The 31-year-old can start or come off the bench as a playmaker or scorer, which makes him an excellent finishing piece for a contending team like the Lakers or (yes, them again) the Heat.
Thaddeus Young, F, 76ers
A Sixth Man of the Year candidate last season, Young is a restricted free agent, and the Sixers aren't likely to let him get away.
Shane Battier, F, Grizzlies
This plug-and-play 32-year-old will improve the chemistry of any team, young (Kings) or old (Hawks).
Nenê, C, Nuggets
