Craig Smith resigns

Craig Smith is off the market, having resigned with Minnesota. The Lakers were never linked to him in any reports I saw, and he's a restricted free agent, so I didn't really think anything was going to happen, but from the little I know of him, he might've been a nice fit.

The updated free agent target list:

  • Ronny Turiaf -- four years, $17 million, front-loaded, Golden State (Lakers can match, but shouldn't)
  • James Posey -- Hornets, four years, $25 million
  • DJ Mbenga -- waiting for the phone to ring, I'm sure
  • Corey Maggette -- five years, $50 million, Golden State
  • Sun Yue -- Kupchak wants to bring him over, but no word yet on a deal
  • Kurt Thomas -- Spurs are his first choice? Lakers?
  • Brent Barry -- two years, $3.9 million, Houston
  • Craig Smith -- two-year deal to return to Minnesota
  • Carl Landry -- qualifying offer extended by Houston
  • Walter Herrmann -- big European money on the table?
  • Randolph Morris -- Atlanta?
  • Kwame Brown -- Bucks, Heat, Hawks apparently interested
  • Eduardo Najera -- undisclosed deal with the Nets
  • Juwan Howard -- ?
  • Robert Horry -- not retiring; Spurs or Rockets?
  • Francisco Elson -- not going back to Seattle; Miami?
  • Theo Ratliff -- back to Detroit?
  • Adonal Foyle -- back to Orlando?
  • Quinton Ross -- with Brand gone, maybe the Clippers bring him back, but everyone is interested, including Phoenix, Orlando, New Jersey?
  • Bostjan Nachbar -- Detroit? With the Nets adding Najera and Jarvis Hayes, does that mean no room for Nachbar?
  • Dorell Wright -- qualifying offer from Miami
  • Sasha Vujacic -- qualifying offer from the Lakers
  • Patrick O'Bryant -- two years, $3 million, Celtics
  • David Harrison -- Denver?
  • Chris Andersen -- probably not Boston after signing O'Bryant; Cleveland? back to the Nuggets?
  • Primoz Brezec -- Seattle, Chicago, Miami?
  • Jorge Garbajosa
