PBT Extra Free Agency Preview: Plenty of potential, plenty of risk in class of centers


One could argue that the center position is the deepest (or, at least second deepest) position in the 2016 free agent class.

But these are not lock guys that are available; there is a lot of risk and reward here. Not with Andre Drummond at center, but he’s not leaving Detroit.

But there is with Hassan Whiteside, a guy who has never earned $1 million a season and is about to make $22 million a year. There’s always a risk when a guy who scrapped to get paid finally gets the big check. With Pau Gasol there is the risk of age, with Joakim Noahwho is destined for the Knicks — it is age and health.

But the biggest gamble of all may be Dwight Howard.

I break it all down in this latest PBT Extra, including a suggestion for Howard.
