Ryan DeGama, CelticsHub: Richard Jefferson. On a team with good ball movement, one that can get him the ball in his spots, Jefferson can still make shots (he hit 47 percent from the field and 44 percent on 3s last season). But he's on a four-year productivity slide, so make it a one-year deal. Graydon Gordian, 48 Minutes of Hell: Richard Jefferson. Jefferson has underachieved during his time in San Antonio, but he still has a lot to offer. If the Spurs let him go, any team in need of a strong wing who consistently attacks the rim and can help on the boards should look to sign him. Jared Wade, 8 Points, 9 Seconds: Richard Jefferson. Gregg Popovich has humbled RJ back into knowing he is nothing more than a role player. His game still disappoints, given the promise young Jefferson showed next to Jason Kidd in New Jersey, but there aren't many holes in his game. He will not turn the tide of a franchise, but he could be a nice finishing piece for a title contender. Jovan Buha, ClipperBlog: Richard Jefferson. If the amnesty clause was based purely on skill, Jefferson would not be a candidate. While his across-the-board production has dropped off significantly in San Antonio (including his once-respectable playmaking skills), Jefferson still shot 44 percent from beyond the arc last season and posted a ridiculous 61.2 true shooting percentage. Nick Friedell, ESPN Chicago: Richard Jefferson. He can still shoot and made almost half his shots from the field last season. He'll find a way to be a contributor on a winning team in 2011-12.
