Kosta Koufos

Status:Unrestricted Free Agent

2015 Team: Memphis Grizzlies

Koufos is definitely not the most flashy backup center in the league, but his hard work is often overlooked because of the fact that he operates in the shadow of Marc Gasol. If the Mavs do indeed decide to offer Gasol this summer, Koufos could become more of a possibility but even if they don’t, he is a very effective seven-footer who gets the job done. I’m not sure what the market would be for him or how much he would want, but he could be a game changer off the bench for the Mavs by backing up Tyson Chandler or DeAndre Jordan.
