While Brewer and Korver help fill the void after the trade of Kirk Hinrich -- Brewer is an athletic player known for his defense, while Korver is one of the top three-point shooters in the league -- the Bulls might not be done acquiring shooting-guard candidates. They still have room under the salary cap, and NBA sources said the Bulls have had discussions with representatives for Josh Howard, Shannon Brown, Rasual Butler and even Tracy McGrady.

He averaged 11.2 points the prior season for the New Orleans Hornets. Butler made $3.9 million last season. ESPN.com

The Wizards likely won't sign anyone right away, but on the first day of the free agent negotiating period, they reached out to several free agents to express interest in their services. According to multiple league sources, they have already contacted the representatives for Mike Miller, Josh Howard, Josh Childress, Travis Outlaw, Rasual Butler and Ryan Gomes, hoping to address their need for a veteran wing player. As it stands, Al Thornton and to a lesser extent, Nick Young, are the only small forwards on the roster. Yi Jianlian could possibly play on the wing, but is probably better suited at power forward.
