Stefanski said the team's own free agents, power forward Anthony Tolliver and small forward James Ennis, are on their list. "We like both players," Stefanski said. "I was with James in Memphis. Anthony Tolliver -- the people in Detroit, teammates and everybody -- loves the guy, so they're still in play. It's all going to depend what kind of money is out there and the demand for both those players. More I'd say the ball's in their court than ours."
