Free-agent center Erick Dampier(notes) is finalizing a list of teams he’ll meet with in the near future, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.This presents a dilemma. On the one hand, there's the opportunity to add a fifth center to the roster, though this one's 35 years old and possibly as good as Zaza Pachulia. On the other hand, every dollar over $1,423,195 million spent on Dampier this season will cost double or necessitate a salary dump before the final day of the regular season.
Dampier’s list is expected to be topped by the Miami Heat and Houston Rockets, as well as a potential sleeper: the Atlanta Hawks. Dampier still hasn’t decided how many teams he wants to meet with, but there are multiple suitors for him.
