Veteran players to become black-balled out the NBA?

What veteran players in the NBA do you see being black-balled out of the league, due to having problems with teammates/coaches & off the court issues?

If T.J. Ford does not sign back with the Pacers which I doubt they will want him back, will another team take him on their roster as a starting PG?

IMO Ford is still a starting PG who is capable of making plays. His career has not panned out like everyone thought it would after coming back from the career threating injury. Since he has came back he has bounced around a few times, finally to end up in Indy where I thought he would fit in greatly. From the looks of Indy acquiring Darren Collison , Ford's days are numbered as a Pacer.

Having a bad Attitude and

Having a bad Attitude and being uncoachable the 2 main reasons why alot of guys dont get sign even though they might still have something left in the tank...Sprewell left too early,he had something to offer..Iverson would make a great 6th man at this stage of his career for teams like the Bulls and Hornets...But he refuse to come off the bench...

Guys like Kurt Thomas,Mutumbo,Ratliffe and Juwan Howard are positive vets that can be good voices to have in the lockerroom...

Ford will be signed by someone..he needs to go to a team that plays up tempo...

it depends on how much money

it depends on how much money he wants because, the Suns and the Knicks could use someone of his caliber off the bench.

Ford is a quality starter in

Ford is a quality starter in this league...Injuries slowed him down from becoming elite...

Yeah the Knicks would be good...Hornets can use him as a backup...

Hornets are set having Jack

Hornets are set having Jack as a back-up. I could see ford being a good fit in Phoenix if Steve Nash leaves. The Warriors would be a good fit too.

I could see Ford playing as a high minute reserve in GS allowing Curry to go off ball more and concentrate on scoring the way he likes. Ford's lack of a 3 ball wouldn't be nearly as much of a detriment having the likes of Curry, Williams, Dorrell, and possibly even Ekpe at some point to kick to. Would be a very nice compliment to Curry, Monta, and Williams(if still there).

Id love to see TJ Ford in a GSW uniform. Mark Price is the shooting coach and it has been paying dividends for guys like Ellis and D. Wright. Jeremy Lin and Acie Law are not the answer as the backup for Steph Curry at the point. And it'd be great if Ellis got more rest...

speaking of craig hodges,

speaking of craig hodges, here's a little trivia for you guys, he is the only person to ever be invited to compete in the NBA three point contest despite not being in the nba at the time. He was the defending champ and went unsigned so the nba invited him back the following year to defend his title even though he hadnt played a minute in the league that season.
