NBA veterans left out in the cold
By Marc Stein
Monday is media day for 23 teams in the NBA, but there are lots of familiar names who will miss out on the festivities.
ESPN.com has compiled a handy list if you're curious: 32 players who ended last season on an NBA roster and have yet to find a new team.
The 32 players in question -- headlined by big man Jason Collins, three-time All-Star Richard Hamilton and two-time NBA champion Lamar Odom -- are included here because they've neither signed with a team overseas nor announced their retirement.
