Basically none although the teams have been quite busy in player
(eg. Washington, LA Lakers).

Possibly Boston, Milwaukee, Minnesota (3 $100 million contracts), New
(Williams, Van Horn, Kittles?).

Alonzo Mourning - both - worth it - center
Juwan Howard - both - not worth it - power forward
Shawn Kemp - both - worth it - power forward
Kevin Garnett - both - question mark man - forward
Shaquille O'Neal - both - the most worthy player - center
Notice, no guards have so far signed for $100 million plus!
