Who should we target with Haywood's contract?

This is perhaps getting ahead of the current Cavs situation, but here we go...

Assume the Cavs enter the 2015 offseason with Irving-Wiggins-LBJ-TT-Zeller as starters. The clear holes in the roster are PF and C. The Cavs will be over the cap at that point, so siging Tier 1 or 2 free agents outright is out of the question. However, we just gained a very unique asset in Brendan Haywood's contract. It essentially enables us to offset 10.5 million in salary for free in a trade, as Haywood can be immediately cut by the receiving team for $0.

So what should we use Haywood's unique contract on?

Kevin Love or Omer Asik might be two of the more obvious answers in a free agent S&T, but what about someone still under contract in a possible rebuilding situation like Demarcus Cousins?

Thoughts? The possibilities are endless.
