Advice on DL360 Gen6 Servers + Storage

I bought some DL360 Gen6 servers to use as a sandbox for playing with Microsoft's Scale-Out File Server.  They don't have SAS HBA's with external connectors in them.  I'm considering a D2700 for the JBOD storage.  I'm a bit new at this, so I could stand a little advice from someone who knows more about it.

1. Can someone recommend a good HBA for these servers that I can get reasonably on the used market?  I don't need hardware RAID since SoFS uses JBOD.
2. Are there issues I need to be aware of connecting 2 of the DL360's to a single D2700?

Thanks in advance for the help.
