The NBA has a lot of exciting free agent signings this offseason, and if you’re interested in seeing some of them, you can head to the league’s official site and look for some of the names to follow.
But don’t forget to check out our exclusive free agent rankings, which include all the biggest names, the most intriguing players, and the best free agents available.
Let’s get to it.
Top 10 Free Agent Players to WatchTop 10 free agents to watch this offseason:The Warriors, Cavaliers, and Thunder are looking for big things out of Kevin Durant.
It’s going to be tough to find a team that will be able to afford him, but he’s the best player on the planet right now, and he’s one of the most coveted players in the league right now.
The Thunder signed a max-contract guard for $95 million, which is the best offer of the free agent class.
Durant’s contract is up in 2022 and could be worth more if he can stay healthy.
If he can’t, he will be a restricted free agent in 2019.
The Cavaliers could be looking for a bigger deal out of James Jones, who signed a six-year, $130 million deal.
He’s a great player, and while it may not be a good fit for Cleveland, it’s still the right fit.
The Bucks have a huge hole at point guard, and they’re hoping to add a franchise player in Kevin Love, but the situation is so dire that they’re unlikely to do anything.
Love has made it clear he wants to play in Cleveland and is committed to making it happen, but there’s not enough cap space to sign a free agent like him, and there’s no guarantee the Cavs will pay him what he wants.
The Raptors have to get better.
They’ve signed Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan and have one of those guys who could be a superstar in the making.
They have the money, but it would be tough for them to afford Lowry and his contract.
The Thunder have a good young core, but they need to improve.
They’re trying to make a run, but their core just isn’t that good anymore.
The Spurs signed DeMarre Carroll, but not before he signed an extension that is almost certainly more money than the Raptors are willing to pay.
It will be tough in 2019 to find anyone willing to take him, especially if they can’t afford him.
The Celtics and Mavericks are both looking to build around Isaiah Thomas.
Thomas has been on a tear since signing a $120 million contract in March, and it looks like he’ll be back to his best in 2020-21.
The Celtics were interested in Thomas, but this deal looks like a great fit for them, and I’d expect them to be able afford him this summer.
The Bulls have a great chance to make the playoffs in 2020, but I’m skeptical that they can afford to spend $30 million per season on a point guard.
They could use a big man who can knock down threes and who can shoot threes, and Kyle Korver could be that guy.
The Kings have a few solid options at the shooting guard position.
Eric Gordon is the most talented player on their roster and he could be the best shooting guard in the NBA.
Marcus Thornton is a very talented big man, but his contract is only worth $30.4 million over four years.
If they could get him for $10 million per year, they could be in good shape for 2019-20.
The Heat have to sign Josh Richardson, but that will make them more expensive in the future.
They need a guy who can create for himself and get the offense going.
Richardson has played in all 82 games in his career and has averaged 13.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per game.
He could be their next big star.
The Lakers have a lot to like in Jahlil Okafor, but with no cap space for him, they’ll have to pay him a lot.
They can’t keep him around as a restricted player, so they’ll be forced to let him walk in 2019-2020.
The Lakers will likely give up something like $50 million to get him, which makes sense.
The Mavericks, Lakers, and Cavaliers are all looking for help at power forward, but a big name like Goran Dragic is a must.
Dragic averaged 13 points, seven rebounds, one assist in 30 games last season, and will be an unrestricted free agent next summer.
If the Suns are serious about tanking and keeping the season alive, they can take advantage of the Lakers’ need for help up front.
The Pacers are looking to make some major changes this offseason.
Indiana signed Roy Hibbert to a six year, $104 million contract and will have the opportunity to re-sign him if he doesn’t perform like he did last season.
They still have a chance to sign Paul George, but you can bet the Pacers won’t sign
