Top 5 NBA Free Agents still available
The big names are off the board: Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Gordon Hayward, Paul Millsap, Blake Griffin, Kyle Lowry etc. So who is left? Here are the top five left….
1. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
Detroit all but flat-out said it would match any offer for KCP and that seems to have depressed the market for the restricted free agent. With a smaller amount of cap room can a team like the Nets swoop in and offer a deal too high for Detroit?
2. Rudy Gay
He’s an old-school volume scorer who was already slowing down before he suffered a ruptured Achilles last January (he should be good to go around the start of next season). Both Miami and Utah have become interested since missing out on Hayward. Gay reportedly would like to play for the Thunder, but if Miami/Utah/another team come in with a larger offer he likely will take the money.
3. Nerlens Noel
Dallas traded for the rangy, defensive-minded center at the deadline last season and see him as part of the future. Other NBA teams know this so nobody has stepped up with an offer for the restricted free agent.
4. Derrick Rose
In a shrinking point guard market, he may be the best choice teams now have. The Clippers reportedly are interested, and the Knicks have been in touch as well, other teams may jump in over the next 48 hours, too. Rose put up solid numbers last season, on paper he looked like an average NBA point guard, but he’s still a defensive liability and kind of only plays one style. Maybe the Bucks?
5. Kelly Olynyk
A casualty of Boston’s need to clear out cap space for Gordon Hayward, he is suddenly an unrestricted free agent and the one of the best players available. Already Atlanta and Indiana have interest, but there will be a lot more teams lining up. Olynyk is a 7-footer who is mobile and shot 35.7 percent from three last season. He is a decent defender on the perimeter but struggles physically with strong players down on the block.
