NBA 2013 Free Agent Class - Best Ever?
So without any further introduction, let’s just take a look at the players that could find themselves in a new home this summer…
The Cream of the Crop - The top prizes in this year’s free agency class
Chris Paul, PG, 28 years old
Probably the biggest name of the free agent market since LeBron, CP3 could very well be back in Los Angeles next year, but there’s a lot of money and interest in Atlanta and Dallas and even a few whispers that the Knicks may be making a move so stay tuned!
Dwight Howard, C, 27
Again, there’s a good possibility Howard won’t find himself a new team next year, but with the nightmare that was the 2012-2013 season in Los Angeles, Howard could very well see what kind of offers he gets from suitors such as Atlanta and Houston.
Game-Changers - Calling them consolation prizes is something of an understatement, these guys can take their teams to the next level given the right situation.
Josh Smith, F, 27
If Atlanta strikes out on the two biggest names on the market, there’s a solid chance Smith will get a max-contract from the team he’s played his whole career with. But think about how much of a difference he could bring to teams missing a key component to their offense as well as a defensive stopper - Cleveland, Houston, maybe New York again?
Paul Millsap, PF, 28
There’s just nothing negative you can say about the 28-year-old Millsap. He plays his heart out on both ends of the floor and always puts his team in better position to win - again Atlanta is one of the rumored suitors as well as Houston if the Jazz don’t hold on to him.
