I think it’s too early to tell.  Considering how the draft goes will determine what’s needed.  Len is the only true 5 on the roster with Dedmon not returning is a need!  Would like to see good depth behind Trae!

1. Kevin Durant
Player Option / Small Forward / 6-9 / Team: Golden State Warriors
26.0 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 5.9 apg
One of the three best players in the NBA. Rumors are swirling about his interest in joining the Knicks, but when it comes time to make a decision, will he really opt to leave the perfect situation he’s currently in?

Agent: Rich Kleiman 2018/19 Earnings: $30,000,000 Career Earnings: $157,183,333

2. Kawhi Leonard
Player Option / Small Forward / 6-7 / Team: Toronto Raptors
26.6 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 1.8 spg
Now healthy, he’s one of the best players in the league again and will surely command a huge contract next summer. The question is: Has Toronto done enough this season to convince him to stay long-term?

Agent: Dennis Robertson 2018/19 Earnings: $23,114,066 Career Earnings: $60,899,944

3. Kyrie Irving
Player Option / Point Guard / 6-3 / Team: Boston Celtics
23.8 ppg, 6.9 apg, 40.1 3P%
One of the hardest-to-defend point guards in the league. Will he listen to outside suitors this offseason or is him re-signing in Boston an inevitability?

Agent: Jeff Wechsler 2018/19 Earnings: $20,099,189 Career Earnings: $75,108,436

4. Kemba Walker
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-1 / Team: Charlotte Hornets
25.6 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 5.9 apg
For the past three seasons, he has performed at an elite level but hasn’t been paid like it. That will undoubtedly change this offseason.

Agent: Jeff Schwartz 2018/19 Earnings: $12,000,000 Career Earnings: $46,199,401

5. Klay Thompson
Unrestricted / Shooting Guard / 6-7 / Team: Golden State Warriors
21.5 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 40.2 3P%
One of the best shooters in league history, he is also an extremely able defender who seemingly never gets injured. 2019 will probably be the summer he gets his first massive contract, and it’ll probably come from Golden State, barring a huge surprise.

Agent: Greg Lawrence 2018/19 Earnings: $18,988,725 Career Earnings: $59,318,274

6. Jimmy Butler
Player Option / Shooting Guard / 6-7 / Team: Philadelphia 76ers
18.7 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 1.9 spg
A tough, two-way wing who can defend multiple positions and score 20 per night at an efficient level. His fit with the 76ers isn’t totally ideal, however, so it wouldn’t be shocking to see him end up on a different team this summer.

Agent: Bernie Lee 2018/19 Earnings: $19,841,627 Career Earnings: $60,025,227

7. D’Angelo Russell
Restricted / Point Guard / 6-5 / Team: Brooklyn Nets
21.1 ppg, 7.0 apg, 36.9 3P%
He played the best basketball of his young career this season, helped lead Brooklyn to a playoff spot and got the first All-Star bid of his time as a professional. Looks to be someone the Nets might build around, but those plans could change depending on how they fare in free agency this summer.

Agent: Austin Brown 2018/19 Earnings: $7,019,698 Career Earnings: $15,998,280

8. Tobias Harris
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-9 / Team: Philadelphia 76ers
20.0 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 39.7 3P%
After averaging career-highs across the board this season, he couldn’t be going into free agency at a better time.

Agent: Torrel Harris 2018/19 Earnings: $14,800,000 Career Earnings: $55,749,880

9. Kristaps Porzingis
Restricted / Power Forward / 7-3 / Team: Dallas Mavericks
After a trade landed him in Dallas, team owner Mark Cuban made it clear the organization plans to keep him around for the long haul.

Agent: Janis Porzingis 2018/19 Earnings: $5,697,054 Career Earnings: $12,953,040

10. Khris Middleton
Player Option / Small Forward / 6-8 / Team: Milwaukee Bucks
18.3 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 4.3 apg
One of the most underrated wings in basketball. He scores efficiently and also distributes, rebounds and defends at above-average rates for his position. First-time All-Star this season.

Agent: Michael Lindeman 2018/19 Earnings: $13,000,000 Career Earnings: $46,177,719

11. Nikola Vucevic
Unrestricted / Center / 7-0 / Team: Orlando Magic
20.8 ppg, 12.0 rpg, 3.8 apg
His numbers this year, across the board, were monstrous, but a porous showing in the playoffs could hurt his stock as a free agent.

Agent: Rade Filipovich 2018/19 Earnings: $12,750,000 Career Earnings: $42,838,639

12. DeMarcus Cousins
Unrestricted / Center / 6-11 / Team: Golden State Warriors
16.3 ppg, 8.2 rpg, 1.5 bpg
Upon returning from a torn Achilles, he had a good run to close the season, even flashing moments where he looked like his old self. However, a quad injury in Game 2 of the playoffs will force him to miss the postseason, and cast a shadow on his impending free agency.

Agent: Jarinn Akana 2018/19 Earnings: $5,337,000 Career Earnings: $80,711,986

13. Julius Randle
Player Option / Power Forward / 6-9 / Team: New Orleans Pelicans
21.4 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 3.1 apg
Elite finisher around the paint. Specializes in using athleticism to drive by slower big men. Averaged career numbers in multiple categories this year.

Agent: Aaron Mintz 2018/19 Earnings: $8,641,000 Career Earnings: $13,545,962

14. Al Horford
Player Option / Center / 6-10 / Team: Boston Celtics
13.6 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 4.2 apg
He doesn’t score a bunch of points, but his all-around game is excellent. Few big men share his blend of playmaking and defense.

Agent: Jason Glushon 2018/19 Earnings: $28,928,710 Career Earnings: $129,458,059

15. Marc Gasol
Player Option / Center / 7-1 / Team: Toronto Raptors
13.6 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 4.4 apg
His skill as an outside shooter and passer should help his game age nicely. Does a bit of everything from the center position. His showing in the playoffs, primarily his outstanding defense, will help elevate his stock as a free agent.

Agent: Steve Heumann 2018/19 Earnings: $24,119,025 Career Earnings: $128,292,718

16. Bojan Bogdanovic
Unrestricted / Small Forward / 6-8 / Team: Indiana Pacers
18.0 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 42.5 3P%
Put up a career-high in points, rebounds and assists. One of the best shooters in the NBA. His value as a free agent is only hurt by his lackluster defense and the fact he just turned 30. 

Agent: Jason Ranne 2018/19 Earnings: $10,500,000 Career Earnings: $21,091,796

17. Brook Lopez
Unrestricted / Center / 7-0 / Team: Milwaukee Bucks
12.5 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 36.5 3P%
One of the few big men in the league who can shoot threes and protect the paint at above-average rates. He’s already in his 30’s, but his game has aged nicely thanks to his high skill level.

Agent: Darren ‘Mats’ Matsubara 2018/19 Earnings: $3,382,000 Career Earnings: $117,423,487

18. DeAndre Jordan
Unrestricted / Center / 6-11 / Team: New York Knicks
11.0 ppg, 13.1 rpg, 64.1 FG%
Even in his 30s, still one of the best rebounders the NBA has to offer. Elite screen-setter as well.

Agent: Jeff Schwartz 2018/19 Earnings: $22,897,200 Career Earnings: $106,710,175

19. Malcolm Brogdon
Restricted / Point Guard / 6-5 / Team: Milwaukee Bucks
15.6 ppg, 3.2 apg, 42.6 3P%
Can play either guard spot effectively, both on offense and defense. Has blossomed into a knockdown three-point shooter. 

Agent: Danielle Cantor 2018/19 Earnings: $1,544,951 Career Earnings: $2,237,611

20. Nikola Mirotic
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-10 / Team: Milwaukee Bucks
15.2 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 36.5 3P%
An adept floor-spacer from the 4-spot with quick feet on the defensive end. Can be quite streaky with his shot, however, which hurts his value.

Agent: Bill Duffy 2018/19 Earnings: $12,500,000 Career Earnings: $29,131,175

21. Paul Millsap
Team Option / Power Forward / 6-8 / Team: Denver Nuggets
12.6 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 1.2 spg
Averaging his lowest points per game in nine years. Still a versatile big man who can defend at a high level and score when needed. One of Denver’s better performers in the playoffs.

Agent: DeAngelo Simmons 2018/19 Earnings: $29,230,769 Career Earnings: $121,314,973

22. Goran Dragic
Player Option / Point Guard / 6-3 / Team: Miami Heat
13.7 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 4.8 apg
He displayed clear signs of regression this year, which makes sense since he’ll be entering his age-32 season next season. Reportedly undecided on whether or not he will exercise his player option this summer.

Agent: Rade Filipovich 2018/19 Earnings: $18,109,175 Career Earnings: $77,379,858

23. Danny Green
Unrestricted / Shooting Guard / 6-6 / Team: Toronto Raptors
10.3 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 45.5 3P%
Relocated his elite shooting form in a big way this season. Shot over 45 percent from three while playing hounding defense on the perimeter in 2018-19.

Agent: Joe Branch 2018/19 Earnings: $10,000,000 Career Earnings: $42,607,624

24. JJ Redick
Unrestricted / Shooting Guard / 6-4 / Team: Philadelphia 76ers
18.1 ppg, 2.7 apg, 39.7 3P%
Despite it being his age-34 season, putting up a career-high in points. One of the best sharpshooters the game has to offer.

Agent: Aaron Mintz 2018/19 Earnings: $12,250,000 Career Earnings: $78,516,715

25. Harrison Barnes
Player Option / Small Forward / 6-8 / Team: Sacramento Kings
16.4 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 39.5 3P%
He’s still just entering his prime even though it feels like he’s been around forever. Good scorer, especially out of the post, and was a true threat from three this year.

Agent: Jeff Schwartz 2018/19 Earnings: $24,107,258 Career Earnings: $57,874,032

26. Marcus Morris
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-9 / Team: Boston Celtics
13.9 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 37.5 3PT%
Provides the Celtics with an element of toughness they wouldn’t have without him. Solid scoring big man who can iso, post-up and shoot the long ball.

Agent: Rich Paul 2018/19 Earnings: $5,375,000 Career Earnings: $22,928,419

27. Thaddeus Young
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-8 / Team: Indiana Pacers
12.6 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 1.5 spg
A hugely impactful contributor thanks to his plus defense and finishing around the basket.

Agent: Jim Tanner 2018/19 Earnings: $13,764,045 Career Earnings: $81,810,523

28. Rudy Gay
Unrestricted / Small Forward / 6-8 / Team: San Antonio Spurs
13.7 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 40.2 3P%
Can still score when called upon. Maybe not at the high-volume pace of his prime, but he has become a better three-point shooter to make up the difference.

Agent: Roger Montgomery 2018/19 Earnings: $10,087,200 Career Earnings: $124,025,870

29. Ricky Rubio
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-4 / Team: Utah Jazz
12.7 ppg, 6.1 apg, 1.3 spg
Reliable floor general. Coach-on-the-floor type who has become a somewhat respectable three-point shooter. It seems likely that he’ll be wearing a different jersey next season.

Agent: Jeff Schwartz 2018/19 Earnings: $14,800,000 Career Earnings: $55,216,408

30. Derrick Rose
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-3 / Team: Minnesota Timberwolves
18.0 ppg, 4.3 apg, 37.0 3P%
Almost out of nowhere, he had moments this year where he resembled his old self. Shot a career-best percentage from three, which helped him offset his drop in athleticism. Nagging injuries still a problem.

Agent: BJ Armstrong 2018/19 Earnings: $2,176,260 Career Earnings: $120,415,866

31. Al-Farouq Aminu
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-9 / Team: Portland Trail Blazers
9.4 ppg, 7.5 rpg
Not a great scorer, but does the little things that help you win. Plus defender on the wing.

Agent: Raymond Brothers 2018/19 Earnings: $6,957,105 Career Earnings: $35,502,591

32. Willie Cauley-Stein
Restricted / Center / 7-0 / Team: Sacramento Kings

33. Jonas Valanciunas
Player Option / Center / 6-11 / Team: Memphis Grizzlies
15.6 ppg, 8.6 rpg
Put up crazy numbers per-36 minutes this season at 25.2 points and 13.8 rebounds per 36. Great rebounder and post scorer with a decent jumper.

Agent: Leon Rose 2018/19 Earnings: $16,539,326 Career Earnings: $45,082,618

34. Enes Kanter
Unrestricted / Center / 6-11 / Team: Portland Trail Blazers
13.7 ppg, 9.8 rpg
Great scorer down low, ferocious rebounder and a good finisher out of the pick-and-roll. His problems are a lack of a three-point shot and subpar defensive contributions. A good showing so far in the playoffs has helped his stock as a free agent.

Agent: Mark Bartelstein 2018/19 Earnings: $19,264,603 Career Earnings: $74,898,362

35. Terrence Ross
Unrestricted / Shooting Guard / 6-6 / Team: Orlando Magic

36. Terry Rozier
Restricted / Point Guard / 6-2 / Team: Boston Celtics
9.0 ppg, 3.9 rpg
Numbers have taken a dip now that he’s returned to a full-time bench role. Proved in 2017-18 that he can handle starting point-guard duties, and handle them dutifully.

Agent: Aaron Turner 2018/19 Earnings: $3,050,389 Career Earnings: $5,719,320

37. Elfrid Payton
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-3 / Team: New Orleans Pelicans
10.6 ppg, 7.6 apg

Agent: Aaron Mintz 2018/19 Earnings: $3,000,000 Career Earnings: $3,849,500

38. Patrick Beverley
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-1 / Team: Los Angeles Clippers

39. Trevor Ariza

41. Jabari Parker
Team Option / Small Forward / 6-8 / Team: Washington Wizards
14.5 ppg, 6.6 rpg

42. Kelly Oubre
Restricted / Small Forward / 6-7 / Team: Phoenix Suns
15.2 ppg, 4.7 rpg
Athletic wing who can make an impact as a cutter and on the offensive glass. In a bigger role with the Suns, he was able to put up career numbers as a scorer. However, shooting has regressed once again.

Agent: Bill Duffy 2018/19 Earnings: $3,208,630 Career Earnings: $6,019,920

43. Jeremy Lamb
Unrestricted / Shooting Guard / 6-5 / Team: Charlotte Hornets

45. Tomas Satoransky
Restricted / Shooting Guard / 6-7 / Team: Washington Wizards

46. Thomas Bryant
Restricted / Center / 6-10 / Team: Washington Wizards

47. Hassan Whiteside

Agent: Sean Kennedy 2018/19 Earnings: $24,434,262 Career Earnings: $49,157,652

48. Robin Lopez
Unrestricted / Center / 7-0 / Team: Chicago Bulls
9.5 ppg, 3.9 rpg
Numbers have taken a plummet as the Bulls have gone with a youth movement. Still a serviceable backup center.

Agent: Darren ‘Mats’ Matsubara 2018/19 Earnings: $14,357,750 Career Earnings: $78,484,389

49. Rajon Rondo
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-1 / Team: Los Angeles Lakers
9.2 ppg, 8.0 apg
Still a productive point guard who can rack up assists and wreak havoc defensively by jumping passing lanes. His man-to-man defense really dropped off this year, though.

Agent: Bill Duffy 2018/19 Earnings: $9,000,000 Career Earnings: $88,622,794

50. Taj Gibson
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-9 / Team: Minnesota Timberwolves

Unrestricted / Shooting Guard / 6-5 / Team: Indiana Pacers
12.2 ppg, 2.5 rpg

52. Reggie Bullock
Unrestricted / Shooting Guard / 6-7 / Team: Los Angeles Lakers
11.3 ppg, 2.7 rpg
Excellent spot-up shooter, but did not acclimate that well to playing with the Lakers. Still should receive good interest in free agency thanks to his skill set.

Agent: David Bauman 2018/19 Earnings: $2,500,000 Career Earnings: $10,857,804

Unrestricted / Center / 6-10 / Team: Brooklyn Nets

55. Kenneth Faried

56. JaVale McGee

57. Markieff Morris
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-10 / Team: Oklahoma City Thunder
9.4 ppg, 4.6 rpg

Agent: Rich Paul 2018/19 Earnings: $9,173,294 Career Earnings: $32,031,329

58. Jeff Green
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-9 / Team: Washington Wizards

59. Isaiah Thomas
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 5-9 / Team: Denver Nuggets
8.1 ppg, 1.9 apg

60. Aron Baynes
Player Option / Center / 6-10 / Team: Boston Celtics
5.6 ppg, 4.7 rpg

Agent: Daniel Moldovan 2018/19 Earnings: $5,193,600 Career Earnings: $25,627,060

61. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
Unrestricted / Shooting Guard / 6-5 / Team: Los Angeles Lakers
11.4 ppg, 2.9 rpg
Solid defender and merely a decent shooter from the 2-guard spot. Should have thrived next to LeBron, but he was never able to put it all together as a Laker.

Agent: Rich Paul 2018/19 Earnings: $12,000,000 Career Earnings: $29,741,533

62. Ishmael Smith
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-0 / Team: Detroit Pistons
8.9 ppg, 3.6 apg

Agent: Andrew Morrison 2018/19 Earnings: $6,000,000 Career Earnings: $23,863,089

63. Dewayne Dedmon
Unrestricted / Center / 6-11 / Team: Atlanta Hawks
10.8 ppg, 7.5 rpg

64. TJ McConnell
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-2 / Team: Philadelphia 76ers
6.4 ppg, 3.4 apg

Agent: Chris Emens 2018/19 Earnings: $1,600,520 Career Earnings: $4,471,631

65. JaMychal Green
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-8 / Team: Los Angeles Clippers
9.4 ppg, 6.3 rpg
Solid scorer and rebounder from the 4-spot who can space the floor from deep, making him a good fit as a modern big man.

Agent: Mike Hodges 2018/19 Earnings: $8,066,667 Career Earnings: $21,329,811

66. Jeremy Lin
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-3 / Team: Toronto Raptors
9.6 ppg, 3.1 apg
Put up all right numbers as a Hawk, but once he got traded to the Raptors, he completely fell out of the rotation. Not the best thing to happen when you’re about to hit free agency.

Agent: Jim Tanner 2018/19 Earnings: $12,516,746 Career Earnings: $67,002,087

67. Rodney Hood
Unrestricted / Shooting Guard / 6-8 / Team: Portland Trail Blazers

Maybe Millsap would come back lol. On the right deal, I would welcome him back with open arms. 

Yep, sad that we ever let him go, but looks like it was the right decision not to give him a max deal or close to it. 

It would be cool to have him back. He brings good defense, iso ability, and most of all, playoff experience.

Who said it was punishment?

The Raptors have been a perennial playoff contender for years. Kawhi makes them a championship team.

It's too bad for the Raptors they had to give up DeRozan as they could have had him, Kawhi, and Lowry (Green has played like garbage and that may be the difference in the Finals). However, they probably weren't going to land him in free agency if they waited so they had to make a play for Kawhi even though he's on an expiring contract.

everybody knows that at this time last year Leonard's name was being dragged thru the mud in the NBA.  Now the bandwagon has gotten behind him because he is balling in the playoffs...

I know Schlenk said we wont be major players in FA, but what kind of guys do you all see as reasonable fits/gets on the squad?

 

We need a center and back up point guard. I'd love to draft a couple wing men and sign Vooch and Collison in free agency. We'd be looking at something like:

  • Trae Young
  • Kevin Huerter
  • DeAndre Hunter
  • John Collins
  • Nikola Vucevic
  • Darren Collinson
  • DeAndre Bembry
  • Sekou Doumbouya
  • Omari Spellman
  • Alex Len
  • Jaylen Adams
  • Kent Bazemore
  • Taurean Prince
  • Deyonte Davis
  • Miles Plumlee

So you're taking some talking heads' speculations as gospel?

Kawhi wanted a trade. The Spurs clearly weren't going to give him away for nothing. If it was really just about punishment, they could have traded him to some garbage team. Instead they sent him to one of the best teams in the East and got DeRozan in return. That's not punishment, that's a business decision.

I don't pay much attention to what the media says. I know a healthy Kawhi is one of the three best players in the NBA.

If Dedmon signs elsewhere, which of these young FA Cs would you prefer? What would be your contract offer?

Thomas Bryant
Christian Wood
Kevon Looney

(You can add Willie Cauley-Stein to the list if you like, but I'm not a fan)

From that list definitely give me Klay. Wouldn't be mad at Oubre, Brogdon, Beverley or Kluber though. Not sure how Vooch got left off.

I think Orlando is going to go all in on Vooch, I suppose!

Of the three Looney is the guy for me. However I read something the other day where Kerr wants him to resign with the warriors.  He would be a great fit though!  I’m hoping that they won’t have much cap space!

Hawks listed as long-shot free agent destination for Klay Thompson, Tobias Harris

 

By Brad Rowland@BTRowland May 28, 2019, 2:40pm EDT

The Atlanta Hawks will enter free agency with approximately $43 million in salary cap space and, as a result, myriad possibilities exist for the franchise. It isn’t likely that Travis Schlenk, Tony Ressler and company can entice the likes of Kevin Durant or Kawhi Leonard to sign on the dotted line but, in the same breath, the Hawks should absolutely attempt to secure a meeting with the best of the best, if only to lay out the organizational vision that they’ve worked hard to construct in recent months.

While Durant and Leonard are unquestionably the top players on the free agent, there are other options and, on Tuesday, the good folks at BetOnline.ag released some interesting odds on where some players will play the first game of the 2019-20 regular season. The Hawks didn’t make the cut for odds with Durant, Leonard, Jimmy Butler, Khris Middleton or even a trade target in Anthony Davis, but Atlanta was mentioned in conjunction with Warriors guard Klay Thompson and Sixers forward Tobias Harris.

It is important to note that the Hawks were listed as the biggest long-shot for both players, landing at 16-1 in the betting market. Beyond that, these future wagering opportunities are designed with the intent to lure action and, well, they aren’t always based on serious intelligence from within the NBA community. Still, it is noteworthy that Atlanta would be mentioned, particularly given the fact that the organization enjoyed an encouraging step forward behind Trae Young, John Collins and Kevin Huerter this season.

Thompson is seen as very likely to return to Golden State and, at the age of 29, he is significantly older than other members of Atlanta’s core. Still, it is hard to ignore the connection between Thompson and Schlenk from their time with the Warriors and, simply put, Thompson would fit anywhere with his combination of elite shooting and strong on-ball defense.

As for Harris, he is closer to the age range that Atlanta would ideally target, turning 27 in July, and there could be some appeal in his skill set. After all, Harris did average 20.0 points and 7.9 rebounds per game between his stints with the Clippers and Sixers, with 39.7 percent three-point shooting to boot. However, Harris isn’t a perfect fit with the Hawks in that his best position might be power forward and, on the defensive end, he isn’t a dominant force by any means. Throw in the potential that the Sixers would pay handsomely to keep him in Philadelphia (after trading a large haul to acquire him) and the situation becomes less intriguing.

Realistically, the Hawks are listed with the longest odds for both players (see below) for a reason and there are other ways to spend the $40+ million in cap space. Still, it is probably a win for the organization to even gain entry into the discussions for max-level free agents and, by proxy, that is happening to some degree.
