NBA free agency has been exciting and fast paced. Many players have already found new homes while others have re-upped with their current team. In a shocking move, former Pacers forward David West who opted out of a $12 million year has signed with the Pacers for $1.2 million. Lets take a look at who else is still out there that can help a team today.
JR Smith – Guard
Smith had a JR Smith like year for the Cavs last year. Unfortunately, he didn’t finish as hot as he would have liked to this year thus diminishing his value in free agency. Smith will likely look for a multi year deal with a contender. There is still a chance he returns to the Cavs.
Enes Kanter – Center
Kanter was traded at the deadline from Utah to Oklahoma City. He played well offensively but struggled defensively. He still put up good enough numbers to get a good deal. Problem is he’s a restricted free agent and these deals take time. It’s unclear if he fits new head coach Billy Donovan’s system in OKC.
Jeremy Lin – Point Guard
Remember this guy? It’s Linsanity. After the Rockets made him an offer the Knicks could not match 3 years ago, Lin is now back on the market. He has not had as much success since leaving the Knicks and has played backup point guard for much of his deal. Still Lin can provide minutes for a team. The Mavs have been linked to talks with Lin, but I think we all want to see Lin back in New York.
There are many other great free agents out there. Teams have been spending at record pace and may not have much more money to offer players left out there.
