Free agents market looks quite pale today, especially if you compare it with the crazy 2019 situation. The virus outbreak is also stirring the pot, but it doesn’t mean that we cannot tell you about skilled and great free agents of the current NBA offseason.
Most fans believe that if Davis decides to decline his team’s $29 million offer, he`s going to be the most desirable free agent in the current offseason. He`s certainly the most well-known player on our list. Even though he declined the offer of the New Orleans Pelicans and seems to stay with the Lakers, more and more web-resources tend to believe that you can never know, especially when it comes to the salary cap space decline.
Rumors are that the 22-years old Pelicans` small forward is going to be one of the most promising NBA prospects. Yet he has a restricted status and he`s most likely to stay with the Pelicans. Ingram and Williamson are two key players of the New Orleans team and the managers will do their best to keep the young forward and build an unstoppable offensive force for the upcoming seasons.
Some people tend to say that this player is too old to be an exciting player. Some of them tend to say that he`s too injured and unreliable. And only a small portion of true basketball fans know that VanFleet is a perfect playmaker and one of the most wanted free agents in the 2020 offseason. There`s no doubt that this talented player and the national idol will not be left behind. It`s almost certain that he won`t stay with the Toronto Raptors if they don`t fork out for him.
San-Antonio Spurs player with an interesting name has a choice and will most likely change his team by next season. Rumors say that he isn`t really happy with the Spurs, but the exact decision isn`t known yet. DeRozan is an effective scorer, and he might pick up a $28 million player option this year and wait for the next season, which will bring him far more interesting opportunities.
Washington Wizards` power forward from Latvia is another desirable free agent now. He has dramatically improved his game over the last years, and people believe that Washington will try to keep him. Despite this fact, there might be a load of upscale teams that will offer what is due to such a skilled scorer.
As you can see, the 2020 NBA offseason is indeed a bit poky and vague. Compared to the boom that took place in 2019, the free agents market is stagnating now. It`s a perfect time for the all-stars listed to set their own conditions and pick the best options for themselves, considering the fact that their current teams might not have enough money to keep them.
