Top 5 NBA Free Agents

While it appears the NBA is set to begin on December 22nd, many teams around the league are trying to make some moves to upgrade their clubs. From trades, the upcoming draft, and of course, free agency, management teams are working hard to see what moves have potential and what moves will never materialize. The work never stops. 

Here's the Top 5 Free Agents in the NBA:

1. Anthony Davis: The Lakers big is fresh off his championship domination and will be fresh off his player option, as it's a foregone conclusion Davis will decline this. Expect him to sign a massive deal to stay with LeBron and the Lakers. Can't blame him for that. 

2. Brandon Ingram: This restricted free-agent was dealt in the famous Anthony Davis trade with the Lakers and the Pelicans gave Ingram every opportunity to shine, and he did just that. As he's restricted, any offer can be matched by the club and expect this to be the case. The Pelicans see Ingram has a nice compliment to the franchise, Zion Williamson. Ingram was most improved last season, and next year may be even better.

3. Fred VanVleet: The Toronto Raptors point-guard has blossomed into one of the best guards in the league, who can run the point and work off the ball like he does sometimes with Kyle Lowry. The unrestricted free-agent is open to sign with any club, and the New York Knicks would love to make this happen. The Raptors intend to try their best to keep FVV, so don't expect him to go anywhere. IF he does, you can expect the contract to be enormous. 

4. Montrezl Harrell: The NBA's sixth-man of the year had a fine season off the pine for the Clippers, but the off court personality conflicts appear to be too much for Harrell to return to LA. He's unrestricted and free to sign anywhere, and the Toronto Raptors, Milwaukee Bucks and Charlotte Bobcats appear to be interested. Expect to see Harrell in a new uniform next year, after averaging 18.6 points per game and 7.1 rebounds last season.

5. Bogdan Bogdanovic: The sharpshooter from Sac-Town is restricted and the Kings can match any offer, and expect them to be given one to contemplate, Bogdanovic is a hot commodity. The 28-year-old is in just his fourth year in the NBA, and the Milwaukee Bucks are expected to take a huge run here. 

The NBA is an interesting place at the moment as only a certain number of teams have any cap space to work with, and with the league's uncertain financial status. this off season will be much different than any other.
