Top Remaining Free Agents — Aug. 25 Edition

Carlos Boozer

What if I told you your favorite team could land a power forward that has never averaged less than 10 points per game in any of his 13 NBA seasons? He won a gold medal for Team USA. He is widely viewed as a good locker room guy. His basketball IQ is just south of MENSA territory. Who is the mystery free agent forward? It’s Carlos Boozer. In a statistically down season, Boozer averaged 11.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game and

Scotto: Top 10 Free Agents of 2016

Kevin Durant

Tristan Thompson remains the biggest fish in this summer’s free agent sea, as noted in our updated rankings. In fact, LeBron James has called Thompson a “key piece” to Cleveland’s hopes of winning a title this season. So why the elongated stalemate between the two sides? It comes down to leverage. Cleveland has it for the upcoming season, but Thompson has it afterward. Confused? Let me explain. [Read more…]

Top Remaining Free Agents — Aug. 8 Edition (UPDATED)

money

As I said recently on NBC Sports Radio and in my previous free agent rankings — there are still bargains to be had on the free agent market. Just ask the New York Knicks, who landed Kevin Seraphin on a one-year, $2.8 million deal. Seraphin was No. 1 on our previous free agency rankings. Seraphin turned down several significant offers for a better chance at playing time with the prospect of cashing when the salary cap spikes next summer. [Read more…]

Top 10 Remaining Free Agents: Aug. 4 Edition

The problem with giving midsummer report cards is that they’re like a “progress report” from your kid’s school. “So-and-so is in danger of getting a D in math,” one such report from my youngest son’s school said. He ended up with a B-plus. Being halfway through the summer means a lot of things (halfway toward a supertan, a month closer to a second straight golf-free year), but it does not mean you can give an entirely accurate reading of a team’s offseason.

Sheridan’s Top 10 Free Agents: Aug. 1 Edition

kickingcan

So the month of August begins with another head-scratcher award for Sam Hinkie. The mad scientist in Philadelphia had earned plenty of props on this site for his acquisition of three rotation players — Jason Thompson, Nik Stauskas and Carl Landry — along with a first-round pick and the right to swap two additional two first-round picks with Sacramento in the early-July deal that allowed the Kings to clear the cap space to sign Rajon Rondo, Marco Belinelli and Kosta Koufos.

Free agency shopping at the end of July is similar to waiting all month for the giant coupon booklet from your neighborhood grocery store. With that in mind, which players will be this year’s bargains on the clearance shelf? Can you find a scoring guard and a big man off the bench with a $2.8 million mid-level exception? Yes, that is somewhat akin to a two-for-one deal on soon-to-expire potato chips at your favorite grocery store. Some of the unrestricted free agents in

Ty Lawson

Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has never been shy about making a splash, and he did so again Sunday night by agreeing to a deal with the Denver Nuggets for troubled guard Ty Lawson. With Patrick Beverley re-signed and Lawson used to playing starter’s minutes, will Morey reenact Tom Hanks’ famous, “Houston, we have a problem” line from Apollo 13 at some point next season? Time will tell. For now, Morey is thinking more along the lines of, “Houston, we have
