As we inch closer to the possible December 22 start for the NBA season 2020-2021, we listed down the top free agents available in the market right now.
These players will have a huge impact and had an outstanding last season that caught the other teams\’ interests.
Without further ado, let’s go into it.

  1. Fred VanVleet
    The two-way guard of the Toronto Raptors continued to shine last season. After playing a significant role during their championship run in 2019, VanVleet elevated his game further, averaging 17.6 points and 6.6 assists per game. The absence of Kawhi Leonard made VanVleet, the former back-up guard of Kyle Lowry, become one of Toronto\’s leader.
    Head Coach Nick Nurse stated that they have no intention of trading VanVleet, but he is a free agent. If other teams offered him a more significant contract than Toronto can give, he might have switch team. We never know, but one sure thing is that many teams are courting VanVleet right now.
  2. Montrezl Harrell
    The energetic big man and the Sixth Man of the Year awardee had his contract expired. He might choose to stay with the Los Angeles Clippers with its new head coach or find another team. Harrell called himself the modern Dennis Rodman. He is a workhorse inside the paint, and he brings energy every time he comes in.
    His impact will be huge to any team, especially teams lacking production from the big man, whether offense or defense.
    However, he had a poor playoff performance that hurt his value on the market. Factors came to play during that run for Harrell as he missed several games due to his grandmother\’s passing.
    Will the offseason cleared his head and is back to his old self already? Harrell is an excellent fit because of his ability to defend and score.
  3. Camelo Anthony
    The future hall of fame made a remarkable NBA comeback last season playing for the Portland Trail Blazers. During his half a year stay with them, Anthony was able to showcase that he has gas left and can be efficient, especially in scoring.
    The 36-year old forward played the started role in Portland and had several clutch baskets in the season. Many had written him off, but Anthony proved that he still belongs in the league.
    His mid-range game can be beneficial in teams struggling with one-on-one scoring. Carmelo Anthony can score despite being guarded by two. He will bully defenders in a one-on-one post matchup.
    Although the league is in a new era wherein three-points are the new slamdunk, Anthony\’s mid-range game was still significant. He can give a bucket anytime when he is left on an island with only one defender.
    Aside from his scoring, Anthony can bring leadership to the team and teach the young generations.
  4. Danilo Gallinari
    Gallinari is a very underrated player. He was a big part of the Clippers run in the playoffs in 2019 and the Oklahoma City Thunder last season.
    They weren\’t expected to reach the playoffs, but they did.
    Gallinari is a pure bucket, just like Anthony. He is a floor spacer with his three-point shooting. He can give at least 15 points per game on any given night.
    Gallinari is also a good passer.
    These players are the big catch in this year’s free agency.
    And with the season about to start, teams must already work their way to their desired players.

Supporting LeBron in the dub was Anthony Davis with 27 points, nine rebounds, and two steals.

Rui Hachimura made his presence felt in his second game in Lakers uniform with 19 markers, and nine boards.

Russell Westbrook continued to shine off the bench with 17-6-8 and three steals.

Next stop for the Lakers is at Indiana while the Knicks remain at home to welcome Miami.
