The 2019 NBA free agency period was one of the wildest in league history. Hundreds of players hit the open market, and when the dust settled, eight 2019 All-Stars found new teams through either free agency or trade. As much as fans enjoy that kind of movement, next summer figures to be significantly quieter.
It’s a little tricky to plot out the 2020 free agent crop because teams have all summer to offer extensions to players. Many of the players on this list, particularly those who are rookie extension-eligible, will likely never see free agency. Draymond Green, easily the second-best unrestricted free agent, has already signed a new deal. As of now, the list is dominated by new Lakers star Anthony Davis. He’s expected to re-sign with the Lakers next summer, but that’s a long time from now and we’ve seen that anything can happen in this league.
Besides that, the class isn’t nearly as overwhelming as this year’s, and it’s easy to see why teams were eager to save up money for the 2019 spending spree. Here’s a glance at next year’s NBA free agency options.
