This year’s NBA postseason has been a spectacle to watch despite the big-market teams being eliminated from contention. The Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks are fighting to emerge atop the Eastern Conference, while the Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Clippers are competing to represent the Western Conference.
Regardless of how the Conference Finals series play out, it’s never too early to look forward to NBA free agency. There is a loaded group of players expected to hit free agency this summer, leading to plenty of headlines for fans to pay attention to.
Guys like Mike Conley, DeMar DeRozan, Dennis Schroder, Spencer Dinwiddie, and PJ Tucker are all names that should draw a ton of interest on the open market.
There will be no shortage of money to go around, too. Many teams placed on emphasis on maintaining significant salary cap space for 2021 NBA free agency in hopes of pursuing elite talents.
With Kawhi Leonard likely to return to the LA Clippers and top-level talent like Giannis Antetokounpmo signing extensions, there is money to spend but superstars aren’t there to pay. There are plenty of intriguing veterans who will be sought after, though.
With a little over a month until NBA Free Agency gets underway, let’s dive into my early predictions for Mike Conley, DeMar DeRozan, Dennis Schroder, Spencer Dinwiddie, and PJ Tucker.
