Who is left in free agency? Here’s a list of the key names.

16 Comments

We have made it through the bulk of free agency.

Fans are always looking for the next, best thing, the guy who can come in and make a difference. It’s now August and time to be honest — any guy who can really help your team has already been picked up. There are a few respectable role players left, each trying to get more money than teams are willing to shell out at this point. But the guys who make a big difference are gone.

Still, there are some names you know still out there. Here is a list of the key free agents on the market (this is not a complete list), by position, and in alphabetical order).

Covet them if you want. Just don’t over value them.

Point guards: Leandro Barbosa (really a combo guard), Derek Fisher, Jonny Flynn and Jannero Pargo.

Shooting guards/Small forwards (swingmen): Matt Barnes, Josh Childress, Carlos Delfino, Ryan Gomes, Tracy McGrady, Dominic McGuire, Jodie Meeks and Mickael Pietrus.

Power forwards/Centers (bigs): Ivan Johnson, Kenyon Martin, Darko Milicic, and Anthony Tolliver.
