NBA Free Agency 2012: With Dwight Howard off the Market, Who Are the Big Names?

The trade deadline is behind us.

Thank goodness that's over.

Dwight was leaving, then he was staying. Then he was leaving again and then he finally decided to waive his Early Termination Option and stay for another full season, ending the speculation surrounding the Orlando Magic center's immediate future.

With Dwight off the market, only a handful of other players moved around.

The Milwaukee Bucks-Golden State Warriors trade was the real standout trade, with the Denver Nuggets, Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Clippers surprising the NBA with a swap of players that put JaVale McGee in Denver and Nick Young in L.A.

The focus now switches to summer and the free agency class of 2012. It's certainly not going to live up to the 2010 class that included LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Carlos Boozer, but it boasts plenty of names who can turn a playoff team into an NBA title contender.
