The 2013 NBA trade deadline passed on Feb. 21—very quietly—and very few deals were made. All of the major names that circulated in the hours prior to the 2013 NBA trade deadline will begin to make headlines anew this summer when the crop becomes free agents.
Teams will still be pursuing Josh Smith on draft night, and the same holds true for Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap and even Dwight Howard. Some, even all, of the free agents available will just sign outright as free agents, but there could be some sign-and-trade agreements in the works.
Regardless of means of purchase, teams will come knocking on the doors of a few prize free agents, whom we'll take a peek at here.
