An Early Guide to the 2013 NBA Free-Agent Class
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

It's going to be a busy summer in the NBA.

Though we had hoped that the trade deadline would help clear up some of the questions we had heading into the offseason, all it really did was generate more.

The 2013 free-agent crop isn't nearly as talented or star-laden as what we'll see in 2014, but there is a cascade of names worth monitoring all the same.

Will Dwight Howard and Chris Paul both begin next season haunting the sunny streets of Los Angeles? Which free agents are going to get overpaid? Which ones will be hunting for max deals? Where will some of the biggest names land?

Those queries, among a smorgasbord of others, are what we'll be posing over the next four-plus months.

And while nearly five months seems like plenty of time to prepare ourselves, there's no such thing as being too prepared. Sifting through this business is going to take some time.

So much, in fact, that a free agency primer seems highly appropriate this time of year.
