With the NBA playoffs in full swing, it’s easy to forget that we are just months away from one of the most exciting times of the year. The offseason has never lacked storylines before, and with a handful of great players becoming free agents, 2013 should prove to be no exception.
There are a number of players who don’t crack the top 10, yet are still noteworthy. O.J. Mayo and Chris Kaman will have a chance to test their value, J.J. Hickson is coming off a career year and guards J.J. Redick, Tony Allen and Kevin Martin will have the opportunity to take their role-playing styles to new teams, should they choose to do so.
But while these players would be great additions to almost any squad, there are a few standouts who could help shape the face of any NBA franchise. The world wants to know where Dwight Howard will be in 2014, but we can’t forget about the rest who will be vying for big-time deals once the year comes to an end.
