The 2013 NBA free-agent class has the potential to reshape the league.
CP3 appears likely to re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers, but Howard's future with the Los Angeles Lakers is considerably less certain. He's already given indications that he won't rush the free-agent process, according to CBSSports.com's Ken Berger, much to the Lakers' chagrin.
Howard also reportedly voiced his frustrations about coach Mike D'Antoni with Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak at the end of the season, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com. The big man reportedly felt marginalized by D'Antoni, which doesn't appear to bode well for a continued relationship between the two.
Kupchak told reporters in April that D'Antoni would be back as the Lakers' head coach in 2013-14, making Howard's impending free agency that much more interesting. He'll have no shortage of suitors stacked with available cap space, to say the least.
Howard isn't the only free agent who could be on the move this summer. The six players featured here (in alphabetical order by first name) stand out as those most likely to depart for greener pastures in free agency.
