2013 Restricted Free Agents NBA Teams Are Most Likely to Let Walk

The Sacramento Kings extended a qualifying offer to Tyreke Evans on Tuesday, officially making him a free agent and kicking off a few weeks of "will he stay or will he go?" speculation.

The first few weeks following the NBA Finals always seem exciting, although the new collective bargaining agreement between owners and players has calmed things down a bit.

Teams have to extend qualifying offers to eligible players by June 30 if they want to make them restricted free agents, which is followed by a moratorium on player movement until the league's audit is completed.

Players can sign qualifying offers with teams during that period, but very little is allowed besides re-signing players already on the roster or inking rookie deals.

That means restricted free agents get a handful of days to shop their value around the league before taking the best offer back to their team.

The question we're looking at right now is which of the players who are eligible to become restricted free agents will actually land back with their old teams?

It was once a foregone conclusion that a hefty portion of the group would be back in their old uniform, but very few things are certain with wasted salary being extremely detrimental to teams under the current CBA.

A lot of players are no-brainers to return to their current teams, but there are a few whom we can look at and determine they'll be on the move without question.
