It's never easy to predict when a player is going to hang the laces up. There are guys still kicking around the league that probably should have retired a few years ago, and then there are retired players who could step on the court right now and still hack it.

Whether it's a lucrative contract, a successful career or a lengthy tenure with one team, all good things eventually must come to an end. The following players should be ready to start a new era with a different team, or close the book on their careers completely after this season.
