Restricted free agency in the NBA can be a very tricky thing. More often than not, players end up re-signing with their own teams, through one of two means. Either the player and team negotiate a deal on their own, or a player goes out and signs an offer sheet, and his original team matches.
The thought of losing an asset for nothing isn't ideal for general managers, so usually steps are taken to avoid this. Whether that means a sign-and-trade deal or something else, it's pretty rare to see a team just let a player go via restricted free agency.
With that being said, this year's crop of restricted free agents features quite a few flight risks, mainly because they no longer fit or because they may try and force their way out and earn a payday that's too difficult to swallow.
The following five restricted free agents may not all leave by signing an offer sheet their original team refuses to match, but here's guessing one way or another they'll be changing teams this offseason.
