NBA Free Agents 2014: Updated Rankings of Top 5 Players at Every Position

Four Eastern Conference All-Star starters from 2013 could all hit the free-agent market this summer.

The 2014 NBA free-agent market has the potential to reshape the entire Association.

Four of the Eastern Conference All-Star starters from 2013—LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh—could all become unrestricted free agents this summer, if so desired. If the Miami Heat have their way, all four will be taking their talents to South Beach this fall, per Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst of

Incredibly, those aren't the only top prizes who might be available this summer. Multiple-time All-Stars such as Tim Duncan and Zach Randolph could decline their player options and hit the market, while Dirk Nowitzki is already set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Throw in a loaded restricted free-agent market, including the likes of Utah Jazz swingman Gordon Hayward, Detroit Pistons big man Greg Monroe and Phoenix Suns combo guard Eric Bledsoe—not to mention Houston Rockets forward Chandler Parsons, per Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski—and the league could look radically different once the dominoes begin to fall.

Note: These rankings include unrestricted free agents (UFA), restricted free agents (RFA), players with early termination options (ETO) and players with player options (PO). Each player's position is determined by where they played most during the 2013-14 season, per Basketball-Reference's play-by-play data.
