We all remember the NBA free agent market last season, when teams were feverishly spending and trying to recruit some of the biggest names in the game. LeBron James, Amar'e Stoudemire, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh. It wasn't as much a free-agency period as it was a recruiting period.
This summer probably won't have the same feel.
There was one possible big-ticket free agent entering the summer of 2011 in Carmelo Anthony. But with Anthony going to New York and signing an extension and Chris Paul headlining the 2012 class, the free-agent cupboard is relatively bare in terms of big names.
That doesn't mean there aren't good players available come July 1 when the free agency period begins. So with that in mind, here are the top 25 players available this summer.
