The NBA never really stops. It doesn't matter that we're currently in the playoffs; teams are already starting to fret about the top free agents, like Jamal Crawford, who could be leaving or arriving within a couple of months.
While there's certainly a lot of questions surrounding this offseason, due to a looming NFL-style work stoppage, that's a job for the owners and NBA players union reps to worry about.
NBA general managers just have to proceed as if it's business as usual.
The 2011 offseason will be much different than last year, as many of the biggest names already moved in 2010.
What GMs will find this season are the complementary pieces that can help round out a starting five or solidify their bench depth for the final push.
The names might not be flashy, but these 10 players will end up playing big roles in 2011. Chances are, it will be for a different team than in 2010.
NOTE: This list will be limited only to those players who are unrestricted free agents this summer. While restricted free agents can certainly field offers from other teams, it's more likely that their current franchises match the tender. We'll save predicting those scenarios for a different time...
