NBA Free Agents 2011: The Best Player at Each Position

The NBA free agent class of 2011 has a lot of potential, but it has nowhere near the star power of the 2012 class of free agents.

This year is headlined by Jamal Crawford, David West, Tyson Chandler and Caron Butler while 2012 is headlined by guys like Dwight Howard, Chris Paul and Deron Williams.

That pretty much blows this year's guys out of the water, right?  Well, yes, it does, but that doesn't mean there is little value to be had in this year's crop. In fact, there are quite a few game changers currently without a deal.

Whenever the lockout does end, the NBA title could be swayed just through free agency, mostly because the Mavericks could end up losing players who were very responsible for getting them to those heights in 2011.

So I'm just going to give you a nice, concise five-slide wrap up of the top guy at each position right?  Pssh, there's no way I would skimp out on you all like that.

What I have done for you all here is picked out the best player at each position,but on top of that I have picked out the best players to fill each important bench role that you could ask for, basically putting together a team out of this year's free agents.

Now, I have some kind of a brain (some, but not much), so obviously I'm not going to go out and say that Tyson Chandler is the best option as a backup center because he is going to go to a team and be a starting center.  Your backup options would be guys like Jeff Foster or Spencer Hawes.
