NBA Free Agents 2011: Top Young Talents Available on the Market

With so much talent on the market and so little time, it's completely possible for some of these organizations to possibly miss out on a hidden gem if they're too focused on one player.

What organizations are going to attempt this offseason is to spend as little money as possible in preparation for the 2012 free-agency class which features names like Dwight Howard, Chris Paul and Chris Kaman. This 2011 class features only the likes of Nene Hilario, Jamal Crawford and David West which is still quality, but not as impressive as 2012's or last year's.

Instead, this offseason needs to be used as a preparation so teams will be able to stock up on role players that will either help convince their desired players to join or to help fill in some holes that were exposed last season. While a number of veterans will be desired, organizations will also have to take a step back and take a look at some of the young talent that this offseason has to offer.

There are numerous young and talented players that are out there that failed to make this list and it's only because they pale in comparison to the five mentioned here. These five players have the advantage of youth with them, but also contain the advantage of being extremely mature for their age and playing with fundamentals rather than flash, which is what most of these young players attempt to do too much of these days.

These five players will be heavily coveted, so it would be best for teams to begin making their pitches as soon as they possibly can.
