I can't be the only one getting the Christmas feeling with the free agency period start to begin on December 9.
With word already coming in that Tracy McGrady has signed with the Atlanta Hawks and that Chuck Hayes may just join the Sacramento Kings, we're getting geared up for what is sure to be another electric offseason. This one won't carry as much significance as last year's, but it'll be just as important as teams look to fill in holes and gaps that a number of these free agent role players could address.
What this also means is that a lot of money is set to be thrown around, as a great number of teams will make a push to the top free agents. Affordable, big name players like Nene Hilario and David West are set to the free agent market, and because they're affordable, a great number of teams are set to make a push for these two, as well as a number of other free agents, and possibly sign them to lucrative deals.
There won't be any $100 million contracts, but there sure will be a number above the $40 million mark, as role players are set to reaffirm the theory that NBA role players are grossly overpaid for their specialty services. With DeAndre Jordan set to receive a deal that's going to make him $8 million every year for the next five seasons, it's obvious that we haven't learned anything from the lockout.
The offseason is about to begin, and we have the top 15 free agents and what they're set to make, so cheat ahead and give a look at where your favorite free agents are headed and how much they'll be making.
