When free agency kicks off Wednesday a lot of movement is expected to come. With a huge salary cap increase on the horizon, many players want to get paid. Some free agents have made their moves clear some haven’t but here are five free agents bound to have a huge impact when pen goes to paper with their perspective teams:
The Atlanta Hawks surprised everyone when they cruised to the number-one seed in the eastern conference with a 60-win season, but even though they just had the best season in franchise history, my gut tells me this is as good as it gets for this group.

Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer brought home the honors of NBA Coach of the Year this season after leading the Hawks to a franchise-record 60-win season and a number one seed in the Eastern Conference.
