Every July a team in the NBA hopes to shift the balance of power by bringing in a big name free agent and this off-season will be no different. There may not be a long list of superstar players in this year’s class but this is the deepest free agent pool we’ve have in quite some time and with all the cap space available this July coupled with the jump expected in 2016, it’s going to make for a very intriguing off-season.
This free agency special targets a specific crop of players and list what would be the best fit for their talents and the team’s needs but also indicate who they will likely ultimately sign with.
Five straight playoff appearances, 50-plus wins in three consecutive seasons and a Western Conference Final run mixed in. The recent run in Memphis has been excellent, but if Marc Gasol goes elsewhere it’s going to get ugly fast.
