#1 Chris Paul: Unrestricted Free Agent
18.6 Ppg, 5.4 Reb, 7.9 apg
When healthy, CP3 is without a doubt the best floor general in basketball. By proving his doubters wrong this postseason, Paul proved he is capable of leading the offense in crunch time. Paul took over game 5 against the Utah Jazz, scoring 41 points in 38 minutes and countless other fourth quarters throughout the postseason. Chris Paul was able to showcase the efficient floor general he always has been, the floor general of a generation. Any team should jump at the thought of signing him this offseason.
#2 Elfrid Payton: Unrestricted Free Agent
12.7 Ppg, 5.3 Reb, 6.2 Apg
Payton is still an unproven player but his age (24) coupled with his potential, may make him worth a gamble for some team. A proven defender with great vision, Payton brings playmaking potential to whatever team he is on. A streaky shooter, Payton brings high defensive upside to the guard position. Able to lead the first string offense or even come off the bench, his time in the league has shown him as a serviceable PG. With the Suns drafting French Point Guard Elie Okobo and the Suns denying his $10 million qualifying offer, some team may be able to steal Payton away for a low amount of money.
#3 Isaiah Thomas: Unrestricted Free Agent
15.2 Ppg, 2.1 Reb, 4.8 Apg
Thomas’ 2017-2018 campaign was one he surely would like to forget. Never fully able to recover from his hip injury, Isaiah shot below 40% this season. Thomas still brings scoring and playmaking to any team willing to sign him but he may never be the player he was in Boston. His ability is still hindered by him being a liability on the defensive end as teams will constantly attack him with switches. Last season will surely hurt his ability to command a large sum of money this Free Agency. Look for Isaiah to find a home as a 6th man this upcoming offseason for a playoff team this offseason.
#4 Rajon Rondo: Unrestricted Free Agent
8.3 Ppg, 4.0 Reb, 8.2 Apg
Rondo is your prototypical PG, a coach on the court who makes the right play consistently. Rondo brings years of playoff experience and knows what it takes to not just make the finals, but to win the championship. His attitude has always been his biggest downfall and the only thing holding teams back from signing him. Hopefully after another stellar playoff performance, Rondo may have positioned himself nicely for Free Agency. If he is to leave the Pelicans this offseason, look for him to land somewhere a player of his caliber is needed.
#5 Tony Parker: Unrestricted Free Agent
7.7 Ppg, 1.7 Reb, 3.5 Apg
After returning from his quad injury, Parker proved to be a serviceable backup for any contending team. Losing a step or two didn’t affect Parker too much as he was still able to get to his spots while creating for his teammates. Parker brings efficient playmaking you can trust to any second unit he runs. Look for TP9 to land to a contender for low cost this offseason.
Fred VanVleet: Restricted Free Agent
8.6 Ppg, 2.4 Reb, 3.2 Apg
Shabazz Napier: Restricted Fire Agent
8.7 Ppg, 2.3 Reb, 2.0 Apg
