#10: Marcus Camby, Center, Unrestricted Free Agent
|Where will the Camby Man finish out|
Prediction: Signs with Miami Heat
#9: Courtney Lee, Shooting Guard, Unrestricted Free Agent
|Lee will be a sought-after|
commodity for his shooting prowess.
Prediction: Signs with Chicago Bulls
#8: Ramon Sessions, Point Guard, Unrestricted Free Agent
Bio: Last season, Sessions was traded from the Cavaliers to the Lakers, where he played well for a while. However, he completely disappeared in the playoffs, and was simply outplayed by Denver's Ty Lawson and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook. Sessions and the Lakers were in negotiations, but in a shocking twist of events, the Lakers agreed to a sign-and-trade deal with the Suns that landed them Steve Nash, shutting down all negotiations with Sessions. It has been rumored that the Mavericks are scouting Sessions, after losing out on Nash, Deron Williams, Jason Kidd, and Jeremy Lin. The Mavericks need a point guard desperately, so I think they will give Sessions the money he wants.
|Sessions is one of several quality point guards still on the|
free agent market.
Prediction: Signs with Dallas Mavericks
#7: O.J. Mayo, Shooting Guard, Unrestricted Free Agent
|Can Mayo live up to his draft expectations|
with a change of scenery?
Prediction: Signs with Indiana Pacers
#6: Chris Kaman, Center, Unrestricted Free Agent
|Kaman is one of the more undervalued centers|
in the NBA.
Bio: Kaman was part of the deal that sent Chris Paul to the Clippers. Kaman did not want to play for the Hornets, but still produced some decent numbers. He's now 30 years old, but can still start for a team in need of a center. Indiana has been talking with him, as insurance in case they decide not to match Portland's maximum contract offer to Roy Hibbert. However, I think Hibbert's offer will be matched by the Pacers, and they will leave Kaman in the dust. There are still some teams in need of a center though, including the Hawks, Hornets, Trail Blazers, and Heat, among others. I think Kaman will get a fair deal somewhere, because he still has value and produces. Although the Hawks' main target is probably Dwight Howard, getting Kaman would allow them to move Al Horford to power forward, which is a more natural position for him. They could always put Kaman in a deal for Howard anyways.
Prediction: Signs with Atlanta Hawks
#5: Brook Lopez, Center, Restricted Free Agent
|If there's any sure thing in free agency besides Duncan returning|
to the Spurs, it's Lopez returning to the Nets.
Prediction: Re-signs with Brooklyn Nets
#4: Lou Williams, Point Guard, Unrestricted Free Agent
|Williams is surely leaving Philly,|
but where will he go?
Prediction: Signs with Portland Trail Blazers.
#3: Kris Humphries, Power Forward, Unrestricted Free Agent
|Humphries has value, so will the|
Nets have the cap flexibility to sign him?
Prediction: Re-signs with Brooklyn Nets.
#2: Ersan Ilyasova, Power Forward, Unrestricted Free Agent
|Ilyasova will have suitors,|
including some from Europe.
Prediction: Signs with Philadelphia 76ers
#1: Tim Duncan, Center, Unrestricted Free Agent
Bio: Duncan is truly the most established, talented player left in this year's free agency class, but he's been quoted as saying he wants to be "...a Spur for life." I have to believe that after they make any smaller, necessary moves, the Spurs will sign him to a deal that will allow him to finish out his career in San Antonio. He is the face of the franchise and I believe he'll wait for the Spurs to give him a deal, I just can't imagine him going anywhere else.
|Duncan will be "A Spur for life."|
Some honorable mentions who just missed my Top 10: Carl Landry, Jeff Green, Randy Foye, Antawn Jamison, D.J. Augustin.
|Green is expected to stay with the|
Celtics after heart surgery last year.
Honorable Mention Predictions
1. Carl Landry signs with Cleveland Cavaliers
2. Jeff Green re-signs with Boston Celtics
3. Randy Foye signs with New York Knicks
4. Antawn Jamison signs with Charlotte Bobcats
5. D.J. Augustin signs with Houston Rockets
Though most of the All Star talent in this year's free agent class have agreed to contracts, there are still several contributors who can produce for whatever team they play for next season. How will the rest of the free agent frenzy unfold? Stay tuned, there's still a lot more business to be handled this summer.
