Restricted / Power Forward / 6-9 / Team: Toronto Raptors
16.9 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 3.1 apg

A quick, explosive power forward who fits the modern game well thanks to his coast-to-coast prowess and ability to defend more than one position.

Agent: Todd Ramasar
2019/20 Earnings: $2,351,838
Career Earnings: $6,405,441
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-7 / Team: Golden State Warriors
7.4 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 6.9 apg

His scoring took a dip in 2018-19, but with the absence of Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson next season, he’ll be asked to take on a bigger role of the offense. Still an elite defender.

Agent: Rich Paul
2019/20 Earnings: $18,539,130
Career Earnings: $84,640,743
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-8 / Team: Denver Nuggets

A reliable vet big man who was a game-changer defensively for the Nuggets last season.

Agent: DeAngelo Simmons
2019/20 Earnings: $30,000,000
Career Earnings: $181,245,742
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-9 / Team: New York Knicks
13.9 ppg, 5.6 rpg

Stout two-way power forward who can space the floor from three. He will get every chance to shine on what projects to be a young, and potentially fun, Knicks team.

Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-10 / Team: Toronto Raptors
15.0 ppg, 8.1 rpg

Had a resurgent campaign in 2018-19, as he was finally moved to playing center nearly full time. At the 5, he presents legit mismatch problems. He also had a fantastic showing in the Finals.

Career Earnings: $119,814,305
Restricted / Power Forward / 6-10 / Team: Phoenix Suns
10.6 ppg, 5.6 rpg

Finally on a team that will need his scoring and playmaking at the 4-spot, don’t be surprised if he has a career season in 2019-20.

Agent: Misko Raznatovic
2019/20 Earnings: $3,481,985
Career Earnings: $10,749,666
Player Option / Power Forward / 6-8 / Team: Atlanta Hawks
14.5 ppg, 6.6 rpg

Will get a shot at both forward positions with the Hawks. If he can continue to stay relatively healthy in 2019-20, he could be looking at a long-term contract offer next summer.

Agent: Mark Bartelstein
2019/20 Earnings: $6,500,000
Career Earnings: $48,739,712
Team Option / Power Forward / 6-10 / Team: New York Knicks

Team Option / Power Forward / 6-9 / Team: New York Knicks
10.8 ppg, 6.5 rpg

It’s tough to see where his minutes will come by on a roster with so many younger and higher upside big men. Could be a prime trade candidate come January.
