2020 NBA free agent rankings: Top players available this offseason

- by

Only two All-Stars will hit the market this offseason in what looks like one of the weakest free agent classes (on paper) we have seen in a while.

We have ranked the main free agents anyway, though.

POINT GUARDS / SHOOTING GUARDS /
SMALL FORWARDS / POWER FORWARDS / CENTERS

1
Kyle Korver / SG / Milwaukee

Kyle Korver, Milwaukee Bucks

One of the best three-point shooters in NBA history. Still knocking them down at an elite rate now, as a 39-year-old.

Career earnings: $83,881,635

2
Shabazz Napier / PG / Washington

Entertaining ball-handler who can really do some scoring off the dribble. Undersized so he struggles finishing in the paint at times.

Agent: Brandon Rosenthal

3
Dion Waiters / SG / LA Lakers

Dion Waiters, Miami Heat

Supremely confident bucket-getter who struggles with efficiency but can get hot and drop 20 on any given night. Underrated defender who uses toughness and strength well on that end.

2019/20 earnings: $12,475,385
Career earnings: $56,999,655
Agent: Rich Paul

4
DeMarre Carroll / SF / Houston

Veteran 3-and-D swingman. Can do some scoring off the bounce too. Has a solid floater. Defends multiple positions. Even plays some small-ball power forward.

2019/20 earnings: $15,450,051
Career earnings: $84,155,699
Agent: Bouna Ndiaye

6
Emmanuel Mudiay / PG / Utah

He’s been up-and-down throughout his career, but recently it appears he’s figuring out his role as a score-first backup ball-handler.

2019/20 earnings: $1,737,145

8
Thabo Sefolosha / SG / Houston

2019/20 earnings: $2,564,753
Career earnings: $47,289,981
Agent: Guy Zucker

9
Jordan McRae / SG / Detroit (Restricted)

Solid score-first 2-guard who can attack going right or left. Comfortable using his pull-up mid-range jumper. Not an elite athlete, so struggles to finish in traffic.

2019/20 stats: 11.5 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 2.5 apg, 40.7 FG%, 35.7 3P%
2019/20 earnings: $1,254,933
Career earnings: $2,379,790
Agent: Derrick Powell

10
Tyson Chandler / C / Houston

Getting up there in age, but still a solid defensive center who can rebound some. Good finisher thanks to sheer size.

2019/20 earnings: $2,564,753

Career earnings: $14,409,377
Agent: Mark Bartelstein

13
Lance Stephenson / SF

At his best in the NBA, he was a do-it-all forward who scored, rebound and assisted – usually in an exciting manner. We haven’t seen that version of him in a long while, though.

2019/20 stats:
2019/20 earnings: –
Career earnings: $35,457,264
Agent: Reggie Brown

14
Brandon Knight / SG / Detroit

Experienced point guard who went through multiple major injuries that have really hampered his formerly high nightly impact. Still in his 20s, however, so there’s a chance he can regain some of his former form.

2019/20 stats: 7.3 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 2.8 apg, 35.3 FG%, 34.4 3P%
2019/20 earnings: $15,643,750
Career earnings: $81,820,597
Agent: Darren ‘Mats’ Matsubara

15
Kenneth Faried / PF

Super energetic big man who thrives on the glass and can finish above the rim. Lack of size and of a three-point shot hurt him in the modern game.

2019/20 stats:
2019/20 earnings:
Career earnings: $56,898,674
Agent: Thaddeus Foucher

16
Jordan McLaughlin / PG / Minnesota (Restricted)

Fun playmaker with some panache. He’s got a great ability to create space for himself. Creative passer and uses high agility to get to the rim. Can really shoot it.

2019/20 stats: 7.6 ppg, 4.2 apg, 1.6 rpg, 48.9 FG%, 38.2 3P%
2019/20 earnings: $79,568
Career earnings: $79,568
Agent: Mitchell Butler

17
Andre Roberson / SG / Oklahoma City

Missed over a year-and-a-half due to injuries and setbacks, but before that, was one of the best wing defenders in basketball. For how good his defense is, his shooting is just as nonexistent.

2019/20 stats:
2019/20 earnings: $10,740,740
Career earnings: $35,665,592
Agent: Bill Duffy

18

Career earnings: $6,933,100
Agent: Rich Paul

20
Kenrich Williams / SF / New Orleans

Loves to do the dirty work. Plays hard and possesses solid defensive instincts. Gets after it on the glass, but a streaky outside shooter.

2019/20 earnings: $1,416,852
Career earnings: $2,255,316
Agent: Adam Pensack

21
Anthony Tolliver / PF / Memhis

The prototypical floor-spacing power forward. On offense, he’s solely out there to shoot threes.

2019/20 stats: 3.5 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 34.8 FG%, 32.2 3P%
2019/20 earnings: $2,854,556

Agent: Larry Fox

22
Jeremy Lin / PG / Beijing Ducks (China)

Agent: Cervando Tejeda

24
Gary Payton II / PG / Washington

Defensive energy runs in his DNA. Has the physical tools to guard any backcourt player. Could be an elite steals guy one day. Explosive. Lacks creativity as a ballhandler and struggles as a shooter, making him a below-average offensive player.

2019/20 stats: 3.9 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 1.7 apg, 41.4 FG%, 28.3 3P%
