2021 NBA free agent rankings: Top players available next offseason

- by

The future is not what it used to be. After a flurry of extensions during the offseason, the much-vaunted 2021 free-agent class doesn’t look as exciting as many hoped it would be – especially if Kawhi Leonard and Chris Paul opt in.

Anyways, we have ranked the top talents available next summer. Check out our full list below.

1
Kawhi Leonard / SF / LA Clippers (Player Option)

If not for load management, he’d be a perennial MVP candidate. Even so, he’s so smooth on offense that he has even made pull-up midrange jumpers cool again, and his defense remains among the stingiest in the NBA.

2020/21 stats: 26.6 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 4.9 apg, 0.5 bpg, 51.1 FG%, 38.7 3P%
2020/21 earnings: $34,379,100
Career earnings: $117,409,262

2
John Collins / PF / Atlanta (Restricted)

John Collins, Atlanta Hawks

Incredibly bouncy big man who is a beast scoring out of the pick-and-roll. Possesses a great jump shot, too, even from three-point range. However, he still needs to improve his defense.

2020/21 stats: 18.0 ppg, 7.6 rpg, 1.4 apg, 1.0 bpg, 53.6 FG%, 38.8 3P%
2020/21 earnings: $4,137,302
Career earnings: $6,922,560
Agent: Sean Kennedy

3
Mike Conley / PG / Utah

Mike Conley handling the ball

A solid three-point shooter with an automatic off-hand floater in the paint. Sound floor general whose numbers might improve playing next to a less ball-dominant shooting guard.

2020/21 stats: 16.1 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 5.7 apg, 1.4 spg, 44.4 FG%, 42.2 3P%
2020/21 earnings: $34,502,130
Career earnings: $174,039,464
Agent: Mike Conley Sr.

4
Victor Oladipo / SG / Miami

We’re years removed from his last All-Star campaign, which lasted only 36 games before he went down with a major injury. Will the dynamic 2-guard ever get back to that elite level again?

2020/21 stats: 20.0 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 4.5 apg, 1.5 spg, 39.9 FG%, 33.1 3P%
2020/21 earnings: $21,000,000
Career earnings: $84,487,440
Agent: Aaron Turner

5
Jarrett Allen / C / Cleveland (Restricted)

Cleveland Cavaliers' Jarrett Allen looks to pass in the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021, in Cleveland.

Elite shot-blocker and finisher in the paint. Knows how to use his otherworldly wingspan to make an impact when he’s on the court.

2020/21 stats: 13.5 ppg, 9.9 rpg, 1.7 apg, 1.7 bpg, 66.9 FG%
2020/21 earnings: $3,909,902
Career earnings: $6,124,680
Agent: Jim Tanner

6
DeMar DeRozan / SG / San Antonio

Throwback 2-guard who does the majority of his damage in the mid-post or closer to the basket. Not an analytics darling due to poor outside shooting and makes little defensive impact. He’ll still give you 20 a night, though.

2020/21 stats: 20.0 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 7.2 apg, 0.9 spg, 48.4 FG%, 30.8 3P%
2020/21 earnings: $27,739,975
Career earnings: $148,965,795
Agent: Aaron Goodwin

7
Chris Paul / PG / Phoenix (Player Option)

Chris Paul, Phoenix Suns

Still one of the best pure floor generals in the NBA, despite getting up there in age. He’ll be 36 by the last year of his deal, a season in which he’ll be owed $44.2 million. Would he really turn that down to hit unrestricted free agency?

2020/21 stats: 16.0 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 8.8 apg, 1.2 spg, 48.6 FG%, 39.1 3P%
2020/21 earnings: $41,358,814
Career earnings: $258,818,571
Agent: Steve Heumann

8
Kyle Lowry / PG / Toronto

Even in his mid-30s, he remains one of the steadiest point guards in the league, capable of scoring, creating and defending at high levels.

Career earnings: $159,657,917
Agent: Mark Bartelstein

9
Lonzo Ball / PG / New Orleans (Restricted)

Lonzo Ball, New Orleans Pelicans

Great playmaker and rebounder at the lead-guard spot. He has really improved his outside shooting, though he still struggles at finishing near the basket.

2020/21 stats: 14.5 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 5.1 apg, 1.3 spg, 42.8 FG%, 38.7 3P%

Career earnings: $22,467,840
Agent: Rich Paul

10
Andre Drummond / C / Cleveland

Andre Drummond, Cleveland Cavaliers

Rebound machine who can finish above the rim offensively. Zero shooting range. Inconsistent defender due to up-and-down levels of effort on that end.

2020/21 stats: 17.5 ppg, 13.5 rpg, 2.6 apg, 1.2 bpg, 47.4 FG%
2020/21 earnings: $28,751,774

Career earnings: $119,865,661
Agent: Jim Tanner

12
Spencer Dinwiddie / PG / Brooklyn (Player Option)

Bucket-getting lead ball-handler with great size for the position at 6-foot-6. At his best going at opponents one-on-one and shooting over them off-the-dribble.

2020/21 stats: 6.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 3.0 apg, 0.7 spg, 37.5 FG%, 28.6 3P%

Career earnings: $16,057,728
Agent: Jason Glushon

13
Dennis Schroeder / PG / LA Lakers

Dennis Schroeder, Los Angeles Lakers

Highly energetic floor general who can do some scoring and playmaking, but is particularly effective on the defensive end, where he uses his great lateral foot speed and long arms to be a nuisance against opposing guards.

2020/21 stats: 14.9 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 4.5 apg, 0.9 spg, 44.0 FG%, 31.7 3P%

Agent: Jason Glushon

15
Montrezl Harrell / PF / LA Lakers (Player Option)

Montrezl Harrell, Los Angeles Lakers

A force down-low as a finisher and offensive rebounder. His paint defense, however, needs to improve, as he hasn’t offered much resistance on that end throughout his career.

2020/21 earnings: $9,258,000

Agent: DeAngelo Simmons

17
Lauri Markkanen / PF / Chicago (Restricted)

Kelly Olynyk / C / Houston

Elite outside shooter and passer for a big man, but struggles to protect the rim and rebound. Overall, a positive presence when he’s in the game.

Bruce Brown / PG / Brooklyn (Restricted)

High-energy guard who excels as a driver and slasher. Solid finisher around the basket, but not much of an outside shooter. Good defender for his position.

55
Carmelo Anthony / PF / Portland

Legendary small forward who will be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer. Has proven he’s got plenty left in the tank in 2020-21, too, as a scorer and outside shooter.

2020/21 stats: 13.9 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 1.5 apg, 0.9 spg, 41.3 FG%, 38.7 3P%

Career earnings: $235,637,258
Agent: Aaron Mintz

56
TJ McConnell / PG / Indiana

Backup guard who isn’t much of an outside shooter but is one of the best steals merchants in recent basketball history. Absolute pest of a defender with unreal instincts jumping passing lanes. Good quickness and floor vision.

2020/21 stats: 6.7 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 6.8 apg, 2.0 spg, 52.6 FG%, 31.6 3P%

Career earnings: $57,994,383
Agent: Jeff Schwartz

58
Jeff Green / C / Brooklyn

Perfect role player for teams with title aspirations thanks to versatility. Good defender who can cover multiple positions, and a plus-three-point shooter. Despite getting older, he can still throw down dunks.

2020/21 stats: 9.5 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 1.4 apg, 0.7 spg, 50.7 FG%, 42.2 3P%
2020/21 earnings: $2,564,753
Career earnings: $69,870,057
Agent: Jason Glushon

59
Dwight Howard / C / Philadelphia

Proved last season that he’s willing and able to play a reserve role at an extremely high level. Posting huge numbers per-36 minutes. Does the dirty work defensively and on the glass.

2020/21 stats: 6.1 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 0.8 apg, 0.4 spg, 58.7 FG%, 36.4 3P%

Career earnings: $55,851,872
Agent: Charles Briscoe

62
Gorgui Dieng / C / Memphis

Despite elongated release, a big man who can hit threes at a high level when left open. Solid team defender.

2020/21 earnings: $17,287,640
Career earnings: $52,101,702
Agent: Thaddeus Foucher

63
Markieff Morris / PF / LA Lakers

Big man who is a versatile defender thanks to foot quickness and size, but a streaky outside shooter. Solid face-up game and unafraid to post up and score on smaller defenders.

2020/21 stats: 5.4 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 1.0 apg, 0.3 bpg, 40.7 FG%, 32.2 3P%

2020/21 earnings: $2,320,044
Career earnings: $75,235,799
Agent: Austin Walton

65
Hassan Whiteside / C / Sacramento

Can post double-doubles with ease and one of the best statistical shot-blockers in recent league history. The problem comes with his effort as well as with his propensity to chase stats as opposed to playing within his role.

2020/21 stats: 8.3 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 0.5 apg, 1.3 bpg, 58.0 FG%
2020/21 earnings: $2,320,044
Career earnings: $100,668,707
Agent: Sean Kennedy

66
DeMarcus Cousins / C

Severe injury history has sapped him of his peak athleticism, but he proved this year he can still contribute as a scorer, rebounder and playmaker, just not at the levels we’re used to seeing from him.

2020/21 stats: 9.6 ppg, 7.6 rpg, 2.4 apg, 0.8 spg, 37.6 FG%, 33.6 3P%

Career earnings: $86,887,515
Agent: Jeff Schwartz

67
Meyers Leonard / C

Will have to return from a tough injury but is a veteran big man who can knock down threes with his feet set. Has deep range. Should be a much better defender with his athleticism and size.

2020/21 stats: 3.3 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 0.7 apg, 42.9 FG%, 42.9 3P%
2020/21 earnings: $9,400,000
Career earnings: $50,742,479
Agent: Aaron Mintz

68
Mike Scott / PF / Philadelphia

Floor-spacing power forward with some defensive versatility. Shouldn’t be expected to do too much but spot-up from three.

Career earnings: $22,059,513
Agent: Aaron Mintz

69
Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk / SF / Oklahoma City (Restricted)

Guard with great size and a textbook shooting stroke, but hasn’t been consistent enough as a shooter in the NBA. 3-and-D type.

2020/21 stats: 6.8 ppg, 2.0 rpg, 1.4 apg, 0.7 spg, 37.7 FG%, 33.5 3P%
2020/21 earnings: $1,663,861
Career earnings: $2,904,546

70
Mike Muscala / C / Oklahoma City

Floor-spacer out of the frontcourt, but a poor rebounder and defender.

2020/21 earnings: $2,283,034
Career earnings: $14,969,519
Agent: Sean Kennedy

71
Furkan Korkmaz / SG / Philadelphia

Guard with a quick release, and trigger, from beyond the arc, but not a consistent enough outside shooter.

2020/21 stats: 8.0 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 0.8 apg, 0.6 apg, 38.3 FG%, 34.5 3P%
2020/21 earnings: $1,762,796
Career earnings: $4,826,484
Agent: Mike Lindeman

72
Wesley Matthews / SG / Los Angeles Lakers

Defensive-minded guard with some outside shooting ability, but streaky from three. Makes winning plays and a positive impact.

2020/21 stats: 4.2 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 1.1 apg, 0.5 spg, 35.6 FG%, 33.7 3P%

Limited player but he does have good size and a picture-perfect shooting stroke.
