2021 NBA free agent rankings: Top point guards available right now

- by


Spencer Dinwiddie / PG / Last team: Brooklyn

Spencer Dinwiddie

Guard with great size and ball-handling ability who is at his best operating out of the midrange. Coming off a major injury, however, which could force him to accept a shorter-term deal this offseason.

2020/21 stats: 6.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 3.0 apg, 37.5 FG%, 28.6 3P%
Career earnings: $27,511,776
Agent: Jason Glushon

Dennis Schroeder / PG / Last team: LA Lakers

Dennis Schroeder

He’ll want to destroy footage of his latest postseason run ahead of free agency, but there is no doubt potentially interested teams will be concerned about what they saw. When in top form, though, he’s a top-tier backcourt defender and a decent scorer and playmaker.

2020/21 stats: 15.4 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 5.8 apg, 43.7 FG%, 33.5 3P%
Career earnings: $69,780,502
Agent: Alex Saratsis

Reggie Jackson / Last team: LA Clippers

Reggie Jackson

Experienced point guard who can knock down shots off the dribble and is usually looking to score rather than pass. His excellent playoff run has undoubtedly raised his price tag, though he was solid all season long for the Clippers.

2020/21 stats: 10.7 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 3.1 apg, 45.0 FG%, 43.3 3P%
Career earnings: $70,812,158
Agent: Aaron Mintz

Elfrid Payton / Last team: New York

Still a very limited shooter but good quickness and floor vision at the point guard spot. Feisty defender, too, though his size forces him to strictly guard fellow backcourt players.

2020/21 stats: 10.1 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 3.2 apg, 43.2 FG%, 28.6 3P%
Career earnings: $26,616,500
Agent: Chafie Fields

Raul Neto / Last team: Washington

Just put up career-highs in points and assists, though that might be a product of playing time more than anything. Undersized but tenacious. Limited athletically.

2020/21 stats: 8.7 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 2.3 apg, 46.8 FG%, 39.0 3P%
Career earnings: $8,909,194
Agent: Aylton Tesch

Isaiah Thomas / Last team: New Orleans

Must prove he can still contribute. Short stint with the Pelicans wasn’t overly impressive.

2020/21 stats: 7.7 ppg, 1.3 rpg, 1.7 apg, 33.3 FG%, 25.0 3P%
Career earnings: $31,309,253
Agent: Bernie Lee

Jeff Teague / Last team: Milwaukee

At this point, he’s pretty much a replacement-level point guard. Can run an offense off the bench and create for others some.

2020/21 stats: 6.7 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 2.4 apg, 43.3 FG%, 43.9 3P%
Career earnings: $99,236,542
Agent: JR Hensley

Mike James / Last team: Brooklyn

Quick point guard with confidence as a scorer and off-the-dribble shooting ability.

2020/21 stats: 7.7 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 4.2 apg, 37.0 FG%, 35.5 3P%
Career earnings: $402,450
Agent: Happy Walters

Dennis Smith / Restricted free agent / Last team: Detroit

Had moments last year with the Pistons where he flashed the explosive point guard he was drafted to be. Still young enough to have upside, but running out of time to show it more consistently.

2020/21 stats: 6.7 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 3.3 apg, 40.0 FG%, 32.8 3P%
Career earnings: $17,188,557
Agent: Raymond Brothers

Shane Larkin / Last team: Anadolu Efes (Turkey)

One of the best guards in Europe over the past few seasons. Despite short stature, very quick, changes direction exceptionally well and has deep range on his jumper.

2020/21 stats (Euroleague): 15.0 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 4.1 apg, 43.6 FG%, 39.2 3P%
Career earnings: $6,167,345
Agent: Jim Tanner

Shabazz Napier / Last team: Washington

Capable backup guard who can run a second-team offense and do some individual scoring. Quick crossover.

2019/20 stats: 7.1 ppg, 1.9 rpg, 2.5 apg, 39.7 FG%, 34.5 3P%
Career earnings: $10,032,282
Agent: Brandon Rosenthal

Emmanuel Mudiay / Last team: Utah

Great size for a point guard with some athleticism, but lacks any and all feel for offense, both as a scorer and passer.

2020/21 stats: 11.0 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 3.8 apg, 40.1 FG%, 32.3 3P%
Career earnings: $15,757,144
Agent: BJ Armstrong

Frank Jackson / Restricted free agent / Last team: Detroit

Serviceable reserve combo guard who can do some scoring and playmaking.

2020/21 stats: 9.8 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 0.9 apg, 45.7 FG%, 40.7 3P%
Career earnings: $4,511,492
Agent: Kevin Bradbury

Brad Wanamaker / Last team: Charlotte

Backup point guard who can run the offense, score at the rim and get teammates in the right spots.

2020/21 stats: 5.5 ppg, 1.7 rpg, 2.9 apg, 38.5 FG%, 18.8 3P%
Career earnings: $4,534,161
Agent: Happy Walters

Saben Lee / PG / Restricted free agent / Last team: Detroit

Decent outside shooter and creator, but still very much a work-in-progress.

2020/21 stats: 5.6 ppg, 2.0 rpg, 3.6 apg, 47.1 FG%, 34.8 3P%
Career earnings: $516,836
Agent: Darren ‘Mats’ Matsubara

Jordan McLaughlin / Restricted free agent / Last team: Minnesota

Undersized point guard, but a tough-nosed one who can shoot the ball and set up baskets. What he lacks in size, he makes up for in effort.

2020/21 stats: 5.0 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 3.8 apg, 41.3 FG%, 35.9 3P%
Career earnings: $583,328
Agent: Mitchell Butler

Quinn Cook / Last team: Cleveland

Point guard on the smaller side without the elite athleticism to make up for it. Can hit open threes with his feet set.

2020/21 stats: 3.3 ppg, 0.7 rpg, 0.8 apg, 42.6 FG%, 42.3 3P%
Career earnings: $6,812,336
Agent: Mark Bartelstein

Yogi Ferrell / Last team: LA Clippers

Quick point guard who can hit shots from three as well as run a second-team offense.

2020/21 stats: 5.6 ppg, 1.9 rpg, 2.2 apg, 35.1 FG%, 32.1 3P%
Career earnings: $8,435,042
Agent: Cervando Tejeda

Jeremy Lin / Last team: Beijing Shougang

Experienced point guard who was willing to play in the G League last year for another NBA shot, though one hasn’t come yet. Solid scorer.

2020/21 stats (G League): 19.7 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 6.4 apg, 50.5 FG%, 42.6 3P%
Career earnings: $64,498,737
Agent: Jim Tanner

Chris Chiozza / Last team: Brooklyn

Very quick point guard who plays with swagger. Can score and create for others in spurts.

2020/21 stats: 4.0 ppg, 1.1 rpg, 3.0 apg, 35.2 FG%, 31.0 3P%
Career earnings: $666,057
Agent: Robert Fayne

Matthew Dellavedova / Last team: Cleveland

Matthew Dellavedova, Cleveland Cavaliers

Looks to be in the final stages of his NBA career based on recent decline, but at one point was one of the toughest point guard defenders out there.

2020/21 stats: 2.8 ppg, 1.8 rpg, 4.5 apg, 25.0 FG%, 16.0 3P%
Career earnings: $43,258,256
Agent: Bill Duffy

Ryan Arcidiacono / Last team: Chicago

Off-ball point guard if that’s possible who can do some shooting with his feet set and put his body on the line when needed.

2020/21 stats: 3.1 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 1.3 apg, 41.9 FG%, 37.3 3P%
Career earnings: $7,501,633
Agent: Joel Bell

Frank Ntilikina / Last team: New York

Came in as a poor offensive player and that hasn’t changed in years. On the other end, excellent defender thanks to length and quick feet.

2020/21 stats: 2.7 ppg, 0.9 rpg, 0.6 apg, 36.7 FG%, 47.9 3P%
Career earnings: $18,689,218
Agent: Bouna Ndiaye

Tim Frazier / Last team: Memphis

Unselfish player who’d rather set up teammates than seek out his own shot, with good reason, as he’s unreliable as a shooter.

2020/21 stats: 1.6 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 3.2 apg, 15.0 FG%
Career earnings: $7,616,.221
Agent: Mark Bartelstein

Brandon Goodwin / Last team: Atlanta

Despise lack of size, a point guard with good quickness who is a productive shooter, even off the dribble.

2020/21 stats: 4.9 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 2.0 apg, 37.7 FG%, 31.1 3P%
Career earnings: $2,281,176
Agent: Aaron Turner

Trent Forrest / Restricted free agent / Last team: Utah

Completely lacks a three-point jumper but a stout point-of-attack defender who can get to the basket.

2020/21 stats: 2.9 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 1.5 apg, 45.1 FG%, 19.2 3P%
Career earnings: $470,690
Agent: Justin Haynes

Chasson Randle / Last team: Orlando

Quick point guard who can ocassionally provide scoring and playmaking.

Career earnings: $3,201,089
Agent: Darrell Comer

Javonte Green / Restricted free agent / Last team: Chicago

Explosive, freakish athlete on the wing who can throw down huge dunks in transition. Solid at jumping passing lanes for steals. Rest of his game isn’t as polished, though.

2020/21 stats: 3.6 ppg, 1.7 rpg, 0.4 apg, 52.0 FG%, 33.3 3P%
Career earnings: $2,416,291
Agent: David Gasman

Tremont Waters / Restricted free agent / Last team: Boston

Lacks in size but makes up for it in confidence and deep shooting ability. Able to fill up the scoring sheet at lower levels.

2020/21 stats: 3.8 ppg, 0.8 rpg, 2.4 apg, 40.5 FG%, 39.5 3P%
Career earnings: $791,846
