·22 min read

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.

Kawhi Leonard / SF / LA Clippers (Player Option)

Kawhi Leonard, Los Angeles Clippers
Kawhi Leonard, Los Angeles Clippers

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. 2019/20 stats: 27.1 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 4.9 apg, 0.6 bpg, 47.0 FG%, 37.8 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $34,379,100 Career earnings: $117,409,262

Chris Paul / PG / Phoenix (Player Option)

Chris Paul, Phoenix Suns
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? 2019/20 stats: 17.6 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 6.7 apg, 48.9 FG%, 36.5 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $41,358,814 Career earnings: $258,818,571 Agent: Steve Heumann

Blake Griffin / PF / Detroit

Blake Griffin, Detroit Pistons
Blake Griffin, Detroit Pistons

This season will define a lot for him as far as what his free agency will look like. If he can regain his 2018-19 All-NBA form, he'll get paid. If he has another injury-played campaign, though, his prospects won't be as rich. 2019/20 stats: 15.5 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 3.3 apg, 0.4 bpg, 35.2 FG%, 24.3 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $36,810,996 Career earnings: $192,126,655 Agent: Jeff Schwartz

Victor Oladipo / SG / Indiana

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? 2019/20 stats: 14.5 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 2.9 apg, 39.4 FG%, 31.7 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $21,000,000 Career earnings: $84,487,440 Agent: -

Jrue Holiday / PG / Milwaukee (Player Option)

Jrue Holiday, Milwaukee Bucks
Jrue Holiday, Milwaukee Bucks

Considered one of the best defensive guards in the NBA by many players, he can also run an offense like a true floor general and provide nearly 20 points per night. An all-around lead guard. 2019/20 stats: 19.1 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 6.7 apg, 45.5 FG%, 35.3 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $25,876,111 Career earnings: $130,017,380 Agent: Jason Glushon

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. 2019/20 stats: 19.4 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 7.5 apg, 41.6 FG%, 35.2 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $30,500,000 Career earnings: $159,657,917 Agent: Mark Bartelstein

Andre Drummond / C / Cleveland

Andre Drummond, Cleveland Cavaliers
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. 2019/20 stats: 17.7 ppg, 15.2 rpg, 2.7 apg, 1.4 bpg, 53.3 FG%, 14.3 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $28,751,774 Career earnings: $109,078,706 Agent: Jeff Schwartz

John Collins / PF / Atlanta (Restricted)

John Collins, Atlanta Hawks
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. 2019/20 stats: 21.6 ppg, 10.1 rpg, 1.5 apg, 1.6 bpg, 58.3 FG%, 40.1 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $4,137,302 Career earnings: $6,922,560 Agent: Jeff Schwartz

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. 2019/20 stats: 20.6 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 6.8 apg, 41.5 FG%, 30.8 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $11,454,048 Career earnings: $16,057,728 Agent: Raymond Brothers

Dennis Schroeder / PG / LA Lakers

Dennis Schroeder, Los Angeles Lakers
Dennis Schroeder, Los Angeles Lakers

One of the best bench contributors in the league last season, he really improved his free-agent stock with the Thunder. Will his efficiency remain that consistent in Los Angeles? 2019/20 stats: 18.9 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 4.0 apg, 46.9 FG%, 38.5 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $15,500,000 Career earnings: $54,280,502 Agent: Alex Saratsis

DeMar DeRozan / SG / San Antonio Spurs

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. 2019/20 stats: 22.1 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 5.6 apg, 53.1 FG%, 25.7 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $27,739,975 Career earnings: $148,965,795 Agent: Aaron Goodwin

Mike Conley / PG / Utah

Mike Conley handling the ball
Mike Conley handling the ball

His fit with the Jazz was not perfect, but he's still 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. 2019/20 stats: 14.4 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 4.4 apg, 40.9 FG%, 37.5 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $34,502,130 Career earnings: $174,039,464 Agent: Mike Conley Sr.

Montrezl Harrell / PF / LA Lakers (Player Option)

Montrezl Harrell, Los Angeles Lakers

His paint defense, however, needs to improve, as he hasn't offered much resistance on that end throughout his career. 2019/20 stats: 18.6 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 1.7 apg, 58.0 FG% 2020/21 earnings: $9,258,000 Career earnings: $15,516,382 Agent: Rich Paul

Lauri Markkanen / PF / Chicago (Restricted)

Hassan Whiteside / C / Sacramento

Can post double-doubles with ease and one of the best statistical shot-blockers in recent league history.

Jabari Parker / PF / Sacramento

A once-promising career that was seemingly derailed by multiple major knee injuries.

Kelly Olynyk / C / Miami

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. 2019/20 stats: 8.2 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 1.7 apg, 46.2 FG%, 40.6 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $13,598,243 Career earnings: $47,533,874 Agent: Greg Lawrence

Bobby Portis / PF / Milwaukee (Player Option)

Solid scorer and three-point shooter for a frontcourt player, but he'll have to improve his defense this season to prove he's not a one-dimensional player. 2019/20 stats: 10.1 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 1.5 apg, 45.0 FG%, 35.8 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $3,623,000 Career earnings: $21,759,386 Agent: Mark Bartelstein

Nerlens Noel / PF / New York

High-energy big man who likes to attack the offensive glass and defends the paint well. He's effective in a small role, but if he's to land a big contract next offseason, he'll have to show he can do it 30 minutes per night. 2019/20 stats: 7.4 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 0.9 apg, 68.4 FG% 2020/21 earnings: $5,000,000 Career earnings: $22,157,625

Rodney Hood / SF / Portland (Team Option)

Smooth scoring wing with great size and shiftiness. Can get buckets from all three levels.

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. 2019/20 stats: 7.5 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 1.1 bpg, 72.9 FG% 2020/21 earnings: $2,564,753 Career earnings: $240,631,905 Agent: Charles Briscoe

Carmelo Anthony / SF / Portland

A future Hall-of-Famer, his acceptance to take more of a backseat this past season helped extend his career and turn him into of the most productive role players in the league.

Veteran wing who fits the 3-and-D archetype to a T. Still a solid defender and three-point shooter in his mid-30s. 2019/20 stats: 8.0 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 1.7 apg, 43.8 FG%, 37.2 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $12,800,000 Career earnings: $103,520,528 Agent: Steve Heumann

Kent Bazemore / SG / Golden State

Bouncy swingman with a streaky three-point stroke. Capable multi-positional defender. 2019/20 stats: 8.8 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 1.4 apg, 37.5 FG%, 34.4 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $2,320,044 Career earnings: $75,235,799 Agent: Austin Walton

Malik Monk / SG / Charlotte (Restricted)

Malik Monk, Charlotte Hornets
Malik Monk, Charlotte Hornets

Has not lived up to his pre-draft billing whatsoever. Poor outside shooter, bad shot selection, little defensive impact. 2019/20 stats: 10.3 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 2.1 apg, 43.4 FG%, 28.4 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $5,345,687 Career earnings: $10,380,360 Agent: Jeff Schwartz

Otto Porter / SF / Chicago

Needs to bounce back after a rough 2019-20 season, but has proven to be an elite outside shooter in his career. He can also do some scoring off the dribble, too. 2019/20 stats: 11.9 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 1.8 apg, 44.3 FG%, 38.7 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $28,489,239 Career earnings: $97,341,160 Agent: David Falk

Ishmael Smith / PG / Washington

Experienced floor general who possesses elite quickness and has improved his three-point shooting greatly. Great in a reserve role. 2019/20 stats: 10.9 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 4.9 apg, 44.7 FG%, 36.7 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $6,000,000 Career earnings: $30,022,075 Agent: Andrew Morrison

Nemanja Bjelica / PF / Sacramento

Prototypical modern big man in that he spaces the floor from three at a high level. Has a decent post-up game too when attacking mismatches. 2019/20 stats: 11.5 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 2.8 apg, 48.1 FG%, 41.9 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $7,150,000 Career earnings: $25,025,000 Agent: Jason Ranne

Boban Marjanovic / C / Dallas

Boban Marjanovic, Dallas Mavericks
Boban Marjanovic, Dallas Mavericks

One of the most likable players in the league due to his gargantuan size and friendly demeanor. A tough big man who sets bruising screens and can finish well around the paint. Mostly a 15-minute-per-game piece. 2019/20 stats: 6.6 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 0.5 apg, 57.3 FG% 2020/21 earnings: $3,500,000 Career earnings: $25,700,000 Agent: Mike Lindeman

Zach Collins / C / Portland (Restricted)

Up-and-down career thus far due to consistent injury troubles, but has shown he can shoot the ball a bit and play with high intensity when does see the floor. 2019/20 stats: 7.0 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 1.5 apg, 47.1 FG%, 36.8 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $5,406,255 Career earnings: $10,926,360 Agent: Mark Bartelstein

Kevon Looney / F / Golden State (Player option)

A Steve Kerr favorite, he has solid hands and can finish tidily around the rim. Does his job and stays within his role. 2019/20 stats: 3.4 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 1.0 apg, 36.7 FG% 2020/21 earnings: $4,821,429 Career earnings: $9,817,475 Agent: Aaron Goodwin

Ben McLemore / SG / Houston

After a slow start to his career, he has really come along lately, turning into a solid defensive player and a very solid three-point shooter. 2019/20 stats: 10.1 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 0.8 apg, 44.4 FG%, 40.0 3P% 2020/21 earnings: $2,283,034 Career earnings: $25,776,316 Agent: Andrew Morrison
