NBA rumors: Pre-2017 NBA Free Agency rumor roundup

NBA free agency: Top 25 players available

Despite having great bench players, the#Cleveland Cavaliers didn't exactly have a very productive bench, especially not in the playoffs.#LeBron James had to carry most of the load, and as a consequence, the Cavaliers were beaten in the NBA Finals once again. Those same pressures could apply even more strongly for Nerlens Noel, who Dallas acquired at the trade deadline, due to the oversaturation of centers in the league at the moment. At the end of the day, the NBA is a business, and is not concerned if the Celtics trade their future 900 first round picks for Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins.

Golden State already boasts two of the best shooters of all-time, not to mention Kevin Durant, so just imagine throwing Redick into the mix along with Draymond Green.

Guys like Steph Curry and Jrue Holiday are expected to sign new contracts with their teams once free agency starts, so no drama there.

The Pacers seem to be in little hurry to move George, but their franchise is somewhat hamstrung until his situation is resolved.

Maybe the 2018 offseason will be a quiet one.

The point is, player movement among mega stars is real in the NBA and minimal in the NHL.

Technically, George could renegotiate and extend his current contract with Indiana and then be traded to Boston. Lebron James has typically been able to easily get his way and have management make a move here or there to improve his team and improve his chances at competing for an NBA championship.

Off season headlines spark passion, controversy, and considerable debate. There's some speculation the recent Chris Paul trade might actually raise the odds of Griffin staying with the Los Angeles Clippers; they are reportedly focused on keeping Griffin after losing their other top player. The Celtics figure to be involved, and if the Oklahoma City Thunder want another star to pair with Russell Westbrook, they could look into bringing Griffin back to his hometown.

He nearly doubled his salary from the previous season ($850,000 for 2016-17) even though he was a healthy scratch in the Caps' last six playoff games against Pittsburgh. The combo guard joins last year's No. 1 pick Ben Simmons and 2014 No. 3 pick Joel Embiid, forming the youngest super team with lots of upside.

Sacramento, Philadelphia and Denver (if they lose Danilo Gallinari and do not sign a big ticket free agent in the first week of July) could make sense, but that is an awfully narrow group that could each move in other directions depending on the opportunities presented in the first week of July.

The Prince George Spruce Kings have a far more balanced schedule in 2017-18 compared to the previous year. His nine points and seven boards per game aren't increasing much more over the course of his next contract. The answer better be a resonding no but this is Toronto and sometimes you never know with them. With enough cap space to sign a superstar, the Celtics will have a shot at every player looking for a new home. Butler and Thibs reunited in one of the most talented young teams. The only thing that could limit his trade market is if a team is informed that Jordan will opt out of his contract and leave after next season. He'll need to get paid this offseason, clearly. Another rotation-level big man would be a good pickup as well, since it would just be Horford, Olynyk, and a bunch of kids, plus a few wings masquerading as a 4.
