Early Look Into 2017 NBA Free Agency

Blake Griffin

To win a championship in the NBA, you undoubtedly need to have a superstar or two on your roster. The Spurs are the only exception to this rule, as mostly every championship team over the past decade has acquired a major piece of their roster via free agency or the trade market. The Miami Heat obviously set this bar when they signed LeBron James and Chris Bosh, but they aren’t the first and won’t be the last. The Lakers signed Shaquille O’Neal, the Celtics traded for Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett, and of course the Warriors signed Kevin Durant this summer to create the super teams of all super teams. Warriors tickets are now a ticket to not only a basketball game, but basically an All-Star game. Teams will be trying to lure stars and big name players once again this offseason in hopes to better their chances of knocking off the Warriors and Cavaliers. Here’s a list of who will or could be hitting the free agent market this summer.
