ROI – Reviewing and rating current NBA Free Agents
There’s a tonne of information on-line right now but this one, courtesy of John Schuhmman, is as sound and concise as any:
Position-by-position: Top 5 free agents
As we’ve seen in the NBA Draft over the years, the best strategy is usually to take the best player available. You never know how draft picks will turn out, so selecting the guy closest to a sure thing, even if you’ve already got a similar player on your roster, is often the prudent way to go.
In free agency, though, teams pretty much know what kind of player they’re getting. Teams have seen what these guys can do and are able to better evaluate what they’re capable of and what they can bring to their team.
So the next few weeks will be about finding the right fit, both on the court and on the payroll.
By position, the following players are under-rated [#, indicates where they should be ranked] in this year’s Free Agent class, according to yours truly:
* Ramon Sessions [#1]
