Early NBA free agency rankings: LeBron James leads list of top 30 players who could potentially hit market



Player option
There are no indications that LeBron James wants to leave Los Angeles (and decline his $51 million player option for next season), but if he desires a change of scenery he’ll immediately become the top free agent on the market. Still the face of the NBA, James will turn 40 years old next season but is still performing at an All-NBA level, and he would immediately turn almost any team into a championship contender.2

Player option
After the Clippers locked up Kawhi Leonard, an extension for Paul George was expected to be the next order of business. Here we are with the season almost finished, and the fact that no deal has been reached has raised some alarm bells. George is one of the best two-way players in the league, with the size and skill set to fit into any roster. If he hits the market, the offers will be robust.3
