A number of high-profile players changed locations during the 2016 period of NBA free agency. Which of them will make the 2017 All-Star Game with their new team?
The 2016 period of NBA free agency has changed the Association in ways that we won’t truly understand until the current CBA expires. A lockout is impending, and the dramatic changes from this past summer could lead to major changes being demanded by the owners.
Before that madness ensues, however, one must acknowledge how significantly those changes will impact the NBA on the court.
Some of the biggest names in basketball have decided to change their addresses for the 2016-17 season. Some will fare better than others, however, as not every player has landed in a situation that will properly highlight their abilities.
For a select few, however, a change of address will lead to a return to the All-Star Game in 2017.
For some, a change of scenery was exactly what was needed to maximize their full potential. For others, the jersey doesn’t change a thing, as they were destined for greatness regardless of which team they signed with.
The question is, which players who changed teams in free agency are most likely to make the 2017 All-Star Game?
