With the start of 2019 NBA free agency only a day away, it’s time to take a look at all the big names and make a few bold predictions about what will unfold.
The NBA’s crazy season is almost upon us. With 2019 NBA free agency set to kick off at 6 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 30, the lay of the land couldn’t be more unpredictable.
While we’ve already speculated on where the top free agents of the summer will wind up, the truth is, things can change in an instant. Free agency is already unpredictable as it is, but with nearly half the league on the market, teams flush with cap space and such a talented crop of players available, this summer is going to be one wild thrill ride.
The number of players hitting free agency is absurd enough, but amount of elite talent at the top is downright bonkers. Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, Kemba Walker, Jimmy Butler, Tobias Harris, DeMarcus Cousins, Al Horford, D’Angelo Russell, Khris Middleton, Nikola Vucevic, J.J. Redick, Julius Randle … the list goes on and on, but suffice it to say, plenty of high-caliber NBA players will be fielding pitches as the madness unfolds.
The rumors and reports have been flying all over the place for weeks now, but with another day left to speculate, it’s time to make some bold predictions about the upcoming 2019 NBA free agency period. Some of them are more informed opinions, some of them are wild shots in the dark, and some are just gut feelings. Let’s dive into it.
