Just a couple of days following the season’s conclusion and still a week from an affectionate draft Rumors are heavily swirling as the trade market is expected to be the new cream of the crop, where the real fireworks escalate. Who that franchise is watching and who that pillar wants to play with hence the startling noise already being voiced or reported.

However, this summer’s free agent market is very intriguing. Appealingly impactful with some star pieces. Foundation-setters who could move the needle to significantly evolve the direction of a franchise, especially the contenders. In particular, the quarterbacks and ball-handlers at the point.

Led by some future Hall of Famers who have the microscope permanently glued to them due to distracting unreliability, self-inflicted wounds, or even an inability to perform at the once-accustomed level. Acknowledging their capabilities while questioning their future, maybe one of the most interesting topics this offseason is to see which direction their cloud of uncertainty will be guiding them. That is sort of what we are looking at when we talk about Kyrie Irving, James Harden, and Russell Westbrook. The beginning of the answer lies in their free agency decisions in the coming weeks.

Beyond the Hall of Fame tier, there is plenty of talent on both sides of the ball. Some point guards have takeover experience on top of an abundance of playoff years. With that in mind, let’s look at seven best point guards available this summer.
