As the NBA Draft has concluded, and the Orlando Magic selected Paolo Banchero with the first overall pick, all eyes are now focused on the NBA Free Agency period which begins on June 30th. Several high-profile names may be available, including Kyrie Irving, Bradley Beal, and James Harden.

With several NBA teams preparing to open their checkbooks and manipulate the salary cap, we’ve compiled a list of the top 50 NBA free agents for this summer.

20. Kevon Looney, C, Golden State Warriors (15.7 Player Efficiency Rating)

Having fallen out of the Warriors’ rotation for a period of time, Looney chose a good year to help raise his stock. For the Warriors, Looney started 80 games and posted his highest player efficiency rating since the 2019 season.

19. Chris Boucher, F, Toronto Raptors (17.9 PER)

A lot of people may be surprised to learn that Boucher will turn 30 during the 2023 NBA season. Though he does not feel that old, he entered the NBA at the age of 25. Boucher can block shots and knock down three pointers, and at this point in his career, you should not expect much more from him.

18. Kyle Anderson, F, Memphis Grizzlies (14.4 PER)

While Anderson is unlikely to score a lot of points, he does a lot of good things on the basketball court and is still relatively young at 28 years of age. Anderson is a good defensive player who can create shots for others and rebound well for his position.

17. Tyus Jones, G, Memphis Grizzlies (16.5 PER)

Jones had his most efficient season as an NBA player last season, posting a PER of 16.5. Jones is an intriguing free agent candidate because he is significantly better than your average backup point guard but not quite good enough to start. It will be interesting to see what type of contract he is offered. 

16. Victor Oladipo, G, Miami Heat (16.8 PER)

Oladipo has been hampered by injuries since appearing at back-to-back NBA All-Star games with the Indiana Pacers in 2018 and 2019. Regardless of his prior health issues, someone is going to take a chance on him and they might strike gold.

15. Malik Monk, G, Los Angeles Lakers (14.4 PER)

Monk was virtually written off in Charlotte when he was playing for the Hornets, but has completely revitalized his career this season with the Lakers. Several times this season, you could turn on a Lakers game and Monk would be their best player. Monk averaged 2.3 made three-pointers per game last season and is expected to command a healthy salary this year. 

14. Collin Sexton, G, Cleveland Cavaliers (11.2 PER, Restricted Free Agent)

I am not as enthusiastic about Sexton as others might be in this free-agent class. He is not a quality defender, and his efficiency numbers are lower than what you might expect from a top-tier free agent. It is easy to get blinded by Sexton’s 24.3 points per game average in 2021, but I do not think he is worth the salary he is expected to receive.

13. Mitchell Robinson, C, New York Knicks (20.7 PER)

Robinson possesses the skill set that is coveted at the center position in today’s game. Robinson can rebound, rim run and defend the paint with his shot blocking ability. The 24-year-old Robinson will garner a lot of attention on the open market. 

12. Mohamed Bamba, C, Orlando Magic (16.5 PER, RFA)

The Magic considered trading Bamba at the trade deadline but ultimately decided to keep him. With the addition of his three-point shot, Bamba has become a very intriguing player in the NBA. Since he is only 24 years old, someone is likely to offer him a nice contract and I do not believe the Magic will match it.

11. Bobby Portis, F, Milwaukee Bucks (17.7 PER, Player Option)

Portis, who was a fan favorite on the Bucks’ championship team in 2021, has already given the Bucks one hometown discount, and I don’t expect him to do that again. Portis is coming off a season in which he averaged a career high in points per game (14.6) and rebounds per game (9.1).
