Kawhi Leonard agreed to a three-year, $103 million deal to join the Clippers and DeMarcus Cousins finally found a new team after signing a one-year contract with the Lakers but there are still plenty of quality players available.

<p>A player to keep an eye on is Kenneth Faried, who produced at a high level for the Rockets, averaging 12.9 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 24.4 minutes over 25 games (13 starts) in the regular season but saw his playing time decrease significantly in the playoffs.</p><p>Faried averaged just 4.0 points and 3.5 rebounds in 9.3 minutes over six playoff games but he can be a valuable frontcourt piece for teams like <a href="" target="_blank">the Clippers</a>, Lakers, Celtics and 76ers.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;KENNETH.
