The Best Remaining NBA Free Agents

Despite plenty of big names being off the board there is still helpful contributors available. Here are the best remaining free agents.

Christian Wood / PF / Dallas Mavericks

Wood never found a consistent spot in the Mavericks rotation, bouncing between starting and coming off the bench. Surprisingly, he still put up solid numbers last season averaging 16.6 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 1.8 APG, 51.5% FG, 37.6% 3PT. He’s likely to sign the vet minimum with a team due to being a liability defensively and there have been rumours that he may sign with the Los Angeles Lakers who have one remaining spot on their roster.

PJ Washington / PF / Charlotte Hornets (Restricted)

PJ has shown flashes of strong play with the Hornets due to his ability to stretch the floor, finish around the rim, get out in transition and hold his own defensively. His stats were solid last season averaging 15.7 PPG, 4.9 RPG, 2.4 APG, 44.4% FG, 34.8% 3PT. It’s always tough to judge a player when they’re on a team struggling but Washington passes the eye test and would be an asset on any team.


Kelly Oubre Jr / SF / Charlotte Hornets

Oubre is as streaky a shooter as they come, he’s not reliable defensively but has the physical tools to be at least league average on that end. He had a massive role on offense last season due to injuries to LaMelo Ball, Gordon Hayward and the suspension of Miles Bridges that ultimately inflated his stats. The wing put up 20.3 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 1.1 APG, 43.1% FG, 31.9% 3PT. Expect Oubre to land with a contender but have a limited role off the bench.

Ayo Dosunmu / PG / Chicago Bulls (Restricted)

Coming off his sophomore season in the NBA, Ayo has showed signs of being a quality player with consistent two way ability. He was thrown into the spotlight halfway through his rookie season after Lonzo Ball went down with a knee injury. Dosunmu’s stats didn’t change much from his first to second year averaging 8.6 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 2.6 APG, 49.3% FG, 31.2% 3PT. While this may be concerning, it’s not easy to find your feet in a lineup with two dominant ball handlers in LaVine and DeRozan.

Terence Davis / SG / Sacramento Kings

Davis has been in the league for 5 years but has never been given much opportunity, averaging 16 MPG throughout his career. He could definitely fit on teams as a scoring minded guard who can provide instant offense off the bench. The acquisition of Kevin Huerter further buried Davis on the bench and a result averaged 6.7 PPG, 2.2 RPG, 1.0 APG, 42.3% FG, 36.6% 3PT. He’s a career 36.6% 3PT shooter and has shown value in situations where he is both on and off ball. Terence’s next team will be with whoever can offer him the most opportunity to get on the court.

All of these free agents would strongly benefit from joining a new team, and you should expect all of these guys to be signed in the near future.
