The NBA market is open and a lot of teams have the opportunity to sign a player as a free agent.
James Harden: Harden has not looked his best thus far in Philadelphia. But if he decides to decline his player option and become one of the top NBA 2022 free agents, the 76ers would have no choice but to pay him what he wants. The Sixers made a big outlay sending Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummon and two first-round picks to Brooklyn and now they can not give up what they got. It is still an unknown if we will see the best Harden again, but he and Philadelphia seem doomed to understand each other in a possible free agency exit.
Bradley Beal: his last season has not been as good as the previous ones, but the context of the Washington Wizards had not helped him. Capable of averaging more than 30 points per game for two consecutive season, Beal has proven to be one of the most talented offensive players in the entire NBA. He enters 2022-2023 with just turned 29 years old and it is important for him to carefully measure the next steps of his career. Many will be the franchises interested in getting their services.
Kyrie Irving: judging solely by what he can do on the court, Kyrie Irving could be the number one on the list. However, the Nets guard has left enough reasons in recent months to think twice about hiring him. A player who leaves no one indifferent. His latest experiences say that it is not easy to fit into the locker room, but we cannot forget all his strictly sporting exploits. If he does not sign an extension with the Nets, he could become on of the best 2022 NBA free agents available.
Zach LaVine: without a doubt, one of the best free agents available. LaVine has earned the right to decide where he wants to play with his performances in recent seasons. Since joining the Bulls, Zach has proven to be one of the best players in the NBA. This year, in addition, it showed how it can be combined perfectly with another star like DeMar DeRozan. Chicago left great moments of play this course for which LaVine was directly responsible.
DeAndre Ayton: one of the soap operas of the last few months. The Suns opted not to offer their center a max this past summer and now it is time to check his market value. Ayton has proven to be a reliable center for both the regular season and the playoffs. However, if another franchise is willing to offer him a maximum contract, his future could move away from Phoenix. The future of the 2018 Draft number 1 will be decided in the coming days.
