The NBA season may have ended June 12 when the Warriors won the NBA Finals against the Cavaliers in a quick five games, but the real season is just beginning. The real season is the NBA offseason.

Teams can only officially (“officially”) talk to players they’d like to add to their roster July 1, but the rumors start making their way through the league and onto the Internet long before that date.

Last year’s free agency was centered around whether Kevin Durant would stay with Russell Westbrook or bolt for the Bay Area. This summer, on the other hand, has a wider variety of players that can make moves and create the chaos NBA fans long to see. While Durant is again a free agent, it’s known he plans to re-sign with Golden State, so we can’t expect much drama there.

Things we could see this summer? Gordon Hayward could leave Utah or Kyle Lowry could walk away from his best friend DeMar DeRozan and the Toronto Raptors. We’ve already seen Chris Paul, who would have been the big fish on the market, engineer a trade to the Houston Rockets. Then we were blindsided when Paul George, who is not a free agent, was traded by the Pacers to join Westbrook in Oklahoma City.

For a list of the Top 50 free agents available, look here.
