A lot of people are paying close attention to the Top Tier FA's but aren't paying attention to the numerous young talent that will be available this summer.

It seems like every year there is a Free Agent signing that goes on to produce much better than expected on his new team.

In 2009 that guy ended up becoming Trevor Ariza. He went from a role player in Los Angeles into becoming a starter with a career season in Houston. Who knew Ariza would nearly average a triple double in several games?


I think the guy people are sleeping on this year a little too heavily is Ronnie Brewer. If he goes to the right situation to a team that needs him at the 2 or 3 he could excel there. He already is one of the better perimeter defenders in the NBA, and he matches that on offense with his unique size, strength, & athleticism. He can get to the basket and finish, and has improved his mid range game since coming into the NBA. He also can handle the ball in a Point Forward manner similar to what he did at Arkansas where he basically was a Point Forward. If he improves his shooting by fixing his Slip 'n Slide injury release point he could really take off as a player.

Tyrus Thomas (free agent) could be very good in an up tempo system.

Aren't Rudy Gay and Michael Redd free agents? Haven't heard much about them but they'd be great pickups.

Rudy Gay is a FA.

Redd has 1 more highly paid year left.

Rudy Gay and LeBron James aren't exactly under the rader free agents.

David Lee on the other hand, could easliy average twenty and ten on a **** team. Like how he did with the Knicks. However, he wouldn't do much on a playoff team. In my opinion, David Lee was a product of the Knicks' up tempo, no defense system.

Both Tyrus Thomas and David Lee have flown surprisingly under the radar and I feel both can make a huge impact on their teams.
