Now that NBA free agency is upon us, you can expect to see a lot of changes within the league.
There could be quite a few names bouncing all over the country, heading from one team to another as the offseason really starts heating up.
While there will be players from every draft class in the mix, it seems that 2018’s group is getting the most attention.

A lot of 2018 draft picks could be making moves once free agency starts.
This is one talented class so you can’t blame teams for attempting to sign these players.
Where will each of them land and who is the biggest catch?
On The Move
Right now all eyes are on Ayton and Brunson, who are definitely the two players in this group getting the most attention right now.
Most people assume that Brunson will take an eye-popping deal from the New York Knicks, even as the Dallas Mavericks plead their case and attempt to keep him in Texas.
Meanwhile, Ayton’s future is a bit murkier: he is seemingly unhappy in Phoenix with the Suns, especially after they refused to give him a max contract extension last year.
However, he may very well end up back with Monty Williams‘ squad once again next season.
But another team may make an offer that Ayton can’t refuse: there are many teams in the league that would be happy with Ayton leading their front court.
We don’t have a crystal ball but it’s safe to assume a few 2018 rookies are about to buy some new real estate.
