https://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/2018-nba-free-agency-rankings-clint-capela-marcus-smart-isaiah-thomas-best-remaining-on-thin-market/

the main list from the article...I have shown the unsigned players in Bold


TOP 50 NBA FREE AGENTS FOR 2018

1 LeBron James
CLEVELAND CAVALIERS SF
Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Los Angeles Lakers

The Decision 3.0 has come and gone, and LeBron is taking his talents to Los Angeles. Now we'll see who will join him.

2 Kevin Durant
GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS SF
Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Warriors

K.D. declined his player option (gasp), but quickly agreed to return to the Warriors, who will once again be favored to win the NBA title.

3 Paul George
OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER SF
Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Thunder

George has been the surprise of the offseason thus far, spurning the Lakers to return to Russell Westbrook and the Thunder long-term.

4 Nikola Jokic
DENVER NUGGETS C
Update: Agreed to five-year deal with Nuggets

Jokic technically became a restricted free agent when Denver declined his option, but he quickly locked up a five-year, $148 million max contract to stay with the Nuggets.

5 Chris Paul
HOUSTON ROCKETS PG
Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Rockets

Paul and the Rockets wasted no time hammering out a four-year max deal to keep Houston as Golden State's top challenger ... for now.

6 Clint Capela
HOUSTON ROCKETS C
Free agent type: Restricted

This time two years ago, who would have thought that Capela would be one of the most coveted free agents of 2018? He's an ideal big man for the modern NBA, and showed that he can stay on the court with anyone during the playoffs because of his defensive quickness and shot-blocking ability. The Rockets surely want to retain him, but they might not be able to match if another team throws a max offer his way.

7 DeMarcus Cousins
NEW ORLEANS PELICANS C
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Warriors

Uh, that was a surprise. Cousins shocked the world by adding his talents to the already-loaded Golden State roster, and now things just don't seem fair.

8 DeAndre Jordan
LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS C
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Mavericks

No hostage situation necessary this time around. Jordan will finally get his chance to suit up for the Mavs after quickly agreeing to a contract.

9 Aaron Gordon
ORLANDO MAGIC PF
Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Magic

Gordon skipped that whole restricted free agency thing and just elected to re-sign with the Magic, who were happy to oblige.

10 Julius Randle
LOS ANGELES LAKERS PF
Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Pelicans

Randle was renounced by the Lakers and quickly found his new home in New Orleans. Anthony Davis was reportedly quite active in his recruitment.

11 Marcus Smart
BOSTON CELTICS PG
Free agent type: Restricted

There's no denying the impact that Smart has made on the Celtics over the course of his career, but how much are they willing to pay for him? Smart has said he thinks he's worth more than $12-14 million, which may be too steep a price for Danny Ainge and the Celtics. What value will there be for a rugged defender with intangibles through the roof, but also one of the worst shooters in NBA history? We're about to find out.

12 JJ Redick
PHILADELPHIA 76ERS SG
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with 76ers

Redick played a key part in the Sixers' success last season, so Philly acted quickly to bring him back.

13 Trevor Ariza
HOUSTON ROCKETS SG
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Suns

The Rockets received a tough blow when Ariza decided to sign with a young Phoenix squad. It was a surprising move from the veteran wing.

14 Derrick Favors
UTAH JAZZ PF
Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Jazz

Favors re-upped with the Jazz, as they look to duplicate the success they had last season.

15 Isaiah Thomas
LOS ANGELES LAKERS PG
Free agent type: Unrestricted

How far Thomas has fallen. It wasn't long ago that he was talking about bringing out the Brinks truck to pay him this summer. Instead the market has dwindled for the 5-9 guard who was hampered by injuries all of last season. Thomas averaged nearly 30 points per game two seasons ago for Boston, so a team could get some high value if Thomas is able to get healthy and return to his old form.

16 Tyreke Evans
MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES PG
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Pacers

Evans was a hot commodity as a scoring guard who can play point or off the ball, and the Pacers swooped him up with a $12 million offer.

17 Jabari Parker
MILWAUKEE BUCKS PF
Free agent type: Restricted

Parker has missed basically two whole seasons due to two ACL tears in his left knee, but he's shown an ability to put the ball in the basket when he's been on the court. The former No. 2 overall pick has extended his range to the 3-point line, and could be a playmaking stretch-four if he can remain healthy.

18 Jusuf Nurkic
PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS C
Free agent type: Restricted

Nurkic set the world on fire when he came over to Portland at the trade deadline two seasons ago, but last year can only be characterized as a disappointment for the 7-footer. He can still defend and has his moments offensively, but the market has waned for Nurkic given his slow foot speed in the modern NBA.

19 Zach LaVine
CHICAGO BULLS PG
Free agent type: Restricted

One of the highest fliers in the league before his ACL injury, LaVine had trouble finding a groove in 24 games for the Bulls last season. If healthy, LaVine has the potential to be one of the most dynamic scorers in the league, but a lack of efficiency and a poor defensive reputation could hurt him during free agency.

20 Will Barton
DENVER NUGGETS SF
Update: Agreed to four-year deal with Nuggets

The Nuggets wasted no time re-signing Barton, a key member of their reserve unit.

21 Fred VanVleet
TORONTO RAPTORS PG
Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Raptors

VanVleet made a great impression with Toronto last season, and they rewarded him with a mutli-year contract.

22 Luc Mbah a Moute
HOUSTON ROCKETS SF
Free agent type: Unrestricted

Mbah a Moute's defense was a main component of the Rockets' assault on the NBA last season, but shoulder injuries limited him toward the end of the season and into the playoffs. He is the ideal modern NBA defender, able to guard all five positions -- a fact that won't be lost on teams looking for wing depth.

23 Avery Bradley
LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS SG
Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Clippers

Despite an injury, the Clippers apparently saw enough of Bradley last season to fork over $25 million for two years.

24 Rajon Rondo
NEW ORLEANS PELICANS PG
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Lakers

Rondo agreed to join LeBron James in Los Angeles, and joins an increasingly strange Lakers roster. We'll see how things end up.

25 Wayne Ellington
MIAMI HEAT SG
Free agent type: Unrestricted

Ellington probably wouldn't be as high on this list in any previous season, but he's hitting the market as the value of shooters is at an all-time high. Ellington averaged a career-high 11.2 points last season for Miami while shooting 39 percent on 3-pointers. He'll have plenty of suitors.

26 Brook Lopez
LOS ANGELES LAKERS C
Free agent type: Unrestricted

Lopez has adapted as much as he can to the modern game by stretching his range out well past the 3-point line. He has low mobility and rebounds even less than he used to, but there's always room in the league for a 7-footer who can knock down 3s.

27 Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
LOS ANGELES LAKERS SG
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Lakers

Shortly after LeBron's decision was announced, KCP agreed to return to the Lake Show.

28 Rudy Gay
SAN ANTONIO SPURS SF
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Spurs

Gay opted out of his contract with San Antonio, but agreed on a new deal shortly after free agency began.

29 Rodney Hood
CLEVELAND CAVALIERS SG
Free agent type: Restricted

Hood's free agent stock took a hit when he was buried on the bench for the Cavs' NBA Finals run this season, but the upside is still there. At 6-8, Hood can shoot and has the defensive tools to improve on that end. Despite his recent struggles, at least one team will likely throw a decent offer at him.

30 Joe Harris
BROOKLYN NETS SF
Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Nets

Harris re-upped with the Nets just after the free agency bell rang on Sunday morning.

31 Montrezl Harrell
LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS PF
Free agent type: Restricted

Harrell showed much more of a scoring touch last season than he'd previously displayed in his NBA career. Combine that with his energy on both ends of the court, and the undersized big man could get some strong offers.

32 Dante Exum
UTAH JAZZ PG
Update: Agreed to three-year deal with Jazz

Exum is still full of potential, and the Jazz want to see it play out.

33 Elfrid Payton
PHOENIX SUNS PG
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Pelicans

Payton will return to his native New Orleans after agreeing to a one-year deal with the Pels.

34 Greg Monroe
BOSTON CELTICS C
Free agent type: Unrestricted

Monroe got a third chance in Boston last season after falling out of the rotation in both Milwaukee and Phoenix. He showed that he can still be an effective post scorer off the bench, but what's that worth in the 2018 free agent market? We're about to find out.

35 Nerlens Noel
DALLAS MAVERICKS C
Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Thunder

The Thunder are taking a wise gamble on Noel, a talented big man who's coming off a rough season. OKC isn't risking much as this deal includes a player option in the second year.

36 Kyle Anderson
SAN ANTONIO SPURS SF
Free agent type: Restricted

A highly skilled 6-8 wing, Anderson flourished with Kawhi Leonard out of the Spurs lineup for the majority of last season. His game is perfectly suited for San Antonio's system, so it will be interesting to see if other teams send offers his way.

37 Dirk Nowitzki
DALLAS MAVERICKS PF
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Mavericks

It came as a surprise to no one, but Nowitzki quickly agreed to terms with the Mavs. He'll play his 21st straight season in a Dallas uniform next season.

38 Ersan Ilyasova
PHILADELPHIA 76ERS SF
Update: Agreed to three-year deal with Bucks

Ilyasova has been a journeyman over the past few seasons, but he hopes to find a home in Milwaukee ... where he spent the first seven seasons of his career.

39 Aron Baynes
BOSTON CELTICS C
Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Celtics

Baynes proved to be a crucial part of Boston's success last season, so it was no surprise that they jumped at the chance to bring him back.

40 Michael Beasley
NEW YORK KNICKS PF
Free agent type: Unrestricted

The walking bucket will undoubtedly find a spot on a roster this offseason. There's always room for a player who can put the ball in the basket, and the 6-9, 29-year-old is also a solid rebounder.

41 Dwyane Wade
MIAMI HEAT SG
Free agent type: Unrestricted

Wade's days of jumping from city to city are probably over, so the Heat likely have the inside track on his free agency. But you never know what can happen if LeBron comes calling.

42 Ed Davis
PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS PF
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Nets

Davis is a great role player, and he'll try to fit in with Brooklyn's up-and-coming roster next season.

43 Jeff Green
CLEVELAND CAVALIERS PF
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Wizards

Green ended up playing a key role in the Cavs' run to the Finals, and he'll try to do the same for the Wizards in their potential playoff run next season.

44 Amir Johnson
PHILADELPHIA 76ERS SF
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with 76ers

Johnson is a great chemistry guy and does the dirty work on both ends of the floor. The Sixers are glad to have him back.

45 Jerami Grant
OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER SF
Update: Agreed to three-year deal with Thunder

Grant's decision didn't get as much fanfare as Paul George's but he'll play a big role for the Thunder next season.

46 Marco Belinelli
PHILADELPHIA 76ERS SG
Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Spurs

Belinelli had two of his best NBA seasons with San Antonio, and he'll try to rekindle the magic on his latest deal.

47 Shabazz Napier
PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS PG
Free agent type: Unrestricted

Backing up Damian Lillard for most of the season, Napier showed strong playmaking and scoring ability as he doubled his career highs in both points and minutes per game. He'll make a solid backup for another team if the Blazers choose not to bring him back.

48 Nemanja Bjelica
MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES PF
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with 76ers

The Sixers lost one stretch-four in Ersan Ilyasova, but quickly pounced on another one in Bjelica.

49 Seth Curry
DALLAS MAVERICKS SG
Update: Agreed to two-year deal with Trail Blazers

Curry missed all of last season with a leg injury, but is a knock-down shooter capable of playing both guard positions. He should help the Blazers bench.

50 Mario Hezonja
ORLANDO MAGIC SF
Update: Agreed to one-year deal with Knicks

Hezonja was the No. 5 overall pick a few years ago, and the Knicks are hoping he can fulfill some of that potential.

51 Doug McDermott
DALLAS MAVERICKS SF
Update: Agreed to three-year deal with Pacers

Dougie McBuckets will attempt to stretch the floor for Indiana, who took the Cavs to the brink of elimination in the first round of last season's playoffs.

Spurs getting squeezed. Hope this doesn't happen to us with Smart.

Boston can pay Smart anything they want. They have no limits on matching any deal ,except what the owners are willing to pay.

I guess Levin and Kyle Anderson are off the market since both have offers on the table.

The green room is just about empty. I cannot fathom him not getting at least a full MLE offer. The longer this goes on, the deeper Danny is likely to dig in his heels. The apparent lack of interest solidifies Danny's low ball offer. I think the Kings could however emerge as a player. They need a defensive minded PG and Smart would fill that role for them.

when has Danny given Smart a low ball offer?

he has a QO, which is determined by his playing time in previous seasons I think.

Maybe Danny offered him a n extension last year I can't remember. I assumed so and that was where Smart got the "I;m worth more than $12-14 M per year" statement. But I'm not sure.

there are no signs I've seen where Danny is trying to Low ball Smart, just letting the market set his level first.

They'd match. Probably then stretch Nader. Go into the season with 14, using Bird and Allen on 2 Way contracts in games if needed, then use 10 day contracts once available in January, and eventually a free agent or buy out candidate to finish the year, keeping us under the tax.

Josh Robbins: The Orlando Magic and Isaiah Thomas never were negotiating a possible contract. Is it correct to say the Magic explored the possibility of signing Thomas? Yes. But there were no negotiations. The addition of Jerian Grant indicates Orlando had decided not to ultimately pursue IT. – via Twitter JoshuaBRobbins

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

interesting, it sounded like it was a done deal almost.


let me start the "bring IT home" rant.

I wish we could bring IT "home". He deserves too much money and would prefer to start. The world has moved on.

Although I liked IT's performance when in Boston, I am not sure that he would fit in with the current roster.

First, he would not be a starter, second he will not get paid anything like what he wanted when with the Cs before and third, he may not even be healthy enough to be able to repeat playing at the high level that he showed in Boston before getting traded even with reduced minutes.

Since he has become all too vocal regarding his personal needs and wants (playing time, salary, etc) I doubt that he could be happy in Boston again. I just cannot see him coming in and taking the "glad to be here" guy, and he may just continuously whine and complain and complain some more. Having unhappy bench players is never a good thing for any team in any sport.

IT is in a difficult situation.

He may need to hop on a one year prove it to me deal where he will have a chance to prove he can still play.

At the same time his prospects to land a starting job are not good.  IT has had to endure a lot of things over the past year.  I truly wish him all the best and I hope some team gives him a contract.

One thing that is still unknown is his health.  Is he fully recovered from the hip injury?  Wonder if the Kings could find some room for him.

At this point the Kings are a destination for all unsigned FA.  Lol

What about Nick Young? I think he was top 50

I couldn't find Young on the list from the link above.

but I missed that Nemanja Bjelica had backed out of his deal with Philly and now may be negotiating with teams overseas or I think I read the Kings.

I read that Nemanja Bjelica wanted more money and more seasons than Philly offered. He can get both closer to home, so Philly had no leverage. Maybe the Kings will provide a better offer.
