We’re not even two full weeks into the NBA’s free-agent period, but the list of noteworthy unsigned players has dwindled in a major way since the evening of June 30.

Two names on our list of the year’s 50 best free agents don’t have a formal agreement in place, and that’s only because deals they initially agreed upon are now in jeopardy.

Marcus Morris, who initially appeared headed to San Antonio on a two-year contract, is re-evaluating his options and is said to be mulling an offer from the Knicks. New York was able to gain the flexibility to make that offer to Morris because the team’s two-year deal with Reggie Bullock has to be re-worked due to an issue that arose during Bullock’s physical.

With NBA free agency winding down , we look at the 10 best free agents still on the market and give you our We also cover the unrestricted free agents remaining such as Isaiah Thomas, Brook Lopez, and All 3 of them are competent scorers and may be the last missing piece to a team’s title run .

Besides Morris and Bullock, the rest of our top 50 free agents are off the board. So are most of the names we designated as “honorable mention” on that list — swingman Justin Holiday and stretch four Trey Lyles are the only players in that group who have yet to secure deals.

Still, there are a handful of intriguing names out there for teams still scouring the open market for potential bargains. Here’s a quick look at some of those free agents:

Point guards

In addition to veteran journeymen such as Jose Calderon, Devin Harris, Raymond Felton and Jeremy Lin, the list of remaining point guards includes former lottery picks such as Trey Burke and Cameron Payne, and young players like Frank Mason, Isaiah Briscoe, and Shaquille Harrison. Jerian Grant and Shelvin Mack are among the other free agents who saw regular minutes as backups last season.

NBA sets salary cap at just over $109 million, up $7 million

NBA sets salary cap at just over $109 million, up $7 million The NBA set the salary cap for the 2019-20 season at $109.14 million, a raise of just over $7 million from last season. The tax level will be $132,627,000 and the minimum salary, which is 90 percent of the cap, is $98,226,000. All of those figures are virtually identical to what the league has been projecting for some time. All the new figures take effect Monday. Teams may begin negotiating with free agents on Sunday at 6 p.m. Eastern, and then the league's annual moratorium begins at 12:01 a.m. on July 1 and continues through noon on July 6. When the moratorium ends, new deals can be signed.

There are still plenty of NBA Free Agents still waiting to find a team for the new NBA season. We go over 3 vets still on the market including Greg Monroe, Jamal Crawford, and Dwyane Wade and break down their most likely landing spots for next season.

The most appealing target on the point guard market may be one who is not technically a free agent yet — Shaun Livingston is expected to clear waivers on Friday.

Wings

Bullock and Holiday are probably the most notable veterans in this group, but Kyle Korver isn’t far behind. At age 38, he doesn’t contribute much more than three-point shooting, but his outside stroke remains deadly.

Jamal Crawford, Ian Clark, David Nwaba, Iman Shumpert, Jonathon Simmons, Vince Carter, Lance Stephenson and Thabo Sefolosha are among the other most wings available who could play rotation roles next season.

Stretch fours

Lyles isn’t the only power forward with an outside shot who is still on the board. Ryan Anderson fits that bill, as do Jonas Jerebko and Dante Cunningham. Dragan Bender never developed into that sort of player, but he’s still just 22 years old and could be worth it.

Carmelo Anthony probably can’t realistically be considered a stretch four, but we’ll include him here — we haven’t heard much about potential landing spots for him this offseason, outside of some speculation that he’ll become the Lakers’ 15th man.

Flames trying to free up cap space

Flames trying to free up cap space Aside from changing veteran goaltenders, Calgary has been relatively quiet this offseason. With several players still in need of new contracts, GM Brad Treliving’s focus has predominantly been on trying to get those deals done. However, he acknowledged to reporters, including Postmedia’s Kristen Anderson, that the Flames have been active in trying to free up cap room but haven’t found a deal that makes sense just yet. As their roster currently

As the NBA offseason wears on, there are still a few free agents that could make an impact on a championship team. Where will Jamal Crawford land as he looks to hunt down an elusive ring? Will Rodney Hood stay with the Cavs or end up elsewhere?

Now that LeBron, Paul George, DeAndre Jordan & KD are out of the way, the real free agent work begins. Harris Rubenstein joined Kate to talk about the likes of Isaiah Thomas, Zach LaVine, Jabari Parker & more.

Big men

Teams in need of a veteran center still have a few options. Tyson Chandler is out there, as are Joakim Noah, Nene, Kosta Koufos, Amir Johnson, Zaza Pachulia and Greg Monroe.

Pau Gasol, 39, is still recovering from a procedure on his foot, but he wants to keep playing and could be a worthwhile addition if he gets healthy.

Here are our full lists of remaining free agents by position/type and by team.
