Online NBA Betting Sizes Up Free Agents
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
The online NBA betting offseason is in full march. Already we’ve seen a flurry of rumors and transactions that is bound to shake things up in both the Eastern and Western Conferences. Before we break down the latest lines for players who bet on NBA, let’s check out the best market on the talent.
Hottest Online NBA Betting Free Agents Available
No. 1 – Danilo Gallinari – Unrestricted | SF | 18.2 ppg, 5.2 rpg | $15 million earned in 2016-17
At 6’10”, Gallinari is an extremely valuable small forward. His long-range makes him a great addition to any team and basketball betting sites are expecting Gallinari to sign an eye-catching deal.
No. 2 – Pau Gasol | Unrestricted | PF | 12.4 ppg, 7.8 rpg | $15.5 million earned in 2016-17
Some online NBA betting players feel like Gasol has been sacrificing stats to fit into the Spurs’ game plan. We’ll have to see what the longtime veteran plans on doing.
No. 3 – Otto Porter | Restricted | SF | 13.4 ppg, 6.4 rpg | ~$6 million earned in 2016-17
Porter delivered a strong performance last season for the Washington Wizards. The timing certainly favors the free agent and Porter is likely to walk away with big money.
No. 4 – Nerlens Noel | Center | 8.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg | $4.4 million earned in 2016-17
May have some warning signs but Noel is a huge [6’11”] player with great defense, not the strongest offense however.
No. 5 – Dirk Nowitzki | Team Option | PF | 14.2 ppg, 6.5 rpg | $25 million earned in 2016-17
Nowitzki’s age caught up to him this past season and many were expecting him to retire afterwards.
No. 6 – Kentavious Caldwell-Pope | SG | 13.8 ppg, 3.3 rpg | ~$4 million earned in 2016-17
Caldwell-Pope was expected to deliver some big numbers last season. That never materialized but he’ll still get some great value this offseason.
No. 7 – Mason Plumlee | Restricted | C | 10.4 ppg, 7.5 rpg | $2.3 million earned in 2016-17
Since Denver gave Jusif Nurkic away to gain Plumlee, it’s more than likely that he stays with the nuggets.
No. 8 – Rudy Gay | Unrestricted | SF | 18.7 ppg, 6.3 rpg | ~$14 million earned in 2016-17
Gay suffered a season ending injury that will likely keep him from signing a big contract.
No. 9 – Derrick Rose | Unrestricted | PG | 18.0 ppg, 3.8 rpg | $21.3 million earned in 2016-17
Some online NBA betting players might want to see Rose higher on this list. The veteran played consistently well throughout the season but his incident vs. New Orleans isn’t going to help him land a new home.
No. 10 – Dion Waiter | Player Option | SG | 15.8 ppg, 3.3 rpg | ~$3 million earned in 2016-17
Waiter played very well for Miami – who had a better season that many were expecting. Might not be enough to get him the money he wants however.
