OPINION: Outdated NBA free-agent moratorium rules need to change

Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard dribbles the ball against Philadelphia 76ers guard Jimmy Butler.

The top guys

Kevin Durant — Four-year, $164 million deal with Brooklyn. Sure, Durant will likely miss all of next season while rehabbing a torn Achilles, and he may never be the same player again. But the Nets struck gold, plain and simple. Durant is arguably the best player in the league, and when you have a chance to get him, you take it.

Kyrie Irving — Four-year, $141 million deal with Brooklyn. Irving's Boston career had a sour ending, but despite the off-court issues and injuries, there's no denying his talent. He's only 27 and he remains one of the best scorers in the game. The Nets will have to wait to see Irving and Durant on the court at the same time, but that's certainly something worth waiting for.

Klay Thompson — Five-year, $190 million deal to stay with Golden State. As long as the money was there, Thompson wasn’t leaving the Warriors. Like Durant, he could miss all of next season (ACL tear), so this move doesn't help the Warriors in the short term. In the long term, though, it keeps the best shooting backcourt in league history together.

Kemba Walker — Four-year, $141 million deal with Boston. Walker, a three-time All-Star who had one of the best seasons of his career in 2018-19 for Charlotte, fills the hole at point guard for the Celtics. He averaged 25.6 points, 5.9 assists, 4.4 rebounds and shot 43.4% from the field and 35.6% on 3-pointers during his final year with the Hornets.

Jimmy Butler — Four-year, $141 million deal in sign-and-trade with Miami. Another year, another team for Butler. Only this time, he's the clear-cut No. 1 option, and he joins an organization in need of a star. This move doesn't make the Heat a title contender by any means, but Butler is one of the top two-way talents in the league.

Nikola Vucevic — Four-year, $100 million deal to stay with Orlando. Vucevic, a first-time All-Star last season, is one of the most underrated big men in the league, and the Magic didn't want to let him go. The 28-year-old was one of just five players to average at least 20 points, 12 rebounds and three assists last season.

Khris Middleton — Five-year, $178 million deal to stay with Milwaukee. A steep price, sure, but Middleton is worth it. The 27-year-old All-Star has been a great No. 2 option alongside MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, and letting him walk after he helped lead the team to an NBA-best 60-win regular season would have been tough to do.

Tobias Harris — Five-year, $180 million deal to stay with Philadelphia. Believe it or not, the 76ers are the fifth team of Harris' career — and he's there for the long haul. He was the third or fourth option for the Sixers on many nights last season and still averaged 18.2 points and 7.9 rebounds. The contract is huge, but it's slightly less than the max.

Kristaps Porzingis — Five-year, $158 million deal to stay with Dallas. No surprise here. Porzingis (ACL tear) has yet to play a game for the Mavs after they traded for him in January, and the organization views him as a franchise cornerstone alongside Rookie of the Year Luka Doncic. He's still just 23, and he has the potential to be one of the top bigs in the league for years.

Al Horford — Four-year, $109 million deal with Philadelphia. The five-time All-Star, do-it-all big man left one Eastern Conference contender and joined another. Horford will be missed in Boston and welcomed warmly in Philadelphia. A potential frontcourt of Harris, Horford and Joel Embiid will be scary.

D'Angelo Russell — Four-year, $117 million deal in sign-and-trade with Golden State. The Warriors somewhat mitigated the loss of Durant by acquiring the 23-year-old Russell, an All-Star this past season for the Nets. To make the trade for Russell work, though, Golden State had to ship out longtime mainstay Andre Iguodala along with future picks. Russell can play either guard position, a big boost for a Warriors team that will likely be without the injured Thompson for most, if not all, of next season.

The other guys

Bojan Bogdanovic — Four-year, $73 million deal with Utah. He may not be a household name, but Bogdanovic made a huge impact for Indiana last season, especially after Victor Oladipo went down. He was one of just five players in the league to average at least 18 points while shooting 42% or better from beyond the arc. This is a sneaky-good move by the Jazz.

Brook Lopez — Four-year, $52 million deal to stay with Milwaukee. Lopez played a big role in Milwaukee's dominant season, and the Bucks clearly coveted their 7-footer. Lopez started 81 regular season games, averaging 12.5 points and 4.9 rebounds while hitting 36.5% of his 3-pointers.

Harrison Barnes — Four-year, $85 million deal to stay with Sacramento. The Kings traded for Barnes at the February deadline and he shot 40.8% from beyond the arc in 28 games after joining the team. He wasn't the best wing on the free agent market, but he fills a need in Sacramento, and he should continue to fit nicely alongside De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield.

Malcolm Brogdon — Four-year, $85 million deal in sign-and-trade with Indiana. This is a big loss for Milwaukee and a big gain for Indiana. Brogdon, the 2016-17 Rookie of the Year, has developed into one of the better two-way guards in the league.

J.J. Redick — Two-year, $26.5 million deal with New Orleans. Redick, who spent the past two years in Philadelphia, is coming off one of the best seasons of his 13-year career. He gives the Pelicans some much-needed shooting as they look to remain competitive after trading away Anthony Davis.

Patrick Beverley — Three-year, $40 million deal to stay with the L.A. Clippers. The Clippers retained a key piece to their team by agreeing to terms with the 30-year-old guard. Beverley's numbers don't pop off the page – he averaged 7.6 points, five rebounds and 3.8 assists while appearing in 78 contests last season – but he's a heart-and-soul player who brings tenacious defense.

DeAndre Jordan — Reportedly a four-year, $40 million deal with Brooklyn. The 30-year-old center was traded to the Knicks in January, and he played well before losing minutes to rookie Mitchell Robinson, showing the ability to still finish at the rim, rebound and block shots. It will be interesting to see how he and 21-year-old big man Jarrett Allen split time in Brooklyn.

Julius Randle — Reportedly a three-year, $63 million deal with New York. The Knicks missed out on Durant and Irving, but that's not to say Randle isn't a great acquisition. The former No. 7 overall pick is just 24, and he put up monster numbers — 21.4 points, 8.7 rebounds, 3.1 assists — with New Orleans last season.

Jonas Valanciunas — Three-year, $45 million deal to stay with Memphis. Valanciunas played well in 19 games (averaged 19.9 points and 10.7 rebounds) with Memphis last season after being traded from Toronto, and the Grizzlies are clearly excited about what he can do next to budding star Jaren Jackson Jr. in the frontcourt.

Ricky Rubio — Reportedly a three-year, $51 million deal with Phoenix. The Suns needed a point guard, and they got one in Rubio — a 28-year-old veteran who spent the past two seasons with Utah. He gives the Suns an immediate boost, sure, but is that what they really want?

Thomas Bryant — Three-year, $25 million deal to stay with Washington. The Wizards made it a priority to keep the 21-year-old in town following a breakout season in which he averaged 10.5 points and 6.3 rebounds.

Seth Curry — Four-year, $32 million deal with Dallas. This will be Curry's second stint in Dallas, where he had a breakout season in 2016-17. He's a knockdown shooter who made 45% of his 3-pointers last season with Portland.

Al-Farouq Aminu — Three-year, $29 million deal with Orlando. He's fairly limited offensively, but Aminu is a versatile defender who can guard multiple positions.

Dewayne Dedmon — Reportedly a three-year, $41 million deal with Sacramento. The Kings also reportedly rescinded their qualifying offer to Willie Cauley-Stein and brought in Trevor Ariza and Cory Joseph, adding three seasoned veterans to mesh with the young core. Will this finally be the year that they get over the hump and make the postseason?

Derrick Rose — Two-year, $15 million deal with Detroit. He's not the MVP he once was, but Rose is coming off a resurgent year in Minnesota. He's worth the gamble.

Terry Rozier — Reportedly a three-year, $58 million deal in sign-and-trade with Charlotte. Rozier isn't Walker, but he's the point guard of the future in Charlotte. The 25-year-old showed flashes of stardom for Boston during the 2017-18 season, but he took a step back last year, especially in the playoffs, where he averaged just 6.4 points and shot 32.2% from the field.

Jeremy Lamb — Three-year, $31.5 million deal with Indiana. Another nice addition for the Pacers. Lamb, 27, is coming off the best year of his career, averaging 15.3 points and 5.5 rebounds in 28.5 minutes for Charlotte.

Terrence Ross — Four-year, $54 million deal to stay with Orlando. Ross was inconsistent last season, but he's still one of the best reserves in the league.

Thaddeus Young — Three-year, $41 million deal with Chicago. The 31-year-old doesn't exactly fit in with the youth movement in Chicago, but he's a highly-respected veteran who produces year after year.

Rudy Gay — Reportedly a two-year, $32 million deal to stay with San Antonio. Gay looked like his old self at times last season, averaging 13.7 points and 6.8 rebounds while shooting a career-high 40.2% from beyond the arc and 50.4% from the field.

DeMarre Carroll — Two-year, $12 million deal with San Antonio. A solid veteran wing, Carroll should have a similar role to the one he had in Brooklyn, where he averaged 12.3 points and 5.9 rebounds over two seasons.

Bobby Portis — Two-year, $31 million deal with New York. The Wizards rescinded their qualifying offer to Portis, paving the way for him to join the Knicks. A first-round pick in 2015, Portis has averaged 10.2 points and 6.2 rebounds in his career while mostly coming off the bench.

Reggie Bullock — Two-year, $21 million deal with New York. The Knicks also brought in Wayne Ellington (two years, $16 million) and Taj Gibson (two years, $20 million).

Enes Kanter — Two-year, $10 million deal with Boston. Kanter brings a solid inside presence to help mitigate the loss of Horford. He has his defensive issues, but he's a capable scorer in the paint and a good rebounder on both ends of the floor.

Tomas Satoransky — Three-year, $30 million deal in sign-and-trade with Chicago. Satoransky, 27, filled in admirably for the injured John Wall in Washington last season, averaging 10.7 points and 6.2 assists while shooting 40.4% from beyond the arc.

Ish Smith — Two-year, $12 million deal with Washington. The speedy veteran should see plenty of playing time in Washington with Wall injured and Satoransky gone.

Wesley Matthews — One-year, $2.3 million deal with Milwaukee. Bucks general manager Jon Horst landed a proven two-way veteran who will add bench depth. Matthews averaged 10.9 points and shot 37.2% on 3-pointers last season.

Frank Kaminsky — Two-year, $10 million deal with Phoenix. In the right situation, Kaminsky can provide 3-point shooting and stretch the floor as a role player off the bench.

Kevon Looney — Reportedly a three-year, $15 million deal to stay with Golden State. Looney played a key defensive and rebounding role for the Warriors last season in their run to the Finals. The 23-year-old figures to be a regular in the starting lineup next season after averaging 18.5 minutes a game last year.

Isaiah Thomas — Reportedly a one-year deal with Washington. Thomas has spent much of the past two seasons recovering from a hip injury, but with a full offseason to get back into game shape, he should get a chance to help replace Wall in the backcourt.

Willie Cauley-Stein — Reportedly a one-year deal with Golden State. Cauley-Stein struggles with consistency, but he's a young, athletic big who can run the floor.

Daniel Theis — Reportedly a two-year, $10 million deal to stay with Boston. The Celtics have agreed with two other centers in Enes Kanter and Vincent Poirier, but Theis is the best shooter of the bunch.

Jeff Green — Reportedly a one-year, $2.6 million deal with Utah. Green continues his career odyssey around the league. The Jazz will be his eighth team. Green fills a need for Utah as a versatile wing with size who can shoot.

Jared Dudley — One-year, $2.6 million deal with L.A. Lakers. Dudley made an impact as a veteran presence on the young Nets last season. He brings steady shooting and a solid all-around game to a Lakers team in need of capable role players.
