Then comes the league's buyout market, which reserves some treasures for teams that want to compete for the title. A recent success story would be Kevin Love as Miami Heat. The veteran power forward terminated his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers in February 2023 and signed with the Florida team shortly thereafter, becoming a very important piece in the rotation of the squad that reached the NBA Finals.

In the current season, during the February break, some players have already found their new homes, such as Spencer Dinwiddie who went to Los Angeles Lakers, Kyle Lowry as Philadelphia 76ers It is Danilo Gallinari that agreed with the Milwaukee Bucks. Some good names are still available for teams to try to get as round as possible for the playoffs.

The small forward Marcus Morris is one of them. The player reached San Antonio Spurs as part of the triple swap that took the shooting guard Buddy Hield for the Sixers and Doug McDermott for the Indiana Pacers. Since arriving at the franchise, the veteran has not taken the court and should have his contract terminated. Another case is that of Daniel House Jr., who had a good time during the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons, but ended up suspended in 2020 for violating league policies. Currently, the player can offer a lot defensively within the rotation and should be able to find a new team while he waits as a free agent.

League champion in 2021/22, Otto Porter Jr. was sent to Utah Jazz in an exchange that took Kelly Olynyk It is Ochai Agbaji for the Toronto Raptors, but he did not play for the franchise and is not expected to enter the court, seeking a buyout agreement, being in the last year of his contract, worth US$6.3 million. Another one who is experiencing free agency is the point guard Killian Hayeswhich ended up being discarded from the Detroit Pistons after many inconsistencies in his game. At 22 years old, he is a young player who can help and improve his career.

Last but not least, a great name would be the small forward Joe Harris, who is also in free agency. Considered a good acquisition by the Pistons during the 2023 offseason, the player simply did not succeed. Having shoulder problems that limited him to just 16 games this season, he is 32 years old and was in the last year of his contract when he ended up being released by the Michigan team.
