With only the Finals remaining this NBA season, much of the attention surrounding the league has turned to free agency. While this year's free agent crop isn't quite as big as 2010's, it's still pretty dang good.
In this slideshow will take a look at 10 big name players who are strong candidates to switch teams:
The Clippers backup PG is rumored to be opting out of his deal to become an UFA. If he does indeed make that move, you have to think he'll change teams. You can't blame him, because he'll never get out of Chris Paul's shadow in L.A. Plus, he can probably make a lot more dough elsewhere.
The Rockets are allowing Parsons to become a RFA this summer. If another teams comes in with a large offer, it's questionable if Houston will match. Some think that if Parsons comes off the books, that the team will then use the extra cap space to pursue a max-contract player.
Carter's days in Dallas are very likely over. Rumors have been swirling that he could be headed back to Toronto for a victory lap in what will likely be his final season next year.
Gasol has said that he wants to play for a contender, and the Lakers might be a year or two away from that status. It seems likely that he'll move on to a new chapter this summer, a chapter that will likely be the last of his career.
Deng's stock has certainly dropped off a bit from his days with the Bulls, but that doesn't mean he won't be a sought after free agent this summer. It's really hard to see him voluntarily going back to Cleveland.
It's early, but many feel that Pierce will head back to Boston after a one year hiatus in Brooklyn. But there are others who feel he'll try his luck with another contender in 2014-15 before heading back to the Celtics for a victory lap.
Gay has a player option in Sacramento this summer. Will he choose to stay with the struggling franchise? It's hard to see it, but stranger things have happened. You'd have to think the Kings would need to bring in more talent to put around him before he'd be willing to stay.
Raptors fans are cringing at the thought of Lowry leaving Toronto. But with the Lakers rumored to be willing to pay him the big bucks, it could only be a matter of time.
Stephenson is as good as gone from the Pacers. He needs to go to a new team where he can be the go-to player, and of course where he can get paid the big bucks.
Right now it feels like Melo is strongly considering leaving the Knicks. They're a team several years away from contending and it's just hard to see him sticking it out in the Big Apple. If Anthony truly wants to win, he'll walk away from New York. In the long run, the Knicks will probably be better off too.
