WITH the free agency hype almost over, some big names and future hall of famers are still out on the market waiting for something to happen.

Carmelo Anthony, Pau Gasol, and Amar’e Stoudemire are among the NBA mainstays who have yet to find their home for the 2019-2020 NBA Season.

Anthony, a former NBA scoring champion and a former franchise player of the Denver Nuggets, is available.

Gasol, a two-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers, was waived by the Milwaukee Bucks and was sent to the free agent market.

Stoudemire, who was a part of the Phoenix Suns’ golden era with Steve Nash and Shawn Marion and last played in an Israeli professional basketball league, attempts to make an NBA comeback. But as of the moment, no team has shown interest in signing him despite his public 15-day workout.

Other big names floating in the market are Kenneth Faried, Nene, Joakim Noah, Monta Ellis, Luol Deng, Jamal Crawford, Jose Calderon, and Andrew Bogut.
