2022 NBA Free Agents

Hoops Rumors’ up-to-date list of 2022 free agents is below. These are players who are eligible for restricted or unrestricted free agency after the 2021/22 season. The player’s 2022 age is in parentheses.

Players who are currently free agents or who are on our 2021 free agent list are not seen here. That means players with team or player options – or non-guaranteed salaries – for the 2021/22 season aren’t listed below. They’ll be added to this list eventually if they remain on their current contracts.

Players with team or player options for the 2022/23 season are listed, unless they’re still on their rookie scale contracts. Players whose ’22/23 salaries aren’t fully guaranteed are also listed below, assuming they have fully guaranteed salaries in all previous seasons.

You’ll be able to access this list anytime under the “Hoops Rumors Features” menu on the right sidebar on our desktop site, or in the “Free Agent Lists” section of our mobile menu. If you have any corrections or omissions, please contact us.

    Isn’t Kyle Lowry an unrestricted free agent after this year? Aron Baynes is also a team option for 2022/23.

    ShaiGA should accept no less than whatever the max is. PER 21, on/off +10, 3pt% rising, flexible for 3 spots.
    But that is a year away at least. Actually I should not have perused this list in the first place!

    Lil D Top 3 (LDT3) rub his crystal ball and predicts someone will overpay Aaron Gordon…

    Hmm wonder if Lowry gets above the MLE –

    Probably deserves it but Id imagine he’d have a much better chance at a ring if accepts the MLE

    Some of the big names have resigned. So it’s not as top heavy as before. Still it’s a big class. Don’t know how many top FA will actually be available. Knicks should be in market for at least one good young FA. At this point I think they go the trade route. Do something by TD and get ready for draft. I still see PG as biggest need. Even with Quickly as a great find. David Duke has to be the one they go for. Big time potential for 2way player. In the draft
    Westbrook won’t be 33 till Nov bro. (32) still like Westbrook
    Knicks needs would be PG, SF if no trades. I can see them go after Rozier or (T Prince, M Bridge) at market value. Both are a good fit to start with Toppin. Randle is having a big yr. Still see Toppin starting at PF before yr is done. We can get good value for Randle. Knicks future finally looking up. Amazing what patience and commitment can do for a team.

    It’s amazing that with traditional, good, old, American named players like these that NBA basketball isn’t more popular !!!
    I’m gonna have a hard time choosing just one !!
    Perhaps I can compromise and use a half a dozen.

      I didn’t know this was a ‘Baby Shower’? Or, are you the blushing bride dreaming again?

    • CursedRangers

      So basketball would be more popular if players had names such as Chris, Christopher, Steve, Bob, Rob, Robert, Robbie, Matt, Matthew, Dave, David, etc…?

    My support of various pro sports teams had it’s origin in them having players with names that matched my own or that of friends, relatives, etc. Can’t say that I’ve come in contact with ANYONE with the names on that list.
