The NBA draft is in the rearview mirror, but the fun is just beginning for basketball fans because free-agency is just days away. This year's crop of free agents is as strong as it has been in a long time, thanks in large part to a few stars who used their early termination options on their contracts. In fact, this free-agent class has so much talent at the top that where they sign could change the complexion of the NBA for the next five years or longer.

With free agency beginning Tuesday, here is a look at the top available free agents, including a handful of players who would fit in well with the Jazz.

HONORABLE MENTION: Evan Turner, SF, Unrestricted Free Agent
