With the playoffs coming to an end soon, all the teams are ready to trade the best players from the free-agent class for 2023. The class, however, remains limited to only a few good options.

From the most experienced James Jarden and Kyrie Irving to the emerging and improving ones like Fred VanVleet, these free agents have had their share of careers with different franchises.

Charting at No.1 is MVP and 10-time All-Star James Harden. The Philadelphia 76ers player currently in a 2-year $68.64 million contract with a player option will be on the lookout for teams.

Proving beneficial for the Mavericks alongside Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving is currently in a $36.5 million player option from the Brooklyn Nets this season and can be an option for the trade.

Scoring a career-high 43 points and showing improvements, Kristaps Porziņģis, an All-Star currently stands with a player option from his 5-year contract with Dallas Mavericks worth $158.25 million.

Averaging 19.3 points and 7.2 assists per game this season, Toronto Raptors undrafted player Fred VanVleet will become a restricted free agent this summer carrying good offense against shooters.

NBA champion and All-Star Brook Lopez, with 25 points in a playoff game and averaging 63.8 shooting percentage this season in the absence of Giannis, represents a good option for trade for others.

Besides these top 5 free agents, this season there are other players on the list that include Draymond Green, Josh Hart, D'Angelo Russell, Kyle Kuzma, Russell Westbrook, Dillion Brooks, and more.
