In a collective sport like basketball, not everything is the stars. There are players who can fill a secondary role, and be a key factor in great achievements. No champion team in history is lacking in this type of profile. That is why we are going to present you the protagonists with the most options to move before the first initial jump of the 2022/23 season is given.

Eric Gordon

The last piece of Houston Rockets who fought the Golden State Warriors a few years ago. The 33-year-old guard has less and less prominence, but continues to maintain a high salary. It’s the big reason the Texan franchise is having trouble getting rid of him. He has been in Houston since 2016, and last season he averaged 13.4 points on more than 40% from 3-point range. He could bring his veteran and outside shooting, so he would have to have interested teams. The problem is what was mentioned before, the amount he charges.

Evan Fournier

The French shooting guard is currently disputing the eurobasketball with your selection. After spending more than 6 years in Orlando, he finished in 2021 in Bostonand is now in the New York Knicks. Last season he had 14.1 points and good percentages from the 3 line, being a starter in the 80 games he played. He has been in the transfer rumors of Donovan Mitchell but, with that issue settled, we will see where it could end if it does not stay in The Big Apple. He could have teams interested thanks to his experience, his ability to handle the ball and his play on the outside.

Terrence Ross

Another last survivor. Precisely of the Orlando Magicwhere the leaders were Fournier himself and Nikola Vučević. The forward arrived at the Disneyworld franchise in 2017, and in 2021/22 he gave the Magic 10 points per game coming off the bench. Another player who has been in the league for a few years now and could bring some XP.

Doug McDermott

Another forward shooter with several seasons behind him. After 3 years in the Indiana Pacers performing at a good level, has had a somewhat more complicated journey through the San Antonio Spurs, with averages of 11.3 points per game. Of course, he maintains his lethal wrist (42.2% in the triple), which could and should interest numerous franchises.

Derrick Favors

Each time it has a more complicated role to find in the best league in the world. The center was last season in the tanking of the Oklahoma City Thunder, averaging 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in 39 games. It remains to be seen if any franchise wants to give him a more important role, or simply put 12 years in the NBA at his service.
