This will be the highest percentage since FA began and overall the most FA by a large margin. The reasons are fairly simple.....with expanded rosters you have many more players on the back end of rosters on shorter 1 and 2-year deals and the trend is for shorter veteran deals with a player or team options. Many of these FA won't be impact players with quite a few unable to hook on with another team.Is that standard? Or is there some reason so mant FA this year?
The teams with the most total FA:
10 - Dallas, LA Clippers, New Orleans, NY Knicks, Washington
9 - Atlanta, Brooklyn, Golden State, LA Lakers, Memphis, Miami, Minnesota, Philly, Toronto
8 - Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Detroit, Indiana, Milwaukee, Phoenix
