In the months ahead, the NBA is set to add at least two potential stars via the draft in Zion Williamson and Ja Morant. After that is free agency -- and what a summer it could be with so many big-name players having the opportunity to sign with new teams.

Here's a quick look at some of names from that list: Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, Kemba Walker, Nikola Vucevic, Jimmy Butler, Klay Thompson, DeMarcus Cousins, Hassan Whiteside, Eric Bledsoe, Khris Middleton, Julius Randle, DeAndre Jordan, Tobias Harris, Marc Gasol and Trevor Ariza.

It's still helpful to get a sense of how the roto rankings would look if next season started today, though -- before any big changes play out.

I have James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Anthony Davis as the top three, followed by Durant and Joel Embiid. Of course, Davis will need to return to good graces with the Pelicans or find a new home elsewhere, and Durant could be an even bigger fantasy force if he chooses to leave Golden State's star-studded roster after three electrifying seasons.

Continuing down the list, the well-rounded game of Nikola Jokic (9) and rare skill set at the center position help him come in before LeBron James (10) and Russell Westbrook (11).

Bradley Beal (13) is a high second-round pick, as John Wall is expected to miss all of next season and Beal has proved to be lights-out whenever he goes long stretches without Wall.

Pascal Siakam (46), Marvin Bagley III (65) and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (69) are three notable risers who will begin next season's rankings much higher than they did in 2018-19. Siakam came out of nowhere to be one of the game's top two-way players this season, while Bagley showed great promise as a rookie and is expected to move into the starting lineup in Year 2. Meanwhile, Gilgeous-Alexander has the polished game of a five-year vet, and his terrific showing in his first taste of the playoffs bodes well for big things to come for the young guard.

Kristaps Porzingis (34) gets a new start with Dallas after missing a full season, while Victor Oladipo (42) is more of a risk as he has yet to have a timeline for when he can return to the court. Remember, Oladipo suffered a quad injury that is similar to the one that kept Kawhi off the court for much of his final season in San Antonio.

Wendell Carter Jr. (63) and Lonzo Ball (94) are two others who crack the top 100 after having this season cut short due to injury.
