Marks: Warriors won't make playoffs next year (1:28)

Bobby Marks argues that after losing Kevin Durant to free agency and with Klay Thompson out for an extended period, the current Warriors roster will not make the playoffs next season. (1:28)

Which players are still available in the 2019 NBA free-agent class, and how much money are they expected to command?

It's easy to project a max contract for Kawhi Leonard, the best player on the board. But what about the other starters and rotation players waiting to sign new deals?

Here are complete lists, broken down by position, that take a look at the salary range for each free agent along with likely role.

One important note: These projections are for starting salaries if a player signs a long-term deal. Players certainly could sign one-year deals for significantly more money than they're projected for here, as JJ Redick did when he agreed to a $23 million contract with the Philadelphia 76ers in 2017.

We've also included a breakdown of the general ranges for max salaries and cap exceptions.
