NBA 73 43 Top 10 NBA free agents in 2011 30304920 Nene Hilario, C Nene+Hilario%2C+C NBA

Signed with: Denver Nuggets (five years, $67 million).

OK, so it's not a great class if this guy is the biggest catch. But the 6-11 Brazilian is a skilled big man and a top-five center in the NBA. At 29, he's in his prime and has erased some doubts about his durability in recent years. The Nuggets needed to keep him after losing three players to China.

Kim Klement - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery1-jW_20111027175013230_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery1-jW_20111027175013230_107_80.JPG
NBA 73 43 Top 10 NBA free agents in 2011 30304918 Tyson Chandler, C Tyson+Chandler%2C+C NBA

Signed with: New York Knicks (four years, $56 million).

It's easy to forget that Chandler wasn't a particularly coveted free agent last summer when he signed with Dallas. Since his defense and leadership proved integral in the Mavs' championship run, it's a bit of a surprise that Mark Cuban didn't make a strong effort to keep him. Chandler turned down a more lucrative offer from the Warriors to join Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire in New York.

NBA 73 43 Top 10 NBA free agents in 2011 30302636 David West, PF David+West%2C+PF NBA

Signed with: Indiana Pacers (two years, $20M).

Coming off an ACL tear, West will have doubters heading into this season. But he also had several suitors after averaging 18.9 points and 7.6 rebounds before his March injury. The Celtics reportedly offered a three-year, $24 million deal, but West took Indiana's shorter deal with a higher annual salary.

Mark J. Rebilas - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery3-JW_20111027175013231_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery3-JW_20111027175013231_107_80.JPG
NBA 73 43 Top 10 NBA free agents in 2011 30304919 Marc Gasol, C Marc+Gasol%2C+C NBA

Signed with: Memphis Grizzlies (four years, $58M).

Pau's younger brother is still the second-best Gasol in the league, but the gap is closing. Marc, 26, averaged 15 points and 11.2 rebounds during the Grizzlies' playoff run. So Memphis owner Michael Heisley rewarded him with a lucrative deal before other teams got in on the bidding.

NBA 73 43 Top 10 NBA free agents in 2011 30302635 Jason Richardson, SG Jason+Richardson%2C+SG NBA

Signed with: Orlando Magic (four years, $25M).

At 30, Richardson is no longer the explosive leaper and scorer he was in Golden State and Charlotte, but he's far from washed up. Contenders in need of scoring punch on the wing -- Chicago Bulls, anyone? -- were rumored to be eyeing this 18 points-per-game career scorer. But the Magic gave him an offer he couldn't refuse to stay in Orlando.

Jim O'Connor - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery5-JW_20111027175013233_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery5-JW_20111027175013233_107_80.JPG
NBA 73 43 Top 10 NBA free agents in 2011 30308221 Jeff Green, SF Jeff+Green%2C+SF NBA

Signed with: Boston Celtics (one year, $9M).

Green didn't prove to be a comfortable fit in Boston after his late-season trade from Oklahoma City. But he agreed to play one more season as a backup to Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. If he thrives, he'll get a longer deal next summer from the Celtics or another team. If he doesn't, Boston can rebuild with someone else.
 

Chuck Cook - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery6-JW_20111027175023236_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery6-JW_20111027175023236_107_80.JPG
NBA 73 43 Top 10 NBA free agents in 2011 30304921 Caron Butler, SF Caron+Butler%2C+SF NBA

Signed with: Los Angeles Clippers (three years, $24M).

The Mavs won a championship with Butler sidelined by injury, so perhaps he was expendable in Dallas. Still, he averaged 15 points when healthy last season and should be a nice fit with the Clips, who desperately needed a small forward to pair with Blake Griffin.

Cary Edmondson - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery7-JW_20111027175230243_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery7-JW_20111027175230243_107_80.JPG
NBA 73 43 Top 10 NBA free agents in 2011 30304923 Kris Humphries, PF Kris+Humphries%2C+PF NBA

Signed with: New Jersey Nets (one year, $7M).

Kim Kardashian's ex-husband is the premier rebounder in this free-agent class after averaging a double-double for the Nets last season. He's 26 and should continue to improve unless he gets his own reality show, so he could cash in with a long-term contract next summer.

Jim O'Connor - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery8-JW_20111027175230244_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/27/102711-NBA-Free-Agents-Gallery8-JW_20111027175230244_107_80.JPG
NBA 73 43 Top 10 NBA free agents in 2011 30304922 Tayshaun Prince, SF Tayshaun+Prince%2C+SF NBA

Signed with: Detroit Pistons (four years, $27M).

It seemed like Prince could use a change of scenery after enduring Detroit's dispiriting decline the past few years. But in a surprise, the versatile 31-year forward decided to stay with the Pistons, who have a new owner and head coach.

NBA 73 43 Top 10 NBA free agents in 2011 30304927 Jamal Crawford, SG Jamal+Crawford%2C+SG NBA

Signed with: Portland Trail Blazers (two years, $10M).

Crawford won the Sixth Man of the Year award in 2010 and proved he could play a key role on a winning team. The Blazers badly needed a shooting guard after Brandon Roy's knee problems forced him to retire.
