Where does Trevor Ariza rank?
Which players are worth opening the wallet for in this year's class of NBA free agents, SportsNation?
A lot of the talk in pro basketball circles is about next year's group of potential free agents, which could include names like LeBron James, Dirk Nowitzki, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and others. But there could be players capable of making a championship difference in this year's class. Just consider Lamar Odom and Trevor Ariza, two Lakers who played key roles in their team's title run and are soon to be on the open market.
We've left off Kobe Bryant, who technically could opt out of his deal, but how do you size up the rest of the players who might be on the move?
