Just a few short days remain until NBA free agency opens at midnight on July 1, and the speculation is already running rampant.

Yes, LeBron James is technically about to be a free agent -- but he's not going anywhere. Ditto for Dwyane Wade in Miami. Kevin Durant is the headliner of this year's class, but there's always the chance he re-ups in OKC on a one-year deal to hit free agency next year, alongside teammate Russell Westbrook.

Above, we ranked the 20 best players set to be free agents later this week. Click through the gallery to see how we see it, and give us your feedback on Twitter at @AOLSports.
