5 NBA Players Who Will Be Overhyped, Overpaid in Free Agency

The 2022 NBA free-agent landscape is looking a little sparse.

Only six teams are capable of clearing cap space that will allow them to spend more than the mid-level exception,

and there's a dearth of high-end free agents available on the market.

James Harden's downward career trend line is what it is, and nothing in his profile suggests a reversal is in the cards.

Last year saw Harden take a lower share of his shots inside three feet than ever before, 

and he finished less efficiently at that range than he had in any season since his first with the Oklahoma City Thunder way back in 2009-10.
