Cameron Payne

It'd be shocking if Cameron Payne didn't have a job by the time the season starts. He had a good year in 2023-24, starting with Milwaukee before finishing in Philadelphia. With the 76ers, he saw more time as the team's backup point guard, providing more scoring, shooting and playmaking at a high level to supply a boost off the bench.

Payne won't command more than the minimum, so someone will likely take a swing on him on a cheap one-year deal. Perhaps one of the reasons why Payne remains unsigned is because Dennis Smith Jr., arguably the best backup point guard still on the market, is a free agent, and teams want to see where he ends up first. Once he is picked up, perhaps Cam Payne will catch more eyes.

Wesley Matthews

Having just finished his 15th NBA season, well-traveled veteran Wesley Matthews remains unsigned. He did not play a prominent role for the Atlanta Hawks this past season, averaging 11.5 minutes over 36 games, both of which were new career lows, so it does not come as a shock that teams have not pounced on him at this point.

Nearing 38 years old, Matthews' best days of basketball are behind him. Truly, this might be it for the two-time Milwaukee Buck, as he could very well hang them up. If he does get a call from a team, he'll likely serve as a veteran presence or mentor for that franchise's younger players. Only time will tell if Wesley Matthews calls it a career or continues playing.
