A lot of teams panicked and locked up anything they could before the lockout and motions for the new CBA.

That covered pretty much all free-agents over a two-year period. This summer is the backwash of that panicking so it's obviously going to be a short list.

What will boost it is the buyout retread market. Teams looking for a cheap vet can find someone who was bought out at a discounted price.

So, even if there's nothing high-end out there, it's not like it's not going to be an interesting summer.
