Let's make some deals. The NBA free agency season unofficially started with the blockbuster trade of Chris Paul to Houston on Wednesday, but when the clock hits midnight this Saturday (July 1), the proceedings will commence for real. Ahead of that, here's a look at the top 30 free agents and where everyone might end up.

1. Kevin Durant

Durant is coming off a storybook ending in his first season with the Golden State Warriors, after averaging 35.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 5.4 assists in the NBA Finals and winning Finals MVP along with his first championship. Durant is a free agent in name only, as he will exercise his $27.7 million player option for 2017-18 and then re-sign with the Warriors in the $35 million range. There will be no recruiting frenzy in the Hamptons this summer.

Prediction: Golden State

2. Stephen Curry

The team-friendly four-year, $44 million extension Curry signed in 2012 is finally set to expire. He is expected to get a long-term deal that will be worth over $200 million that will keep him in Golden State for the remainder of his prime.

Prediction: Golden State

3. Gordon Hayward

Coming off a career season in which he averaged a career-high 21.9 points and led the Jazz to the second round of the playoffs, Hayward enters free agency at the age of 27 squarely in his prime with plenty of contenders looking to entice him in free agency. Hayward has already set his schedule and plans on meeting with Miami, Boston and then Utah, in that order. The Celtics appear to be the most serious threat to lure Hayward away from Utah, with rumblings coming out of Boston that Danny Ainge plans on securing Hayward in free agency and then trading for Paul George. Ultimately, Hayward will have to decide between continuing to build with the young core in Utah, or join the Celtics for a chance to compete against LeBron James and the Cavaliers in the East.

Prediction: Boston

4. Blake Griffin

When he's healthy, Griffin is still one of the best power forwards in the league. Though keeping Griffin on the court has been a problem throughout his career, there will be plenty of interest in him this summer. With Paul's departure, it is unclear whether the Clippers want to pivot toward a full rebuild, or if it increases the possibility that they will offer a max contract to Griffin to retain him for the next iteration of this franchise. The bet here is that the Clippers offer Griffin a shorter-term deal due to his injury concerns, while Boston, Miami and perhaps even Oklahoma City enter the sweepstakes. A change of scenery feels like the right move for Griffin at this point in his career.

Prediction: Miami

5. Kyle Lowry

Lowry is the engine that makes the Raptors go, but he also enters free agency at the age of 31 with question marks about his long-term durability and a growing sample size of underwhelming playoff performances, which might make the Raptors hesitate in offering a five-year max deal to their starting point guard. Lowry made clear that he wants to win a championship ring, which might indicate that he's looking elsewhere. San Antonio is an option, although it would need to clear some money -- including potentially trading away LaMarcus Aldridge and/or Tony Parker -- to make an enticing enough offer. The options for Lowry are shrinking, and a return to Toronto seems most likely at this point.

Prediction: Toronto

6. Paul Millsap

Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk has gone on record as saying that Atlanta likely won't offer its 32-year-old forward -- who averaged 18.1 points and 7.7 assists last season -- a max contract in free agency. Schlenk is likely betting on the market to be thinner than expected for his free agent forward, given Millsap's age and the fact that most teams spent a lot of their available money last summer when the salary cap shot up. Denver and even Houston might be intriguing options for Millsap, but there's also a strong possibility he scours the market and realizes the best deal available for him is still in Atlanta.

Prediction: Atlanta

7. J.J. Redick

Much has been made about Paul and Griffin's future with the Clippers, but another core piece that appears headed out the door is starting shooting guard Redick. One of the best three-point shooters in the league, Redick is expected to garner significant interest from teams with cap room, and could get upwards of $25 million per season in the open market. The Nets and Sixers -- both of which play close to Redick's penthouse in Brooklyn -- make sense, and this is the summer for Redick to cash out. There's no championship to be chased in Los Angeles anymore; expect Redick to follow the money in free agency.

Prediction: Philadelphia

8. Jrue Holiday

There's an argument to be made that no team needs to retain their free agent more than the Pelicans do with their starting point guard. After trading backup Tim Frazier to the Washington Wizards last week, it has become more imperative for New Orleans to bring back Holiday, as their roster is still bereft of any high-ceiling talent outside of the Anthony Davis-DeMarcus Cousins duo. Without Holiday, the Pelicans will be scrambling to fill their starting point guard spot, which means Dell Demps will most likely pay whatever price it takes to bring Holiday back.

Prediction: New Orleans

9. Serge Ibaka

Acquired at the trade deadline by the Raptors, Ibaka fortified the team's frontline, averaging 14.2 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 23 regular season games. At age 27, Ibaka's blocks per game has dipped for six straight seasons, and while he was a near 40 percent three-point shooter, there are questions about whether his ultimate role with the team would be as a stretch-four or a starting center. Still, if the Raptors bring back Lowry, then it would make sense to continue building around this core group. Toronto spent the last few years with Luis Scola, Jared Sullinger and Pascal Siakam as stopgap options at the starting power forward spot.

Prediction: Toronto

10. Otto Porter

A restricted free agent, the Wizards are expected to keep the 24-year-old forward --who averaged career-highs in points (13.4) and three-point percentage (43.4 percent) -- last season. Coming off a year in which the team came within one win of reaching the conference finals, Washington figures to do whatever it takes this summer to keep the core group around John Wall and Bradley Beal intact. A team like the Sixers with ample cap room might try to entice Porter with an offer sheet, but the bidding shouldn't get high enough for the Wizards to actually walk away from their 2013 third overall pick.

Prediction: Washington

11. George Hill

Hill solidified Utah's point guard position last season, but if Hayward leaves, do the Jazz want to commit significant money to a 31-year-old point guard on a non-contending team, especially when Dante Exum, Raul Neto and Shelvin Mack present cheaper and younger alternative options in-house? After Lowry and Holiday are off the market, Hill will represent a more affordable fallback option for teams like San Antonio and Minnesota, who might be looking for an upgrade at point guard.

Prediction: Minnesota

12. Andre Iguodala

On a team full of superstars, Iguodala's career resume is just as equally glowing, with a Finals MVP under his belt and a splendid 20-point performance in the series-clinching win over the Cavs in the 2017 NBA Finals. Any rebuilding team would love to add a veteran like Iguodala to their mix. You can go down the list: Philadelphia, Minnesota, Orlando, Brooklyn, to name a few. But why would Iguodala leave the comforts of his sixth-man role with the Warriors, and many more years of competing for championships? The grass isn't always greener on the other side, and Iguodala will ultimately make the decision that makes the most sense for him career-wise.

Prediction: Golden State

13. Dirk Nowitzki

Dirk is not going anywhere.

Prediction: Dallas

14. Dion Waiters

At age 25, Waiters had a career rebirth in Miami last season, and has been saying since the season ended that he wants to continue his run with the Heat. Mutual interest aside, Waiters will be looking for a huge payday. The bidding war for Waiters isn't expected to go above $8-$10 million per season. In that case, expect Waiters Island to situate himself in Miami for the foreseeable future.

Prediction: Miami

15. Danilo Gallinari

Despite his long injury history, Gallinari is still only 28-years-old and has averaged 19.5 points and 18.2 points in his previous two seasons with the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets are rebuilding around Nikola Jokic, and might not be keen to continue having Gallinari as part of their core group, especially if the price tag gets too high. Gallinari has also made it clear that the Nuggets won't be his first choice, and that he intends to scour the market. Could he end up on the Rockets as they continue to load up to challenge the Warriors in the West?

Prediction: Houston

16. Rudy Gay

Gay's time in Sacramento is over, and now the question is where he will land in free agency and at what cost. The 30-year-old forward averaged 18.7 points and 6.3 rebounds in just 30 games last season. Oklahoma City is expected to make a push to upgrade their talent around Russell Westbrook. Right now, that seems like the best fit for Gay on the open market.

Prediction: Oklahoma City

17. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

Stan Van Gundy has already said that retaining Caldwell-Pope is a priority for the Pistons this offseason, and the team has already extended a qualifying offer to its 24-year-old shooting guard. As a restricted free agent, Caldwell-Pope is a natural target for a team like the Nets to extend an offer sheet -- as they did for Tyler Johnson and Alan Crabbe last summer -- to see if they can price him out of Detroit. But the acquisition of D'Angelo Russell means the Nets might look elsewhere, and the market for Caldwell-Pope is likely thin, especially if teams know that the Pistons are likely to match.

Prediction: Detroit

18. Nerlens Noel

The youth movement is on in Dallas, and the Mavericks have been very open about their offseason priority this summer: retaining the 23-year-old Noel to rebuild after Dirk Nowitzki retires. Mark Cuban is selective when it comes to spending money, but has never hesitated when he's committed to having someone in the fold. Expect Noel and the Mavs to reach an agreement soon after July 1.

Prediction: Dallas

19. Jeff Teague

Teague represents a second-tier point guard option. At age 29, he is a serviceable starter who could transition into a Shaun Livingston-type backup guard that can make an impact off the bench. Indiana -- especially with Paul George on his way out -- is likely not particularly interested in paying Teague in the $15-$20 million annual range that he's expected to command in the open market. A rebuilding team like Orlando or Dallas might be a better fit and have more of a need to strengthen their guard rotation.

Prediction: Orlando

20. Pau Gasol

Gasol opted out of his contract with the Spurs, but with the intention of signing a longer-term deal to remain with the team. Even at age 36, he averaged 12.4 points and 7.8 rebounds last season. While he can be a defensive liability on the floor, Gasol is still very much a rotation player on a contending team.

Prediction: San Antonio

21. Patty Mills

Mills will be an interesting name to keep an eye on in free agency. Depending on what the Spurs do with Tony Parker, the team might want to retain the 28-year-old point guard from Australia and make him a starter. This is the conundrum facing other teams as well: whether they value Mills as a starter or a very valuable backup. That goes both ways, as Mills might be looking to cash in on his playoff run and get starters money on the open market. Ultimately, the number of available starting point guard slots is thin, and Mills should end up returning to the Spurs.

Prediction: San Antonio

22. Kelly Olynyk

The 26-year-old Olynyk likely earned himself millions with his Game 7 performance against the Wizards that helped send the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals. Boston will be busy chasing the top-tier free agents in the open market while trying to land Paul George via trade, and the team wants to keep its cap room open for next summer, which means it'll likely not engage in a bidding war to retain Olynyk, who -- outstanding playoff Game 7 aside -- is still just a bench piece.

Prediction: Philadelphia

23. Andre Roberson

The scouting report for Roberson is clear: He's an elite-level perimeter defender who is a liability on the offensive end, where opposing teams often leave him alone due to his inability to knock down open threes. As a restricted free agent, the Thunder are expected to retain Roberson, who despite his flaws, provides ample value as an individual defender.

Prediction: Oklahoma City

24. Patrick Patterson

Patterson disappeared during Toronto's playoff run, averaging just 3.4 points in 10 games, and going scoreless in the team's final two games against the Cavaliers in the second round. His 2017 postseason might be enough to deter teams to make huge offers for a player who has remarkable plus-minus numbers on the floor, is a versatile defender and has the ability to make open threes, even if he's a streaky shooter. If the market shrinks for Patterson, could the mid-level exception from Houston at $8.4 million work to help him rebuild his value?

Prediction: Houston

25. James Johnson

The 30-year-old finally put it together last season in Miami, and was one of the leaders in the locker room that helped the Heat rally from a 11-30 start to a 30-11 finish that almost got them into the playoffs. The market for Johnson could heat up after the top-tier free agents are off the market. At $15 million-plus annually, will Miami be enticed to keep Johnson or let him go? Here's betting on Pat Riley valuing continuity from last year's group.

Prediction: Miami

26. Shaun Livingston

The best backup point guard in the league, Livingston's contributions to the Warriors' second-unit has been invaluable during their three-year run to the Finals. The Warriors might be hesitant to tie up too much money to Livingston, especially with new deals for Durant and Curry this summer, and they have an in-house replacement option in Ian Clark. Similar to Iguodala, Livingston is likely to survey the market and come to a mutually beneficial deal with the Warriors.

Prediction: Golden State

27. P.J. Tucker

An underrated perimeter defender, Tucker might end up being one of the steals of the summer for any team looking to shore up defensively. Plenty of clubs would benefit from adding Tucker to the mix. Now that Phil Jackson is gone, could the Knicks turn the page and start adding players of value in the open market?

Prediction: New York

28. Jonathan Simmons

Another rags-to-riches story out of the Spurs organization, Simmons is a great individual scorer, and at age 27, still has plenty of upside.

Prediction: San Antonio

29. Nikola Mirotic

The shine has worn off Mirotic, who came to the Bulls as a highly-touted prospect, but has largely disappointed, failing to find consistency in his shooting or a set role in Chicago's rotation. A rebuilding team would be wise to see if Mirotic could pan out as a buy-low candidate.

Prediction: Dallas

30. Derrick Rose

The Spurs and Wolves are expected to express interest in Rose, although it's unclear at this point how much the former MVP still has left. There's also the matter of a price tag, as Rose has said repeatedly in the past he's looking for a max contract on the open market. Ultimately, signing with San Antonio and seeing if he can have a second career as a backup on a playoff-caliber team might be the best possible ending for Rose's career.

Prediction: San Antonio
