Teams have accomplished a ton during the early part of 2022 NBA free agency.

The New York Knicks finally found their point guard in Jalen Brunson. The Philadelphia 76ers snagged what they hope will be the missing piece of their championship puzzle in P.J. Tucker. The Portland Trail Blazers fortified the defensive end with Gary Payton II. The Sacramento Kings increased their offensive potency with Malik Monk.

Oh yeah, and the Washington Wizards (Bradley Beal) and Chicago Bulls (Zach LaVine) locked down their stars for the long haul.

Still, there is more work to be done: more money to spend, more needs to address and more hidden gems to uncover. Considering roster dynamics, cap situations and everything in between, we have identified one free agent every team should still have on the radar.


Atlanta Hawks: Kessler Edwards(Signed with Nets)

Atlanta assembled one of the Association's best backcourts by linking Trae Young and Dejounte Murray together, and this frontcourt may remain crowded until a John Collins trade actually happens.

The wing rotation, however, needs help, and that was true even before the Hawks sent Kevin Huerter to Sacramento. Prying Kessler Edwards would be a fascinating way to address that void.

Edwards impressed in a three-and-D role as a rookie, splashing 35.3 percent of his perimeter shots and holding his own in mostly difficult defensive matchups. With his 22nd birthday approaching in August, he is the perfect age to grow with this core.


Boston Celtics: Dwight Howard

The Celtics need more size and length on the interior, particularly after trading backup big man Daniel Theis.

Dwight Howard may not offer a ton during what will be his age-37 season, but he still checks those boxes easily.

It took him a while to settle into a supporting reserve role, but now he's handling the late-career wind-down just fine. He can tally an impressive number of boards, blocks and point-blank buckets in roughly 20 minutes a night.


Brooklyn Nets: Moses Brown

Everything in Brooklyn is in limbo at the moment, with the futures of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving up in the air. Settling on the right free-agency target is tricky, then, since it isn't clear what the Nets will be chasing next season.

Still, you could make an argument for Moses Brown appealing to Brooklyn regardless of which path it chooses.

If the Nets opt for a long-term rebuild, they could do worse than adding a bouncy 22-year-old who stands 7'2" tall. If they wind up in the championship race, his size and interior activity could be useful in a high-energy, niche role.
