Notable players reportedly available on buyout and free agency market following 2020 NBA Trade Deadline

Now that the trade deadline has come and gone, NBA teams turn their attention to the buyout and free agency market.

As reports are made of players being bought out or waived, this file will be updated.

Darren Collison, G, Free Agent - Retired

Collison announced in the offseason that he was retiring from the NBA. After reports surfaced that he was considering a return, Adrian Wojnarowski ultimately decided to remain retired.

Collison started in 76 games last season for an Indiana Pacers team that finished with the fifth-best record in the Eastern Conference. He averaged 11.2 points, 6.0 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game on 46.7 percent shooting from the field.

In 2017-18, Collison led the league in 3-point percentage by making 46.8 percent of his attempts from the perimeter.

JR Smith, G, Free Agent

Marc Stein of the New York Times broke the news that the Lakers are expected to give Smith an audition following the trade deadline.

Smith last played on Nov. 19, 2018. Now 34, he is a career 37.3 percent 3-point shooter.

Smith was teammates with LeBron James on the Cleveland Cavaliers between 2014-15 and 2017-18.

Marvin Williams, F, Charlotte Hornets

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Hornets have bought out Williams, paving the way for him to sign with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Bucks will reportedly waive Dragan Bender to make room for Williams.

Williams wasn't a big part of Charlotte's rotation this season, but he's a well-respected veteran who has been a solid 3-point shooter in his NBA career. He fits in well with the Bucks in that regard because he'll help space the floor for Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe as a stretch four.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, F, Charlotte Hornets

The Hornets announced that they have waived Kidd-Gilchrist.

According to ESPN's Wojnarowski, the Dallas Mavericks are interested in signing him.

Kidd-Gilchrist would give the Mavericks a versatile defender and solid cutter next to Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis.

Dion Waiters, G, Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies acquired Waiters before the trade deadline, but they do not intend on keeping him, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

It appears as though the Grizzlies will either buy him out or waive him.

Waiters has one more year remaining on his current contract. He is owed $12.1 million this season and $12.7 million next season.

Reggie Jackson, G, Detroit Pistons

According to Stein of the New York Times, Jackson is "still assessing" whether or not he's going to pursue a buyout with the Pistons, but the Clippers appear to be interested in the 29-year-old if he does.

Jackson has dealt with injuries in three of the last four seasons. In the 11 games he has appeared in this season, Jackson has posted 15.4 points and 4.5 assists in 25.9 minutes.

Evan Turner, G, Minnesota Timberwolves

Turner was involved in the four-team trade that saw the Atlanta Hawks land Clint Capela and the Houston Rockets land Robert Covington.

According to Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic, Turner is discussing a buyout with the Timberwolves, the team he was traded to in the blockbuster deal.

Turner hopes to play for a contender, Krawczynski adds.

Turner has played in only 19 games this season. He has career averages of 9.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 0.8 steals per game.

Isaiah Thomas, G, LA Clippers

After acquiring him in the deal that landed them Marcus Morris, the Clippers will waive Thomas, David Aldridge of The Athletic reports.

In 40 games with the Washington Wizards this season, Thomas averaged 12.2 points on 40.8 percent shooting from the field and 41.3 percent from 3-point range.
