2019 NBA free agency rankings: Top 50 players include Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, injured Kevin Durant and Jimmy Butler

The free agency frenzy of 2019 has been highly anticipated for a long time, and it's hard to believe that it has exceeded our wildest expectations. What started with a frenzy on the first night of free agency has culminated with the Los Angeles Clippers landing both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to form one of the most formidable duos in the NBA.

Before that, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving shook up the NBA landscape by reportedly agreeing to team up with the Brooklyn Nets. Of course Durant will likely miss the majority of next season, if not all of it, while recovering from Achilles surgery, but Brooklyn is certainly set up for a bright future.

After the injury to Durant, two-time Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard became the clear top free-agent prize, and he reportedly fielded max offers from multiple teams before joining the Clippers. Below Leonard and Durant, the list becomes more a matter of preference. It will change depending on who you ask, but here is our ranking of the top 50 free agents this summer, though at this point most of them have been swooped up.
