The talent pool in the 2019 NBA free-agency class is dwindling, but there are still some impact players available. While Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and DeMarcus Cousins grabbed most of the free-agency headlines Saturday, there are still some unheralded role players who could make serious impacts in the upcoming season.

With that in mind, here are the best remaining NBA free agents.

3. Trey Lyles, F

Trey Lyles was the No. 12 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, but he hasn't been able to consistently produce. Still, the big man has all the tools, and he's shown real flashes of potential at the NBA level. Lyles could be a great fit for any team willing to gamble on a talented, young stretch big.

2. Kelly Oubre Jr., G/F

Like Lyles, Kelly Oubre Jr. hasn't been able to put it all together in the pros yet, but he took some real steps in the right direction with the Phoenix Suns. Oubre has the raw athleticism to be a multi-positional defender, and he averaged 16.9 points per game (PPG) during his time with Phoenix last season. He's a restricted free agent this offseason, so he might be a little expensive, but he has the talent to excel at the NBA level.

1. Marcus Morris, F

Marcus Morris is essentially the antithesis of both Oubre and Lyles. The nine-year veteran plays with toughness, heart, and he was one of the most consistent players on the Boston Celtics last season. Morris is a great two-way player as well, and he could be a solid fit off the bench for a championship contender.
