With all the big names gone, who’s left? There aren’t many.

The opening eight hours of NBA free agency answered most of the questions we had about the future of the NBA, and the stunning Kawhi Leonard decision to join the Clippers with Paul George answered the rest.

So who’s left on the board? Not too many people, now that the rest of the dominos are falling. Here are the best free agents left.

Last update: July 11, 10:23 p.m. ET

1. Kenneth Faried

He hasn’t adjusted to the offensive or defensive ways of modern bigs, but his physicality and interior presence is still effective in spot minutes. He revived his career a bit in Houston last year, scoring 13 points with eight rebounds in 24 minutes.

2. Thabo Sefolosha

Sefolosha is a good defensive guard who can fit into any rotation. He averaged a steal in 12 minutes last year, and added four points and three rebounds.

3. Cheick Diallo

Diallo is only 22 and showed promise with New Orleans. He averaged six points with four rebounds on 62 percent shooting last year. Take a chance on Cheick.

4. Nene

At 36, he’s nearing the end of his career, but he was still effective in very limited minutes with Houston last year. He’s a good pickup as a last-resort option for a competitive team.

5. Pau Gasol

Gasol’s season ended early after he had surgery on his foot to repair a stress fracture. And he’s 36 years old. But when healthy, he was still fine last season, averaging four points and four rebounds in 12 minutes.

6. Jonas Jerebko

Jerebko can shoot from deep, making 37 percent of his three attempts per game for the Warriors. Add him for bench depth.

7. Dante Cunningham

Cunningham’s offense isn’t stellar, but defensively, he’s pretty good. He also made 30-of-65 threes he took last year, so maybe he can take (and make) more elsewhere.

8. Nik Stauskas

I’ll never give up on someone who can shoot. He made 37 percent of his threes last year.
