Free agency has seen its fair share of deals produced so far in this off season, with the likes of Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum making big deals already.

However for some stars, the offers haven't been flowing quite as freely, leaving them unsigned to date. 

Let's have a look at some of the big names still up for grabs.

Nikola Pekovic 

The big Montenegran who played with the Minnesota Timberwolves last season refused their qualifying offer to extend his contract for a further year, but hasn't found any joy in free agency. 

It has been reported that the Timberwolves have offered the center a four-year contract worth $12million a year, but as yet, the restricted free agent has not accepted it and could still receive alternative offers.

Jeff Teague 

The 25-year-old point guard has grown frustrated by the lack of offers, especially from his franchise from last season, the Atlanta Hawkes. 

Teague had decent stats last season and feels the Hawkes should be doing more to get a deal done. 

The Bucks have shown an interest in Teague, but the most likely route to Milwaukee for the young point guard would be a sign and trade deal between them and the Hawkes, swapping starting guards Teague and Jennings.

Brandon Jennings 

The point guard from the class of '09 has been somewhat holding out on renewing a deal with the Bucks because he feels like he deserves a pay rise to $12million a year, which would put him on par with the likes Jrue Holiday, Ty Lawson and Stephen Curry. 

However, Jennings' stats don't quite match up to the other point guards in his draft pack and after a shooting slump this season it is unlikely that he'll secure a deal of that magnitude.

With these stars among others still on the market, free agency still clearly has many twists and turns to go. 

It's highly unlikely that players with this much ability won't find a home at an NBA franchise before next season.
