Big names, big bucks and big markets in pursuit.

NBA free agency has opened, with the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks among the teams in pursuit of some of the many players available.

All-Stars LaMarcus Aldridge of Portland and Marc Gasol of Memphis lead the list of big men that includes DeAndre Jordan of the Clippers, Tyson Chandler of Dallas, and twins Brook Lopez of the Nets and Robin Lopez of Portland.

Dwyane Wade has to decide if he wants to stay in Miami, Rajon Rondo will leave Dallas, and count on the Lakers being linked to many of the marquee names as they try to bring what was long a perennial contender back to prominence after two straight miserable seasons.

The market opened just after midnight EDT on Wednesday. Players can agree to deals at any time but can't sign until July 9.
