The dust has started to settle after a wild start to NBA Free Agency.

LeBron James went back home to the Cleveland Cavaliers while Carmelo Anthony spurned potential suitors, like the Bulls, and stayed put in New York with the Knicks. 

The Bulls added to their front court depth by snagging big man Pau Gasol from the Los Angeles Lakers and bringing over European star Nikola Mirotic from Real Madrid in Spain. 

While Miami wasn't able to retain King James, the Heat were able to keep Chris Bosh and acquire former Bulls forward Luol Deng.

So after all the movement in the first week of free agency, is there a clear favorite in the Eastern Conference?

"It's kind of wide open," Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com said. "Cleveland, we will see what kind of other pieces they will add to the puzzle. The Chicago Bulls did very well in getting Pau Gasol and getting a deal done with Nikola Mirotic. Those are two great additions to their team that will more than make up for the loss of Carlos Boozer to amnesty. Miami kept every piece of their team together except the key guy."
