To the casual NBA fan, it may appear that this summer's free-agency period is already over. The stars and key players have all picked their destinations and locked themselves into deals, and even most of the quality role players out there have found their latest jersey to wear.
However, the real basketball junkies know that that is far from the case: There is still value to be claimed out on the open market. Whether it comes in the form of a little-known rotation piece, a much-maligned former starter or even just a young, underrated athlete, there are several players left in free agency who are capable of making an impact next season.
With most teams already over the salary cap limit or trying to preserve precious financial flexibility, no one is going to be throwing around huge money, and a savvy, low-key signing or two could make a world of difference during the regular season.
Here are eight free agents still available who could prove to be major steals this summer.
