Each of the 30 teams in the NBA has an offseason wish-list, but not all of the items on them are realistic. Unfortunate as it may be, some contenders have to dip into the bargain bin and fill out their rosters with the dregs of the free-agent pool.
Sometimes it works out well, as was the case for Chris Andersen and the Miami Heat. Other times, it doesn't, and a player gets buried at the end of a bench.
But when you're pressed up against the cap, you have to look for options in that bargain bin, and that's where these guys come into play.
So, which teams could be coming after these 10 players?
The Brooklyn Nets ($86,340,962), Chicago Bulls ($77,988,636), Denver Nuggets ($68,681,468), Golden State Warriors ($74,891,716), Los Angeles Lakers ($79,631,035 without signing Dwight Howard), Miami Heat ($85,675,757), New York Knicks ($77,582,832) and Oklahoma City Thunder ($65,993,678) should all be scouring this article for ideas.
Remember, the salary cap, although it hasn't yet been announced, will likely be set right under $60 million, pushing the luxury-tax threshold up to $70 million and the apron $4 million above that.
If you're already over $60 million, you better start looking at these players, the best bargains who will likely accept minimum deals.
