On January 20, 2013, the Miami Heat signed unrestricted free agent Chris "Birdman" Andersen to a 10-day contract. 

After being waived by the Denver Nuggets on July 17, 2012, Andersen re-entered the league with the Heat from the unemployment ranks. He'd sign another 10-day contract on January 30 before inking a deal that kept him in Miami for the duration of the season on February 9. 

For the bargain-bin NBA price of $540,872, Birdman went on to make critical plays down the stretch in a supporting role to help Miami win the 2013 NBA championship. 

As the Heat attempt to three-peat in 2014, they will enter the summer with approximately $75.5 million in guaranteed salary. The only free agents they are in a position to target are those, like Birdman, who could be signed for a similar price of $1 million annually or less.

This list is ranking those potential bargain-bin free-agent options in terms of financial fit and projected impact in 2014.
