Although many NBA teams have their rosters virtually set, and Al Harrington among the best the remaining free agents who teams should look at signing.

The remaining free agents are looking for new teams as the season approaches. With the high-profile free agents already signed, teams are now just looking to add depth and key role players.

Players on this list may not be star players, but they can still help teams this season.

A couple of these players just hit the free agent market, so keep an eye on them now that they are available.

Let's take a look at the best remaining free agents in the NBA.


Al Harrington, F

Marc Stein of reported on Sunday that Al Harrington cleared waivers. The Orlando Magic cut him to shed salary.

No team wanted to take on his big contract, so he passed through waivers and can now sign with any team. 

Harrington missed most of the season with a staph infection in his right knee and had to wear a brace when he returned in February. He never felt comfortable in it, but he was shut down shortly after returning as the Magic wanted to let younger players get minutes.

Although he missed most of last season, he was still productive in the 2011-12 season. He averaged 14.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.

Harrington has played in this league for 15 seasons. Some team will be intrigued and want to bring him in to add depth. He could help contending team push for a championship.


Mo Williams, PG

One player who still has a lot left in the tank is Mo Williams. The former All-Star put up quality numbers last season, but the Utah Jazz drafted Trey Burke to run the offense.

Williams averaged 13.8 points and five assists per game last season. He shot 43 percent from the floor, 88.2 percent from the line and 38.3 percent from three-point range. Those numbers show that he can still play.

Most teams have their point guard position set, so Williams will probably have to go somewhere to be a backup. 

Williams has done well everywhere he has gone. He has changed teams a couple of times in the last few seasons, and his numbers have not suffered.

He is the best point guard remaining on the market, but there may not be many teams interested in him unless he is willing to accept a backup role at a low price.


Antawn Jamison, F

Although he is getting near the end of his career, Antawn Jamison remains one of the best free agents on the market.

Jamison went to the Lakers last season hoping to win a title, but now he will look to elsewhere to win his first ring.

The 37-year-old was still a productive player last season. He averaged 9.4 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. He also shot 46.4 from the floor, so he can still help a team.

He isn't going to be a starter at this point in his career, barring injuries to a team, but he can still come off the bench and give a team valuable minutes.

The veteran will be looking for the right fit, so look for him to go to a contender.
