The 2014 NBA free agency class is almost all locked up now.
Even though the focus is justifiably on the stars, this free-agent class has some nice depth as well. There are plenty of young players with potential and veterans ready to join contending teams.
First, let's establish a few basics.
When you see the label "RFA" next to a player's name, that stands for restricted free agent. What that means is the player's former team can match any offer the player receives in free agency.
UFA stands for unrestricted free agent, which means the player is free to sign anywhere.
TS% stands for true shooting percentage, which takes into account two-point field goals, three-point field goals and free throws.
All stats listed are per 36 minutes via Basketball-Reference.com to better compare players. All advanced stats are also via Basketball-Reference.com unless otherwise noted.
There are players with contracts that aren't fully guaranteed for the 2014-15 season who are not listed here, primarily because I'm expecting their deals to be picked up or they already have been. Here's a list of non-guaranteed players who would otherwise be on this list: Jamal Crawford, Draymond Green, Khris Middleton, Pero Antic, Amir Johnson, Luis Scola, Samuel Dalembert and Kosta Koufos.
In regards to the order of the list: every scout or analyst has their weakness or biases, and personally, I tend to overvalue three-point shooting and strong defenders. On the flip side, I tend to undervalue players who can create their own shot and break down a defense off the dribble.
With all that in mind, let's get to the top 50 free agents of the 2014 NBA offseason.
