USA TODAY Sports

While it seems very likely that most of the top members of the 2014 NBA free-agent class will end up staying put with their original teams, that doesn't mean there still won't be plenty of value to be had this offseason.

Teams may have to dig a little deeper, but there are multiple quality rotation players flying under the radar in this year's free agency. The focus may not be on them, but as the San Antonio Spurs showed us this season, role players like Boris Diaw, Patty Mills and other bargain-bin finds can swing the outcome of a series.

With that in mind, you'll likely notice a common theme throughout the list. Most of these players will be specialists of some sort, and there will be a big emphasis placed on shooting. That's the skill that's in highest demand as teams look to space the floor, and this list will reflect that.

But how do we define "sleepers" in free agency? We'll use the qualifier that every player's last salary had to be below the mid-level exception ($5.5 million) last season, and that no player can be listed in the top 35 of this list, via HoopsHype.com.
