Once LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and the NBA's biggest free-agent dominoes fall, the rate of signings and agreements across the Association figures to ramp up considerably.
But beyond tier-two talents such as Luol Deng, Trevor Ariza and Lance Stephenson, clubs throughout the league will be looking to fill out their rosters with a deep class of role players.
For instance, players such as Jordan Hill and P.J. Tucker represent under-the-radar rotational talents who figure to be had at a relatively small cost compared to some of the summer's biggest signings.
And while they may not be considered game-changers, the moment contracts are signed, these sleepers can wind up playing crucial roles at a discount once the regular season gets underway.
What follows is a comprehensive look at a sleeper free-agent target for each team. However, when digesting this preview, consider that a given target can apply to more than one franchise, although there are no duplicate names mentioned here for the sake of expansive analysis.
As a hectic signing period gets underway, keep in mind that the targets listed are indicative of each team's positional and tactical needs.
