Setting the Market for Key Remaining 2014 NBA Free Agents
USA TODAY Sports

The 2014 free-agency period hasn't had the fireworks or instant gratification of past years, as it seems like every major player and team is waiting to see what LeBron James will do and the domino effect that will have on the market.

In some ways, James will set the market for everyone else because his choice can change the landscape of the league. While we know that James is absolutely worth the max and that his price won't change unless he decides to take less, the future of multiple teams and marquee players can be impacted by his decision.

Even with that being the case, we can reasonably predict the price range and set the market for the remaining 2014 free agents based on what we've seen so far. Jodie Meeks signing with the Detroit Pistons for more than the mid-level exception certainly set a market for shooters, and Kyle Lowry's deal worth $12 million a season established the price range for near-max unrestricted free agents. 

Using the salaries of players already signed and existing contracts throughout the league, let's set the market for the best remaining 2014 free agents according to category of player. 

 

All contract information is accurate as of July 8.
