Best Bargain-Bin NBA 2014 Free-Agency Options for LA Clippers
USA TODAY Sports

For the most part, the work for the Los Angeles Clippers this offseason is likely done. The Clippers were already on the brink of being a title contender with the league's best offense in terms of efficiency, per NBA.com/Stats, so there wasn't any big adjustments necessary.

With that being said, the Clippers did go out and get two solid rotation players in Spencer Hawes (mid-level exception) and Jordan Farmar (biannual exception). Hawes should fill the elusive need for a third big man Los Angeles has lacked for quite some time, and Farmar will take Darren Collison's place as a better perimeter-shooting backup point guard.

With the hard cap set due to Hawes signing for the mid-level exception, the most likely scenario for the Clippers to add talent is via minimum contracts. In that regard, the Clippers have to hope that free agents follow Hawes' example, as he told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports Friday night:

Even taking a little less money, this opportunity was too exciting to pass up. I've had a taste of the playoffs before, but being a part of this team will be just incredible.

You get to a point where you really realize what's important, and I was thinking: "What would my 12-year-old self have done? What would he prioritize?" It was this opportunity and what they're building with the Clippers.

As a legitimate championship contender with a great point guard and respected coach, the Clippers should have no problem attracting veterans to the sunny skies of Los Angeles.

Let's take a look at five potential bargain-bin signings the Clippers might be able to land for the minimum.
