We’re getting down to the bottom of the barrel for the 2014 free-agency period, as many teams have filled out their rosters and are already looking forward to training camp.
While some big names are still out there, including young studs like Greg Monroe and Eric Bledsoe, the middle class of free agency has basically been wiped out. What you have left now, for the most part, are guys who are just looking to latch on with a team.
There are still some useful rotation players out there, however. Whether they’re weighing offers or simply not drumming up enough interest is difficult to say, but you’d think the top three at each position will all find homes relatively quickly.
For the sake of this exercise, we’ll rank players based on who can contribute most to a team next year in the short term, factoring in who is most likely to get signed. For example, there may be a young player like Seth Curry who could potentially be better than Rodney Stuckey down the line, but Stuckey is more likely to get an NBA job and minutes next year.
Let’s take a look at the top three remaining players at each position for teams that still have offseason needs.
