Report Card Grades for the Top 2014 NBA Free-Agent Signings

Not every free-agent signing made during the NBA's frenetic offseason is a good one. 

Then again, it sure seemed as though the league was getting smarter during the frenzy of the summer of 2014, as the overpays largely involved role players and shooters. Many of those even made sense given the relevant rosters and team options included in contracts. 

Fear not, though. I'm not handing out straight A's, much as I'm sure the league's GMs would love my across-the-board approval. 

Given the length and size of the contracts, as well as the fits of some of these players, not every marquee signing made sense this offseason. Some were excellent, the majority were quality deals and a select few stood out in a negative way. 

That said, let's avoid discussing the order of this countdown. It's taken straight out of Bleacher Report's D.J. Foster's rankings of the top 50 free agents, with those who haven't signed removed from this particular article. 

Indulge me, and let's have the focus center around the merits of each signing, or lack thereof, not the order in which these 20 players appear.
