The Best and Worst 2014 NBA Free-Agent Signings

If only every general manager in the NBA could make one perfect signing after another...

Parity would abound (to some extent, at least), players would be perfectly valued when looking at their contracts and everyone would fit in flawlessly with the system and roster they're either joining or remaining in.

Sadly, though, that's not how professional basketball works. 

This offseason has been no different, even if it seemed like most GMs made more savvy signings than we've seen in the past. There's no shortage of great deals and bargains struck this summer, while it's harder to find even five contracts that stand out as the worst of the bunch. 

When breaking down the best and the worst of the summer, a lot matters. Fit comes into play, as does the length of the deal and the money that will be paid out to the player in question over the course of the contract. Age, playing style, the roster already in place, the future plans of the team and so much more all enter the equation.

Remember, these are determined from the perspective of the team. The players receiving the worst contracts are making out like bandits, after all.
