Some trips to the bank aren't as productive as they should be.

Overpaid players abound in the NBA, especially after this summer's free-agency extravaganza. Plenty of players are earning more than they should, cashing checks they don't—and possibly won't ever—deserve.

Only we already identified those players. It's time to explore the other side of the spectrum.

For every price-gouging contract, there is a cost-defying bargain—a player who isn't quite making what he should. The production of these players exceeds their salary. Their on-court value demands they be paid more.

Except they won't be. 

Discounts happen for whatever reason, be it by choice or necessity. This summer saw plenty of free agents sign below-market contracts. And while their paychecks won't break the bank, their past performances suggest they should.

What would happen if we assembled a team of these underpriced talents? What would it look like? How many championships would it win? Who would be on it?

We're about to find out.

Think of this roster not as a what's what of the most improperly low-balled pacts, but as a comprehensive record highlighting the best deals at every position—contracts that ultimately fall short of matching their owner's value.
