NBA Free Agents 2011: 5 Most Attractive Free Agents Left on the Market

0 of 5

    With the start of the 2011-12 regular season less than a week away, there's not much left on the free-agent market for teams looking to add the final pieces for their opening day roster.

    Teams that may have been holding out possibly waited a bit too long.

    The pickings are slim, but here are the top five free agents remaining .

Samuel Dalembert

1 of 5

    There were a lot of big men on the market this year, and Dalembert was the odd man out.

    He's not going to get the big deal he was looking for, but he should find a home soon.

    The Houston Rockets have shown interest, and a return to Sacramento can't be ruled out after the Kings had to void the contract of Chuck Hayes.

Andrei Kirilenko

2 of 5

    There have been different reports lately on whether or not Kirilenko had reached a long-term deal with the New Jersey Nets, but he remains unsigned at the moment.

    Right now, if the Nets aren't interested, there doesn't seem to be much of a market for Kirilenko, who continues to seek as much as $9 million per year.

Kris Humphries

3 of 5

    Humphries had an interesting offseason to say the least, but it's odd that there isn't much of a market for him.

    He's still a guy that averaged a double-double a season ago and worst case scenario could serve as a valuable big man off the bench for several teams.

    It looks like the Nets are starting to show some interest in bringing him back, but if they do, it may impact the amount of money they can take back from the Orlando Magic if they are able to acquire Dwight Howard.

Michael Redd

4 of 5

    Redd is looking for a fresh start to prove he's recovered fully from a series of knee injuries, but at the moment there isn't a whole lot of takers.

    Right now, the Indiana Pacers are the only team he's been linked to, but they still make acquiring O.J. Mayo their top priority.

DeShawn Stevenson

5 of 5

    Stevenson brings value as a solid perimeter defender, if anything.

    He can also knock down a shot or two, so it's odd that he hasn't found a home yet.

    The Mavericks have the cap room to bring him back, but Stevenson doesn't seem interested.

    According to his agent, he's had a bunch of offers and should sign somewhere soon.
