Now with all the major free agents are signed and already being slotted on thier teams for season previews, we still have many solid players without a contract. Remember, a NBA team is not only the superstars like Kevin Garnett and LeBron James but past champions had players like James Posey and Jason Kapono coming off the bench to fill a solid bench role. Here are just some of the top free agents left on the market
Rasual Butler ( 2009 team: Clippers)
Butler isn’t a starter by any means. He could be a very solid scorer off the bench. At 31, he did produce back to back 11 point seasons.
Craig Smith (2009 team: Clippers)
A young, tough nosed player who could provide a strong inside presence. He’s undersized but could produced 11 points and 3 rebounds last season in limited minutes.
Carlos Arroyo (2009 team: Heat)
Arroyo is a solid backup point guard. He averaged 6 points and 3 assists in 22 minutes for Miami last season, even taking away the starting job from Mario Chalmers.
Matt Barnes (2009 team: Magic)
Spot starter, strong defender and a solid 3 point shooter. Barnes is also a decent rebounder. Barnes could be someone similar to Tony Allen was for Boston in the 2008 championship season.
Chris Hunter (2009 team: Warriors)
He’s not a big name like anyone else on the roster but Hunter is a solid post defender and could help a team who needs some grit inside. He won’t provide alot of points (4 points in 2009) but is tough around the basket.
