Unsigned free agents who could still help a contender: 2. Derrick Jones Jr.

Derrick Jones Jr. averaged 5 points and 2.4 rebounds in just 14 minutes last year with the Bulls. At 26 years old, he is still very much in his prime as a basketball player. But, if he progresses as a shooter, his value could increase dramatically.

An awesome athlete who understands how to make the most out of his absurd leaping ability,  Derrick Jones Jr is a constant lob threat thanks to his 6-foot-6 frame and 7-foot wingspan. In addition to being a constant presence in passing lanes, he is also a very effective weak-side rim protector.

This 26-year-old could be a valuable depth player off the bench for any contending team.
