5 NBA Stars Still Available At A Bargain Price

Now let’s be clear here, none of these 5 players are going to make your fan base run out and buy season tickets, they are bargains, not steals. Most of them are the best players on a team’s second units. These are guys that are good, guys that can still play a role on established teams or guys who can mentor young players on young teams. They are not taking a four seed to a number one seed, but these are players who could possibly take the right eight or nine seed and get them to the six or seventh seed and possibly at least respectability or best case scenario, one play-off series win.

DWYANE WADE

If he returns to Miami — and that’s no lock — the sense is that it’ll be for $5 million. A Hall of Famer who can still play and willingly accepts a bench role for small money is a steal, especially when considering how much he means to Heat fans. He played in 67 games last year and still averaged over 11 points and 28.8% three point field goal percentage, which is right in line with his career average.

VINCE CARTER

He’ll almost certainly get the veteran’s minimum from a good team, give it good minutes off the bench and use his experience — the 41-year-old has basically spent half his life in the NBA — to become the sage of whatever locker room he calls home next season. If he doesn’t score a point, he’ll still be worth the $2.4 million. His three point field goal percentage is higher than Wade’s at 34.5% but his points per game are much lower at just over 5.

MICHAEL BEASLEY

He was really good at times for a really bad Knicks team last season. And he’s still a gifted scorer. Put him on a good team, and the second unit will immediately get better. He is a left handed shooter who impressively played in 74 games averaged 13.2 points and has a higher three point field goal percentage at 39.5%.

MARCUS SMART

Many would be surprised if Boston lets the restricted free agent go elsewhere, and Smart’s value to the Celtics is clear. But it’s been one of the soap operas of this summer: What is taking so long? Smart improved on most of his career numbers last season. He improved in points per game, assists, field goal percentage, and three point field goal percentage.

DIRK NOWITZKI

He’s “out there” on paper only. Nowitzki is eventually going back to Dallas, probably for about $5 million once again, but it’s impossible to list NBA bargains and not include him. He’ll spend what may be his final NBA season grooming Luka Doncic. The best player in Mavs history is about to become the best mentor in Mavs history.
