And here are the best free agents PGs, SGs, and SFs left on the market and my estimate of their fair market price:

PGs:

Eric Bledsoe -- $13M-14M a year; Jameer Nelson -- $3M-5M; Ramon Sessions -- $3M-5M; Jerryd Bayless -- $3M-4M; Mo Williams -- $2M-3M; Aaron Brooks -- minimum salary - BAE ($2M); Luke Ridnour -- minimum salary - BAE

SGs:

Lance Stephenson -- $9M-11M a year; Rodney Stuckey -- $3M-5M; Ray Allen -- min. - mini-MLE ($3.5M+); Jimmer Fredette -- min. - BAE ($2M); Rip Hamilton -- min. - BAE; Marshon Brooks -- min. - BAE; Shannon Brown -- min. - BAE

SFs:

Evan Turner -- $5M-7M a year; Shawn Marion -- $3-5M a year; Mike Miller -- $3-4M a year; Al-Farouq Aminu -- $2M-3M; Michael Beasley -- min. - BAE ($2M); Xavier Henry -- min. - BAE; Wes Johnson -- min. - BAE; Jordan Hamilton -- min. - BAE; Rashard Lewis -- BAE; Dante Cunningham -- BAE

Obviously the list is bigger than this, but many of those not mentioned are scrubs, old, or unlikely to get anything more than a minimum salary from a team. I've also left off any one who's signed or very close to signing.

Also, EVERYONE SHOULD WATCH THE PETE MARAVICH ESPN DOCUMENTARY.
