Honorable Mentions

Two names that are fringe guys to consider are going to be former Jazzmen Joe Ingles and Jae Crowder. Ingles, currently with the Orlando Magic, is technically under contract for next season, but that's only a team option and at 36 years old, they may not want to pick up his $11 million contract.

He can still pass, shoot, and rebound, and played more games at 36 than he did in the three seasons prior. So he can still add value to a club. As he was never really athletic, to begin with, he hasn't really lost a lot of steps. He's a cerebral player and as long as his body holds up, he can still go.

Crowder is a different situation entirely, however. While Ingles, despite his age, can still play good defense, Crowder may not be able to. Crowder is a similiar catch-all type of player that Ingles is, but he's showing signs of slowing down. His three-point shot fellow nearly 90 points from 44% in 2023 to 35% in 2024.

His defensive efficacy has also fallen, going from a +2.4 in 2021-2022 to a +1.1 in 2022-2023, to a 0.0 in 2023-2024. He may be younger than Ingles, but Crowder is currently aging faster. It may just be the byproduct of being on a lackluster Milwaukee Bucks team but he does appear to be regressing.
