NBA Free Agency 2016: An overview of available guards

New, comments

The Detroit Pistons biggest need is a quality, cheap backup point guard.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Free Agency starts on Friday. By most accounts, a backup point guard is the Pistons biggest need. In an effort to keep you wonderful readers from having to do too much legwork, we've gathered some preliminary data on this years guard free agent pool.

The list of available guards was retrieved from NBA.com's Free Agent Tracker. Some of the "guards" they have listed may be more small forwards than guards, and it does not differentiate which guards are primarily point guards. All statistical, height, weight, and salary data was retrieved from Basketball Reference. Each player's name is a link to their Basketball Reference page. The table is sorted by experience, then age, and then whether the player is restricted (highlighted) or not.
