Could Tony Allen help a contender? Noah Graham/Getty Images

More than a month into free agency, the top remaining unsigned players are all restricted free agents: JaMychal Green (Memphis Grizzlies) Nikola Mirotic (Chicago Bulls), Nerlens Noel (Dallas Mavericks), Mason Plumlee (Denver Nuggets).

With the Philadelphia 76ers hording their remaining cap space for a possible Robert Covington extension (which would also involve renegotiating to pay him more in 2017-18) and no other team having more than $8 million in cap space, no market-value offer sheets appear to be forthcoming for the restricted free agents. So the only question is whether they can leverage the threat of taking a one-year qualifying offer and returning to the market next summer as unrestricted free agents into getting a long-term deal from their current teams.

When it comes to the remaining unrestricted free agents, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. With teams now looking to fill out specific needs for their roster, let's take a look at which free agents might fit best.
