Jerryd Bayless, set to be an unrestricted free agent, is a true offensive spark plug off the bench. Overall, Bayless averaged 9.3 points, 2.7 assists and shot 36 percent from beyond the arc. With Boston, he averaged 10.1 points, 3.1 assists and shot 40 percent from deep. Bayless is a valuable role player and provides instant offense off the bench. Here are five teams who could use his services.

Bayless' numbers were solid in his stint in Boston. He and Rajon Rondo played extremely well together on offense. Boston needs perimeter shooting and offense off the bench; Bayless provides just that. If the Celtics are serious contenders next season, Bayless should be brought back on board.

4. Charlotte Hornets

The Hornets need offense in their back court, particularly guards that can shoot. Bayless fits that bill well. Kemba Walker is the only point guard under contract and he would benefit from having a sharp shooter like Bayless backing him up. He and Gary Neal would be a deadly shooting combination off the bench. This would be a good move for Charlotte.

3. Houston Rockets

The Rockets are always looking to add shooters around Dwight Howard and James Harden. Bayless could be a good fit at the shooting guard position and get plenty of open looks behind the arc. Houston would not regret bringing Bayless aboard.

2. Miami Heat

Like the Rockets, Miami likes to place three-point shooters around LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. With Mario Chalmers set to be a free agent, Bayless would not be a bad option. He plays the point guard position, as well as the shooting guard position. James would certainly find Bayless on the perimeter for open jumpers throughout the season.

Derrick Rose is the only point guard under contract and he isn't even a lock to be ready next season. Bayless would add depth to the point guard and shooting guard positions, as well as add much-needed perimeter shooting for Chicago.
