Nearly all of the NBA's 2014 free agents have picked their homes, but for these select few, they are still searching for the place they will play in the 2014-15 season and beyond. For some, being a restricted free agent has hindered their ability to find a team, but for other longtime veterans, they are looking for the perfect fit while nearing the end of their careers.
Blatche is a versatile and serviceable big-man who is still on the market after averaging 11.2 points and 5.3 rebounds for the Brooklyn Nets last season. His questionable attitude is probably keeping him from receiving a multi-year deal, but he could really help a team that is looking to go deep into the playoffs.
Headed into his 16th NBA season, Marion can still score, rebound and defend, and he will likely end up signing with a contender. The signing of Chandler Parsons signaled the end of Marion's time in Dallas. Last season, Marion averaged 10.4 points and 6.5 rebounds while shooting 48 percent from the field and 36 percent from three.
Allen is currently deciding whether to retire, return to Miami or join LeBron James in Cleveland. Last season with the Heat, Allen shot 44 percent from the floor and 38 percent from three. As the league's all-time leading three-point shooter, Allen has nothing left to prove, but making one last run at a championship has to be enticing for the 39-year-old.
Monroe is one of the best young big-men in the NBA, and he averaged 15.2 points and 9.3 rebounds last season with off-the-charts potential. At the start of free agency, it was thought that someone would offer the restricted free agent a max-contract, but instead he is still in free agency limbo.
By far the best remaining free agent, Bledsoe is seeking a max-deal and the Phoenix Suns are offering up a four-year, $ 48 million deal, leaving the two at an impasse. Bledsoe was limited to 43 games last season, where he averaged 17.7 points, 5.5 assists and 4.7 rebounds while shooting 48 percent from the field and 39 from three. As a restricted free agent, no team has signed Bledsoe to an offer sheet, but the Suns are likely to match any offer.
