2014 NBA free agency has reached a standstill, with only a few high-profile players still left on the market. With most of the action in the past, let's take a look at the five most underrated, good signings of the period.

The Golden State Warriors were terrible in 2013-14 whenever Stephen Curry was on the bench, particularly at the offensive end. Signing Shaun Livingston to a three-year, $16.63 million deal filled a blatant hole at the backup point guard position, and it came at a more than affordable price. Livingston could have gotten more than that from another team.

The Los Angeles Lakers managed to get Ed Davis to agree to a bizarrely cheap deal for two years and just $2 million. Davis is one of the best backup power forwards in the NBA and put up 13.4 points and 9.8 rebounds per 36 minutes last season. It's unclear why he signed so cheap, but a steal is a steal.

3. Vince Carter, Memphis Grizzlies

Three years and $12M for Vince Carter is a great move by the shooting-starved Memphis Grizzlies, who needed to find a replacement for Mike Miller. Carter has shot 40 percent from deep over the past two seasons and averaged 17.6 points per 36 minutes in 2013-14. On a team that is always looking for more scoring punch, Carter at that price is a very good signing.

2. Devin Harris, Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks re-signed Devin Harris to a four-year deal worth $16.5 million, one of the best deals in free agency to date. Harris has the talent and numbers of a starter, but he'll continue to provide plenty of scoring and facilitation off the bench for the Mavericks for the foreseeable future at quite an inexpensive price.

Isaiah Thomas is one of the league's best offensive point guards and should fit in brilliantly with the Phoenix Suns' fast-paced system. Four years and $27 million is a huge discount for Thomas, whose game really warrants a pretty hefty double-digit annual salary.
