It feels like an eternity ago that the biggest names on the free agency board decided where they'll be next season. What's left at this stage of the offseason are mostly less impactful free agents, albeit ones who can still contribute to teams in need of shooting, playmaking or defense.

From Dwyane Wade to Jarrett Jack, here are the five best unrestricted free agents still available...

Dwyane Wade

Season stats: 11.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.9 steals per game

What he brings: Playmaking

Wade isn't the player he once was, but the future Hall of Famer still has some gas left in the tank. He looked like a Sixth Man of the Year candidate in the early part of the 2017-18 season and gave the Heat a much-needed scoring punch off the bench in the playoffs with 16.6 points per game.

Jamal Crawford

Season stats: 10.3 points, 2.3 assists, 1.2 rebounds, 1.3 3-pointers per game

What he brings: Microwave scoring

Crawford is a walking bucket-getter who can be relied on to score double-figures off the bench. His efficiency dropped last season - something to be expected at his age - but he still made 37.6 percent of his catch-and-shoot 3-point attempts and 41.4 percent of his 2-point pull-up attempts.

David West

Season stats: 6.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.0 blocks per game

What he brings: Stability off the bench

Though he's contemplating retirement, West can make an impact off the bench as a midrange shooter and a playmaker from the elbows. With an average of 5.0 assists per 36 minutes last season, the only Warriors who set their teammates up more frequently than the two-time champion were Draymond Green, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant.

Nick Young

Season stats: 7.3 points, 1.6 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 1.5 3-pointers per game

What he brings: 3-point shooting

Young didn't have as big of a role on the Warriors as some expected, but he was a knockdown shooter when he was on the court. According to NBA.com, the veteran made 39.6 percent of his catch-and-shoot 3-point attempts during the regular season. He converted those shots at a similar rate in the postseason.

Jarrett Jack

Season stats: 7.5 points, 5.6 assists, 3.1 rebounds, 0.6 steals per game

What he brings: Minutes at point guard

Teams in need of a backup point guard might be interested in Jack. The 34-year-old started in 56 games for the Knicks last season and proved that he can still create his own shot in making 41.9 percent of his 2-point pull-ups. He was also a decent playmaker for others, dishing out 10.2 potential assists per game.

Honorable mention

Ty Lawson - Lawson joined the Wizards in time for the playoffs and almost recorded a double-double in his debut.

Corey Brewer - Brewer finished last season with the Thunder, knocking down 34.3 percent of his 3-point attempts in 18 games.

Joe Johnson - Johnson is a season removed from a strong playoff run as a member of the Jazz.
