Garrett Temple: 2 years, $9.8 million (Brooklyn Nets)

Between Kyrie Irving, Spencer Dinwiddie, Caris LeVert and even Joe Harris, the guard position is fully stocked for the Brooklyn Nets. However, getting such great value in a low-cost signing like Garrett Temple can hardly be seen as a problem, especially for a team that will be missing Kevin Durant for the entire 2019-20 season.

Temple is a quality, underrated two-way player in this league, and though his opportunities were limited in a crowded Los Angeles Clippers backcourt, he proved himself in his 59 games with the Memphis Grizzlies, averaging a career-high 9.4 points per game on 35.2 percent shooting from distance.

Obviously this is just a depth move, and it’s unknown how much time Temple will actually see on this revamped roster, but at such a manageable price using the room exception, it’s hard to fault general manager Sean Marks too much here.

Grade: A-
