#2 Kyle Korver

Kyle Korver is one of the best three-point shooters in the game. He is a career 43% shooter from the three-point line and averages at least two 3Ps a game. He provided for catch-and-shoot threes off the bench for the Milwaukee Bucks, a team that thrives in kick-out passes from the paint to open shooters. He is the best shooter available in NBA free agency and any team that needs to improve their shooting should look towards signing Korver.

Every team needs shooting and during crunch time, a player like Korver will get his team a three-pointer.

Stats in 2019-20: 6.7 PPG | 1.2 APG | 2.1 RPG | 0.2 BPG | 0.4 SPG

#3 Quinn Cook

Quinn Cook was waived by the LA Lakers earlier in the offseason. He is a decent three-point shooter and has quick handles. Cook had one of his best seasons with the Golden State Warriors in 2018 when he averaged 9.5 points per game and started in 18 games when Stephen Curry was injured.

He can be the backup point guard for a team and provide them with shooting off the bench. An interesting name in NBA free agency, Cook is also a 2-time NBA Champion so he is familiar with high playoff pressure.

#4 Isaiah Thomas

Isaiah Thomas is a former two-time All-Star and was a brilliant point guard for the Boston Celtics often dropping 40 and 50 points in games. However, after dealing with injury issues he isn't quite his past self but has now recovered and is looking to make a comeback in NBA free agency 2020. Thomas played 40 games for the Washington Wizards last season and averaged in 12.2 points per game.

Isaiah Thomas is a great choice for a backup point guard and still has a lot of his scoring ability with him. He could be a key role player for any team and is a good three-point shooter as well.

Stats in 2019-20: 5.1 PPG | 1.1 APG | 1.2 RPG | 0.0 BPG | 0.3 SPG

#5 Emmanuel Mudiay

Emmanuel Mudiay was considered a strange signing by the Utah Jazz in NBA free agency last year but he proved many doubters wrong in his first 48 games for the team. He was also a fairly consistent scorer for the Knicks averaging career highs with a true shooting percentage of 53.1%

Emmanuel is ideal for a backup guard who will contribute 10 points per game while relieving the starter guards of minutes and some of the pressure. Mudiay would be a good signing for any team in NBA free agency.

Stats in 2019-20: 7.3 PPG | 2.1 APG | 2.3 RPG | 0.2 BPG | 0.4 SPG
