Late Signees Who Made It To Opening Night

August 13 at 4:35pm CDT By Chuck Myron

The heavy rush of free agency is over, but many teams have plenty of work left before their rosters are finalized. More than two dozen players signed between this time last year and the end of September, when training camps begin, made it to opening night in 2013. That doesn’t count all the signees whom teams released before the preseason was over, nor does it count those who made it to opening night with another team if they were released in October. Draft picks from 2013 don’t figure into the calculation, either.

The list of signings that do fit the criteria is below. It includes sought-after players, like Nikola Pekovic, just as such a list for this year’s late signees would have Eric Bledsoe and Greg Monroe on it. There are also names, like Toure’ Murry and Michael Beasley, who figure to repeat as late-season signees this year, too. The date listed is when the team formally announced the signing or the transaction otherwise became official, according to the RealGM transactions log.
