1. David West

Though this free agent signing didn't come in the summer, it was perhaps one of the most lucrative acquisitions of 2011. In the final month of that year, the power forward would ink a $20 million deal that would make him a Pacer for at least the next two seasons.

Unfortunately, West would never match his scoring average of 20 points a game like he achieved a few times with New Orleans. He did regularly become a better passer as he averaged 3.4 assists in his final year with the Pacers.

West started in every game during his four seasons for Indiana. He helped the Pacers make three deep playoff runs in a row. During this stretch, the veteran big man averaged at least 15 points a game on at least 44% from the field during the postseason.

During the 2012-2013 NBA season, West collected 14 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists in a game against the Charlotte Bobcats. This would be his first career triple-double. 

West would sign a second contract to remain with the Indiana Pacers for three years and $36.6 million. Two summers later, he opted out and joined the San Antonio Spurs for one season. West wrapped up his career playing his final two seasons for the Golden State Warriors where he became an NBA champion both times.

As we all know, July 1st typically brings on the free agency period in the NBA. Players without contracts are in search of a new deal and sometimes that comes with a new home.
