Underrated moves of the NBA offseason

Underrated moves of the NBA offseason

Although point guard wasn't exactly a need on draft night, first-round pick Darren Collison could give Coach Byron Scott some fairly cool little-guy stereo options against other teams that do the same.

Portland Trail Blazers sign Andre Miller

The Blazers already had a leader (remember Brandon Roy?), so don't expect the soft-spoken Miller to waltz in and take over. But he does possess the ability to initiate an offense, which frees up Roy to score.

Adding Miller does figure to subtract from Portland's ability to prevent opposing point guards from penetrating at will.

Toronto Raptors acquire Jarrett Jack

The signing of Turkoglu and drafting of DeMar DeRozan provided the big news in Toronto, but adding Jack to share time with Jose Calderon means the Raptors won't have to put Marcus Banks on the floor. That's a fine argument for any talk about making a playoff run.

Los Angeles Lakers re-sign Shannon Brown

Yeah, I am serious. Sure, bringing in Ron Artest and keeping Lamar Odom are the important maneuvers, but having Brown around to help Jordan Farmar spell Derek Fisher and rest Kobe Bryant could be really wise. Brown is a premium athlete and has enough wisdom to find shots within the context of the triangle offense.

He also remains engaged on defense, with the ability to guard two positions.
