NBA Free Agency 2012: Acquisitions with the Biggest Immediate Upside

This summer has been a busy one in terms of NBA free agency, and after the many signings, I'd bet that multiple teams are beyond excited going into next season. For the first time in what seems like decades, teams went into free agency looking to improve themselves and not just sign players on impulse.

By bringing in players with an immediate upside, a better future has been insured for some franchises.

One move that sticks out, in my opinion, is the Miami Heat bringing in veteran sharpshooter Ray Allen.  This may not seem like much of a signing, as the team is fresh off a championship and already has its legendary Big Three, but trust me: Allen is going to put Miami in a prime position to repeat as champions.

Similarly, the Knicks have also had a productive offseason, and as a fan of them, I can't wait for the season to start. Of course, let's not forget about the other signings teams made that will immediately pay off.
