NBA fans have plenty of free-agent signings to rave and rant about. The Miami Heat were clever enough to sign Ray Allen for just $3 million. The Houston Rockets threw a combined $50 million over three years at Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik, two players who are worth nothing more than the seventh or eighth spot on a roster.

In between the Allen end and the Lin/Asik ends of the spectrum is a wide array of signings. Some of them bring value, others raise questions.

The offseason saw particular deals that were intended to either tweak a team's roster or bolster its competitive potential. Signings of rotational scorers like Courtney Lee and Jerryd Bayless helped their respective team gain a shooting edge.

Deals to pick up point guards like Goran Dragic and D.J. Augustin were made to alter a team's trajectory.

Which signing was the best? Which brought the greatest value?

Follow along to see the awards that answer these and several other questions.
