Ranking the NBA's Top 5 Value Signings of the Offseason

Mikhail Prokhorov has a lot to smile about this offseason with the stars he's brought in, but it's one of his smaller deals that might be the most valuable.

This summer has been full of big names signing big contracts. Stars like Dwight Howard and Chris Paul signed big deals, and guys like Al Jefferson and Andre Iguodala got the big bucks as well. 

But as important as those big names are, oftentimes the supporting cast is just as important. A team needs the right kinds of players to surround their star for the team to be successful.

And that's where these rankings come in. You will not find any Howards or Pauls. But you will find some of the best value deals of the summer. As in low-cost deals that will yield high margins for the teams.

A bit confused? Think Ray Allen signing with the Heat last summer. Or Tony Allen making $3.3 million last year. Maybe Danny Green and his $3.5 million salary. These aren't the players who carry a team, but their contributions can far outweigh their contracts.

So here we go, counting down the five best value signings of the NBA offseason. And don't kid yourself that these additions aren't important. LeBron and the Heat can vouch for just how integral they can be.
