While much of the focus of the NBA Offseason is about stars changing teams, there isnt necessarily a dramatic impact, say to LeBron James production going from Miami to Cleveland. Leaving aside the possibility of more changes to come with the Cavaliers roster, there isnt an obvious reason that James numbers should be significantly different next season. His greatness will travel. On the other hand, there are some players that are looking at better opportunities next year, with the possibility of more playing time and touches leading to potentially better production. Here are 10 guys that could have bigger roles with their respective clubs next season: Chris Bosh, C, Miami - Wooed by the Rockets, Bosh decided to return to the Heat, even in the wake of LeBron James departure. Sure, newcomers Luol Deng and Josh McRoberts will have big roles in the frontcourt, but if anyone is going to have a bigger role in LeBrons absence, doesnt it have to be Bosh? He had 12.1 field goal attempts per game last season, his fewest since his rookie year (2003-2004!) and this while hes become a more effective shooter, with a career-best 55.5% effective field goal percentage, dramatically increasing his three-point attempts to 4.5 per game. Thats up from 1.6 per game, which had been a career-best, the year before. Sure, there wont be as many open threes if Deng is handling the ball instead of LeBron, but it should come as no surprise if Bosh sees his field goal attempts go back to 15-16 per game and he gets back over 20 points per game. Darren Collison, PG, Sacramento - After Isaiah Thomas departed for Phoenix, Collison moved north from the Clippers to take the Kings starting point guard job. Collison played a career-low 25.9 minutes per game last season, yet was effective enough, scoring 11.4 points and dishing 3.7 assists per game. With presumably more minutes and possibly more shots (Thomas was one of three Kings to average more than 15 field goal attempts per game), 26-year-old Collison is in position to have his numbers bounce back signfiicantly this season. Lance Stephenson, SG, Charlotte - Moving from starting shooting guard in Indiana to starting shooting guard in Charlotte doesnt necessarily mean a big change, but the Hornets let Gary Neal jack up 12.8 shots per game last season while shooting 35.3% from the field. Why not give those looks to Stephenson, who shot a career-best 49.1% from the field, averaging a career-high 14.1 points, 7.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game with the Pacers last year. Jordan Hill, C, L.A. Lakers - There are newcomers at power forward for the Lakers, including Carlos Boozer, Julius Randle and Ed Davis and, between them, they will eat some minutes in the middle, but Hill is looking at a prime opportunity to start for the Lakers, a chance to build on a great finish to last season, when he averaged 15.9 points, 9.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game in March and April. Hill shot a career-best 54.9% from the field last year and played more than 20 minutes per game for the first time in his career. If he can maintain that efficiency, he could be a real asset over 28-30 minutes per game as a starter. Patrick Beverley, PG, Houston - With the Rockets sending Jeremy Lin to to the Lakers, Beverley is head-and-shoulders above his competition for playing time at the point with the Rockets. Beverley may not play a bunch more, than the 31 minutes a night he averaged last season, but there are more touches available and if Beverley takes an extra couple shots per game and dishes a few more assists, he will continue on his Andrei Kirilenko, SF, Brooklyn - A 33-year-old forward coming off a season in which he averaged 5.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game, while playing a career-low 19 minutes per game, Kirilenko will have to compete with younger Euro forwards Sergey Karasev and Bojan Bogdanovic for playing time but, as an established NBA player, Kirilenko should have first crack at replacing Paul Pierce in the starting lineup. With significant playing time, Kirilenko has an opportunity for something resembling a bounceback season. Donatas Motiejunas, PF, Houston - One other reason that the Rockets should have some shots available is that they let Chandler Parsons go to Dallas and only James Harden (16.5) had more than Parsons 13.3 field goal attempts per game. With a thinned-out roster, because they were trying to lure a premier free agent, there is opportunity in Houston for someone like Motiejunas, a 23-year-old left-handed 7-footer who has put up 5.6 points and 3.0 rebounds in a little over 14 minutes per game through two NBA seasons. Motiejunas had a strong showing in the Las Vegas Summer League so maybe hell find his way into a regular spot in the Houston rotation and put up some decent numbers as a result. Cody Zeller, PF, Charlotte - With Josh McRoberts moving on, there is opportunity available in the Hornets frontcourt and last years fourth overall pick, Zeller, should have the edge over this years ninth overall pick, Noah Vonleh, for a spot in the starting lineup. Zeller started slowly as a rookie, shooting 38.0% from the field before the All-Star break, but he hit 50.7% from the field after the break, averaging 7.7 points and 4.8 rebounds per game in 18.3 minutes per game. If Zeller is a starter, 12 (points per game) and 8 (rebounds per game) should be possible. Anthony Morrow, SG, Oklahoma City - While the Thunder are looking at a starting lineup that will effectively include two point guards, Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson, there should be a regular rotation role for Morrow, a three-point bomber who hit 45.1% from beyond the arc last season and has made 42.8% on threes for his career. Morrow played under 19 minutes per game in New Orleans last season, but effectively takes over a spot from Thabo Sefolosha, who was playing 26 minutes per game for the Thunder last year. Some of those minutes would figure go to Jackson, but if Morrow plays 24 minutes a game, he could score in double figures. Hollis Thompson, SF, Philadelphia - 23-year-old Thompson started 41 games for the Sixers last season, averaging 6.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. An undrafted free agent out of Georgetown, Thompson made 40.1% of his three-pointers as a rookie and there just arent that many great offensive options for the 76ers. Once Michael Carter-Williams and Thaddeus Young get theirs, why couldnt Thompson double last years 4.8 field goal attempts per game?

Ilya Bryzgalov in Las Vegas is a reality show waiting to happen. Is it now official? Darren Dreger - Bryzgalov has agreed to attend the training camp of the ECHLs Las Vegas Wranglers. He passed the physical so hes good to go. It doesnt mean a whole lot more than he wants to continue to work out and wait for an opportunity, perhaps for a job to open up in the NHL - which is quit possible. Weve seen NHL players do this in the past; most recently Cody Franson of the Toronto Maple Leafs during his contract stalemate. Bryzgalov has agreed to at least attend training camp in Las Vegas. Is Patrick Roy on the hook for paying his fine? Bob McKenzie - A common practice in the NHL when we hear about a coach being fined $10,000 is that they dont actually cash the cheque. They put it in a security deposit and its basically a good behavior bond. If you dont act up in the next six months or a year, you get the money back. But in this particular case, because Patrick Roy is such a high profile guy and because there was such physical contact with that partition that went down - and almost onto Bruce Boudreau - my understanding is that Roy is actually out of pocket by $10,000. He got a lot of attention from a lot of the coaches in the NHL; Ken Hitchcock saying that was a junior hockey move. One of the coaches I talked to said that if there was a lot of chirping involved - which was alleged but Roy denied - that he would take three steps. No. 1: Send a little note from trainer to trainer telling the guy to calm down. No. 2: Go over to the boards or the bench and tell him to calm down. No. 3: Set up a private meeting at a barn or a ring and settle your differences. Is head coach Peter Laviolette on the hot seat in Philadelphia? Dreger - Winning cures all, but the Flyers did not play well in the preseason and it drags back to the postseason where things did not bode well for the Flyers. Theres a sense of fear of impending doom for some around the organization and without question Laviolette is in trouble. Some believe that if things dont turn around for the Flyers organization and they dont start winning at the 10-15 game mark that Laviolette will be replaced. And you could perhaps look higher up the food chain too, where you find general manager Paul Holmgren and Ron Hextall. Craig ;Berubes name has been thrown around as a potential replacement, so hes clearly in the system.dddddddddddd What happened to Jonathan Drouins expectations in Tampa Bay? Pierre LeBrun - It surprised me and a lot of other people that he was sent back to the juniors, but not if you spoke to some scouts that watched him in preseason. One of the things that I heard from them is that he didnt have a lot of pace in his game in the preseason. He tried to beat players from a stand-still and there was also some questions about his conditioning from an NHL standpoint. But lets remember something. This guy - just two years ago - was playing midget hockey and so this would have been quit a jump for him. Two years ago, another team in Florida - the Panthers with Jonathan Huberdeau - also picked third overall and he was sent back to junior. A year later, he wins the Calder Trophy in the NHL. The same thing could happen to Drouin, so no alarm here. But obviously, he did not have a great camp. Are you surprised the Sedin twins dont have new contracts? McKenzie - Im a little surprised that the season is opening up for the Canucks and the Sedin twins have not been signed to an extension. Thats not to suggest that theres a huge alarm here, but by the same token its not to suggest things are going swimmingly either. I thought the entire training camp would have given agent JP Barry and Canucks general manager Mike Gillis an opportunity to put this thing to bed and the fact that it hasnt happened yet suggests to me that term is very much an issue. The Sedins will be 34 when an extension kicks in and I suspect theyre probably looking for at least a five-year deal and the Canucks want something shorter. I think with them taking hometown discounts on the last deal at $6.01 million, theyre looking way north of that for a pretty big raise. LeBrun - Not nearly as much attention - maybe because of the market he plays in - but theres Joe Thornton, also a high profile UFA at the end of the season. The expectation is that his camp will circle back to the San Jose Sharks in the very near future to start that process. But its not expected to be something thats going to be a distraction for Thornton or whether theres a deadline to this thing. Theyll get it done during the season. Theres early trade talk with Anaheim? Dreger - Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray is looking for a defenceman and its believed Toronto, Pittsburgh and maybe Philadelphia are involved. They want a young defenceman and may give up a young forward in return.
