How Blake impacts McCollum

Steve Blake must like Portland. The free agent point guard has signed a two-year, $4.2 million deal with the Trail Blazers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, meaning that he'll return to the Rose City for the third time in his NBA career.

Blake figures to serve as the primary backup to Damian Lillard at the point, which is the role free agent Mo Williams filled last season. The addition of the veteran guard should also directly impact C.J. McCollum.
