Pre-FA Teams to look out for next season

Posted on: June 18, 2011 12:30 pm
I decided to choose 3 teams from each conference. Teams of course that weren't in the top 4 of either conference last season.

Eastern Conference:
Indiana Pacers-They have a bunch of cap room and they got a solid group coming back. I expect them to be back in the playoffs next season and a higher seed. Possibly 5th or 6th seed in the East. That is what I'm expecting.
New Jersey Nets-They have the money. Who knows who they bring in through FA? I expect them to fight for a final playoff spot.
New York Knicks of course-I wouldn't be surprised at all if they are in the top 4 teams in the East next season. They got the money to get whoever they want. Again I expect them to have one of the top 4 seeds in the East next season.

Western Conference:
Memphis Grizzlies-I expect them to shine if they do indeed resign Gasol which I expect them to do. Top 4 seeded team next season. You better believe it! Write it down. I expect a decline from LA and SA next season meaning of course they won't do as good as they did last season. Possible better playoff success, but not regular season. By postseason success I'm not meaning winning a championship of course.
Utah Jazz-With two picks in the lottery early first round. Plus hearing about them shopping Devin Harris. I think this team could compete for a playoff spot next season.
Portland Trail Blazers-Expecting that they are healthy....LOL! No I think they will finish with a better record and finish as one of the top 5 teams in the West. Andre Miller looks like he will be on the way out.

What teams do you expect to improve after last season? That people should be looking out for?

Pre-FA Teams to look out for next season

I can see West going anywhere. It is like who knows sorta thing. If I were NJ o...I wouldn't pay him huge dollars. Save the money for 2012.

I think Yao returns to Houston unless of course he asks for a huge pay day.

CP3 to LA? Unless via trade it ain't happening. Possible destinations include: Bobcats-simply because MJ is the owner and said he would like to play for him. New York-Do I need to explain?

LOL! I don't see either of those players going to NY.

David West I can see in a Nets uniform.

Yao Ming in G.S if not retained by Houston

Chris Paul in L.A

Verajao or Blatch in New York.

This is just a start of the 2011-2012 movement.    &n
