    Now that all of the big name free agents are signed, and most major moves have been completed, what are your projected standings?

    SA won nearly 50 games last season without their starting PG, fixed their biggest issue in wing depth by replacing Quincy Pondexter and Dante Cunningham with DeMarre Carroll and Marcus Morris this off-season, will presumably get solid minutes from Lonnie Walker, and aren't going to make the playoffs? But teams like DAL/SAC are supposed to win 10-15 more games than last season?

    Lakers in for OKC is the only change I see from this past season.

    35+ mins a game from Bagley. Full season from Barnes. Adding elite defender in Ariza. No reason Fox and Hield can't take another step forward. Kings will push for a playoff spot this year.

    Dallas were borderline until they traded half their team for Porzingis. They added good pieces in KP, Curry and Wright and expect progression from Luka.

    They absolutely were not. They were 23-28 at that point. They would have had to win like 25 of their remaining 30 to qualify...

    Wright cannot shoot. Curry is a good bench piece. KP is 7'3, prone to injury, and in October it will be nearly 2 years since he last played.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I just don't see it.

    That was my one, outside the box pick in the East. They probably make it, but it's not hard for me to envision a scenario where they get off to a slow start and end up dealing the older guys and writing the year off. Gun to my head, I think they probably make it, but I don't see anything higher than say a 6 seed, as they are currently constructed.

    I really wish mavs would’ve got green. Would’ve been a good pickup. Still think they are one year away from playoffs. They need another vet, anyways I would not be shocked at all if jokic came to Dallas when his contract is up. Same with Bogey from The kings. That euro connection is real as f***. Anyways doncic will take another step next season and hopefully push out the weaker “in the past” guards.

    Clippers will finish with the best record in the nba. Than lose in the second round. Hobbled kawhi and Paul George turning into George Paul will do that to you...

    They'll make the playoffs but I'm not sure they're better than the healthy Nets and Pacers
