Nuggets should probably make a bid for Iguodala. Barton, whatever else within reason.

Raptors, if they can fashion something. Maybe a multiple team deal. Possibly involving lots of players.

Maybe the Heat, if they'd part with a draft pick and filler.

Draymond switches and is trusted. They could try him 5-10 minutes per game at SF... on defense or both. See what happens. Before playoffs.

The Lillard and McCollum extensions establish the timetable for the Blazers fall to mediocrity or worse.

I don't get why they didn't seem to value Aminu. Combined with the Nurkic injury I'm very worried about their defense. If they get Whiteside at his best they may be okay, but that's a bit of a dicey proposition.

Alec Burks seems like a pretty weak signing by the Warriors from perspective of both boxscore metrics and RPM/RAPM.

Glenn Robinson, even worse.

Warriors have 5 guys on roster in bottom 75 on RPM, or twice the average..

They are looking for a data scientist. Will they take one that values RPM or not?

The top 8-10 is what matters most but these weak players will hurt some.

I dunno how many were there at one time but Cavs had 10 guys last season who had RPM estimates of about -3 or worse.

Bulls 8, Suns, 6. Knicks and Pelicans 5.

Celtics, Heat Nets, Mavs and Bucks, 0. Jazz and Pacers, 1. A few teams with just 2.

Best offenses in west next season? GSW, HOU, probably POR, DEN, as was the case nexr case. Clips probably improve but how much? Do the Lakers get in top 5 of west? I'd guess no.

Best defenses? Utah. Maybe nobody else. Maybe Clips.

Best at PG? GSW, POR, HOU, LAK.
SG? HOU, LAC.
SF? LAC.
PF? LAK
C? UTA, DEN.
