Teams with bad situations long term
 
As much of a Boston fan as I am, This team falls under bad situation long term...

When Terry,PP,KG expire off their 3 year contracts...Plenty of cap space but no telling who you can get in 2015

Rondo and Green will be 29. Neither player is built for a rebuilding effort.

Bos will be good enough to be 6-8th seed at the least. Never get a high draft pick.

I just feel our future is very bleak after 2-3 years. No great young prospects except Bradley and maybe Sullinger if he progresses.( Can see him as a poor mans David West.)

Well, I think Orlando is in bad situation talent & money wise.
They have Turkoglu for 2 years with 12mio per year. I guess they will amnesty him next year imo.
You have afflalo and harrington for 3 and 4 years for 7 mio respectively and they are not bad enough to get to playoffs but good enough to keep you out of the possible 1-3 pick imo.
Same goes for Big baby and Nelson. They are both on the 6-7 mio for 2 years i think and 3rd one is player option.
This is beyond stupid, why would Magic give Nelson that kind of money when are obviously going nowhere with this roster.
They should just concentrate on picks and developing prospects, but they are stuck in bad mediocrity for 2-3 year. Only after 2-3 years they could really rebuild.
I still don't get the Howard trade. :) Would they land more picks with Nets trade or with blockbuster trade with Lakers?

I'd agree with Orlando. A bunch of 26-27 year old guys who are playing hard but wont be anywhere. They have drafted 2 solid rookies while I think Nicholson will be a starting PF in a year. Orlando should get younger and trade players like Afflalo or Reddick for draft picks or cheap younger players they can audition.

The Wizards have under 24 year old talent that can be all stars though. Nene and the other vets can be moved, and it all falls on John Wall coming back and progressing. They are in pretty good shape. I think Vessley is going to be very solid too

Orlando already used their clause on Arenas. Therefore, they cannot amnesty Turkoglu

The Sacramento Kings. They're not going to exist soon due to them being sold to become the Supersonics.

:applause:

The Kings just look like they're on a treadmill of crappiness.

Celtics.

Rockets in a couple of years.

$15 million dollar contracts to Lin, Harden, and Asik

Spurs.

In three years they will have an aging Tony Parker, budding prime Kawhi Leonard, prime Danny Green, and what else?

Duncan gone. Ginobili gone. Their vets (Diaw, Jax) will have retired or moved on.

Most importantly, Pop will probably be retired.


That's a lottery team in a small market with basically one player to build around who might not even be an allstar talent (Lenoard). A late lottery with Parker playing for a couple more seasons. Which is worse.

Pistons and Kings, rosters are just completely messed up.

That's not too bad. It's basically the same situation that every championship team faces when they lose their core. They'd be in a good rebuilding position.
