Top Ten NBA Teams with the Best Future in 2020

Teams in the NBA are either trying to build for the future or they are in a win now state or both. The teams trying to build for the future are at least trying to moderately win while building young talent. These are the teams that are excelling most at that. They have those young players, a good coach and management, and a great culture. Keep all those things in mind when voting.
The Top Ten
1 Dallas Mavericks The Dallas Mavericks are an American professional basketball team based in Dallas, Texas. The Mavericks compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.

The Mavericks have the brightest future, in my opinion. They obviously have Luka, who is a top five player in the league in only his second season. He has the potential to be the number one player in the league in a few years. He has a great sidekick in KP. Then they have a great team around them. They have very good management. Mark Cuban is always willing to spend, and Rick Carlisle is a top ten coach in the league.

2 New Orleans Pelicans The New Orleans Pelicans are an American professional basketball team based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Pelicans compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.

The Pelicans are scary. They have a lot of good young players. Zion, Lonzo, Ingram, Hayes, Hart, Alexander-Walker, and more. They also have a large number of picks. They have trade bait players in Jrue Holiday and Derrick Favors. They have very competent management.

3 Memphis Grizzlies The Memphis Grizzlies are an American professional basketball team based in Memphis, Tennessee. The Grizzlies compete in the National Basketball Association as a member team of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.

The Memphis Grizzlies are going to be very scary. They have Ja Morant. They have Jaren Jackson Jr., then a bunch of good young players to surround them. Their management has done everything perfectly since they drafted Ja. Their coach is also very good. They have also rebuilt their whole culture in about two years. That is amazing.

4 Milwaukee Bucks The Milwaukee Bucks are an American professional basketball franchise based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Bucks compete in the National Basketball Association as a member team of the Eastern Conference Central Division.

If the Bucks keep Giannis, which will probably happen, they will dominate for at least five to six years barring injury. The management in Milwaukee is great. They also have a top five head coach in the league. The culture in Milwaukee and the overall city itself is amazing.

5 Miami Heat The Miami Heat is an American professional basketball team based in Miami, Florida. The Heat compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

Miami is good. They have good young players and they have a lot of cap space for 2021. In my opinion, they have a top-five coach in Eric Spoelstra. They also have a top-three front office led by Pat Riley. They have a great culture in Miami, focused on hard work. Additionally, Miami is an awesome city with significant free agent appeal.

6 Toronto Raptors The Toronto Raptors are a Canadian professional basketball team based in Toronto, Ontario. The Raptors compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Atlantic Division.

Toronto is a great organization. They have a lot of good young talent and they are arguably the best team at development. They have, in my opinion, the best coach in the league, Nick Nurse.

7 Sacramento Kings The Sacramento Kings are a professional basketball team located in Sacramento, California. Competing in the NBA, they belong to the Western Conference Pacific Division. Although championship success has been elusive, the team has a dedicated fan base. Their colors are purple, silver, and black.

The Sacramento Kings are so underrated. This year they struggled with injuries to key players and they are still in a position to make the playoffs. Fox is a great player and can definitely make the all-star team in two to three years. They have Bagley who has struggled with injuries, but give him time. They just need to get a great coach and then get better management.

8 Oklahoma City Thunder The Oklahoma City Thunder are an American professional basketball team based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

OKC is interesting. They have Shai and some good veterans like Chris Paul and Danilo Gallinari (he could leave though), and they've got a lot of picks. What do they do? They can use CP3 as trade bait, but I honestly don't think Shai will become a superstar like some believe. They just have to nail these picks. Let's see if they can do it.

9 Philadelphia 76ers The Philadelphia 76ers are an American professional basketball team based in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.

The Sixers are in turmoil. They have two players that can't maximize their potential playing with each other. They also have an incompetent coach and inconsistent management. We cannot ignore the fact they have two top ten players and a lot of good role players. They just have to touch up on some things.

10 Los Angeles Clippers The Los Angeles Clippers, often abbreviated as the LA Clippers, are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles.

The Clippers are interesting. They have these two superstars. Kawhi and PG. They both have their contracts expiring in the summer of 2021. A lot of teams will have cap space. Their role players are also getting old, Patrick Beverly, Reggie Jackson, and Lou Williams. Harrell will also demand a decent-sized contract. Can the Clippers keep these players? Regardless, they still have a top ten coach in Doc Rivers, and they have a great management group and an owner who will spend anything, Steve Ballmer.
