Top Ten NBA Teams with the Best Future in 2020Teams 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
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 2nd season. He has potential to be the number 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 on the league.
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 buttload of picks. They also have trade bait players in Jrue Holiday and Derrick Favors. They have very competent management.
The Memphis Grizzlies are going to be very scary. They have Ja Morant. They have JJJ then they got a bunch of good young players to surround them. Their management has done everything perfectly really since they drafted Ja. Their coach is also very good. They have also rebuilt their whole culture in about 2 years. That is amazing
If the Bucks keep Giannis, which will probably happen, they will dominate for at least 5-6 years barring injury. The management in Milwaukee is great. They also have a top five head coach on the league. The culture in Milwaukee and the overall city itself is amazing.
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 on Eric Spoelstra. The also have a top three front office led by Pat Riley. They also have a great culture in Miami and they are all about hard work. Also Miami is a awesome city and they have a lot of free agent appeal.
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 in Nick Nurse.
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 2-3 years. They have Bagley who has struggled with injuries, but give him time. They just need to get a great coach and then then get better management.
OKC is interesting. They have Shai and they have some good veterans like Chris Paul and Danilo Gallanari (he could leave though) and they got a buttload of picks. What do they do? They can use CP3 as trade bait, but I honestly don't think Shai will a superstar like some. They just have to nail these picks. Let's see if they can do it.
The Sixers are in turmoil. They have two players that can't maximize their potential playing with each other. They also have a incompetent coach and a inconsistent management. We cannot ignore the fact they have 2 top ten players and a lot of good role players. They just have to touch up on some things.
The Clippers are interesting. They have these two Superstars; Kawhi and PG. They both have their contracts expiring in the summer of 21. 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 a owner who will spend anything, Steve Ballmer.
