This is going to be an interesting offseason in the NBA. If your favoie team isn't ready to compete on a level with the Warriors out West or the Cavs in the East you're favorite team will either be feasted on by powerful teams or you destined to be mediocre. The rumor mill in the NBA is only getting started. Once the draft is over the rumors are really going to get going. The three biggest storylines going so far are where is Indiana going to trade Paul George to, where is Blake Griffin going to sign, and where is Gordon Heyward going to sign. The Cavs are looking to get better and there are already rumors of them talking to multiple teams to trade for Bulls star Jimmy Butler and also had the Pacers reach out to them for a potential George move.
Teams are trying to follow the foot steps of the Warriors and are adding firepower in the hopes of getting to where the champs are. Teams like the Bulls who aren't either good enough to beat the Cavs or bad enough to get a top 10 pick in the lottery are in murky standing. So now the Bulls are getting pecked at by teams like the Cavs and while holding a player like Butler there will always be a potential "super" team laying in the grass. Toronto is under the same umbrella with rumors flying that their star player Kyle Lowry may be reluctant to resign even with his outright denial on twitter; things are always shady during these times in the NBA offseason.
