What your team should do when the lockout ends

Oct 24, 2011, 3:18 PM EDT

NBA: NOV 16 Pistons v Lakers

We promise that someday, eventually, the lockout will end. It may not seem like it, but it will.

And when it does, it will feel like chaos. There will be a lot of questions and a mad scramble for free agents. The teams that go into that with the best plan will win.

In that spirit, we’ve taken a look at what your team should do when the lockout ends. All 30 of them. It’s been a process that lasted over a month but features great work from the entire team here at PBT. Read below, find your team and check out what their next moves should be.

Then all you have to do is wait for the lockout to end.

    The Magic…..

    should trade D12. Sorry Magic fans, he’s not coming back. Trade him while you can. Just please don’t trade him to the Lakers….

      D12 is not going to the Lakers he going to the Brooklyn Nets an this is coming from a Knicks fan
      nets will sign Nene through free agent then trade him with Brook lopez with picks, cash maybe Marshon Brooks to The Orlando Magics and in return Brooklyn Nets get Dwight Howard

        Nene is not going to sign to be traded. This isn’t a video game. SMH

    The Thunder……..

    should lock up Russell Westbrook long term. The media should stop throttling Westy and recognize flaws in Durant’s game.

    The Blazers……..

    should keep Brandon Roy. Heart of a lion.

    Once again, nothing on the Knicks.

      Relax. They haven’t gotten to them yet because no one cares about them but you.

      • MTArider - Oct 25, 2011 at 11:18 AM

        Yeah no one cares about them but me. Good call. Thats why they are one of the top 5 grossing teams in the league. Because they have one fan. Good call. Moron.

      At least their name is on the list…apparently in the lockout the Milwaukee Bucks were removed from the league!

      • Kurt Helin - Oct 20, 2011 at 12:13 PM

        The Bucks are the final team, we’re not done yet. They will be up in the next 24 hours.

    “What your team should do when the lockout ends”

    You could have kept it the same for every team…

    “Prepare for the 2012 Draft”

    The Wolves dynasty begins as soon as the lockout ends. Ricky Rubio will get a ring before LeBron. Book it.
