The craziness of the NBA offseason is rapidly approaching and with that will come no shortage of rumors to monitor. That’s already underway and it can be somewhat challenging to keep up with it all.
Teams will need more firepower in order to compete with the Los Angeles Lakers, and quite possibly whichever other NBA contender that emerges. For now, the threat of a LeBron James-Anthony Davis dynamic duo is worrisome enough for opponents.
