    These are the teams who did not make it to the playoffs last season but currently has the potential to enter the postseason this year. They are selected for their team’s potential in the upcoming season, offseason moves and roster depth.

    1.Minnesota Timberwolves – Kevin Love wants to win now, he can’t wait any further so the Wolves management brought in valuable pieces on their quest to a playoff berth. They’ve added former Celtic player Greg Stiemsma, Houston standout Chase Budinger, Defensive specialist Andrei Kirilenko and the return of All-Star guard Brandon Roy. With Nikola Pekovic proving that he is force inside, Derrick Williams is improving his game and when Ricky Rubio returns from his injury, we can expect that these young Timberwolves will try and fight for a playoff spot this season.

    2.Phoenix Suns – The new era has come to Phoenix, Steve Nash out, Goran Dragic in. The Suns are building a yound talented team around Dragic, who is set to have another breakout year with the Suns this season. They have added Michael Beasley, veteran Jermaine O’Neal, Wesley Johnson and Luis Scola plus rookie Kendall Marshall. They also have center Marcin Gortat, high-flyer Shannon Brown, 3-point specialist Channing Frye and Jared Dudley. Can they fight for a playoff run this season? One thing is for sure, they are one of the teams to watch for in the West.


    3.Brooklyn Nets – New city, new arena, new team. Owner Mikhail Prokhorov is spent tons of dollars to give his team a new look and a fresh start of the season. They have retained All-Star guard Deron Williams, Gerald Wallace, and recently acquired Joe Johnson. They also signed forward Andray Blatche and energy-guy Reggie Evans. The Nets now have the Stars to push them further in the standings, but how far can they go?
