After a wild first week of free agency, the NBA title race is as wide open as it’s been in decades. The battle for Los Angeles supremacy becomes the epicenter of the league with the Clippers and Lakers now fielding four of the top 10 players in the league, and perhaps three of the top five. The Warriors are not done. The Bucks and the 76ers are right there as well. The Rockets just traded Chris Paul for Russell Westbrook.
You can say there are favorites next season, but there are no sure things. No complete super-teams. Even teams like the Jazz, Nuggets and Trail Blazers — all probably conference finals teams at best in years prior — are now within a puncher’s chance if things break their way.
All things considered, with a bit of projection for how a few of these teams might not be done dealing, the top 10 contenders for the 2019-20 NBA championship are below.
