NBA Futures - Northwest Division: Utah Sinking Big Time

+

The Utah Jazz have been one of the most consistent franchises in the NBA, but they are now in full rebuilding mode after some playoff flops. That means there will be a new team at the top of the Northwest Division, where the Jazz have been at the end of the last two seasons. Denver is the most obvious team to fill the void but Minnesota is making a play for the top too. Oklahoma City is still lost in the wilderness with all of its young players and draft capital. Top pick Chet Holmgren is out for the season and top player Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is questionable for the opener. There does not appear to be much on-court drama expected in the Northwest Division this season. Let's see where the best values are.
