No Lakers option?

Not trolling, but they will likely have Dwight and cap space in 2014.

Whilst other teams have some young studs, and whilst they're losing now, they will be back to the top before any of these perennial poor teams can get towards the playoffs.

Obviously NOH. They have Austin Rivers. Dude is a beast.

Seriously though Detroit has two young bigs and future cap space like a mofo. Unless they blow it in FA and sign another Villanueva they should be good. If they manage to sign a PG who knows how to run a team they would be solid. Shame for Detroit that Lowry is in Toronto, he would have provided a lot of what they are missing.

Edit: Why so many votes for Cleveland? Kyrie is good but not a superstar and their team is bad. Unless Varejao is traded for a star they have next to nothing. Not trying to pile on, but they look more like a team that will be an 8th seed in a few years, stuck just missing the lottery and ending up on the treadmill.

That's okay.

I know the OP didn't want to include them because even when the Lakers are in the lottery, they're not really a lottery team. The Lakers organization will rise time and time again with everyone being bitter about it with every Finals trip. Just like old times.

They will probably be looking at this lineup for the next week or so.

Rubio, Barea
Ridnour, Gelebale
AK47, Gelebale
Williams, Cunningham
Steamer, Amundson

They were struggling even before Pek and Shved got hurt, so I don't want to even think about how bad they will be now. If healthy next year and somehow get lucky and get Noel, McLemore and then by some miracle stay/get healthy this team could be really good.

Rubio, Barea
McLemore, Shved
AK47, Budinger
Love, Cunningham
Pekovic

and whoever they could get for Williams, Ridnour, and Roys team option. Very solid team.

Gosh it is so depressing being back in tank mode, again.

The Wolves are the most disappointing team for me this year. So sad how they just imploded.

I'd say the Kings have the brightest future, for they are coming to Seattle baby. Bring IT back to Seattle!

Which of course means that they are not a lottery team now

If they don't make the playoffs and currently sit 20th in the league overall, are they not in the lottery now?

They won't be in 2014-15, but they are now, as it stands today, 5 games under .500 and 11th out West.

Phila is curently a lottery team but has Jrue Holiday and the second best center in the league so I think they at least should be in the poll.

New Orleans because of their young and very good starters.

Whoever voted Toronto is kidding themselves.

Imploded? You mean injured. They haven't imploded, they have yet to be remotely healthy and wont be this year.

Yeah, it's between Cleveland and Detroit.

The Kings could be a darkhorse for a bright future if/when the Magoofs are out of the picture and they're the Super Sonics.

I would say Detroit. The common thing with the rest of the teams has been poor decision making in the front office. I realize Detroit made some seriously questionable signings a few years ago and screwed themselves with darko, but of this group of teams I think they are the most likely to make good decisions going fwd. If they could pawn Stuckey off on someone and get a good backcourt partner for Knight in this years draft(which is one of this draft classes positives) ...and maybe an elite coach, I could see a team that can definitely make the playoffs in the east.

Cleveland, New Orleans, and Detroit - Irving, Davis, Drummond - whether or not they become superstars is the question though

Yep, about Wash. When you how Wall is a difference maker and he's not at 100% and have extra fat on him, you can dream about a great future. Beal Wall Seraphin could lead this team to something really interreting. In comparison, i don't see the cavs doing anything the next year.
