We’re continuing our team-by-team analysis of what every NBA franchise needs to do this offseason

Dallas Mavericks – Posted 6/6

Excerpt:

A Point Guard – The Mavs are at least going to explore the option of bringing back Jason Kidd. Unfortunately J-Kidd is about 60 years old and if they want to have a shot at winning it all with Dirk, they need someone young that can be a pass first point guard who can hit open threes (and play defense). Mark Cuban needs to give serious thought to picking a point guard with their only pick in this year’s draft.

Denver Nuggets – Posted 6/4

Excerpt:

 Second “At Will” Scorer – The Nuggets succeeded in the regular season because Carmelo Anthony didn’t HAVE to score 30 every night to keep Denver in the game. They played good defense and found a solid scoring balance that was too much for the majority of NBA teams to handle. In the play-offs, opposing teams (namely, the Lakers) decided to shut down Melo and play up on Chauncey so that he couldn’t get good looks from the perimeter and the Nuggets struggled to find an offensive identity. If opposing teams recognize that they can make Melo and Billups disappear without any fear of anyone else stepping up the Nuggets are going to have a tough time repeating last season’s success.

Houston Rockets

Excerpt:

Assess Ron Artest – Any “risk” the Rockets took by trading for Artest last off-season was no risk at all. Artest was vital to the Rockets success this past season, but now the Houston front office needs to decide if signing him to a long-term, pricey deal actually helps their team contend for a title. Whether or not he has “matured,” you cannot bring back Artest to a squad that is trying to compete while also transitioning to a younger roster if an NBA title isn’t completely realistic. That is just a hand grenade you don’t want to mess with if you don’t have to.

New Orleans Hornets

Excerpt:

Coming off the 2007-08 season the Hornets were the Belle of the Ball in the NBA. They returned to play in New Orleans full time for the first time in three years, won a franchise record 56 games, had one of the future stars of the league in Chris Paul, and were one game away from playing in the Western Conference Finals, making expectations this season even higher. However, a couple of crucial injuries marred the season and led to the Hornets regressing by seven games and getting trounced in the first round of the playoffs (including an NBA post-season record 58-point home playoff loss to Denver.) All injuries aside, head coach Byron Scott added to the dismay as he seemingly lost control of his squad as well.

San Antonio Spurs

Excerpt:

Find the Heir Apparent to Tim Duncan – Tim just turned 33 a couple months back and has played nearly 40,000 minutes of meaningful professional basketball which is already more than David Robinson played in his entire career (about 38,500 minutes). Duncan’s legacy has already been etched in stone but if he wants to extend his career, he is going to need a young stud to tutor while he also uses him as a crutch. The window for this being able to happen (and for Tim Duncan to be able to drift away rather than fall off the proverbial cliff) is closing fast. If Duncan’s replacement isn’t on the roster within the next 18 months, he won’t ever be.
