By this point in the offseason, most NBA teams have long since figured out what their starting lineups will look like. Whether they will be trotting out the same group from last season or incorporating some shiny new pieces. Even the most active teams' rosters are taking shape as the 2012-2013 season steadily approaches.

There are, however, a few stragglers who still have yet to get their act together.

Whether they are waiting to see how a young player fairs in training camp, if a veteran is still capable of playing at a high level or even simply if a player can fit into the team's culture and identity, there are a handful of teams around the league that are still lacking a definitive starting lineup.

While having depth is certainly never a bad thing in today's NBA, it can lead to a certain amount of personnel problems as coaches struggle to figure out just who deserves to be out on the court for tipoff versus who would be better served riding the pine and rotating into the game.

Without further ado, here are six teams that are still figuring out their starting lineups and what they could look like when basketball begins in October.
