NBA Teams Already Looking Forward to Next Season
David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA season is just over a month old and some teams have sadly already given up. Be it because of an injury to a key player, lack of talent or experience, or just not having what it takes to compete in their division or conference, certain teams have already started to look forward to next year, writing off the 2012-13 season.

Whereas this season may have once been looked upon with promise, some executives have probably already gone into draft mode.

One team that stands out is the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are once again in last place in their division. The team has played so badly that star big man and the NBA's leading rebounder, Anderson Varejao may be on a new team soon with trade talks expected to take place in the near future.

Other teams like the Detroit Pistons and Phoenix Suns also cannot help but struggle, even after offseason improvements.

One thing is certain: Once the 2012-13 season is over, a small handful of teams will breath a sigh of relief, say "good riddance," and then prepare for next season.
