Teams are jockeying for position—not just for the upcoming campaign, but also future ones. Cap space for the stacked 2014 FA class is a goal for some teams, while others are just trying to make themselves as competitive as possible in the quest to dethrone the Miami Heat.

Teams are also evaluated in shifting context. Contenders need to get more competitive, while rebuilding teams need to focus on rebuilding. So, how has your squad fared so far?
