NBA training camps won't open for another couple of months, but thanks to a bevy of free-agent moves and a few breakout summer league performances, some seriously competitive position battles have already begun to materialize.
Rookie Victor Oladipo will square off with veteran Jameer Nelson to see who'll be playing the point for the Orlando Magic.
The Houston Rockets have a number of worthy candidates vying for the right to start at the 4 alongside Dwight Howard.
And perhaps most interestingly, Kent Bazemore could be fighting it out for the right to do more for the Golden State Warriors than lead the team in celebrations. The Dubs need a backup point guard, and he might be in the mix to see increased minutes.
A lot is sure to change between now and when teams really have to start making decisions about their rotations, but this offseason is already shaping up to feature a ton of hotly contested positional battles.
