Forget about the NBA draft, free agency and summer league. Almost one year from now is where it's at.
The start of the 2013-14 regular season is still months away, but many of the power struggles that will take place have already started to be waged.
Teams have spent the majority of the offseason sifting through the available player pool, pining for the opportunity to strike it rich in the draft and free agency. The Association's summer exhibitions have given us a chance to see some of the younger, unknown talent in action.
None of those events matter as much as the purpose behind them does.
Certain franchises approached the offseason hoping to improve. Others embarked on the "All Andrew Wiggins Everything" tank project. And some teams have yet to figure out what it is they're actually doing.
What exactly will everything that has transpired since last season's conclusion amount to?
A whole lot of change.
