Are NBA teams getting smarter, or am I just a ridiculously generous grader?
That's what you'll have to decide after reading through these grades for every NBA team's offseason. Personally, I feel like it's the former even though 10 teams are earning an "A-" or better.
Throughout the summer, general managers have been making financially sound decisions. Whereas bad contracts have run rampant in the past, teams are taking longer and properly analyzing their choices. For the most part.
As is always the case, there have been plenty of franchises that have failed to do what's in their best interest. You better hope your favorite team doesn't fall into that category.
Especially given the largely positive grades, that's not where you want it to be.
If you're curious, the NBA as a whole earned a 3.01 GPA this offseason, using the University of Georgia's plus/minus grading scale.
