What Every 2014 NBA Non-Playoff Team Should Look Forward To
Bob Leverone/Associated Press

The NBA regular season is coming to a close and the playoffs will be here before you know it. However, what should those not expected to partake in the postseason be looking forward to over the next few months? 

While some will be out contending for a championship, the others will be going back to the drawing board. This summer has the potential to swing the fortunes of downtrodden franchises thanks to a strong draft and a solid crop of free agents. 

This article will serve as a summer preview for teams (and fans of said teams) who will surely be forgotten in the coming weeks as the playoff picture takes shape. Even though the season didn't go as planned, what can these teams hang their hat on and how can they improve this offseason? 

Since Phoenix, Dallas and Memphis are battling it out for the final two spots in the West, they've been excluded from the list. I didn't want to disrespect those respective fan bases by ending their season prematurely. 

As for the rest, consider this your moment in the sun.
