We're still in the midst of the first round of the 2011 NBA Playoffs, but it's never too early to start speculating about the offseason.
Because of the NBA's messy labor negotiations, this particular summer is very hard to forecast at this point.
None of us know how the new collective bargaining agreement will affect free agency, trades and the general process of assembling an NBA team.
So, in an article like this, I have to assume things will at least be relatively similar.
Even if it is harder to sign free agents, and the league's "soft" salary cap goes away, many of these organizations will still make moves and plenty of available players will find new teams.
