NBA Off Season Task: Stay or Go? Northwest Division

Denver Nuggets

The Nuggets are in good shape as a number of guys have contracts.  They should look to build up their roster through the draft and free agency.

Minnesota Timberwolves

This a team with their big pieces in place, those being Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio.  There are a couple of guys with team options that can come back.

Brad Miller

Don’t know what he will end up doing, but he has a team option of 5 million.  He may leave to go to a contending team, so he can finally earn a ring.

Martell Webster

Another guy with the team option to stay or leave.

Portland Traiblazers

Lots of guys without contracts here.

Raymond Felton

Played 60 games with the Blazers and started 56 of those games.  It might be best for him to wait for an offer from this team and see what he can do there.

Hasheem Thabeet

This guy hasn’t panned out yet in his third year in the league, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the Blazers let him go and see where he can end up.  He’s already had three teams in three years. Not a good thing.

Jamal Crawford

He has a player option for 5 million, but I would think he goes to see where he can get more money.

Jonny Flynn

Another guy that came from the 2009 draft, 6th pick at that.  Just hasn’t seemed to perform as well.  Blazers let him walk.

Oklahoma City Thunder

Looks to be one piece that isn’t signed for next year that should get some good chunk of change.

Russell Westbrook

He had quite the run in Oklahoma City this year, and I believe the Thunder will sign him to what they can to keep him there.

Utah Jazz

One name here that’s without a contract that could be good to bring back.

Josh Howard

Could still contribute to this Jazz team.
