The Kings for sure. Terrible owners, bad FO, terrible drafting luck and don't know if they'll be in Sacto next year. ATL doesn't strike me as being in a great spot either. They still have Josh Smith to deal with, and Horford and Teague are nice pieces but the rest of their roster is barren. Hope they have a lot of draft picks, they're gonna need them. Brooklyn as long as Billy King is running them, ditto Raptors and Coangelo. The Celtics are days away from blowing it up but they're a big market so they'll probably figure something out.
The Hawks have a ton of cap room this summer so they should be able to add to their team. If Smith bolts, I wouldn't be shocked to see them target Nikola Pekovic or Paul Millsap. The Hawks should have traded Smith to the 76ers for Spencer Hawes and Evan Turner. Not a tremendous deal for ATL, but it would have given them some solid pieces in return for Smith (who they may get nothing for).
The Kings. Besides headcase Demarcus Cousins, they don't have much there.
76'ers. Bynum trade just made them lose a huge chunk of assets. Iggy was never a superstar but he was pretty damn good as a glue guy.
Raptors. Stuck all their eggs in the prayerful Gay/Derozan basket which will never pay off. Gay is never going to be the no.1 option anyone wanted him to be (well played Memphis to get rid of him) and Derozan is nothing special either, maybe a younger version of Gay without the jump shot. In other words, they're like the Bobcats big men, except better but still overpaid.

There's a ton riding on the next two drafts/free agency periods, because Charlotte has a couple of guys who look like decent-to-good starters, a couple of bench guys, and a ton of flexibility. There's virtually no ceiling on the next five years because there's always the chance you land a superstar high in the draft, but unfortunately there may not be a floor, either.
