Me and Erik Horne of The Oklahoman wrap up the Northwest division for the Instant Offense Summer Series:
-Mitch McGary gets 10 more games tacked on to his 5 game suspension. Is his future in OKC?
-How does Oladipo fit with Westbrook? Where do you rank them in the backcourt pantheon?
-What should we expect from Steven Adams?
-How does Donovan deploy Enes Kanter?
-aside from Oladipo, which new/unproven role player makes the biggest impact?
-Hill, Johnson, and Diaw make the Jazz veratile and deep. We grade their off-season.
-Like OKC, Utah's 4 and 5 fly in the face of today's "pace & space" big men. Will they make it work?
-"Hayward and Hood compare to ____". As built, how much of a challenge can Utah give the league elite?
-GM Neil Olshey shelled out a mountain of cash to stand pat. Did he outsmart himself?
-Who steps into the role of that 3rd option?
-How does the frontcourt play out?
-What are Crabbe and Harkless' ceilings?
-We find 3 reasons or Nuggets fans to be optimistic
-Jamal Murray. Discuss.
-How does Mike Malone juggle his vets with developing the youth?
-Is Faried on his way out?
-Will they live up to the newfound hype?
-Will Rubio finish the year in Minny? How good can Dunn be?
-Are the Timber-Pups playoff bound?
