The Toronto Raptors put a bow on the NBA season with their championship victory over the Golden State Warriors, but it's never too early to start thinking about the 2019-20 NBA season. For all the fans who won't be celebrating this offseason, next year can't get here soon enough.
But there are a few mysteries to solve before that season gets started. NBA free agency will be a huge factor in how the standings shake out next season, with some of the best players in the NBA like Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Kemba Walker, and Kyrie Irving all potentially on the move to new teams.
Once the season starts, teams like the New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns, who finished in last place in their respective conferences last season, will be looking to turn things around, with the help of some of their big 2019 NBA draft picks. Players like Kristaps Porzingis, who missed all of the 2018-19 season, and Anthony Davis, in a new city, will also be looking to make their presence felt on the league as well.
