After reviewing those we consider winners of NBA market 2022, it is time to look at the losers, at those franchises that, a priori, have been worse strengthened in the face of a campaign that is expected to be the most competitive and even. Next, the worst teams in a market that, yes, can still bring a last-minute surprise less than a month before the start of the 2022/23 season.
The great loser of the 2022 market we can say that it is Michael Jordan and its Charlotte Hornets. And the truth is that due to an extra-sports problem. Miles Briges’ legal problem (brutal assault on his partner) has left him without too many moves, so LaMelo Ball and company don’t seem to have it easy next season.
Another team involved in extra-sports problems is Phoenix Suns, which has also not moved much with its owner, Robert Sarver, sanctioned for one year for racist and misogynistic comments. Deandre Ayton has been renewed. Little improvement for a team that asked for something more after two years at the top.
Miami Heat has lost PJ Tucker and has not been reinforced with any other player. Complicated. Brooklyn Netsafter all the affair Kevin Durant, has not been reinforced badly, but he is very touched after everything he has lived.
Another team that we consider losing is Dallas Mavericks, which has lost Jalen Brunson and spent a lot of money (perhaps too much) on interiors (particularly the signing of veteran JaVale McGee). have been little strengthened Milwaukee Bucks y Los Angeles Lakers they haven’t gotten rid of Russell Westbrook.
