The lockout changed nothing.
Dwight Howard and Chris Paul will both end up Lakers. The Knicks add a bigman Tyson Chandler . The Heat add a glue player Shane Battier and likely Jermaine O'Neal and Chauncey Billups. The Nets add Nene , Celtics add David West. The Bulls either Rip Hamilton or Jamal Crawford. The big markets get stronger.
The Pacers, Kings, and other smaller market teams get nothing in spite of having huge cap space. Nothing has changed
