Denver

DWYER ANALYSIS: The Knicks have now developed a one-two punch featuring Amar'e Stoudemire(notes) and Carmelo Anthony, with Chauncey Billups running the show. This, in the absence of context, is a good thing. Billups still has game. Anthony is ultra-clutch. Stoudemire can dominate games on the offensive end. This is it, though. Because New York has precious little options in place to improve the team. With Stoudemire, Anthony and Billups, the Knicks are now set to battle an aging (yet still championship-level) Boston squad, a growing Miami Heat team and a Bulls team that is clearly better than the sum of the Knicks' parts. Not terrible, but not on the level. Anthony and Chauncey did take a team to the West finals two years ago. More analysis

Chicago

DWYER ANALYSIS: Johnson was a disappointment in Chicago, as his all-around gifts and athletic talent never seemed to mesh with either the Vinny Del Negro-coached Bulls of last season, or the group that is surprisingly threatening the Celtics and Heat in the East this year. Johnson had played a grand total of 3:40 in the 2011 calendar year with the Bulls, and just 123 minutes total on the season. Clearly, he wasn't in Chicago's plans. The story could change in Toronto. The Raptors worked Johnson out extensively before the 2009 draft, when Chicago selected the Wake Forest sophomore 16th overall. Toronto is amongst the worst in the Eastern Conference this season, as it plays through the first year in the post-Chris Bosh(notes) era, and any late-season pickup to take a flier on past this season will probably be worth the effort.

Utah

DWYER ANALYSIS: Most thought the Jazz – with Jerry Sloan losing the supposed battle of wills with Deron Williams – would continue to tie their NBA future to that of DW's. But with the league hearing little out of Utah about Williams' apparent availability, the Jazz were nonetheless apparently fearful of him leaving for nothing in the summer of 2012 as a free agent. Now, the team is in clear start-over mode – unless the Jazz decide to move forward with Devin Harris and the triptych of power forwards in Al Jefferson(notes), Paul Millsap(notes) and rookie Derrick Favors. Harris can play. He's two years removed from working as a legitimate NBA All-Star in New Jersey, and while he isn't as good as Williams, he's not a bad consolation prize. The problem with Devin is that he has also essentially taken the past two seasons off. Despite his significant talent and ability to shape the course of a game, Harris is clearly disinterested at times. Things aren't going to turn completely around for New Jersey either. Though Williams will be a huge upgrade, and Favors and Troy Murphy(notes) weren't really important to their rotation in 2010-11, this is their big cash-in. It's not the worst cash-in, but in giving up the first-round draft picks (New Jersey's own from 2011 and Golden State's – two very good selections), along with Murphy's massive expiring deal, this will be your Nets team for a spell.

Washington

DWYER ANALYSIS: The salaries of Kirk Hinrich and Mike Bibby are more or less a wash both this season and next. But though you might have fond memories of Bibby's time with the Sacramento Kings, Bibby is one of this league's worst defenders, and that was too much for Atlanta to bear, even while considering his 44 percent shooting from behind the 3-point arc. Hinrich isn't a great playmaker, so he's on Bibby's level there, and he's a streaky shooter. But he will lock down defensively, and is a younger player to bank on for 2011-12. More analysis

L.A. Clippers

DWYER ANALYSIS: Think about Baron Davis' NBA timeline, and think of the good, heady, on-point play he's provided. There's his second year, after his coach Paul Silas shamed Davis as a rookie by starting David Wesley ahead of him. And 2000-01, as well, and parts of the start of next season. That fabled 2006-07 turn, when Baron Davis was everyone's second favorite player. In spurts, at times, for the last two months – though it should be noted that Davis in no way resembled what we saw in 2007 after working his way into shape last December. Beyond that? He's been a consistent letdown, a consistent millstone on both ends, firing way too many 3-pointers at terrible percentage rates, and allowing defenders to blow by him constantly. And this was in Los Angeles, his hometown, with his producer buddies observing his embarrassing play. How is he going to do in Cleveland? Worse, how is he going to do in Cleveland in 2013? Baron Davis has been playing like an apathetic 34-year-old since he was 25. How's he going to do when he's actually 34? More analysis

Oklahoma City

DWYER ANALYSIS: On an open roster, we don't know where Jeff Green plays. He's a poor rebounder, an awful defender at the power-forward slot, and he doesn't do enough offensively to warrant a look at small forward. And yet, this doesn't stop him from shooting nearly four 3-pointers a game, despite making only 30 percent of his looks from out there. His shot selection has been an issue since his rookie year, and it's still hard to tell, exactly, where he fits in this league. Other than a guy that seems to luck into getting big minutes and plenty of shot opportunities. It's truly hard to see what Danny Ainge sees in these moves. Kendrick Perkins has missed most of the year after recovering from surgery on his right knee, and he was going to be out for a spell with a sprained knee, but all indications had him at full strength for the playoffs. In his absence, they'll have Nenad Krstic, almost completely the anti-Kendrick. And then shipping out Nate Robinson just for the chance to lose both Robinson's and Perkins' contracts. More analysis

Charlotte

DWYER ANALYSIS: Nazr Mohammed may come off as the ultimate journeyman, but he's a significant contributor on both ends. Per 36 minutes of play, he averages around 16 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks a contest. Nazr won't play 36 minutes a night, you say? Well, of course. But spread out over two games, he's going to give you the production levels of a 16 and 12 guy (two blocks) in 18 minutes a night. Don't dismiss that. There was a reason Charlotte's bench kept them in so many games this year. More analysis
