The NBA offseason has began for 14 of the league's 30 teams.

While those lucky enough to make the playoffs continue to focus on the task at hand, the rest are busy with what has become a year-round process of talent evaluation. Coaching changes already have been, and more are possible as teams are eliminated from the postseason.

Soon enough, the focus of all 30 teams will shift to the 2019 NBA Draft, where Duke's Zion Williamson is certain to be the No. 1 pick. Lottery balls fall May 14, and they will set the official order in which non-playoff teams will select.

Once that's done, players will move up and down draft boards. The NBA's combine on May 15-19 again will force shifts, followed by individual workouts and team assessments.

Plenty will change between now and the June 20 draft, but here's our 2019 mock, version 1.0.
