NBA Free Agency officially began July 1 and it seems that the Eastern Conference has experienced the most changes. It starts with the Miami Heat who lost the best player in the NBA, LeBron James, to the Cleveland Cavaliers, however there have been many other notable changes in the East. With so many teams going through significant changes, it seems that this year the Eastern Conference might have a shake-up as far as the playoffs are concerned.

Here are the major changes that have affected Eastern Conference teams as of July 16 (Teams are arraigned by how they finished during the 2013-2014 NBA Regular Season).

    I hate how everyone is counting out the knicks in the east. Granted, I’m a Knicks fan and slightly biased but the Knicks got better this offseason and if there core players from last year can have(except Carmelo and timmy because they already had good seasons) bounce back seasons, I see them as a 5/6 seed and dangerous in the playoffs. Just think, if Iman Shumpert can take the forward progression the he’s capable of, J.R can return to his 6MOY form and Calderon can be that offensive steadying force in a system Felton could never dream of doing, how much better are the Nets, Hawks or Raptors(who are all as of now playoff projected teams)? Remeber, NYK was only ONE GAME out of the 8th seed last year WITH the atrocious start.
