Exploring one change that every NBA team needs to make as we enter the 2020 calendar year

As 2019 has come to an end and the NBA season is nearing its halfway point some teams have exceeded expectations while others have failed to meet theirs. We are also nearing the trade deadline which will mean many teams will be making some changes.

No team is perfect and thus every team has something they could change, however, some teams need more than just one. We’ll take a look at some changes that teams need to make in 2020 and how that could affect the rest of their season.

Atlanta Hawks

Change needed: Add 1 or 2 defense-first pieces

The Atlanta Hawks could look to add Andre Drummond, Jrue Holiday and/or Frank Ntilikina in trades involving their expiring contracts and future picks/assets.

Brooklyn Nets

Change needed: Get healthy

The Brooklyn Nets have struggled mightily this season, and simply need to get healthy. The players they need to return include Kyrie Irving, Caris LeVert, and Kevin Durant. They should be simply looking forward to next season. Potentially sell high on Spencer Dinwiddie this year.

Boston Celtics

Change needed: Add a defensive-minded center 

The big possible additions include Andre Drummond, who was reportedly recently placed on the NBA trade block, or on a lesser scale, Nerlens Noel.

Charlotte Hornets

Change needed: Sell high on veterans

Trading veteran players such as Cody Zeller and Marvin Williams could also be beneficial for the Charlotte Hornets.

Chicago Bulls

Change needed: Consistent bench scorer

The Chicago Bulls could look to add a veteran scorer off the bench, possibly a Jamal Crawford or Terrence Ross.
