Resetting the NBA’s Western Conference teams rosters

The wild, wild West living up to its name. And the NBA restart is on its way.

With only 3.5 games separating teams two through six, the final eight games of the NBA restart are primed to be a hard-fought battle for position. For the final spot in the conference, five teams sit on the outside looking in trying to steal the eighth seed.

New acquisitions flooded the Western Conference over the course of the four-month break as vets and youngsters take new roles with the contenders. On Thursday night, the first two seeding games of the restart kicked off, officially re-launching the 2020 season.

In a crowded Western Conference filled with talented teams, who will come out the bubble on top? Let’s take a look at the roster moves and changes each team made and how they stack up against the rest of the West.
