Orlando team has Nelson, Evans, Turkolou, Rashard and Dwight and the Clippers have Baron, Mobley, Thornton, Brand and Kaman

Which team will be better next year?

Well. If you mean a better team by record, i believe Orlando has the upperhand.

With Rashard and Turkolu fitting into Stan's system, they will be a batter team all together next year. I do believe Howard has to work on his midrange/touch more and sign some veteran free agents.

Clippers will be alot better than this year... With healthy Kaman, Brand. they will have a heavy front court with Mobleys shooting to pass out to and Barons decision making.

So Clippers have a better team in Talent

Orlando on paper. Easier division.

^ Good point. Plus, you can't expect the Clippers to "click". They will have to build a new chemistry with Davis at the point. It will take some time.

Anyone know about Maggette and his plans?

Better team in the context of record would probably be Orlando, less they play really below their ability. But if these 2 teams simply played against each other, then Clippers.

Just remember, you're comparing the Western Conference with the Eastern Conference essentially... The #11 team in the West can be the #3 team in the East.

Both teams look pretty equal, but Orlando has the easier division.
