No disrespect to any teams but tanking isn't necessary a bad thing if promising talents or potential superstars are in the next year's drafts. It's been done many times in the past. Which teams plan to tank next season?

Nobody will really tank this season because of the weak draft class next year. Teams that will be near the bottom will be Charlotte, New Orleans, Cleveland, Sacramento, Detroit, and maybe the suns. They aren't tanking though just rebuilding. Orlando could be here too depending on what happens with Howard.

Orlando, Houston, possibly Charlotte but they are just a bad team so I don't know if I would call it tanking.

That is my tank alert... Bad teams differ from tanking

The Kings, but not by choice...

how are they tanking? they dont need a high draft pick and they should be better this year (possible 8th seed), they got a potential big three in thomas robinson, demarcus cousins, and tyreke evans

they aren't tanking by choice, they will are not just good enough to be a playoff team.

i expect great things from Cousins this season though.

Only Orlando, and Charlotte.

If the Bulls get off to a bad start without Rose, it might be in there best interest to tank.

Other teams, like The Rockets, Pistons,Kings, depends on the start they off to.

Teams don't choose to tank before the season starts. Maybe after 30 games or so teams that don't have a shot will throw in the towel though.

I realize this concept but let say a team had a losing record and this offseason with plenty of cap space, they havent done much to improve upon their roster, except adding a couple of rookies from draft. To me, that's a clear sign of tanking for the coming season.
