    Should there be expansion, which cities should be considered for an NBA team?

    Since we have 30 teams in the NBA and if the league were to expand to 32 teams and we end up with 2 more teams in the NBA, which cities should be considered for NBA teams?

    My list of cities:

    1- Seattle
    2- Tampa Bay
    3- St. Louis
    4- Nashville
    5- Montreal
    6- Vancouver
    7- Kansas City
    8- Pittsburgh
    9- Baltimore
    10- San Diego


    The 2 cities that should get a team: Seattle and Tampa Bay

    I can agree with you on Seattle and Vancouver getting their franchises stolen from them and they deserve a 2nd chance

    If that were to happen,

    Seattle would obviously be in the Eastern Conference

    Vancouver would be in the Western Conference

    Moving Memphis and New Orleans to the East while Seattle and Vancouver end up in the West...I would be okay with that

    Huh? Seattle and Vancouver would both obviously be in the western conference. Then move teams like New Orleans and Minnesota to the east.

    No, there's already not enough talent to go around.

    This^

    Few things NBA needs to do before expanding is move teams out of markets that aren't working. Yes there are some around like that. Second they need to fix the economic structure to ensure there is some concept of talent spreading out. Third they need to help themselves with the talent pool by fixing (in any way) the one and done rule.

    I would actually like to see the league get rid of a couple teams before thinking about expanding.

    Agreed drop it down to 25 teams, 5 divisions of 5 and rid the league of conferences. Top w.e number of teams make the playoffs

    Id be all for that. Plus it would mean a deeper talent pool.

    I would love to see the Seattle SuperSonics back in the NBA though.

    I kind of prefer lowering and hardening the cap, spreading out the talent more and making it harder to build super teams. Make it a league of smarter, more team-oriented planning rather than stacking up stars in coastal cities. I think adding a couple teams would only help in that effort, while growing the NBA's revenue through creating new markets.

    I don't buy it.

    There is more talent to find and develop, the problem is that rosters are too small.

    Every team should have 20 roster spots so the raw talent can be properly developed.

    100%.
    Got a buddy who works in an NBA front office and he's been saying this for years. As he's pointed out many times, after the first few selections in any given draft it often becomes a crap shoot.
