Rank 'Em: NBA Power Rankings

Created: July 13, 2009, 3:14 PM

Where do Tim Duncan and his new mates rank?

Some rookies have yet to be signed, contracts for restricted free agents have yet to be matched and Dwyane Wade has yet to be appeased. But those matters aside, the NBA offseason is starting to take shape, and that means it's time to see where the league stands just a month after the Lakers brought home the title.

The defending champs haven't been quiet, adding Ron Artest to the mix while losing Trevor Ariza, but they haven't been the loudest players in the personnel market. Where do the Spurs stand after adding Richard Jefferson and Antonio McDyess? Have the Pistons built themselves into a top-10 team? Are the Magic better or worse with Vince Carter and without Hedo Turkoglu?

Rank the midsummer field in SportsNation's Power Rankings.
