How Good Is This Team Now?

With the dust settled from last week's draft coverage, let's take stock.  Assuming more deals aren't in the works and using some educated guesswork, Portland's lineup next season projects like this:

Starters

  • Raymond Felton PG
  • Wesley Matthews SG
  • Gerald Wallace SF
  • LaMarcus Aldridge PF
  • Marcus Camby  C

Bench

  • Brandon Roy SG
  • Nicolas Batum F
  • Greg Oden C (probably after January)
  • Some combination of Chris Johnson, Luke Babbitt, Elliot Williams, Nolan Smith, and whatever other guys currently on the roster you'd like to speculate about.

So...how does this team look to you?  How far do you think this lineup could climb in the Western Conference?  You don't have to give an exact win total, just let us know the prospects for the regular season (particularly seeding) and whether you think they could win one or more playoff series.  Share below.
