Free-agent team needs: West

Portland Trail Blazers -- $23 million under the cap Coming off the books: Mehmet Okur ($10.9M), Raymond Felton ($7.6M), Hasheem Thabeet ($5.1M) Biggest needs: PG, SG, C Nicolas Batum (restricted free agent) figures to re-up with the Blazers, and they'll have plenty of cash to throw at him. The big question is whether Portland will chase other free agents this summer or wait until it finds out what talent it has with its two likely lottery picks. This is setting up to be a fascinating offseason for Portland, an organization that has to fill both the mouths of a passionate fan base and the holes of a porous roster. Going after Roy Hibbert and Brook Lopez might be an option, but they likely won't be freed from their current teams. Of all the free agents on the market, the one to keep an eye on is Nash.
