Curious who is on each team's roster? Info + CARMELO rankings.

Have you been curious about the rosters so far on all the other teams? Me too. So I went through them all and listed who the starters appear to be at this time, and who are the other NBA rotation worth players.

I also posted their CARMELO rankings.

I found roster information at www.lineups.com. I can't vouch for the accuracy of their information, but seemed mostly valid. They did show Bender on our roster still- so some of my info below may not be perfect. But I think it will do.

After each roster I provide the CARMELO (CARM) predictions. And then I give some commentary.

And at the end I talk about the Western Conference.

(and check out the other fanpost I put out on our team's outlook, coaching style, etc)

.......................................................................

WEST-

DAL: Doncic, Delon Wright, Justin Jackson, Powell, Porzingis

Harris, Seth Curry, Finney-Smith, Kleber, Mejri, Boban

(CARM: 44-38; Odd roster but some decent talent and a good coach. Fighting for 8-10th in the west)

.........................................

DEN: Murray, Barton, Jerami Grant, Millsap, Jokic

Monte Morris, Gary Harris, Hernangomez, Michael Porter Jr (?), Mason Plumlee

(CARM: 51-31 (6th west); will be tough to beat each night, fighting for 4th in the west)

.........................................

HOU: Westbrook, Harden, Gordon, Tucker, Capela

Rivers, Gerald Green, Shumpert, Faried, Chandler

(CARM: 58-24 (1st west); top-tier west playoff team)

.........................................

GSW: Curry, Russell, Looney, Green, Willie Caulie-Stein

Livingston, (Klay, when returns), McKinnie, Jerebko, Bogut

(CARM: 50-32 (3rd west); call me crazy, but I think this season will be bleak for them. I think they will end up bottom tier playoff team out west)

.........................................

LAC: Beverley, Shamet, Leonard, George, Zubac

Williams, Harkless, Harrell, Jamychal Green

(CARM: 48-34 (4th west); A shallow team right now, but with some very good talent and defense. Top-tier west playoff team)

.........................................

LAL (boooo): Rondo, Danny Green, LBJ, Kuzma, Davis

Quinn Cook, Avery Bradley, KCP, Stephenson, Troy Daniels, Dudly, Cousins, McGee

(CARM: 50-32 (2nd west); I was puzzled by this ranking until I saw how deep the roster was. Top-tier west playoff team, but probably not top 2 IMO)

.........................................

MEM: Ja Morant, Justin Holiday, Kyle Anderson, JJJ, Valanciunas

Tyus Jones, Grayson Allen, Kyle Anderson, Josh Jackson, Dillon Brooks, Iguodala, Jae Crowder, Brandon Clarke, Dwight Howard, Miles Plumlle, Tyler Zeller

(CARM: 35-47; way deeper team than I realized, could be fighting for 8-10 position- but depends on how Ja does)

.........................................

MIN: Teague, Okogie, Covington, Jordan Bell, Towns

Shabazz Napier, Bayless, Wiggins, Layman, Deng, KBD, Dieng

(CARM: 43-39; Hard to read this team, no depth on bigs, I’d say they have to fight to get over .500)

.........................................

NOP: Jrue Holiday, Lonzo Ball, Redick, Zion Williamson, Favors

Josh Hart, E’Twaun Moore, Ingram, Darius Miller, Okafor

(CARM: 43-49; Hard to read this team right now. I’d say they sniff around .500)

.........................................

OKC: Chris Paul (?), SGA, Gallinari, Patterson, Adams

Schroeder, Roberson, Diallo, Muscala, Noel

(CARM: 41-41; Also hard to read what will happen here. I think below .500)

.........................................

PHX: Rubio, Booker, Oubre, Saric, Ayton

Tyler J, Bridges, Kaminsky, Diallo, Baynes

(CARM: 36-46 (13th west, 9th worst league); I’m expecting closer to 30 wins myself)

.........................................

POR: Lillard, McCollum, Hood, Zach Collins, Nurkic

Bazemore, Hezonja, Gary Trent Jr, Labissiere, Whiteside

(CARM: 38-44; Shallow and no PG outside of Lillard (trade partner for our PG’s?), I can see why they are expected to be below .500 for the first time in a while)

.........................................

SAC: De’Aaron Fox, Hield, Barnes, Bagley, Dedmon

Cory Joseph, Ferrell, Bogdanovic, Ariza, Harry Giles, Koufos, Richaun Holmes

(CARM: 33-49; not great depth, but I think they’ll be closer to .500 than CARM thinks)

.........................................

SAS: Murray, DeRozan, Carroll, Aldridge, Poeltl

Mills, White, Walker IV, Lyles, D-Mo

(CARM: 38-44; Always hard to count out any of Pop’s teams, but these guys do not look good on paper.)

.........................................

UTA: Conley, Mitchell, Ingles, Bojan Bogdanovic, Gobert

Dante Exum, Jeff Green, Sefolosha, Ed Davis, Ekpe Udoh

(CARM: 50-32 (5th west); call me crazy, but I don’t think they’ll be this good. I think more like 6-9 in the west)

………………………………………………………………………………

EAST-

ATL: Young, Evan Turner, Jabari Parker, Collins, Alex Len

Cam Reddish, Crabbe, De’Andre Hunter, Bembry, Parsons, Vince Carter, Kevin Huerter

(CARMELO: 36-46; They finished fairly strong and look to be a playoff bubble team in the weak east)

.........................................

BOS: Walker, Brown, Tatum, Robert Williams (?), Kanter

Smart, Hayward, Theis, Grant Williams, Theis, Ojeleye

(CARM: 46-36; They lost a lot of important pieces. Walker helps, but they would seem to be a lot weaker. Still a low-tier playoff team in the east)

.........................................

BKN: Irving, Dinwiddie, Levert, Ellenson, Jarrett Allen

Prince, RH-J, Alan Williams, D-Jordan (Durant next season)

(CARM: 38-44; Odd roster at the moment. Without Durant (likely) they are a playoff bubble team- but likely in)

.........................................

CHA: Rozier, Batum, Miles Bridges, M. Williams, Zeller

Graham, Tony Parker, MKG, PJ Washington, Biyombo

(CARM: 26-56; Very odd roster with Rozier running the show. Middling talent. Probably not all that good.)

.........................................

CHI: Dunn, Lavine, Otto Porter, Thad Young, Markkanen

Coby White, Satoransky, Harrison, Selden, Carter Jr, Valentine

(CARM: 37-45; Fairly deep with middling talent, but Porter, Young, Markkanen and Satoransky may push them into a playoff battle)

.........................................

CLE: Sexton, Clarkson, Osman, Love, Thompson

Darius Garland, Clarkson, Knight, Henson

(CARM: 21-61 (worst); They’ll have a tough time competing each night)

.........................................

DET: Reggie Jackson, Galloway, Mykhailiuk, Griffin, Drummond

Derrick Rose, Calderon, Snell, Kennard, Markieff Morris, Pachulia, Maker

(CARM: 36-46; middling team, could approach .500 in east)

.........................................

KYK: Dennis Smith Jr, Payton, Knox, Portis, Robinson

Trier, Ellington, Marcus Morris, Gibson, Vonleh

(CARM: 23-59 (2nd worst); poo-poo platter of a roster. Will find it tough to compete most nights)

.........................................

IND: Brogdon, Oladipo, Warren, McDermott, Turner

Aaron Holiday, Lamb, Leaf, Sabonis

(CARM: 39-43; Shallow team, no starting PF as of now, I’d be surprised if they were sniffing .500, though may still get an 8th seed)

.........................................

MIA: Dragic, Butler, Winslow, James Johnson, Odebayo

Herro, Waiters, DJJ, Haslem, Meyers Leonard

(CARM: 44-38; Fairly deep roster, no top end talent outside of Butler- who is disruptive, probably just around a .500 team)

.........................................

MIL: Bledsoe, Wesley Matthews, Middleton, Giannis MVP, Brook Lopez

George Hill, Divincenzo, Connaughton, Ersan, Christian Wood, Jon Leuer, Robin Lopez, and Pau Gasol

(CARM: 54-28 (2nd east); Very deep team except at point, very long, likely to win the east, IMO)

.........................................

ORL: Augustin, Fournier, Gordon, Issac, Vucevic

Fultz, Jerian Grant, Iwundu, Terrance Ross, Aminu, Bamba

(CARM: 42-40; .500 seems about right for them, which is likely enough to chance into a playoff spot.)

.........................................

PHI: Simmons, Korkmaz, Tobias Harris, Al Horford, Embid

Neto, Zhaire Smith, Shake Milton, Mike Scott, Amir Johnson, Greg Monroe

(CARM: 59-23 (1st east); top tier eastern playoff team)

.........................................

TOR: Lowry, Meeks, Powell, Siakam, Marc Gasol

Vanvleet, McCaw, Stanley Johnson, Ibaka, Moreland

(CARM: 45-37; Hard to know, but thinking they won’t climb over the CARM prediction.)

.........................................

WIZ: John Wall, Beal, Bertans, Bryant

Ish Smith, Isaiah Thomas, McRae, Dekker, Rui Hachimura, Mahinmi

(CARM: 32-50; they look to be a bottom end team- no depth, injury plagued star in Wall.)

The WESTERN CONFERENCE outlook...

This is an unpredictable season we are heading towards.

GSW is no longer a top 3 team, IMO. Not even if Klay comes back quickly- which I do not expect to happen.

LAL are stronger than I thought they would be, but could still implode.

LAC are hard to predict. They are going to be tough to score on, but don't have a lot of depth right now.

And how about NOP, OKC, MIN, DAL, SAS, and POR? All of those teams could be at or above .500 or far below as far as I can tell. That's more than a third of the west!

SAC and MEM may be better than us or far worse- we really don't know- though my guess is worse.

You add us into the mix of the last eight teams I mentioned, and that's NINE teams that could possibly make noise. I think the other six (HOU, LAC, DEN, LAL, GSW, & UTA) are pretty safe in the playoffs, barring injury.

This season could be a wild ride!
