But a lot of things have to go right for them to contend. Health as far as Bynum / Varejao / Kyrie. Improvement from the young guys, especially backcourt D. They also need to find a few wing defenders. Do they still have room for Kirilenko or such? I'm too lazy to check. They are deep inside but very shaky on the wings right now.
Last year Jack Armstrong said that no team will give him more than a 1yr guarantee before he can prove his knees are OK throughout the season. No GM wants to have Odon kind of scenario.
