Northwest Division

1. Oklahoma City Thunder

The reigning MVP has two superstars to help carry the load.

2. Minnesota Timberwolves

An influx of talent has been added with the likes of Towns and Wiggins.

3. Portland Trail Blazers

A full season with Nurkic at center will be interesting to see.

4. Denver Nuggets

This will be a sneaky good team with the emergence of Nikola Jokic.

5. Utah Jazz

Losing Gordon Hayward will hurt, but Utah should remain competitive.
