2019 NBA Landscape: Team by Team New Additions

The 2019 NBA free agency frenzy was here and gone in a flash, but the landscape has changed. It appears we have achieved parody in a league that has been dominated by the Warriors for 5 years now. Having said that, it all could change and parody could be out the window if Kawhi Leonard decides to join the Los Angeles Lakers giving them a big three along with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. If that were to happen we would be looking at the Lakers as the heavy favorites to win it all. Here’s to hoping Kawhi stays in Toronto or goes to Los Angeles, but with the Clippers and not the Lakers. Without further ado, let’s get into all the changes around the NBA landscape for 2019 and see what some teams did to bolster their rosters for the season ahead!
