The Wolves will get Ricky Rubio back from injury in addition to welcoming Brandon Roy, Andrei Kirilenko and Chase Budinger.
The Nuggets essentially got a better version of Arron Afflalo by adding Andre Iguodala.
The Jazz brought back Mo Williams, as well as Marvin Williams and Randy Foye.
The Blazers are perhaps the only team that saw a drop off in talent. But what they lost in ability and experience they could make up for with youthful exuberance, which has proved to be enough to steal some regular season wins. Add to that the Blazers have a Rookie of the Year candidate in Damian Lillard, who is expected to finally settle Portland's point guard problem.
None of it should prevent the Thunder from capturing its third consecutive division title and securing a top four seed.
But those 16 divisional games loom as a challenge that warrants the Thunder's undivided attention.
