It has been awhile since I published my Trending Upwards/Downwards/Neutral for Upcoming Season for the Western Conference. I’ve finally been getting to work on the Eastern Conference Edition. I will repeat some of my introduction in the Western Conference Edition in case you did not read it. Some factors go into my decision on whether teams are trending upwards, downwards, or neutral.

On May 14, 2016, Dan Favale — of Bleacher Report — wrote an article depicting his Top 50 Free Agents going into the 2016 offseason.

All these predictions are barring any trade that may happen, like the Celtics with their three 1st round picks that they may be actively shopping. Every year there are theories about where the top free agents will go and usually they never end up where there are suppose to be and end up where they were the whole time. I believe I made some interesting picks here and I believe this will be a fun article to stay tuned too so let’s get right in it.
