CBS Sports' Matt Moore has ranked all 30 teams according to their summer off-season transactions and acquisitions.

The rankings are soley based on how a specific team, has or has not, improved it's roster since last season. With the acquisition of the seven foot center, Andrew Bynum, the 76ers have garnered a commanding 3rd spot in the entire NBA, falling only behind Atlanctic division foe, New Jersey Nets, and the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Boston Celtics were the only other Atlantic Division team to reach the top ten in CBS Sports' rankings. The only issue with the rankings is that it isn't a pure indicator of the success rate for each team that was ranked. For example, the New York Knicks, who arguably could be the 2nd best team in the Atlantic Division, was ranked 15th for off-season moves. This rankings are reassuring for the Philadelphia franchise, but not the best mark of skill for the soldiers from South Broad.

The first indicator of the 76ers skillset will most likely come from the first preseason game in the middle of October. Other than that, the rankings do show signs of hope for a newer breed of team in the 76ers, and surely shows how capable the new team is.
