I actually wouldn't mind contraction, I just don't like the status quo. Contract 4 teams and redistribute their talent

Charlotte, Memphis, New Orleans, Atlanta

Atlanta absolutely should be contracted. When you can't fill more than 78% of your building when you're a playoff contender, you should not have a basketball team.

I think the kings have to be considered in any talk like this.

I think your original idea is better. Just make the league 8 teams. I know I would watch more then.

How about splitting the NBA into two leagues like the Premier leagues.

And then teams can be relegated/promoted based on their performance.

I'd sub Sacramento for Toronto. Toronto is a world class city and having one team in Canada isn't bad, they can support a team financially.
Sacramento never made sense, Cali has too many teams, they could stand to lose 2 actually. It's not like the Kings have any historical signifigance, none of the 4 do which should make it easy.
I think options in Seattle and St. Louis should be explored before contraction is proposed. Especially St. Louis, as they have an arena that could support it.

Not a bad idea.

Still trying to figure out my 8 teams though, lol.

Contract Charlotte Memphis,

Move the Hornets to Seattle, Move the Clippers back to San Diego. Move the Hawks back to St Louis. Move the Kings back to Kansas City.

That actually isn't a bad plan. But can't you at least move the Kings to Seattle, I could still root for them there.
