All that being said there are still other teams struggling such as Dal, TBay, SJ, Stl and others. So again, adding two more teams would be ludicrous.
If payroll is tied to HRR, it probably does make more sense to expand rather than relocate.
Expansion drives up the average far less than relocation. You have one less poor team with relocation, but more teams are closer to poor, and the poor are further from the midpoint.
