There is nothing logical or obvious that points to a western team relocating to the east or another realignment. The only thing obvious is that the (awful) divisional wildcard playoff system will be reviewed in two years.
That's not what the league said. The league said it would review the new alignment again after a couple of seasons, which itself would make zero sense if relocation and/or expansion to at least one eastern city weren't a distinct possibility.
