Atlantic Division

Boston Celtics (62-20)

Who’s Coming: Rasheed Wallace (DET), Marquis Daniels (IND),
Shelden Williams (SAC) Lester Hudson (58th)

Who’s Going: Stephon Marbury (Free Agent), Gabe Pruitt (Free
Agent), Leon Powe (CLE)

The offseason could have been even more eventful for the Celtics,
as Danny Ainge spent much of the summer shopping two starters -
point guard Rajon Rondo and shooting guard Ray Allen - in an
effort to add some young talent and postpone the inevitable crash
when the "big three" of Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce start
showing their age. Instead, they added some complementary
pieces that make Boston, on paper, a prime contender for the 2010 title.
The big addition: free agent Rasheed Wallace. 'Sheed could be reenergized
playing for a contender, and makes Boston's frontcourt
rotation - with Garnett, Kendrick Perkins, and the re-signed Glen
"Big Baby" Davis one of the deepest, most talented and most flexible
in the league. Marquis Daniels, coming off a productive season
in Indiana, adds depth behind Pierce and Allen at the swing spots.
The only potential hole on this roster is behind Rondo at the point,
where the Celtics are very thin after opting not to bring Stephon
Marbury or Gabe Pruitt back. Look for Boston to add a veteran
backup at that spot.

New Jersey Nets (34-48)

Who’s Coming: Terrence Williams (11th), Courtney Lee (ORL),
Tony Battie (ORL), Rafer Alston (ORL)

Who’s Going: Vince Carter (ORL)

The Nets got younger and cheaper… and probably a lot worse… by
trading Vince Carter to the Magic for a promising young player in
Courtney Lee and the expiring contracts of Tony Battie and Rafer
Alston. They'll have plenty of cash on hand for next summer's free
agent frenzy - only Devin Harris, Keyon Dooling, Eduardo Najera
and first-rounder Terrence Williams are under contract beyond this
season, though Brook Lopez' option is a lock to be picked up. The
question is, will any free agent of note have any desire to play for a
team that could be god-awful this season?
Looking at the bright side… Lopez is coming off an excellent rookie
season and is generally regarded as one of the league's top young
bigs. Harris played at a near all-star level in his first full season in
Jersey, and Laurence Frank's dribble-drive offense plays to his
strengths. Ex-Louisville star Williams could solidify the three spot
for the Nets for the first time since they traded Richard Jefferson -
Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons gave New Jersey very little from
that spot last year.
The competition for Carter's shooting guard spot bears watching.
Lee is probably the favorite, but don't forget, the Nets offense is the
same system that made Chris Douglas-Roberts a star in college;
CDR could challenge Lee for minutes.

New York Knicks (32-50)

Who’s Coming: Jordan Hill (8th), Toney Douglas (29th),
Darko Milicic (MEM)

Who’s Going: Chris Wilcox (DET), Quentin Richardson (MEM)
In Limbo: David Lee, Nate Robinson

The Knicks are a work in progress - and work is scheduled to continue
through this season and into next summer. As anyone with
even a passing interest in the NBA is aware, the Knicks are rebuilding,
and hoping to make a big score with next summer's free agent
class. The 2009-10 season seems to be a very low priority. David
Lee and Nate Robinson - arguably New York's two best players last
season - are in limbo; restricted free agents both, they've fallen victim
to New York's unwillingness to add any contracts that run
beyond this season. One or both may be forced to accept a oneyear
contract.
Even if Lee and Robinson are back, the Knick starting lineup and
rotation are full of question marks. Lee would most likely return to
his starting center spot, with Al Harrington and Wilson Chandler at
forwards and Larry Hughes at shooting guard. Chris Duhon proved
last season he's best suited to a backup role - he broke down from
overuse as the season wore on - and the Knicks hoped to upgrade
at the point, but none of the guards they've considered - including
Jason Kidd, Andre Miller, Jason Williams, Jamaal Tinsley and
Ramon Sessions - has signed, which leaves Duhon and rookie
Toney Douglas.
The rest of the rotation is up in the air as well. Lee could be
replaced by Darko Milicic, who is by far the best defensive big man
on the roster, by rookie Jordan Hill or even Eddy Curry, who is
reportedly in much better shape. Last year's lottery pick, Italian forward
Danilo Gallinari, is another player who could find himself in a
significant role. He showed potential last season, but missed most
of the year with back trouble.

Philadelphia 76ers (41-41)

Who’s Coming: Jrue Holiday (17th), Primoz Brezec (TOR),
Jason Kapono (TOR)

Who’s Going: Andre Miller (POR), Reggie Evans (TOR)

The Sixers are in transition right now. That could be a good thing…
with players like Andre Iguodala on the roster, transition is what
they do best.
Thinking they were one big player away from contending last year,
the Sixers brought in Elton Brand - one of the game's top low-post
scorers. To say that move backfired would be an understatement…
Brand's presence on the low block seemed to throw off Philly's
offense, slowing their excellent transition game in much the same
way that Shaquille O'Neal stalled the Suns. Before they could work
that out, Brand was lost for the season with a serious shoulder
injury - his second major injury in as many seasons.
They'll try again this season, under new coach Eddie Jordan. Brand
should be back at full strength for training camp, and will anchor a
frontcourt that also features shot-blocker Sam Dalembert and
promising young bigs Marreese Speights and Thaddeus Young.
Another seven-footer, Jason Smith, is coming back after missing all
of last season with a torn ACL.
Questions abound in the backcourt after Andre Miller's departure.
The only point guards on the roster are Louis Williams - more of a
combo guard/scorer - and rookie Jrue Holiday, who has loads of
potential but is coming off a somewhat disappointing freshman
season at UCLA. Look for Williams to get the starting nod, at least
initially, with Holiday backing up the point and the shooting guard
spots. The two and three positions will be manned by veterans
Willie Green and Andre Iguodala, with Jason Kapono in the mix for
three-point shooting.

Toronto Raptors (33-49)

Who’s Coming: DeMar DeRozan (9th), Hedo Turkoglu (ORL),
Devean George (DAL), Antoine Wright (DAL), Reggie Evans (PHI),
Amir Johnson (MIL), Sonny Weems (MIL), Jarrett Jack (IND), Rasho
Nesterovic (IND)

Who’s Going: Shawn Marion (DAL), Anthony Parker (CLE),
Jason Kapono (PHI), Kris Humphries (DAL), Roki Ukic (MIL)

Faced with the unpleasant possibility of losing franchise power forward
Chris Bosh to free agency after the season, the Raptors
pushed through one of the NBA's more aggressive roster
makeovers this summer. The result just might be their most talented,
balanced roster in years.
The big acquisition was forward Hedo Turkoglu, who reportedly fell
in love with Toronto's cosmopolitan atmosphere and large Turkish
population. He should be an excellent fit for a team that plays a
heavily Euroball-influenced style, in a frontcourt with Bosh and center
Andrea Bargnani.
In the backcourt, Jose Calderon has emerged as one of the
league's top distributors, and rookie DeMar Derozan is an athletic
freak and slasher. Jarrett Jack was brought in both for his ability to
play both guard spots and because he's a buddy of Bosh's going
back to their days at Georgia Tech.

Central Division

Chicago Bulls (41-41)

Who’s Coming: James Johnson (16th), Taj Gibson (26th)

Who’s Going: Ben Gordon (DET), Tim Thomas (waived),
Anthony Roberson (waived)

It's hard to look at Chicago's roster and think they're done making
changes… as it stands right now, the Bulls have about eleven forward/
center types under contract, two small forwards, Kirk Hinrich
and Derrick Rose. Something's gotta give.
Chicago's frontcourt is impossibly deep - they'll have Brad Miller,
Joakim Noah and Tyrus Thomas and draft picks James Johnson
and Taj Gibson in the mix for minutes at the four and five spots.
Luol Deng should be back in the mix after playing just 49 games
last season due to a stress fracture; pencil him in at the three
spot… the versatile Johnson could get minutes there as well, as
could John Salmons, when the Bulls go small.
Salmons should get the bulk of his minutes at shooting guard,
opposite 2009 Rookie of the Year Derrick Rose. Kirk Hinrich is still a
Bull - much to his surprise - and will back up both guard spots
unless/until he's traded. Portland was a logical destination for
Hinrich before the Blazers signed Andre Miller.

Cleveland Cavaliers (66-16)

Who’s Coming: Shaquille O'Neal (PHO), Anthony Parker (TOR),
Jamario Moon (MIA), Leon Powe (BOS), Christian Eyenga (30th),
Danny Green (46th)

Who’s Going: Ben Wallace (DET), Sasha Pavlovic (PHO), Tarence
Kinsey (waived), Joe Smith (free agent), Wally Szczerbiak (free
agent), Lorenzen Wright (free agent)

The Cavs went into the offseason looking to solve a few specific
problems. They needed bodies to bang with Dwight Howard, a
combo forward or two who could chase guys like Hedo Turkoglu
and Rashard Lewis, and maybe a veteran shooting guard to solidify
that position.
Check, check and check.
The Cavs made headlines by acquiring Shaquille O'Neal in a trade
with the Suns. The big fella is clearly on the downside of his career,
but he's also very familiar with playing off a perimeter superstar,
having shared the floor with Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade before
assuming his new role as LeBron James' number one running
buddy. Cleveland's big man rotation is now almost comically deep,
with Shaq and Zydrunas Ilgauskas at center and Jamario Moon,
Leon Powe and Danny Green added to the mix with Anderson
Varejao, and J.J. Hickson.
Anthony Parker comes over from Toronto to help out at shooting
guard, a position he'll share with Delonte West. Mo Williams is back
to run the point, with Daniel Gibson on hand as an extra shooter.
That rotation seems enough to match up with just about any team
in the league, but should LeBron require additional reinforcements,
Ilgauskas has an $11.5-million contract that expires after the season,
which should be a very attractive commodity at the trade deadline.

Detroit Pistons (39-43)

Who’s Coming: Charlie Villanueva (MIL), Ben Gordon (CHI),
Austin Daye (15th), DaJuan Summers (35th), Jonas Jerebko (39th),
Chris Wilcox (NYK), Ben Wallace (PHO)

Who’s Going: Allen Iverson (free agent), Rasheed Wallace (BOS),
Antonio McDyess (SAN), Amir Johnson (TOR), Arron Afflalo (DEN),
Walter Sharpe (MIL), Fabricio Oberto (WAS)

This is not your father's Oldsmobile. The remaking of the Pistons,
which started with the trade of Chauncey Billups for Allen Iverson,
kicked into high gear this summer. Suddenly, the team that
achieved fame and championships as a tight, physical, defensefirst
crew with a halfcourt offense like a well-oiled machine looks
like a run-and-gun outfit, with hard-nosed players like Wallace,
McDyess and Billups swapped out for finesse ones like Villanueva,
Gordon and Daye.
The new-look Pistons will most likely feature a front line involving
Villanueva and Tayshaun Prince at forward and Rodney Stuckey
with either Rip Hamilton or Ben Gordon in the backcourt. Center is
a question mark - the options include Ben Wallace, who returns to
Detroit this season, and Chris Wilcox, signed as a free agent.
Having both Hamilton and Gordon on the roster raises the possibility
that another trade is coming. Historically, Gordon hasn't been
thrilled with a bench role, and Hamilton didn't take well to serving
as sixth man last season, either. But Hamilton just signed an extension
through the 2012-13 season, which makes a deal highly
unlikely. It will be interesting to see how new coach John Keuster
divvies up the minutes between his two "starting" twos.

Indiana Pacers (36-46)

Who’s Coming: Tyler Hansbrough (13th), A.J. Price (52nd),
Dahntay Jones (DEN), Earl Watson (OKC), Solomon Jones (ATL)

Who’s Going: Jarrett Jack (TOR), Rasho Nesterovic (TOR),
Jamaal Tinsley (waived)

There's an obvious common thread through most of the Pacers'
offseason acquisitions - toughness. Jim O'Brien's system is based
on tough, energetic, frenetic defense, and that's exactly what players
like Dahntay Jones, Earl Watson, Solomon Jones and 13th
overall draft pick Tyler Hansbrough do best. If nothing else, the
Pacers should be tougher to score on next season.
Of course, the biggest addition Indiana could make for 2009-10
would be health. The Pacers were wracked by injuries last season:
Mike Dunleavy was limited to just 18 games, Danny Granger 67 and
Troy Murphy and T.J. Ford played 73 and 74, respectively. (You
know it's been a rough year injury-wise when T.J. Ford is on the
high end of your games played list.)
Assuming everyone is back and healthy, the Pacers will line up with
second-year center Roy Hibbert in the middle, flanked by Murphy
and Granger at the forwards. Ford will start at the point, at least initially,
but it wouldn't be a big surprise if Earl Watson got significant
playing time there as well. At shooting guard, Brandon Rush
emerged as a legitimate player last season and could get the starting
nod even if Dunleavy's healthy. Jones, Hansbrough and Jeff
Foster will be the other key reserves.

Milwaukee Bucks (34-48)

Who’s Coming: Brandon Jennings (10th), Jodie Meeks (41st),
Hakim Warrick (MEM), Ersan Ilyasova (Europe), Carlos Delfino
(TOR), Kurt Thomas (SAN), Walter Sharpe (DET), Roko Ukic (TOR)

Who’s Going: Charlie Villanueva (DET), Richard Jefferson (SAN)

The Bucks' leading scorers last season were: Michael Redd,
Richard Jefferson, Charlie Villanueva, Ramon Sessions and Andrew
Bogut. Of that group, only Redd and Bogut are likely to suit up for
Milwaukee in 2009-10.
The Bucks have the look of a team designed specifically to save
money. Richard Jefferson was sent to San Antonio for a batch of
spare parts; of the players acquired in the trade, only veteran big
man Kurt Thomas remains on the roster. The team made no
attempt to re-sign either Villanueva or Sessions.
So what will this bargain-basement team look like? Milwaukee still
has a legit pivot in Bogut, and a top shooter in off guard Redd.
Rookie Brandon Jennings - one year removed from a stint as a
bench player with Virtus Roma of the Italian League - could be the
starter at point guard, though Luke Ridnour is still on hand.
Small forward will come down to a decision between the do-everything
talents of Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and the thus-far unrealized
potential of Joe Alexander. Warrick projects as the starting
four, with Thomas backing up at the four and five spots, and Dan
Gadzuric and Charlie Bell as key subs.If that's not the worst team
in the league, it's close. Cheer up, Milwaukee fans… at least the
Packers are looking good.

Southeast Division

Atlanta Hawks (47-35)

Who’s Coming: Jeff Teague (19th), Sergiy Gladyr (49th),
Jamal Crawford (GSW), Joe Smith (CLE)

Who’s Going: Acie Law (GSW), Speedy Claxton (GSW),
Solomon Jones (IND), Flip Murray (Free Agent)

After re-signing point guard Mike Bibby and emerging forward
Marvin Williams, the Hawks will tip off the 2009-10 season with a
starting lineup that mirror last season's, and what could be a muchimproved
bench.
Bibby will man the point, sharing the backcourt with Joe Johnson.
Williams and Josh Smith are the top two forwards, and Al Horford
mans the middle. Atlanta added Jamal Crawford - an excellent
scorer and combo guard - and highly regarded Wake Forest star
Jeff Teague for backcourt depth, which should represent a major
improvement over Acie Law, the oft-injured Speedy Claxton and
Flip Murray. Mario West, Maurice Evans, Zaza Pachulia and veteran
forward Joe Smith, recently signed to a veterans minimum deal,
complete the projected rotation.

Charlotte Bobcats (35-47)

Who’s Coming: Gerald Henderson (12th), Derrick Brown (40th),
Tyson Chandler (NOR)

Who’s Going: Sean May (SAC), Emeka Okafor (NOR),
Juwan Howard (Free Agent)

The Bobcats are looking more and more like a Larry Brown team
after trading one of their original players - Emeka Okafor - for one
of the league's best defensive centers in Tyson Chandler, and
adding two energetic do-everything wing players - Duke's Gerald
Henderson and Xavier's Derrick Brown - in the draft.
A bigger shakeup may be in the offing, as the Bobcats are one of
the leading contenders to sign Allen Iverson. AI and Larry Brown
have a history, of course - Brown coached Iverson and the Sixers
to the NBA Finals back in 2001.The addition of Iverson would likely
spell the end of Raymond Felton's tenure in Charlotte.
Without Iverson, Charlotte could retain Felton; he or D.J. Augustin
would take over the starting point guard spot, with Raja Bell at the
two spot. Gerald Wallace, Charlotte's best all-around player, and
Boris Diaw are the forwards and Chandler the center, with rookies
Henderson and Brown, Alexis Ajinca and DeSagana Diop as the
second unit. An Iverson signing likely means Felton is gone,
Augustin is the starting point guard and the Bobcats look to sign a
backup floor leader.

Miami Heat (43-39)

Who’s Coming: Robert Dozier (60th), Patrick Beverley (42nd),
Quentin Richardson (NYK)

Who’s Going: Jamario Moon (CLE), Mark Blount (MIN)

Pat Riley's big offseason acquisitions: two second-round draft
picks - including the NBA's "Mr. Irrelevant," Robert Dozier - and a
veteran that's been on five different rosters since May. It seems reasonable
to suggest that Miami is working with the 2010 offseason
in mind. Of course, you can't really blame them - the Heat are in
danger of losing all-world point guard Dwyane Wade, who will be a
free agent next summer.
Riley has actually surrounded Wade with a pretty decent set of
complementary players. Point guard Mario Chalmers had a very
solid rookie season and emerged as one of the NBA's top thieves
with over two steals per game. Michael Beasley didn't dominate as
a rookie, but - assuming he works out his personal issues over the
summer - has the potential to develop into an elite combo forward
in the style of Shawn Marion. Udonis Haslem, if healthy, does all
the grunt work down low, and Jermaine O'Neal, when he's able to
stay on the floor, is a highly skilled low-post player. Chris Quinn,
Daequan Cook, Quentin Richardson and Joel Anthony comprise a
solid but decidedly unspectacular second unit.
Of course, there's no guarantee that Riley will "stand Pat" (sorry) all
season. The Heat are considered one of the leading contenders to
acquire Carlos Boozer if and when Utah decides to deal its all-star
power forward.

Orlando Magic (59-23)

Who’s Coming: Vince Carter (NJN), Brandon Bass (DAL), Matt
Barnes (PHO), Jason Williams (free agent), Ryan Anderson (NJN)

Who’s Going: Hedo Turkoglu (TOR), Courtney Lee (NJN),
Rafer Alston (NJN), Tony Battie (NJN)

An unconventional lineup with two 6-10 jump-shooting forwards
book-ending all-world center Dwight Howard was enough to get
the Magic to the NBA Finals. Magic fans are hoping a more conventional
- and more talented - lineup will be enough to win it all.
Last year's alignment, which featured Rashard Lewis and Hedo
Turkoglu at the forward spots, created matchup nightmares - especially
for the Cavs. But it also left Orlando with Courtney Lee taking
crunch-time shots against the Lakers in the Finals. This year Lee
will be replaced by a much more attractive shot-at-the-buzzer
option: Vince Carter. Orlando is hoping Carter will be re-energized
by playing for a contender, close to his hometown of Daytona.
Losing the versatile Turkoglu will hurt, but coach Stan Van Gundy
can replace his production in a couple of ways. Mickael Pietrus - an
excellent athlete and tough defender - is one option. Or, he could
go with a better offensive player in newly acquired Matt Barnes…
or shift Rashard Lewis to the three spot and use wide-body
Brandon Bass to add toughness and rebounding. In the middle,
Van Gundy has an embarrassment of riches, with Howard and the
improving Marcin Gortat.
The starting backcourt is potentially electric, with Carter teamed
with Jameer Nelson. But the trade that brought Carter to Florida
cost the Magic a lot of backcourt depth in Lee and Rafer Alston,
and left Anthony Johnson as the only backup to Nelson, who
missed the second half of last season with a shoulder injury.
Veteran point guard Jason Williams, who didn't play last season,
joins Orlando as another option at the point. J.J. Redick could
emerge as the fourth guard in Van Gundy's rotation.

Washington Wizards (19-63)

Who’s Coming: Mike Miller (MIN), Randy Foye (MIN),
Fabricio Oberto (MIL)

Who’s Going: Etan Thomas (MIN), Darius Songaila (MIN),
Oleksiy Pecherov (MIN)

The additions of Mike Miller - one of the league's top sharp-shooters,
Randy Foye - a promising young two guard - and Fabricio
Oberto - a quality big man with some skill - are nice. But the acquisition
that matters most to the Wizards this season is a player
that's been with the team since 2003: one Gilbert Arenas.
A variety of knee injuries hobbled Arenas for the last two seasons;
he played just 13 games in 2007-08 and two last season. But
reports of his workouts this summer have been universally positive,
making Wizards fans and fantasy players optimistic they'll see
Arenas back among the league leaders in scoring this season.
With Arenas back in the fold, the Wizards could be one of the most
dangerous offensive teams in the league. Arenas would man the
point, with another combo guard in Foye at the two and one of the
league's top threes, Caron Butler, on the wing. The versatile Antawn
Jamison will be back at power forward, and at center, new Wizards
coach Flip Saunders has the option of using veteran Brendan
Haywood or one of two promising athletic young bigs: JaVale
McGee or Andray Blatche. Miller, Javaris Crittenton, DeShawn
Stevenson and versatile combo forward Dominc McGuire will comprise
the second unit.

Southwest Division

Dallas Mavericks (50-32)

Who’s Coming: Rodrigue Beaubois (25th), Nick Calathes (45th),
Ahmad Nivins (56th), Drew Gooden (DAL), Quinton Ross (MEM),
Greg Buckner (MIL), Shawn Marion (TOR), Kris Humphries (TOR),
Nathan Jawai (TOR), Tim Thomas (DAL)

Who’s Going: Jerry Stackhouse (FA), Devean George (GS),
Antoine Wright (TOR), Brandon Bass (ORL), Gerald Green (FA),
James Singleton (FA)

The Mavericks were buyers in a market full of sellers. Feeling the
need to stay competitive with Dirk Nowitzki and the core of a recent
67-win team around, owner Mark Cuban spent heavily.
After the trades, the offer sheets, the free agents and the re-signed
players, the Mavericks have a boatload of proven NBA talent that
should make this as deep as any team in the West. Giving Jason
Kidd three years may tie up salary in 2011, but he's worth it for a
team looking to win now. Adding Shawn Marion will probably move
Josh Howard to shooting guard, where he's been used very little
over the last few seasons. Jason Terry will reprise his effective scoring
role off the bench.
Drew Gooden was added on the cheap both to spell Nowitzki at
power forward, and also to play minutes at center. If they could get
by with the 6-7 Brandon Bass playing the five last year, the 6-10
Gooden can certainly do it. The feeling is Erick Dampier's interior
defense is not much needed, given the paucity of scoring big men
in the West. He'll get his run on occasion, but his biggest value is
an expiring contract. When the Mavs want to go quicker, you'll see
Nowitzki, Marion and Howard up front.

Houston Rockets (53-29)

Who’s Coming: Jermaine Taylor (32nd), Sergio Llull (34th),
Chase Budinger (44th), Trevor Ariza (LAL), David Andersen (ATL),
Pops Mensah-Bonsu (TOR)

Who’s Going: Ron Artest (LAL), Dikembe Mutomobo (FA),
Von Wafer (FA)

The 2009-10 season will certainly be a test of Rick Adleman's
coaching skills. The season is done before it started, thanks to season-
ending surgery for Yao Ming (foot) and Tracy McGrady's
microfracture surgery on his left knee that leaves him out, at best,
until December. You'd be foolish to bank on someone with
McGrady's injury history playing a major role.
Where do the injuries leave the Rockets? First and foremost, they
need to fill Yao's void. Bringing in Aussie David Andersen is a start,
but he's an NBA rookie and a European big man - he can space
the floor and hit jumpers, but isn't a defensive stalwart. More likely,
we'll see the 6-9 Luis Scola and 6-8 Joey Dorsey (14.8 rpg, 2.bpg,
in summer league) getting heavy minutes in the middle. The 6-9
Carl Landry and 6-6 Chuck Hayes will also find some minutes in
Adelman's rotation of "bigs." Shane Battier and Trevor Ariza round
out the forward rotation.
It's far from certain that McGrady will be performing at a high level
or for a ton of minutes nightly. Ariza will be forced to play some
shooting guard, and we could see a mini-revival of Brent Barry's
career. Aaron Brooks and Kyle Lowry will make up one of the
league's smaller point-guard rotations. Rookies Jermaine Taylor and
Chase Budinger could find their way into the rotation because of
the McGrady situation. Budinger was the best player on the summer
league team.

Memphis Grizzlies (24-58)

Who’s Coming: Hasheem Thabeet (2nd), DeMarre Carroll (27th),
Sam Young (36th), Zach Randolph (LAC), Steven Hunter (DEN),
Marcus Williams (GS)

Who’s Going: Hakeem Warrick (MIL), Darius Miles (FA),
Quinton Ross (DAL), Greg Buckner (DAL)

We can't understand the Grizzlies' fascination with Zach Randolph.
They almost traded for him prior to the 2008-09 season, and now
they've got him. Sure he averages 20-10, but he doesn't pass well
and doesn't play defense. Nevertheless, he'll take a lot of shots as
Memphis' starting power forward. How Randolph is integrated into
the mix should impact the looks for Rudy Gay and O.J. Mayo, as
well as Darrell Arthur's playing time. If coach Lionel Hollins can get
through to Zebo, the Grizzlies will have capable scorers at all parts
of the floor.
Hasheem Thabeet was drafted to be a defender in the low post,
though he was not very good in the summer league (45% FG, five
fouls in 25 mpg). His offensive game is weak, meaning there's still a
need for Marc Gasol. The second first-round pick, DeMarre Carroll,
is a hard worker, who plays a great team game. There's a place for
him on an NBA team, but he's unlikely to make an immediate
impact.
After unimpressive stops in New Jersey and Golden State, Marcus
Williams will spell Mike Conley at point guard. Conley played his
best pro ball during the second half of last season, after briefly losing
the job to Kyle Lowry. It's doubtful Hollins can use Williams to
push Conley, as Lowry did in 2008-09.

New Orleans Hornets (49-33)

Who’s Coming: Darren Collison (21st), Marcus Thornton (43rd),
Emeka Okafor (CHA), Ike Diogu (SAC)

Who’s Going: Tyson Chandler (CHA), Rasual Butler (LAC), Ryan
Bowen (FA), Melvin Ely (FA), Sean Marks (FA)

The Hornets could be dangerous if they had a bench, but they
haven't had good luck in the draft or signing free agents. They've
been limited in what contracts they can add as Morris Peterson,
Peja Stojakovic and James Posey leave them near tax land. The tax
forced them to dump Rasual Butler, who played well last season.
And a draft pick hasn't clicked since Chris Paul in 2005. Finding a
backup for Paul hasn't been easy, and there was substantial dropoff
when Antonio Daniels was asked to lead the team. There won't
be many minutes available to Darren Collison, but he played well in
the summer league and will be given a chance to supplant Daniels.
Marcus Thornton has a chance to make an impact right away, as
the Hornets are still looking for a shooting guard. He lit up the summer
league (20.7 ppg, 45% FG).
Swapping Tyson Chandler for Emeka Okafor commits them to more
years at center, but Okafor is a horse that plays every day, and
Chandler's recent injuries had been a problem. Okafor averaged
14.0 ppg for his career with Raymond Felton and Brevin Knight as
his point guards, and he should do better playing with Paul. Ike
Diogu will be playing for his fifth team in five years. He's been relatively
productive in short minutes, but has never been given a
chance. He won't get that here, either, playing behind David West,
but should give coach Bryon Scott more than he's gotten from
Melvin Ely and Hilton Armstrong the last few years. The Hornets
remain commited to Julian Wright at small forward. Coach Byron
Scott hasn't been able to rely on Stojakovic, whose numbers are in
decline due in part to age and back problems.

San Antonio Spurs (54-28)

Who’s Coming: DeJuan Blair (37th), Jack McClinton (51st),
Nando De Colo (53rd), Richard Jefferson (MIL), Marcus Haislip
(Europe), Antonio McDyess (DET), Theo Ratliff (PHI)

Who’s Going: Fabricio Oberto (WAS), Bruce Bowen (FA),
Kurt Thomas (MIL), Jacques Vaughn (FA), Ime Udoka (FA)

The Spurs looked old at times last season, but had a great summer
and are poised to test the Lakers in 2009-10. Undoubtedly, the
biggest change is the addition of Richard Jefferson, for next to
nothing. Losing Bruce Bowen may be felt in the locker room, but he
played his fewest minutes in 10 years last season. Jefferson is a
scorer, who can take pressure off of the injury-prone Manu Ginobili.
That means a few less minutes for Michael Finley.
Antonio McDyess and Theo Ratliff appear to be natural fits for the
Spurs - role players who have a long track record of suppressing
egos. They'll be the preventative maintenance needed to keep Tim
Duncan fresh all year. Interestingly, coach Gregg Popovich thinks
second-round pick DeJuan Blair (16.7 ppg, 8.7 rpg in summer
league) can help right away.
Because Popovich likes the Spurs with Ginobili coming off the
bench, Roger Mason Jr. will survive as the team's starting shooting
guard. There's still a hole at backup point guard, though George Hill
had some success there last season. He's still learning aspects of
being a floor general, after primarily being a scorer at IUPUI.

Denver Nuggets (54-28)

Who’s Coming: Ty Lawson (18th), Aaron Afflalo (DET), Malik Allen (MIL)

Who’s Going: Dahntay Jones (IND), Linas Kleiza (Europe),
Sonny Weems (TOR), Steven Hunter (MEM), Johan Petro (FA)

The Nuggets gave the Lakers a scare in the playoffs, so it would
seem all that's needed is some tweaking around the edges.
Unfortunately, the Nuggets are hamstrung by payroll issues and
could not retain Linas Kleiza or Dahntay Jones, so they're looking
to add rotation pieces on the cheap.
After re-signing Chris Andersen, Denver returns six of its rotation
members, including the starting five of Chauncey Billups, J.R.
Smith, Carmelo Anthony, Kenyon Martin and Nene. They'll need to
add a few more players before the season starts, with a reported
interest in Wally Szczerbiak. If they're considering Szczerbiak, that
means the Nuggets are concerned about losing Kleiza's scoring
ability off the bench. Aaron Afflalo figures to have a bigger role with
in Denver than he had with the Pistons - he got caught up in lineup
re-shuffling in Detroit. Afflalo's a good defender - don't underestimate
the need for that skill on this team - who can handle the ball
enough to spot at point guard and can score. They might ask him
to play some small forward, too. Ty Lawson, considered the point
guard of the future, will not get a ton of minutes as a rookie.
Especially after the team re-signed Anthony Carter. Denver could
never get a consistently healthy Steven Hunter, so he was jettisoned
for a draft pick. To replace him off the bench, the Nuggets
acquired Malik Allen from Milwaukee for Sonny Weems and Walter
Sharpe. Allen has a midrange scoring game, which can come in
handy, but he won't get enough playing time to help as a scorer,
unless Martin's knee acts up again.

Minnesota Timberwolves (24-58)

Who’s Coming: Ricky Rubio (5th), Jonny Flynn (6th),
Wayne Ellington (28th), Henk Norel (47th), Ryan Hollins (DAL),
Darius Songaila (WAS), Oleksiy Pecherov (WAS), Mark Blount (MIA),
Damien Wilkins (OKC)

Who’s Going: Randy Foye (WAS), Mike Miller (WAS),
Sebastian Telfair (LAC), Craig Smith (LAC), Mark Madsen (FA),
Shelden Williams (BOS), Jason Collins (FA), Rodney Carney (FA)

Even with an offseason in which four members of the rotation were
traded, the change with the most impact comes at head coach.
The Timberwolves fired Kevin McHale and hired Kurt Rambis, who
leaves a successful gig as an assistant coach for the NBA champion
Lakers. In an open letter to fans, who appear to be reinvigorated
by the regime change, Rambis said he is looking forward to working
with the team's young players.
And those young players are in the backcourt, where the T-Wolves
are experiencing the most change. Ricky Rubio, who still hasn't
negotiated a buyout from his European team, is the most important
of those young players. If he remains in Europe this season, Jonny
Flynn, (15 ppg, 7.4 apg and 58% 3pt in summer league) will open
the season at point guard. Chucky Atkins is a veteran that could
help Flynn or Rubio learn the NBA game, but only as a backup,
until his expiring contract makes him valuable to another team.
After dispatching Randy Foye, Mike Miller and Rashad McCants,
the Timberwolves are looking for a shooting guard to pair with one
of the rookie points. Rambis may not want to use an all-rookie
backcourt, though Wayne Ellington is a scorer they could use at the
two. Ellington should earn a decent chunk of playing time off the
bench. An outside scorer is needed, but a perimeter defender, like
Corey Brewer, could win the starting job. If he can develop a more
consistent shot, so much the better.
The front court is much more stable with Ryan Gomes (SF), Al
Jefferson (PF) and Kevin Love (C) back. Darius Songaila should
earn backup minutes at power forward, and can space the floor to
allow Jefferson or Love to work in the low post. Ryan Hollins adds
depth at center. Oleksiy Pecherov is a big man who plays more like
a small forward. He's not rugged enough to bang in the paint, but
needs more consistent shooting to have an impact for Minnesota.

Oklahoma City Thunder (23-59)

Who’s Coming: James Harden (3rd), Byron Mullens (24th),
Robert Vaden (54th), Serge Ibaka (Spain), Etan Thomas (MIN),
Kevin Ollie (PHI)

Who’s Going: Earl Watson (IND), Chucky Atkins (MIN),
Damien Wilkins (MIN), Desmond Mason (FA)

The youth movement in OKC continues into 2009-10 as they swept
out veterans Earl Watson, Chucky Atkins, Damien Wilkins and
Desmond Mason. Each was a member of the rotation at various
points, so there are opportunities for new bodies. First-round pick
James Harden won't start right away at shooting guard, but he
should be the second unit's main scorer. He averaged 15 points a
game in nine summer league games. We expect Thabo Sefolosha,
a good defender, to start at the two with Kyle Weaver also in the
mix. Rounding out the backcourt rotation is Russell Westbrook at
the point with Shaun Livingston and Kevin Ollie backing him up.
The Thunder's biggest hole, something they brought with them on
the move from Seattle, is at center. Byron (BJ) Mullens is not ready
to step into an NBA job just yet, so the Thunder will have to get by
with Nenad Krstic and Etan Thomas in the low post. If it's scoring
they want, Krstic will start. If it's defense and toughness they want,
Thomas will start. The frontcourt will also feature Jeff Green at
power forward and Kevin Durant at small forward, who, along with
Westbrook, are the primary building blocks of the franchise.

Portland Trailblazers (54-28)

Who’s Coming: Victor Claver (22nd), Jeff Pendergraph (31st),
Dante Cunningham (33rd), Patrick Mills (55th), Andre Miller (PHI),

Who’s Going: Channing Frye (PHO), Sergio Rodriguez (SAC)

The Blazers lost out on their top two free-agent targets, when Hedo
Turkoglu swerved to Toronto at the last minute, and Utah matched
their offer sheet for Paul Millsap. Andre Miller isn't a bad haul, and
he comes cheaply (two years, $13 million, team option for third
year) and motivated after very tepid interest in the free agent market.
He should spell Steve Blake at point guard initially, but it
wouldn't surprise us to see Miller log more minutes and eventually
take the job. Miller will probably spell Brandon Roy at the two also.
Jerryd Bayless is pushed further down the guard rotation because
of the signing, but he could push Blake before long. The Blazers
worked him hard as a ball handler in the summer league with mixed
results. Miller gives him a two-year cushion to develop as a point
guard.
Up front, there's still a three-way at small forward, with Martell
Webster returning from a foot injury, Nicolas Batum and Travis
Outlaw. LaMarcus Aldridge and Greg Oden will continue to start at
power forward and center, respectively. As evidenced by their grab
for Millsap, the Blazers feel a little thin in the frontcourt with the exit
of Channing Frye. If any of the draft picks are to make any impact,
it will be Jeff Pendergraph at power forward. First-round pick Victor
Claver, 20, is a few years away from the NBA.

Utah Jazz (48-34)

Who’s Coming: Eric Maynor (20th), Goran Suton (50th)

Who’s Going: Morris Almond (FA), Jarron Collins (FA),
Brevin Knight (FA)

We're still waiting for the most significant change in Utah to happen.
Carlos Boozer disappointed the team by not opting out of the
final year of his contract. With him on the books and the team
needing to match Portland's offer sheet to Paul Millsap, there's an
obvious surplus of salary at power forward.
Everyone is expecting Boozer to be traded, which means Millsap
will eventually see the biggest increase in fantasy value. That also
leaves the question of what the Jazz can get in return for Boozer,
whether a wing player or power forward, and how that could impact
the rotation. In another significant non-change transaction, the Jazz
extended Mehmet Okur for two years. He and Millsap (if Boozer is
traded) figure to start games up front along with small forward
Andrei Kirilenko or swing player C.J. Miles. Off the bench, we've
probably seen the last of Matt Harpring. He averaged just 11 minutes
last season. Kosta Koufos has likely moved ahead of Kyrylo
Fesenko at center, but the backup center job is far from settled.
Hence the chance taken on Goran Suton. The backcourt starters of
Deron Williams and Ronnie Brewer remain in place. First-round pick
Eric Maynor may have a hard time beating out Ronnie Price to be
Williams' backup. That's how coach Jerry Sloan rolls with rookies.
Kyle Korver will be the third guard in the rotation, and Miles will
play some, too.

Pacific Division

Golden State Warriors (29-53)

Who’s Coming: Stephen Curry (7th), Acie Law (ATL),
Speedy Claxton (ATL), Devean George (TOR), Mikki Moore (BOS)

Who’s Going: Jamal Crawford (ATL), Jermareo Davidson (FA),
Marco Belinelli (TOR), Rob Kurz (CLE)

Warriors coach Don Nelson enters the season with another roster
filled with wings and not enough distributors, defenders or
rebounders. It's hard to predict how Nelson will construct his rotation,
let alone the starting lineup, so playing hunches on a Golden
State sleeper is a roll of the dice.
Season 2 of the Monta Ellis-to-point guard experiment will continue.
He never really settled in last season after coming back from an
ankle injury, but given the structure of this team, it's the most likely
position for him. Golden State got next to nothing for Jamal
Crawford, though we'll have to see how Acie Law responds to the
freewheeling offense in the Bay. Stephen Curry wasn't bashful
about taking his shots in the summer league and should be the
number three guard, if he isn't starting at shooting guard. If Nelson
chooses to use Stephen Jackson, the team's best distributor, at
shooting guard, Curry will have to get his looks in fewer minutes.
Where C.J. Watson and Anthony Morrow fit will change nightly.
Jackson could also line up at small forward, where there's no shortage
of candidates. Corey Maggette and Kelenna Azubuike will need
their time. Anthony Randolph (26.8 ppg, 60.9% FG) was a beast for
the organization's summer league team, and Nelson should find a
way to get him starters' minutes at power forward. Andris Biedrins
will start at center with Ronny Turiaf an able backup.

Los Angeles Clippers (19-63)

Who’s Coming: Blake Griffin (1st), Sebastian Telfair (MIN),
Craig Smith (MIN), Rasual Butler (NO)

Who’s Going: Zach Randolph (MEM), Mike Taylor (FA),
Brian Skinner (FA), Fred Jones (FA), Alex Acker (FA)

The Clippers did a lot right during the offseason, adding some complementary
pieces for the bench and not screwing up the first overall
pick. That's two straight scores in the first round, after adding
Eric Gordon to the roster in 2008. To clear the power forward spot
for Blake Griffin, who averaged 19.2 points and 10.8 rebounds in
summer league, the Clippers traded away Zach Randolph. Griffin
suffered a shoulder injury during the summer, but all reports indicate
he'll be ready for training camp.
When all was said and done, the haul from Randolph was
Sebastian Telfair and Craig Smith. Those two should provide quality
depth at point guard (Baron Davis) and power forward (Griffin),
respectively. Adding Rasual Butler is another nod to bench
strength. He and Ricky Davis will shift between small forward (Al
Thornton) and shooting guard (Gordon). Rounding out the lineup at
center will be a combination of Chris Kaman and Marcus Camby.
DeAndre Jordan should see a slight uptick in minutes, but he won't
get the kind of playing time that helps a fantasy team until Camby
is gone after this season or by February's trade deadline.

Los Angeles Lakers (65-17)

Who’s Coming: Chinemelu Elonu (59th), Ron Artest (HOU)

Who’s Going: Sun Yue (FA), Trevor Ariza (HOU)

The Lakers did nothing to worsen their chances of repeating as
NBA champions. As important as Trevor Ariza was to this team,
Ron Artest can fulfill every role Ariza handled - only with a better
offensive game and with a bit more "flair." Artest will slot in at small
forward with Pau Gasol at the four and Andrew Bynum at center.
Bynum was largely MIA in the postseason, so re-signing Lamar
Odom was the most important offseason development. Odom will
come off the bench, but will also be on the court with Gasol.
Nothing much will change in the backcourt as Kobe Bryant and
Derek Fisher return as starters. The club re-signed Shannon Brown
to join Jordan Farmar and Sasha Vujacic as support.

Phoenix Suns (46-36)

Who’s Coming: Earl Clark (14th), Taylor Griffin (48th),
Channing Frye (POR), Sasha Pavlovic (CLE)

Who’s Going: Shaquille O'Neal (CLE), Matt Barnes (ORL)

We're still a little angry with Phoenix general manager Steve Kerr for
turning the most exciting team in the NBA into a dull and not-verysuccessful
half-court squad last year. But after he traded Shaquille
O'Neal and extended Steve Nash for another two seasons, it
appears Kerr learned his lesson.
If Amar'e Stoudemire returns from an eye injury - he's begun working
out and should be ready for court work in September - he'll
replace O'Neal as the starting center. He can opt out of his contract
after this season and should be a motivated player, especially after
an offseason in which his name kept coming up in trade rumors.
Channing Frye, who can run the floor the way coach Alvin Gentry
wants, could be in line for a huge increase in playing time at power
forward. Nash, Jason Richardson and the re-signed Grant Hill
return as the other starters.
Beyond combo guard Leandro Barbosa, the Suns are a little thin off
the bench. That's a problem with teams that have been dealing
with the luxury tax and shedding salaries, as Phoenix has. They get
rid of players like O'Neal and waive the players they get in return -
Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic (not waived yet, but almost certain
to be). Jared Dudley and rookie Earl Clark will be given the chance
to back up the injury-prone Hill at the three. Robin Lopez enters his
second year and will be the primary backup down low.

Sacramento Kings (17-65)

Who’s Coming: Tyreke Evans (4th), Omri Casspi (23rd),
Jon Brockman (38th), Sean May (CHA) , Sergio Rodriguez (POR)

Who’s Going: Calvin Booth (FA), Bobby Jackson (FA),
Rashad McCants (FA), Cedric Simmons (FA)

Coming off a 17-win season, the Kings face an uncertain future in
Sacramento and a declining fan base that wore the purple passion
all those years when they were regular contenders. Into the fray
jumps new coach Paul Westphal, who becomes the team's fourth
head coach in three years. He inherits some guys that can play, but
last year's team was weak defensively and was routinely outrebounded.
We're not expecting big things right away from the
coach, but there should be some changes.
The starting spots that are locked up are Kevin Martin at shooting
guard, Jason Thompson at power forward and Spencer Hawes at
center. Hawes ticked off management by not playing for the summer
league team, but there's no one else on the current roster that
can log big minutes at center. At small forward, this could be the
year Francisco Garcia locks down a full time gig in the starting lineup,
though Andres Nocioni played well in 23 games for
Sacramento. Nocioni plays hard defense and is a good rebounder
for his size - both of which are needed by the team - so he'll get
plenty of minutes as a starter or on the second unit. The Kings'
second first-round selection, Omri Casspi, is a playmaking small
forward who could work his way into the rotation, though the Israeli
import struggled in the summer league. Bringing in Sean May for a
look isn't a terrible idea, but he was out of shape and coming of
two knee operations last season. Westphal would do better by giving
backup minutes to Donte Greene.
The long range plan for combo guard Tyreke Evans is to play at
point guard, but Westphal isn't anointing him a starter yet. He was
more of a scorer in college, so it'll take time for him to learn the
point in the NBA. He'll likely have to settle for backing up Martin at
the two, while Beno Udrih and Sergio Rodriguez, acquired from
Portland, get most of the point-guard minutes.
