New deals with:

Preseason schedule:

Preseason schedule:  

  • Oct. 3 vs. Sacramento Kings

  • Oct. 6 vs. Minnesota Timberwolves at Las Vegas
  • Oct. 9 at Golden State Warriors

One believed on the Lakers:  There’s no lack of stories circling around the Lakers, however the one that has one of the most effect is Anthony Davis’ health. If he’s hobbled once again, then it’ll be another lost year for LeBron James and the Lakers.

  • Oct. 7 vs. Miami Heat
  • Oct. 11 at Orlando Magic
  • Oct. 13 at Detroit Pistons

One believed on the Grizzlies:  Memphis has shown it’s all set to compete with the very best in a hard Western Conference, however can it build on last season’s success in an even harder Western Conference?

  • Oct. 4 vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
  • Oct. 6 at Brooklyn Nets

  • Oct. 10 vs. Houston Rockets
  • Oct. 12 vs. New Orleans Pelicans

One believed on the Heat:  After not landing Donovan Mitchell or Kevin Durant, Miami is relying on connection to bring them this season. But time will inform if that will suffice to stay up to date with other groups in the East that have actually enhanced. 

Milwaukee Bucks

Training camp begins: Saturday, Sept. 24

New deals with:

  • Joe Ingles (totally free representative)
  • MarJon Beauchamp (prepared No. 24)

  • Oct. 6 vs. Atlanta Hawks at Abu Dhabi
  • Oct. 8 vs. Atlanta Hawks at Abu Dhabi
  • Oct. 11 at Chicago Bulls
  • Oct. 12 vs. Brooklyn Nets

One believed on the Bucks: It seems like the result of this season will figure out Milwaukee’s course forward. Another journey to the NBA Finals — and possibly a title — might press the Bucks even more down the “run it back” technique. But what takes place if they fall in the 2nd round once again?

New Orleans Pelicans

Training camp begins: Tuesday, Sept. 27

New deals with:

  • Dyson Daniels (prepared No. 8)
  • EJ Liddell (prepared No. 41)

  • Oct 4 at Chicago Bulls
  • Oct. 7 vs. Detroit Pistons
  • Oct. 9 at San Antonio Spurs
  • Oct. 12 at Miami Heat
  • Oct. 14 vs. Atlanta Hawks at Birmingham, Ala.

One believed on the Pelicans: New Orleans made the playoffs without Zion Williamson last season, so think of just how much better they can be when he’s healthy.  

New York Knicks

Training camp begins: Tuesday, Sept. 27

New deals with:

Preseason schedule:  

  • Oct. 4 vs. Detroit Pistons
  • Oct. 7 vs. Indiana Pacers
  • Oct. 12 at Indiana Pacers
  • Oct. 14 vs. Washington Wizards

One believed on the Knicks:  Will Brunson be the secret to a renewed Julius Randle and a journey back to the playoffs?  

Oklahoma City Thunder

  • Oct. 3 at Denver Nuggets
  • Oct. 5 vs. Dallas Mavericks at Tulsa, Okla.
  • Oct. 6 vs. Adelaide 36ers

  • Oct. 11 at Detroit Pistons
  • Oct. 13 at San Antonio Spurs

Orlando Magic

Training camp begins: Tuesday, Sept. 27

New deals with:

Preseason schedule:  

  • Oct. 3 at Memphis Grizzlies
  • Oct. 6 at San Antonio Spurs
  • Oct. 7 at Dallas Mavericks
  • Oct. 11 vs. Memphis Grizzlies
  • Oct. 14 vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

One believed on the Magic: Banchero’s novice season suffices to be delighted about Orlando’s upcoming season, however after seeing how well Franz Wagner searched in EuroBasket, his development might have the possible to eclipse that. 

Philadelphia 76ers

Training camp begins: Tuesday, Sept. 27

New deals with:

Preseason schedule:  

  • Oct. 3 at Brooklyn Nets
  • Oct. 5 vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
  • Oct. 10 at Cleveland Cavaliers
  • Oct. 12 vs. Charlotte Hornets

One believed on the 76ers:  In 3 of the last 4 seasons the Sixers have actually been bounced in the 2nd round of the playoffs, and while Doc Rivers has actually just been the head coach for 2 of those playoff exits, you need to question if he’s on the hot spot if Philadelphia does not make it to the conference finals.    

Phoenix Suns

Training camp begins: Tuesday, Sept. 27

New deals with:

Preseason schedule:  

  • Oct. 2 vs. Adelaide 36ers
  • Oct. 5 vs. Los Angeles Lakers at Las Vegas
  • Oct. 10 at Denver Nuggets
  • Oct. 12 vs. Sacramento Kings

One believed on the Suns: The Robert Sarver news aside, seeing how Phoenix reacts after the unexpected second-round playoff exit will be a crucial story to follow. The last time we saw Chris Paul play he appeared like Father Time was following him, so seeing how this group recuperates will be interesting.  

Portland Trail Blazers

Training camp begins: Tuesday, Sept. 27

New deals with:

Preseason schedule:

  • Oct. 3 vs. Los Angeles Clippers at Seattle
  • Oct. 4 vs. Utah Jazz
  • Oct. 6 vs. Ra’anana Maccabi Ra’anana
  • Oct. 9 at Sacramento Kings
  • Oct. 11 at Golden State Warriors

One believed on the Blazers:  Jerami Grant was Portland’s huge get this offseason, and he will definitely enhance this group together with Damian Lillard. But will it suffice to break through the middle-of-the-pack in the West? Probably not.   

Sacramento Kings

Training camp begins:  Tuesday, Sept. 27

New deals with:

Preseason schedule:  

  • Oct. 3 at Los Angeles Lakers
  • Oct. 9 vs. Portland Trail Blazers
  • Oct. 12 at Phoenix Suns
  • Oct. 14 vs. Los Angeles Lakers

One believed on the Kings:  The Kings can compete for a play-in area, and in spite of what you think about the Tyrese Haliburton trade, if they make the play-in it must be viewed as a terrific advance for this franchise. 

San Antonio Spurs

Training camp begins:  Tuesday, Sept. 27

New deals with:

Preseason schedule:

  • Oct. 2 at Houston Rockets
  • Oct. 6 vs. Orlando Magic
  • Oct. 9 vs. New Orleans Pelicans
  • Oct. 11 at Utah Jazz
  • Oct. 13 vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

One believed on the Spurs: After trading Dejounte Murray, the Spurs remain in a prime position to tank the season — I indicate lose a lot of video games and end up landing declared possibility Victor Wembanyama. 

Toronto Raptors

Training camp begins:  Tuesday, Sept. 27

New deals with:

Preseason schedule:  

  • Oct. 2 vs. Utah Jazz at Edmonton
  • Oct. 5 at Boston Celtics
  • Oct. 7 at Houston Rockets
  • Oct. 9 vs. Chicago Bulls
  • Oct. 14 vs. Boston Celtics at Montreal

One believed on the Raptors:  Both Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet were obstructed with injuries last season, and the Raptors still ended up fifth in the East. With those 2 healthy in addition to Toronto’s young core, this group might amaze some folks when again.    

Utah Jazz

Training camp begins:  Tuesday, Sept. 27

New deals with:

Preseason schedule:  

  • Oct. 2 vs. Toronto Raptors at Edmonton
  • Oct. 4 at Portland Trail Blazers
  • Oct. 11 vs. San Antonio Spurs
  • Oct. 14 vs. Dallas Mavericks

One believed on the Jazz:  Sexton having totally free reign on Utah’s offense is the primary plot point. But the secondary plot is the length of time is Danny Ainge going to keep Jordan Clarkson, Bojan Bogdanovic and Mike Conley?      

Washington Wizards

Training camp begins:  Saturday, Sept. 24

New deals with:

Preseason schedule:  

  • Sept. 30 vs. Golden State Warriors at Saitama, Japan
  • Oct. 2 vs. Golden State Warriors at Saitama, Japan
  • Oct. 10 at Charlotte Hornets
  • Oct. 14 at New York Knicks

One believed on the Wizards: This season will have to do with finding out what group of gamers work best around Bradley Beal and Kristaps Porzingis, and if the Wizards can figure that out they might compete for a play-in area.
