Another year of experience has been logged for Luka Doncic and this player is still improving at a fast rate. He is coming off from an impressive run at the Tokyo Olympics and shows more promise than ever heading to his fourth season in the NBA. His tandem with Kristaps Porzingis will need to improve this season and expect both players to go all out. Wing shooters Tim Hardaway Jr. and Dorian Finney-Smith continue to be reliable players receiving the open pass from Doncic. Jalen Brunson is going to help the team when they go small ball over their opponents.

The Charlotte Hornets showed a lot of potential with their roster last season and managed to reach the play-in tournament. They hope to keep the roster intact as the team was plagued with injuries to Gordon Hayward and LaMelo Ball last year. Now in his sophomore year, Ball is expected to get more touches, especially since Devonte Graham is not on the roster anymore. PJ Washington and Miles Bridges are also expected to take their game higher. Mason Plumlee had a good season with the Detroit Pistons last year and he will be the starting center for the team, bringing his great court vision and rebounding ability.
