A shift to power forward should help sharpshooting 7-footer Andrea Bargnani, and swingman DeMar DeRozan (19.9 ppg after the All-Star break) could become an elite scorer. New coach Dwane Casey, the mastermind of the Mavericks' defense last season, should upgrade a unit that finished last in the league in points allowed per possession.
What they need
With No. 1 pick Jonas Valanciunas spending the season in Lithuania, the Raptors have a hole in the middle—likely filled by Reggie Evans or Ed Davis—and little money to spend on an upgrade. Another scorer to complement DeRozan would help too.
It's a rebuilding year in Toronto, where Casey will try to further the development of Bargnani and DeRozan, while president Bryan Colangelo will look to add cheap, short-term pieces that won't tie up cap space beyond this season.
