12 | New Orleans HORNETS

The Hornets solidified their future in June, when Saints owner Tom Benson bought the team for $338 million and the draft yielded stars-in-waiting Anthony Davis (the No. 1 pick from Kentucky) and Austin Rivers (taken 10th out of Duke). Succeeding in the present will be more challenging. New Orleans's offense sputtered last season, averaging 89.6 points per game, second fewest in the NBA. The acquisition of Ryan Anderson—last year's Most Improved Player—in a sign-and-trade with the Magic should at least boost the team's terrible three-point shooting (33.3%).
