Southeast Division

1. Atlanta Hawks

Adding Dwight Howard gives them a presence in the paint they haven’t seen since Dikembe Mutombo.

2. Charlotte Hornets

Their frontcourt depth puts them in the upper echelon of the conference.

3. Washington Wizards

With a new coach maybe they can still salvage the current roster structure and have a longer playoff stay.

4. Orlando Magic

The future is looking pretty intriguing for the franchise.

5. Miami Heat

Losing Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh has put them back into obscurity.
