Southeast Division

1. Washington Wizards

The window is starting to close, but with a healthy John Wall and Bradley Beal, they should remain contenders.

2. Miami Heat

They were sneaky good last year and could make a sizable jump in the East.

3. Charlotte Hornets

Without a true identity it could become an interesting year with Kemba Walker in a contract year.

4. Orlando Magic

Yet another coaching change has me wondering exactly what this franchise wants to do.

5. Atlanta Hawks

The rebuild is in full swing and they’re off to a good start with Trae Young.
