Southeast Division


1. Miami Heat

This is the perfect time for them to retake the division and make some noise come playoff time.

2. Orlando Magic

They certainly stack up as a playoff team, but can they get out of the first round?

3. Washington Wizards

John Wall isn’t expected to play this season. Should they be expected to make a playoff push?

4. Atlanta Hawks

The rebuild continues and they came away with two excellent lottery picks to go along with Trae Young.

5. Charlotte Hornets

It’s going to be a painful, but necessary rebuild to get away from the bad contracts they’ve dolled out over the years.
