The former New Jersey Nets had a big summer, and they take with them a new starting lineup into the Barclays Center for 2013.
The addition of Joe Johnson is huge for this team, and bringing back Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallace rounds out the rotation, but a healthy Brook Lopez may just be the biggest addition of all.
After a roller-coaster summer, the Dallas Mavericks bring a drastically different starting lineup into the 2012-13 season.
Dirk Nowitzki is still the star, and Shawn Marion is sticking around, but O.J. Mayo, Darren Collison and Chris Kaman give this team a whole new look.
Collison is a very good, young point guard. Kaman is a proven big man when healthy, and Mayo, despite his inconsistencies, has the talent to become a primary scoring option when Nowitzki calls it quits.
The Indiana Pacers spent a lot of money to retain Roy Hibbert and George Hill, and as a result, they’re back on the path to challenge the Miami Heat for the second straight season.
David West hasn't put up the numbers with the Pacers that he did in New Orleans, but with so much talent around him—including Danny Granger—he doesn't have to.
The Pacers also have an up-and-coming guard in Paul George, so if the team can stay together, they’re going to make up one of the grittiest starting units in the entire NBA.
