Team 2012-13 Record Roster Changes 1. Indiana 49-32 + Copeland, Watson, rookies -Hansbrough, Pendergraph 2. Chicago 45-37 + Dunleavy, rookies - Belinelli, Hamilton 3. Milwaukee 38-44 + Delfino, Mayo, Pachulia, Ridnour, rookies - Dunleavy, Mbah a Moute, Redick 4. Detroit 29-53 + C-Bill, Datome, Smith, rookies - Calderon 5. Cleveland 24-58 + Bynum, Clark, Jack, rookies -Casspi, Ellington, Livingston Speights Indiana will be there and will be a primary contender for the 1st. They are a proven team and they upgraded with Copeland and Watson while holding the remainder of their roster intact. They also added McMillan to their coaching staff. Chicago will depend on Rose's health. I would also expect that Bulls are going to look to make some other moves after signing Dunleavy. Looks like Robinson may be leaving, so it looks like the team will need an insurance policy at PG. They are also working on the long-term deal with Deng. If Rose is healthy, the Bulls will be a top challenger to Indiana. Milwaukee is in precarious position due to the FA situation. Jennings is restricted and team seems to be in no hurry to sign him as they are pursuing Teague with the offer sheet while Atlanta has 3 days to decide whether they want to match. If they don't match, it would be a definite upgrade at the PG position and mean that Jennings is gone (maybe in a sign-and-trade with Atlanta). Ellis is unrestricted and looking to leave. It is tough to predict how this team will look, but unless they make other moves I don't see them being any better than last year's record, maybe worse. Detroit we all know about. Expectations are definitely higher with the signing of Smith. How high will depend on the development of Knight and Drummond and chemistry in the front court. Could finish 3rd in the division. Cleveland has potentially gotten better depending on the health of Bynum's knee. Jack is a strong addition and a good insurance policy if Kyrie is forced to miss any time due to health issues. The team also has a glut of bigs, so I would expect more moves to balance the roster. This team could be potentially very good depending on development of Waiters, health of Bynum, and other moves that team will put together.
