COACH: Scott Brooks (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Ish Smith (8.9 ppg with Detroit), G Bradley Beal (25.6 ppg), F Rui Hachimura (19.7 ppg with Gonzaga), F Davis Bertans (8.0 ppg with San Antonio), C Thomas Bryant (10.5 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Jeff Green, F Trevor Ariza, F Markieff Morris, C Dwight Howard, F Sam Dekker, F Jabari Parker, F Bobby Portis, G Tomas Satoransky.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Rui Hachimura, G Ish Smith, G-F C.J. Miles, F Moe Wagner, G-F Isaac Bonga, F Davis Bertans, G-F Admiral Schofield, G Justin Robinson, G Justin Anderson, G Isaiah Thomas.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: As Washington tries to find a way forward with a mostly new roster after losing 50 games, everyone in a Wizards uniform will be judged for his possible role in the future. The most scrutiny will fall on two players: rookie Rui Hachimura, a first-round draft pick from Gonzaga, and All-Star shooting guard Bradley Beal. With Hachimura, it's about adapting to the pro game and seeing how much potential he has. With Beal, undoubtedly Washington's best player and closest thing now to a transcendent star, it's about whether he can up his level even more ... and where he will attempt to do that. Will he commit to the Wizards and will they build around him? Or will they start over even more completely by trading him?
OUTLOOK: With John Wall out for most, and maybe all, of the season after rupturing his Achilles tendon, plus several other offseason injuries, and a wholesale revamping of the roster under way, new GM Tommy Sheppard knows that there is no point in aiming for any particular win total, let alone the playoffs. So instead of the sort of grand pronouncements about quantifiable goals that were so common with this club in the past, Sheppard is emphasizing the importance of development ' figuring out who can do what and who should be a part of the long-term plan. The Wizards are not going to be very good in 2019-20, but they are hoping this will be the start of moving in the right direction.
DALLAS: LAST SEASON: 33-49, finished tied for 12th in Western Conference.
COACH: Rick Carlisle (12th season with Mavericks, 470-416; 18th season overall, 751-627).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Luka Doncic (21.2 ppg), G Delon Wright (12.2 with Memphis), G-F Justin Jackson (8.2), F Kristaps Porzingis (sidelined by knee injury), C Dwight Powell (10.6).
KEY LOSSES: F Dirk Nowitzki, G Devin Harris, C Salah Mejri.
KEY ADDITIONS: Wright, G Seth Curry, F Isaiah Roby.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The world will be watching the Euro pair of Doncic and Porzingis, literally. The Mavericks are headliners internationally now that the 20-year-old rookie of the year from Slovenia and the 7-foot-3 Latvian are finally getting to play together. Dallas held Porzingis out for the last two months last season after the blockbuster trade that brought him from New York, even though he could have played. Their debut together is even more intriguing since it's Dallas' first season without Nowitzki, the German superstar who retired after setting an NBA record by playing all 21 seasons with the same franchise. The biggest question is who among the role players will emerge. Keep an eye on Wright. The Mavericks liked him in the 2015 draft. AD
OUTLOOK: The Mavericks wanted to sign a significant piece in free agency after the trading-deadline addition of Porzingis, who had just been named a 2018 All-Star before the knee injury that sidelined him for 20 months. They had to settle on Wright as a restricted free agent in a sign-and-trade with Memphis, so Dallas will lean heavily on Doncic and Porzingis while trying to get back to the playoffs after missing three straight seasons. It's the longest stretch without the postseason for the franchise since it was among the worst in sports coming out of the 1990s. It won't be easy in the West. The Mavericks will exceed expectations if they contend for a playoff spot.
Porzingis brings new blood as Mavs open vs. Wizards

Kristaps Porzingis will make his Dallas debut when the Mavericks host the Washington Wizards in the season opener for both teams on Wednesday night.

Porzingis, who missed last season while recovering from an ACL injury, averaged 22.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks in 2017-18 for the New York Knicks and will be looking to help the Mavericks end a three-year playoff drought.

The Mavericks also added guards Delon Wright and Seth Curry, who returns to Dallas after spending last season with the Portland Trail Blazers and will look to make defenses pay for focusing on Porzingis and Luka Doncic, the NBA's Rookie of the Year last season.

"I don't think guys will ever leave me wide open, but hopefully I can create space for those guys by my presence out there," Curry told the team's website. "Obviously, they're going to have the ball a lot, and they're both willing and great passers."

One way the Mavericks can improve their postseason chances is with a better opening month. Their last three season starts have been 2-7, 1-10 and 2-13.

"We've got to be a fast-start team, start off fast and then take it from there," guard J.J. Barea told the Dallas Morning News. "The first five games are going to be huge. That little thing right there, get a little confidence in the beginning, I think is going to carry us a long way."

Dallas will likely open its 40th season without projected starting center Dwight Powell, who strained his left hamstring on Oct. 5 and has not gone through a full practice since.

"It's getting there," Powell told reporters on Monday. "Don't want to rush anything too quickly. We want to make sure that when I come back, I can compete at the highest level possible."

Washington opens the season with a lot of new faces, including having someone other than John Wall in the point guard spot for the first time in nine seasons.

The Wizards signed veteran Isaiah Thomas, 30, to a one-year minimum deal in July to fill the spot until Wall's return from an Achilles injury.

Though Thomas' recovery from left thumb surgery is progressing quickly, he may not be ready to start on opening night, meaning Ish Smith would be in the backcourt with Bradley Beal. Thomas completed his first full practice on Sunday and is making coach Scott Brooks' decision about the opener a difficult one.

"The last couple of days he's been catching the ball with no problems," Brooks said Sunday. "He's played in some practice the last [week], but today he went the entirety. We're going to make that decision on what's best for him long term. I'd love to have him for the first game, but we'll see. Probably not, but we'll see."

The Wizards are also expected the be without small forward Troy Brown Jr. (calf injury) Wednesday night.

Beal signed a contract extension during the preseason that will keep him in Washington at least through the 2021-22 season.

"This is where I've been for the last seven years, going on eight, and I have an opportunity to turn this thing around," Beal said of opting to stay for the Wizards rebuild.

Last season, the two-time All-Star became the first player in franchise history to average at least 25 points, five rebounds and five assists per game. He averaged 26.7 points per game after the All-Star break.

The Wizards' starting lineup against the Mavericks is also likely to include 22-year-old center Thomas Bryant, the team's second-leading scorer (18.2 points per game) behind Beal last season, and rookie power forward Rui Hachimura.

Washington, which opens with three road games in four nights, hasn't won in Dallas since 2009.
