COACH: John Beilein (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Collin Sexton (16.7 ppg), G Darius Garland (Rookie), F Cedi Osman (13.0 ppg), F Kevin Love (17.0 ppg, 22 games), Tristan Thompson (10.9 ppg, 10.2 rpg).
KEY LOSSES: F Channing Frye, G J.R. Smith.
KEY ADDITIONS: Beilein, Garland, C/F John Henson, G Kevin Porter Jr., G Dylan Windler.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Garland could accelerate the Cavs' rebuilding project. Before a left knee injury cut short his freshman season at Vanderbilt, the 6-foot-2 playmaker was ranked as the top player in his class, ahead of even Zion Williamson. His pairing with Sexton gives Cleveland a young, dynamic backcourt drawing comparisons to Portland's duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Sexton's growth as a rookie was extraordinary, and it will be interesting to see how he blends with Garland, who is more of a traditional point guard. Love's future, which is always in question, could hinge on how quickly the team's youngsters bloom. If the Cavs get the right offer, Love could be traded despite his hopes to stay with Cleveland.
OUTLOOK: Beilein's forte in college was player development and the former Michigan coach appears to be an ideal fit for Cleveland's youth movement. He'll push the Cavs and make sure they play hard, and Love and Thompson will give the squad invaluable leadership. Injuries have sidetracked Love the past few seasons, but the 31-year-old feels physically refreshed and is committed to showing his young teammates what it takes. It's going to be another long season in Cleveland, but there appears to be a promising future.
ORLANDO: LAST SEASON: 42-40, lost 4-1 in first round to Toronto
COACH: Steve Clifford (second season with Magic; seventh season overall, 238-254).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Evan Fournier (15.1 ppg), G D.J. Augustin (11.7), F Aaron Gordon (16.0), F Jonathan Isaac (9.6), C Nikola Vucevic (20.8).
KEY ADDITIONS: F Al-Farouq Aminu, G Markelle Fultz (acquired in February from Philadelphia but didn't play).
PLAYERS TO WATCH: There isn't a lot of mystery to the Magic entering this season, since they bring back basically the same team and will be adding a former No. 1 overall pick in Fultz who has worked for months to fix his shoulder and shooting issues. Vucevic is coming off a season where he set career-bests in points, rebounds and assists per game. When Gordon scored big, the Magic were really good; they went 16-8 in the 24 games where Gordon reached the 20-point mark. Terrence Ross is basically a sixth starter for Orlando, needing only 26.5 minutes per game to average 15.1 points last season in an instant-offense role coming off the bench.
OUTLOOK: The Magic improved by 17 wins last season and reached the playoffs for the first time since 2012, doing all that without the burden of expectation. They won't have that same luxury this year, not after bringing back virtually every part of a team that didn't just get into the playoffs but did so by going 22-9 down the stretch of the regular season. Getting to the foul line more would be a major help, after the Magic ranked last in free throws made and free throws attempted last season. The biggest challenge for Clifford may be finding ways for his team to replicate the same get-into-the-playoffs hunger it had a year ago.
Beilein makes Cavs coaching debut against Magic

John Beilein and two of his three prized rookies will make their regular-season debuts Wednesday night when the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers tip off the campaign on the road against a 2018-19 playoff club, the Orlando Magic.

The Cavaliers made major changes after tying for the second-worst record in the NBA last season at 19-63. Gone are coach Larry Drew and almost half of his roster, including one key link to the team's four straight trips to the NBA Finals -- J.R. Smith.

The new edition features Beilein, who left a successful Michigan program for his first shot at the NBA, and his high-scoring approach that will be led by Kevin Love, Collin Sexton and rookies Darius Garland, Dylan Windler and Kevin Porter Jr.

Windler, the club's second first-round pick in June, won't suit up for the opener because of a stress reaction in his left tibia. The Cavaliers also likely will be without John Henson (strained groin), a key big man acquired last season from Milwaukee.

Beilein spent much of the NBA offseason trying to convince himself his new job is no different than when he was successful at four different stops along the college trail.

"I will have the same preparation," he promised reporters on the eve of the season. "I'll have the same emotions, the same diligence to try and be the best coach I can be."

While the Cavaliers attempt to speed up offensively in hopes of major improvements, the Magic begin their new year hoping to continue along the slow-and-steady road to a second straight trip to the postseason.

The Magic reached 42 wins last season thanks to a 22-9 finish. Orlando shocked Toronto on the road in Game 1 of the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, before losing the best-of-seven series in five games.

With their top pick -- Chuma Okeke (torn ACL) -- in essence being redshirted this season, the Magic return mostly the same look that last year produced their first winning season since 2011-12.

Playoff-tested forward Al-Farouq Aminu has been imported from Portland to join a returning nucleus that once again features Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon and Terrence Ross.

Second-year coach Steve Clifford has made it no secret: The Magic's offense will revolve around his All-Star center Vucevic.

"His decision-making with passing, he's like a guard," Clifford said during the preseason. "To me, that's why he was an All-Star. He plays in a way to where your team is going to function well when he's out there because he makes the right play and he plays for his teammates."

As opposed to the visitors, the Magic report no injuries as the season begins. Mo Bamba, limited to 47 games last season by a broken leg after having been the No. 6 pick of the 2018 draft, was the biggest question mark that was erased by a healthy preseason.

The clubs met three times last season, with the home team winning each by an average of 15.0 points.
