NEW YORK: LAST SEASON: 17-65, missed playoffs.
COACH: David Fizdale (second season, fourth NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Dennis Smith Jr. (13.6 ppg), G RJ Barrett (rookie), F Marcus Morris (13.9 ppg), F Julius Randle (21.1 ppg). C Mitchell Robinson (7.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Noah Vonleh, F Mario Hezonja, G Emmanuel Mudiay, C DeAndre Jordan
KEY ADDITIONS: G Barrett, F Randle, F Morris, F Bobby Portis, F Taj Gibson, G Elfrid Payton, G Wayne Ellington, G/F Reggie Bullock. PLAYER TO WATCH: Barrett. The Knicks shared the best odds of getting the No. 1 pick and Zion Williamson after having the worst record in the league. They ended up third and took his Duke teammate and fellow All-American, who tied for the ACC scoring lead, with their highest selection since grabbing Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing first overall in 1985. There aren't a lot of scorers on the roster, so the Knicks will need Barrett to play well quickly.
OUTLOOK: The Knicks couldn't land any of the top talent in free agency after missing the playoffs for a sixth straight year, but believe they signed enough veteran toughness to exceed their relatively low expectations.
SAN ANTONIO: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost 4-3 to Denver in Western Conference first round.
COACH: Gregg Popovich (24th season, 1245-575).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Dejounte Murray (missed last season with knee injury), G Bryn Forbes (11.8 ppg), G DeMar DeRozan (21.2), F LaMarcus Aldridge (21.3), C Jakob Poeltl (5.5).
KEY ADDITIONS: F DeMarre Carroll, F Trey Lyles, G/F Keldon Johnson, F Luka Samanic
PLAYERS TO WATCH: DeRozan spent most of last season processing a trade that unexpectedly sent him to the Spurs and away from the Toronto Raptors, the franchise he pledged his devotion to ' then watched them win a title. Murray's injury also forced DeRozan to become the team's main distributor for the first time in his career. DeRozan set a career high with 6.2 assists per game but also had his second-lowest scoring average in six seasons. Murray is back and spent the offseason sending video of specific plays to show the 30-year-old guard how he could help him score more easily.
OUTLOOK: The Spurs continue to get younger and faster while trying to maintain their veteran presence and corporate knowledge. The latter received a huge boost with the addition of Hall of Famer Tim Duncan as an assistant coach. Duncan's knowledge of the Spurs' system, work ethic and camaraderie should help the team's development as it attempts to an establish an identity separate from but similar to the Big Three era spearheaded by Duncan that led to five NBA championships. Murray's return along with the return of White, expected emergence of Lonnie Walker IV and addition of Carroll should make the Spurs among the best wing defenses in the league.
Spurs set to open vs. new-look Knicks

The San Antonio Spurs and New York Knicks took decidedly different tacks to get to the opening of the 2019-20 NBA season, which begins for both on Wednesday night when the teams square off in San Antonio.

The traditionally non-flashy Spurs mostly stood pat in the player department, and the Knicks, coming off a franchise-worst-tying 17-65 campaign, all but remade their roster.

With a core of center/forward LaMarcus Aldridge, shooting guard DeMar DeRozan and point guard Derrick White, San Antonio went 48-34 last season and pushed the second-seeded Denver Nuggets to seven games before bowing out in the first round of the playoffs.

It was the 22nd consecutive trip to the playoffs for the Spurs, which extended their NBA record.

San Antonio's biggest addition, third-year guard Dejounte Murray, was with the team last year but missed the entire campaign with a knee injury suffered in the preseason. On Monday, the team signed Murray to a contract extension reported to be for four years and $64 million.

The Spurs added forwards Trey Lyles and DeMarre Carroll to bolster the frontcourt and resigned Rudy Gay.

San Antonio can send a variety of lineups to the court depending how it wants to match up with its opponents. The roster is loaded with guards and contains a mix of veterans and youthful players, all fully invested into coach Gregg Popovich's defense-first scheme.

"It feels good going into the season with the depth that we have, the bodies that we have and being dynamic and be able to in any combination that we feel fits," DeRozan said. "Everybody is understanding of their role, their plays, and the type of style that we have to play, and is aware and understands what is asked of them."

Popovich was asked last week if he had seen any improvement in the team's defense since the start of training camp.

"Not yet," he replied in his typical fashion. "We still stink."

Don't expect that situation to continue. New York could face the brunt of the Spurs' continuing steps toward improvement.

The Knicks have fallen short of the postseason for the past six years and haven't played meaningful games after March 1 in five of those. In 2018-19, New York's record was the league's worst.

That dismal performance earned the Knicks the third overall pick in the draft, which turned into former Duke star RJ Barrett, who is just 19 years old. New York also signed free agent Julius Randle, and those two players, along with Dennis Smith Jr., could be difference-makers for the Knicks.

"We're building,'' Randle said. "It's going to take time, but I like where we're going. We just have to have patience. The process is going to take time, but we're going to get there.''

Knicks coach David Fizdale said he has a good mix of talented players.

"I don't have a gauge or number, but I do think this team can be a lot better,'' Fizdale said. "The guys all add a different skill set that we didn't have before. We added more shooting, couple more playmakers, we got some guys that can post. I feel like this team is maybe further ahead than last year's team.''
