NEW ORLEANS: LAST SEASON: 33-49, finished tied for 12th in Western Conference.
COACH: Alvin Gentry (fifth season with Pelicans, 145-183; 17th season overall, 480-553).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Lonzo Ball (9.9 ppg), G Jrue Holiday (21.2), F Brandon Ingram (18.3), F Zion Williamson (rookie), C Derrick Favors (11.8).
KEY LOSSES: F Anthony Davis, F Julius Randle, G Elfrid Payton.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Williamson, F Ingram, G Ball, C Favors, G J.J. Redick, G Nickeil Alexander-Walker, C Jaxson Hayes.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Williamson was the No. 1 overall pick in last summer's NBA draft, was a highlight machine at Duke and has looked fearless in his first NBA preseason ' taking the ball to the hoop against the best interior defenders in the league and scoring more than 20 points in multiple games. The 6-foot-6, 285-pound rookie is a social media phenomenon and filling arenas everywhere he goes. But the additions of Ball and Redick will be important to New Orleans as well.
OUTLOOK: Of the Pelicans' four new starters brought in by Griffin, one was picked No. 1 overall this summer and two Ingram and Ball were picked second overall within the previous three years by the Lakers before being packaged with Josh Hart and draft picks in a trade sending Davis to Los Angeles. Combined with savvy veterans like Holiday and Favors, not to mention Redick off the bench, there are high hopes in New Orleans that the Pelicans are trending upward and might even contend for a playoff spot this season. The Pelicans also expect 2019 first-round picks Alexander-Walker and Hayes to contribute this season.
TORONTO: LAST SEASON: 58-24, won NBA Finals.
COACH: Nick Nurse (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kyle Lowry (14.2 ppg, 8.7 apg), G Norman Powell (8.6 ppg), F OG Anunoby (7.0 ppg), F Pascal Siakam (16.9 ppg), C Marc Gasol (15.7 ppg, 8.6 rpg).
KEY LOSSES: F Kawhi Leonard, G Danny Green
KEY ADDITIONS: F Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, F Stanley Johnson, G Matt Thomas
PLAYERS TO WATCH: A runaway winner of the NBA's Most Improved Player Award last season, Siakam doesn't look likely to rest on his laurels. Nurse said he's seen more maturity and calmness in Siakam this fall, something new for a player whose game was previously all about speed and energy. Thomas has never played in the NBA, but the former Iowa State star shot 48.1% (116 for 241) from 3-point range in helping Spain's Valencia Basket capture the 2019 EuroCup title.
OUTLOOK: The defending champions lost their best player when Leonard left for the Clippers, and took another hit when Green signed with the Lakers. While those departures may have dimmed Toronto's hopes of repeating, the Raptors aren't lottery-bound either. Lowry has made five straight All-Star teams, Gasol is a defensive force in the paint, and there's talent on the bench in guard Fred VanVleet and big man Serge Ibaka. Expect the Raptors to earn a top-four seed in a balanced Eastern Conference.

Raptors begin title defense against Zion-less Pelicans

The defending NBA champion Toronto Raptors will begin life without Kawhi Leonard on Tuesday night when they host the New Orleans Pelicans, who no longer have Anthony Davis and will be missing injured future star Zion Williamson.

Leonard, so dominant in the championship run, left as a free agent to join the Los Angeles Clippers. The focal point of the Raptors will become Pascal Siakam, who signed a four-year, $130-million max contract extension Monday.

"I think people are done overlooking him," Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. "Those days are done. Rightly so, he'll be a focal point for teams to scheme against. ... He's been blessed with an incredible motor. He's got a motor not only to play in games with tremendous energy but to do his day-long work with conviction and pace."

The Pelicans traded Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks. Jrue Holiday figures to be the only returning player in the starting lineup Tuesday that is expected to include Ball, JJ Redick, Ingram and Derrick Favors.

The NBA debut of Williamson won't come for another 6-to-8 weeks after the No. 1 overall draft pick from Duke underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Monday.

The Pelicans said Williamson went under the knife due to a torn lateral meniscus.

Williams starred at forward in the preseason as he shot 71.4 percent while averaging 23.3 points and 6.5 rebounds.

"He's a smart enough player that whenever he comes back he will be fine," Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said prior to the surgery. "I don't see him falling behind in a situation, where all of a sudden he's got all of this makeup work to do. ... It's a pretty simple system anyway. He's a solid, solid guy and very mature for a 19-year-old."

Without Williamson, the Pelicans will rely on Holiday, Ingram and Ball for scoring with starting center Favors and reserve forward Kenrich Williams helping with rebounding.

"We will move some guys around," Gentry said. "That's one of the things about having depth and players who play different positions. We can move guys around and put ourselves in a position where, from a rotation standpoint, we are still pretty solid."

The Raptors are expected to have a starting lineup of Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby, Siakam and Marc Gasol in most games. Serge Ibaka and Norman Powell also should get some starting assignments.

"Playing with Kawhi was an extreme luxury but it was very challenging," VanVleet said. "I've never played with a guy like that before who was just so good and just so dominant that you just have to get out of the way sometimes.

"When he didn't play last year we had a lot of fun, I'll say that. The ball moves, and obviously you want a guy like that when you're trying to win a championship but ... I think the ball moving, everybody sharing it, playing faster, it can be a little fun for sure."

The Raptors are also without another key player from their championship team in Danny Green, who departed as a free agent for the Lakers.

"He's very vocal. Very positive. He doesn't take things personal," Gasol said of Green. "He's a veteran guy who has been around but has come up also through hard times and has been coached hard in his previous years (by Gregg Popovich with the San Antonio Spurs) and knows what it takes to play at the highest level. And he was very good for us."
