CLEVELAND: GUARDS: There are some durability concerns, but KYRIE IRVING is on the verge of stardom. He should benefit from the arrival of Anthony Bennett, the kind of pick-and-roll weapon Cleveland has lacked . . . DION WAITERS is still a work-in-progress defensively, and this will likely be another developmental year. He might end up settling in as the leader of the second unit . . . JARRETT JACK seems likely to close out games, even if he doesn't technically start. He's a creative shot-maker who will play close to starter's minutes . . . C.J. MILES is more of a situational three-point threat. SERGEY KARASEV, a polished Euro import, could push him for that role . . . CARRICK FELIX doesn't figure to crack this rotation. FORWARDS: No. 1 overall pick ANTHONY BENNETT will see time at both forward spots, and he'll be a pick-and-pop weapon no matter where he's playing. The question is whether he'll defend well enough to stay on the court for 30 minutes . . . There should also be enough minutes for TRISTAN THOMPSON, who hasn't quite put it together. The 22-year-old has upside though, and is a bigger part of Cleveland's future than Anderson Varejao . . . EARL CLARK gives the Cavs a quality second unit player who can play extended minutes if Bennett is overmatched defensively . . . A starter last year, ALONZO GEE figures to be a second-unit glue guy, but might be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO is once again healthy and once again trade bait. No matter what the starting lineup looks like, he'll play major minutes at the four and five . . . The Cavs are taking a flier on ANDREW BYNUM. With his knee problems, it'd be surprising if he could give them 20-plus good minutes per night . . . TYLER ZELLER is likely the odd man out until Varejao is dealt or Bynum gets injured.
BROOKLYN: GUARDS: DERON WILLIAMS will surely take on more of a distributor role this year, but he's still this team's best option from three-point range, as well . . . JOE JOHNSON started to break down last season, so along with fewer shots (with the upgrade to the rest of the roster), he figures to play fewer regular-season minutes as well . . . JASON TERRY is clearly in the decline phase of his career, but is still the top scoring option among Brooklyn's second unit . . . ALAN ANDERSON gives them another shooter off the bench . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON steps into the back-up point guard spot vacated by C.J. Watson. The injury-prone vet will be one of the more rarely used back-up PGs . . . TYSHAWN TAYLOR will be a non-factor. FORWARDS: PAUL PIERCE still has something left in the tank. While his athleticism is fading, he's still a cagey scorer who can also play some point forward to set up Williams . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO will be a Swiss army knife sixth man and should see plenty of starts as new head coach Jason Kidd rotates which veterans rest . . . REGGIE EVANS was retained for his rebounding ability and willingness to look ridiculous while flopping . . . ANDRAY BLATCHE will continue to settle in as a second-unit big. He's a name to remember for the future, as Kevin Garnett doesn't have much left in the tank . . . MIRZA TELETOVIC will be a seldom-used option as a stretch four . . . TORNIKE SHENGELIA is still years away from contributing, and the influx of veterans will further delay his development. CENTERS: Last year did a lot to assuage durability concerns for BROOK LOPEZ. He's highly skilled, and he may be forced to grab more rebounds now that Reggie Evans is on the second unit . . . KEVIN GARNETT will start at power forward. He's still an effective pick-and-pop shooter and pick-and-roll defender, but he'll have to rest often during the regular season . . . MASON PLUMLEE is in no position to help this season.

*Cavaliers-Nets Preview* ========================


Cleveland (11-21) at Brooklyn (11-21), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Joe Johnson hasn't been playing well of late, but he picked the right time to find his shot in the Brooklyn Nets' latest game.

Johnson will try to build on his late-game heroics Saturday night when the Nets host the Cleveland Cavaliers, who will once again be without star Kyrie Irving.

A six-time All-Star, Johnson has seen his shooting touch go missing in the past few weeks. Since Dec. 27, Johnson has gone 14 of 43 (32.6 percent) from the field, including 4 of 18 from 3-point range, scoring only 8.3 points per game.

The slump marks the first time Johnson has gone four consecutive games without reaching double figures since Jan. 8-15, 2003, his second professional season.

The stretch of poor play hasn't hurt Johnson's confidence, however, as he asked coach Jason Kidd to give him the ball for the final play Thursday in Oklahoma City. Johnson came through, sinking a 19-foot jumper as time expired to give the Nets a 95-93 win in a game they trailed by 16 points in the second half.

"I thought we as a team did a great job in keeping the game close and coming up with the big plays, especially in the fourth quarter and down the stretch," Johnson said. "Coach drew the play up in the huddle, and the rest is history."

The Nets (11-21) hope the win against the Thunder will not only help Johnson's confidence but also serve as a starting point to turn around their season.

Prior to the game in Oklahoma City, Brooklyn had a minus-8.5 rebounding differential while losing six of its previous seven. The Nets had a 34-33 edge on the glass against the Thunder and Deron Williams - averaging 11.8 points over his past five games - scored a season-high 29.

"Hopefully we can build on it," forward Paul Pierce said.

Williams and the Nets might have a good chance to do so considering Irving will be sidelined again. Cleveland's All-Star point guard will miss his second straight game with a left knee bruise suffered Tuesday at Indiana.

Jarrett Jack started in Irving's place on Thursday, finishing with 14 points, seven assists and seven rebounds, but it was Anderson Varejao who may have made the difference. Varejao had 18 points and a franchise record-tying 25 rebounds as the Cavaliers (11-21) rallied from 10 down in the final 90 seconds to beat Orlando 87-81 in overtime.

"It's hard to explain his importance because he does a lot of little things," coach Mike Brown said. "He does a lot of little things that don't show up in the stat sheet."

Varejao had 11 points and eight boards in Cleveland's 98-84 win over the Nets on Oct. 30 as his team held a plus-11 edge on the boards, but his only game in Brooklyn was perhaps his best as a pro. He had a career-high 35 points and 18 rebounds in the Cavaliers' 114-101 loss at the Barclays Center on Nov. 13, 2012.

Williams had seven points, nine assists and four turnovers in the loss at Cleveland in October.

The Nets have won three straight home games against the Cavaliers.
