ATLANTA: LAST SEASON: 29-53, missed playoffs.
COACH: Lloyd Pierce (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Trae Young (19.1 ppg, 8.1 apg), G Kevin Huerter (9.7 ppg), F De'Andre Hunter (No. 5 overall pick), F John Collins (19.5 ppg, 9.8 rpg), C Damian Jones (5.4 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: C Dewayne Dedmon, G Kent Bazemore, F Omari Spellman
KEY ADDITIONS: Hunter, Jones, F Cam Reddish, F Jabari Parker, G Evan Turner, G Allen Crabbe, F Chandler Parsons, C Bruno Fernando.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Young and Collins are two of the NBA's top young players, while Huerter shows plenty of promise, so the key to this season will be how well they mesh with two more first-round picks, Hunter and No. 10 choice Reddish. Hunter figures to start right away, while Reddish will get plenty of playing time off the bench. Also keep an eye on Parker, the No. 2 overall pick in 2014 by the Milwaukee Bucks. While he has yet to develop into the star everyone expected, Parker is still just 24 years old and has averaged 15.1 points per game over his five-year career. The Hawks, who are focused on player development, hope they can flush out Parker's game. Finally, the Hawks will send out 42-year-old Vince Carter for his record 22nd ' and final ' season in the NBA. Carter showed last season he's still got game, but he won't get as many minutes in his last hurrah as he serves more of a coach-mentor role to all the young players.
OUTLOOK: The Hawks showed promise in Pierce's first season but this franchise is still in the midst of a major rebuilding job. Atlanta might have an outside shot at slipping into the playoffs, but would probably be better off getting another crack at the draft lottery. General manager Travis Schlenk has been acquiring over-priced players that other teams wanted to get off the books. Parsons ($25.1 million), Turner ($18.6 million) and Crabbe ($18.5 million) are in the final year of their contracts, which means 2020 is the year to really start paying attention to the Hawks.
CHARLOTTE: LAST SEASON: 39-43, missed playoffs.
COACH: James Borrego (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Terry Rozier (9.0 ppg), G Dwyane Bacon (7.3 ppg), F PJ Washington (rookie), F Miles Bridges (7.5 ppg), C Cody Zeller (10.1 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: PG Kemba Walker, SG Jeremy Lamb.
KEY ADDITIONS: Rozier, Washington.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: All eyes will be on Rozier. He replaces Walker, a three-time All-Star and the franchise's career scoring leader. Walker averaged 25.6 points last season, so the Hornets will need to find production from players like Bridges and Bacon. Rozier is expected to put up better assist numbers than Walker but doesn't figure to come close to matching his scoring output. One big question for the Hornets will be who they turn to in late-game situations to make big shots. Walker and Lamb have handled that role in recent years, but both are gone. Borrego says it will be something the team must figure out moving forward.
OUTLOOK: Make no doubt about it, the Hornets are in complete rebuilding mode and most view them as a sure lottery team next season. This season isn't about wins and losses, but rather getting young players as many quality minutes as possible. That means Bridges, Bacon, Washington and Malik Monk will see plenty of playing time while aging veterans Nic Batum and Marvin Williams are likely relegated to reserve roles. Charlotte lacks NBA experience, but its youthful roster will provide plenty of energy and enthusiasm and could give some opponents problems. This team may not be very talented, but it will compete.
Hornets aim to put together complete game vs. Hawks

It seems as if the problem areas just tend to be shifting on the Charlotte Hornets.

One game it's something like a slow start, and another it's a rough finish. Or maybe it's shoddy defense in one game and turnovers in the next one.

The Hornets will try to find the solutions Sunday against the visiting Atlanta Hawks, who have a long list of things to address as well.

The game at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C., will give the teams a chance to lock up in a matchup that involves clubs in desperate need of some sustained positive results.

"We have to play a full 48-minute game," Hornets coach James Borrego said.

That concept went sour Friday night in a 111-104 loss to the Brooklyn Nets because, after some good stretches, the Hornets faltered down the stretch.

"The fourth quarter we went dry," Borrego said about the Hornets' 20-point period.

The Hornets have lost twice in the past three home games. Atlanta will be the fourth opponent in Charlotte's five-game homestand.

The Hawks have won only once in their past 12 games. Only four of those 11 setbacks have been decided by single-digit margins.

"It's whoever is on the court has to do a little bit better with regards to their responsibility," Atlanta coach Lloyd Pierce said.

Atlanta's most-recent game also came against Brooklyn, losing 130-118 on Wednesday night at home.

In that game, Hawks rookie guard Cam Reddish registered a season-high 25 points.

"I think that helps with any player to see the ball go in the basket, to feel good about it," Pierce said of Reddish's recent production.

Reddish, who averages 8.1 points per game, will be back in the same arena where last March he helped Duke to the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament title.

The Hornets have received meaningful contributions from a rookie as well. Forward P.J. Washington has provided encouraging moments, often because of what Borrego likes to see with his "ability to roll to the rim."

Borrego said he would like to get more chances for the team's post players, particularly as they've become more comfortable. Washington, averaging 10.8 points, has earned that.

"He has become more versatile," Borrego said. "I have to do a better job of getting him more touches."

The Hornets had a sigh of relief when guard Devonte Graham returned after leaving in the first half Friday night with a shoulder injury.

"It's nothing serious, hopefully," Borrego said.

But Graham's absence, even though he hasn't been in the starting lineup all season, proved to be troublesome for the Hornets.

"It kind of threw off our rhythm," Borrego said, perhaps emphasizing the increasing importance that Graham has developed on the team.

How much Graham's down time impacted the flow of the offense can be debated, but by game's end, the Hornets were troubled because of malfunctions that were too much to overcome.

"The biggest thing is 19 turnovers for 32 points," Borrego said.

Turnovers have been a problem for the Hawks as well. They've averaged 18.4 turnovers per road game. Those have diminished some of the impact of guard Trae Young's 28.7 points per game.
