BROOKLYN: LAST SEASON: 28-54, missed playoffs.
COACH: Kenny Atkinson (third season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G D'Angelo Russell (15.5 ppg), G Allen Crabbe (13.2 ppg), F DeMarre Carroll (13.5 ppg), F Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, (13.9 ppg), C Jarrett Allen (8.2 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Jeremy Lin
KEY ADDITIONS: F Ed Davis, G Shabazz Napier, F Jared Dudley, F Kenneth Faried PLAYER TO WATCH: Russell was averaging 20.9 points through 12 games before hurting his knee last season and couldn't get back to that level once he returned. Nets need the No. 2 pick in the 2015 draft to have more than just a good short stretch and become a consistent point guard across an entire season
OUTLOOK: The Nets made an eight-win improvement last season that was bettered only by Philadelphia among Eastern Conference teams. They believe the players they acquired in free agency will improve their weaknesses in defense and rebounding and help them make even more strides in 2018-19.
DETROIT: LAST SEASON: 39-43, missed playoffs.
COACH: Dwane Casey (first season, 10th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Reggie Jackson (14.6 ppg), G Reggie Bullock (11.3 ppg), F Stanley Johnson (8.7 ppg), F Blake Griffin (21.4 ppg), C Andre Drummond (15.0 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Anthony Tolliver, F James Ennis III
KEY ADDITIONS: G-F Glenn Robinson III, C Zaza Pachulia PLAYER TO WATCH: Jackson. The Pistons were off to a nice start last season before their point guard went down with an ankle injury in late December. He ended up playing only 45 games.
OUTLOOK: It was an offseason of upheaval for the Pistons, with Casey replacing Stan Van Gundy as
COACH, but Detroit isn't exactly starting over. The roster is pretty much the same, and now Griffin has a little more time to mesh with the Pistons after coming over in a midseason trade. At full strength, Detroit could be a team to watch in the Eastern Conference, but good health isn't exactly a given with Jackson and Griffin.
Pistons look to get season off to good start against Nets

Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin are learning how to stay out of each gway.

The better they get at that, the more dangerous the Detroit Pistons will become this season.

Detroit opens at home against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday with high hopes of making the playoffs. The Pistons possess two of the top big men in the Eastern Conference and they're continuing to build chemistry.

Griffin was acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers in a blockbuster trade in late January but now that duo has enjoyed the benefit of a full training camp together.

In the team's final preseason game against Cleveland, Griffin exploded for 29 points along with three rebounds and five assists, while Drummond bulled his way to 21 points and 15 rebounds.

"It's like having two pit bulls in one house," Drummond said. "You've got to figure each other out. Last game showed how deadly we could be together when we figure things out. It's only going to get better from here."

If Griffin and point guard Reggie Jackson can stay reasonably healthy, the Pistons should be one of the top eight teams in the Eastern Conference and reach the postseason. Griffin hasn't played in more than 67 regular-season games over the past four seasons. Jackson has missed big chunks of time the past two seasons due to knee and ankle ailments.

Dwane Casey will be making his regular-season coaching debut with the Pistons. He was hired by Pistons owner Tom Gores after previous head coach Stan Van Gundy was fired after a four-season run. Casey was named Coach of the Year with Toronto last season but lost his job after a playoff flop against Cleveland.

"The time is now," Drummond said. "We have everything we need to be great. There's no reason why we can't be a top team in the East or a top team in the NBA."

Brooklyn remains in a rebuilding mode but expects to be more competitive after going 28-54 last season.

"I don't see any reason why we can't make a push for the playoffs," GM Sean Marks said this offseason. "Isn't that the objective here? We're not sitting here trying to win 20 games, so let's put our best foot forward and push each other and see where it goes."

The Nets used free agency to fortify their bench. They added prolific rebounder Ed Davis and Shabazz Napier, both of whom played for Portland last season.

Brooklyn will rely on its backcourt to provide a majority of its scoring. D'Angelo Russell, Allen Crabbe, Caris LeVert and Spencer Dinwiddie each averaged at least 12 points per game last season.

The Nets will start the season without small forward DeMarre Carroll, who underwent ankle surgery on Tuesday.

"I don't think it's a huge thing," coach Kenny Atkinson told the New York Post. "It was something where we could go back and forth or get this thing cleaned up and get him feeling 100 percent. So it is what it is. I think we have a deeper roster this year. I think we can cover during his absence. Not great news for DeMarre or us, but we've got to push forward."

Crabbe (ankle) is also expected to miss the game and forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (adductor) is questionable.
