ATLANTA: LAST SEASON: 24-58, missed playoffs.
COACH: Lloyd Pierce (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Trae Young (27.4 ppg, University of Oklahoma), G Kent Bazemore (12.9 ppg), C Alex Len (8.5 ppg, Phoenix), F Taurean Prince (14.1 ppg), F John Collins (10.5 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Dennis Schroder
KEY ADDITIONS: Young, G Kevin Huerter, F Omari Spellman, G Vince Carter
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Young, the fifth overall draft pick, is an exciting point guard who's likely to make a lot of rookie mistakes. Collins is primed to boost his scoring after spending the offseason to improve his jump shot. Prince has emerged as a team leader. Rookies Huerter and Spellman are first-round picks.
OUTLOOK: This season marks the second under general manager Travis Schlenk and the first of a complete rebuild. He and Pierce will take a patient approach with a young team that might struggle to win 20 games. The Hawks hope they drafted a franchise cornerstone in Young, but they aren't pressing him. Young was in high school two years ago and struggled at times in the second half of his only season at Oklahoma. Collins and Prince should be better in their second and third seasons, and Pierce will find opportunities for Huerter and Spellman if they earn the minutes in practice.
NEW YORK: LAST SEASON: 29-53, missed playoffs.
COACH: David Fizdale (first season, third NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Trey Burke (12.8 ppg), G Tim Hardaway Jr. (17.5 ppg), F Kevin Knox (rookie), F Lance Thomas (4.1 ppg) or Kristaps Porzingis (22.7 ppg), C Enes Kanter (14.1 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Michael Beasley, F/C Kyle O'Quinn
KEY ADDITIONS: F Knox, F Mario Hezonja PLAYER TO WATCH: Knox. The No. 9 pick in the draft from Kentucky was one of the best performers in the Summer League, started strong in the preseason and seems to have the skills and confidence to continue to play well once the real games arrive.
OUTLOOK: Porzingis remains out while recovering from a torn ACL and it's unknown when he will return, so the Knicks begin the Fizdale era without their best player. But they are focused on rebuilding patiently and won't worry too much about their record or rushing the All-Star forward back before he is completely ready.
Knicks open Fizdale era at home against Hawks

NEW YORK -- The David Fizdale era kicks off for the New York Knicks on Wednesday night as they open their season with a visit from the Atlanta Hawks at 7:30 p.m. at Madison Square Garden.

Of course, with the Knicks there is always drama, and that is no different as they set to open their season.

First, there was the jettisoning of longtime NBA vet Joakim Noah over the weekend.

Then, on Monday, the team declined to sign star forward Kristaps Porzingis to a rookie extension prior to the deadline. He remains sidelined as he rehabs a torn ACL, leaving his contract negotiations to the summer.

And on Tuesday, even more cacophony, as reporters learned that promising rookie forward Kevin Knox would not be in the starting lineup on Wednesday as projected. The Knicks will instead go with second-year defensive lockdown specialist Frank Ntilikina.

So much for an uneventful start to the season.

Knox, the No. 7 pick in the draft out of Kentucky, had started all five preseason games for New York, but struggled in the final three. He shot just 32 percent during preseason action, but Fizdale insisted as late as Friday that he would be in the starting lineup.

Instead, Trey Burke will start at the point, Ntilikina at the two and Tim Hardaway Jr. at small forward.

"Coach wants me to be more aggressive with that second lineup," Knox said, "and be a leader with that second lineup and go from there. I'm not surprised at all. He wants to switch up lineups, and we have so much talent on this team."

Added Ntilikina: "I'm really, really happy to be a starter, but it's not the end of the day. What we want to be is successful with this team. Coach has that confidence in me and Trey, and we'll do the best we can do in those few minutes and try to be more competitive."

Fizdale did not mince words with reporters on Tuesday, saying that Knox was "playing pretty crappy, so his confidence was already shook up. So sometimes a little tweak, just taking him out of the lineup for a minute might give him a chance to digest it, take a breath."

Atlanta's first-round pick, meanwhile, is having no such early season uncertainty.

Trae Young, the No. 5 pick in the draft out of Oklahoma after a sensational freshman year, is the Hawks' starting point guard and figures to be an integral part of the offense.

"I've always dreamed of playing in Madison Square," Young told the New York Daily News. "I was able to play in the Staples Center when I was in college, but I've never been able to be in Madison Square. I'm looking forward to playing in it. I know it's going to be a crazy environment. They said that sometimes during timeouts there are light shows. They said it's crazy. I'm looking forward to it."

The Hawks also hope to get some added scoring punch from third-year small forward Taurean Prince, the No. 12 pick in the 2016 draft by Utah. Prince averaged 14.1 points per game last year, up from 5.7 as a rookie.

The Knicks' best scorer, Porzingis, is expected to be out until at least December, but he has impressed his new coach with his basketball IQ.

"He's been awesome to have in the gym," Fizdale told reporters Monday. "It's like having another coach. The film sessions, he speaks up as much as any coach on our staff, and what he says is exactly what we need said."
