The Knicks had a big offseason, signing Jalen Brunson and extending RJ Barrett. They didn’t land Donovan Mitchell in a trade but this team does believe in the current young core. Brunson coming in should help them offensively. Tom Thibodeau likely needs to take this group back to the playoffs if he wants to maintain this job.
The Grizzlies enter this season with a bit of a bitter taste in their mouth after the way last year ended. Memphis saw star Ja Morant get hurt against the Warriors in the playoffs, and many believe that injury swung the series. Morant is back healthy, but will have to navigate the early part of the season without running mate Jaren Jackson Jr.
