Top 10 Projected Teams In The East
There is no denying that the Eastern Conference got more competitive this offseason. From Monta Ellis going to Indiana, Greg Monroe transferring to Milwaukee, the Heat coming back healthy, to stars like Carmelo Anthony and Paul George returning to full health. The East will be much more exciting to watch this year which bodes well for the NBA. Some of the teams that we usually see in the playoff picture may fall out while other up and coming teams take the next step. For an early fearless forecast, here are the top 10 Eastern Conference teams for next season.
10. Orlando Magic

Expect the Magic to hover around 38 wins.
