The competition in the Atlantic Division could be the most intriguing in the Eastern Conference, as there are four teams in the running for the title.
The Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets were two of the most active teams in the offseason and should be improved. Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics added depth, while the New York Knicks boosted their roster too.

Play time is over. The regular season is just a week away.
The Magic have plenty to work on before...
