Notes 
 Smith has a great opportunity as the starting power forward. The ceiling is limited but he should get every chance to hold down the job.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Love looked like his younger self last year as he embraced the bench role. If he can replicate that effort, he's going to be viable.
