Last Year: 7.9 ppg, 4.9 rpg

A light bulb went on for Seraphin the moment he found himself backing up Nene instead of JaVale McGee. Nene’s IQ has rubbed off on Seraphin, who has improved every aspect of his game since last season, especially his defense.

Chris Singleton, F

Ht/Wt: 6-9, 228

Last Year: 4.6 ppg, 3.5 rpg

Singleton’s best asset is his ability to play pressure defense and to defend multiple positions. He’ll have a big challenge if injuries make it necessary for him to spend a lot of time at power forward instead of his normal position at small forward. Last year, Singleton often lacked the same aggressiveness on offense as he displayed on defense. He’ll need to step that up.

Jan Vesely, F

Ht/Wt: 7-0, 242

Last Year: 4.7 ppg, 4.4 rpg

Vesely still is making the adjustment to the NBA style of play, has a tendency to get in foul trouble and often lacks confidence in his shot. He needs to become more consistent and more aggressive on both ends of the floor.

John Wall, G

Ht/Wt: 6-4, 207

Last Year: 16.3 ppg, 8.0 apg

Wall will start the season on the bench with a left patella injury but still looks at his third season as make-or-break. By the end of last year, he had learned how to be a coach on the floor and no longer had to look to the bench to call plays. He still needs to improve his shooting percentage and cut down om turnovers.

Martell Webster, G/F
