I'm thinking high 10s or low 20s.

22

But, we should first see what will be done or not done in Free agency. I hope Kleiza is 100%. Him and Ninja at the 3 could be fun to watch.

We should revisit this question in two weeks.

Scoring won't be an issue. Can we sign a real Center and can Casey get this team working hard in their own end.

Not too much centers in the market though.

Biggest name is Tyson Chandler. We can have a go at him, but I doubt Dallas will let that happen. I think the next best name is Sam Dalembert. He's the kind of defensive center that we need on this team.

With a shortened season, I think that you'll have to lose a lot more than 44 games to be 3rd last.... I think you'll see a couple of teams around that 12-15 win mark by season's end... and unless Casey wins COTY or we make a big move I could see us being one of those teams.

I don't disagree with you, but I think there's going to be a lot of teams in the 23-29 win zone.
I doubt there will be more then 1 team sub 20 wins as well.

I could see 10 to be honest. We're working with a shortened training camp, meaning less time for Casey to really implement any type of real system. Factor in we still have some defensive question marks and offensive question marks and the fact that the season is now compressed (factor in fatigue) and I could see us struggling right now.
