8. Nikola Vucevic, Orlando Magic
Under new head coach Frank Vogel, the Orlando Magic will set out to try and change the identity of a franchise that has struggled for the most part since Dwight Howard departed.
Nikola Vucevic is a big part of what the Magic do, as he has proven to be a crafty offensive weapon. Vucevic will play the 2016-17 season at 26 years-old, and should just be entering his prime.
Vucevic averaged over 18 points and nearly 9 rebounds per game last season. Vucevic has come close to NBA All-Star status in the past, and he should only get better going forward. Last season, Vucevic shot 51 percent from the field and 75 percent from the free throw line, nearly tying career-highs in both categories.
Vucevic has never been the best defender, but he should be aided by the presence of newly-acquired Serge Ibaka this season.
