The Washington Wizards finished last season with a 46-36 record, making their second consecutive appearance in the Eastern Conference semifinals. This is a team that continues to improve year after year and there are, once again, high expectations as we head into the 2015-16 NBA season.

For the most part, head coach Randy Wittman retains his core from last season, with the exception of Paul Pierce, who joined the Los Angeles Clippers. They’ll also be without Kevin Seraphin and Rasual Butler, but both of those players can be easily replaced.

Overall, the Wizards have a solid roster coming into the season. They have a good combination of veterans and young players.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have a stranglehold on the Eastern Conference, but Washington is hoping that the moves they made this offseason can put them in good position to give the Cavaliers a run for their money. There is some uncertainty about that, but only time will tell.

Here’s how the rotation will shake out for the Wizards this season.
