What to expect from the teams ahead of the new season?
Bucks will be looking to repeat the last season's performance of the regular season where they were the only side to end up with 60 wins.
But the Bucks will sure be looking to get into the NBA finals this time around after failing to do so against Toronto Raptors last season.
That said, Boston Celtic have once again entered the transition period, while Kawhi Leonard has left for Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference, so Bucks will fancy their chances this season, with the only sustained challenge expected to come from Joel Embiid's Philadelphia 76ers.
Chicago Bulls head coach Jim Boylen has already indicated what he may do with his squad in the pre-season. We expect rotation from Bulls as he said, “We're going to tape (ankles) and practice. Nobody's going to be extended on Monday night.”
CHI vs MIL Dream11 Team News:
Chicago Bulls added Perrion Callandret, Milton Doyle and Justin Simon in free agency, and the trio will be looking to get some minutes in this game.
Doyle, in particular, comes to the team with great expectations on his shoulder after a good season with UCAM Muria in Liga ACB (Spain).
Bulls' season will depend on how much Zach LaVine is supported by his teammate this season, something which Bulls failed to do so last season.
LaVine had a usage rate only behind the likes of Kevin Durant, Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetkounmpo last season. Not a bad company at all.
Robin Lopez left Bulls in free agency this summer, which makes a solid case for Wendell Carter to be the main Center for the team this season.
First draft pick Coby White is certainly the point guard for the future but for this season, Tomas Staoransky is the obvious choice.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is fit and healthy and ready to take on the world this season. The Greek-Freak led the Bucks to a season-best 60-22 record and was deservedly crowned the MVP last season.
Wesley Matthews is being seen as a replacement for Malcolm Brogdon, while Kyle Korver, Dragan Bender and Robin Lopez will all be looking to make the impact in the pre-season.
