I don't think the East is THAT much better

Their roster was impressive enough to go 42-22 and be top 10 in point differential, and I don't think we have any reason to think they're gonna regress that much

I think its reasonable to assume that playing in a MIke Brown offense had something to do with Deng falling off

"sneaking up on teams" is not really a fair thing to conjecture, you could have said that about the Wizards last year

Eh, I think the East is pretty up in the air, and a lot of US have the Wizards as a 2 or 3 seed

If your defense has to suffer a little in order for you to not be the worst non-Philly offense in the NBA, I think you take that risk.

I'd hope he'd play more games, and I know its risky to rely on that

I just think they want to incorporate Porter and GRJR into the rotation.

Only way I see him playing is if Gortat gets hurt, then you lose your best rim protector and Kev has shown potential in that aspect in the past

Think Humphries will be the primary backup, and Witt should choose between Pierce, Gooden and Blair depending on matchups

Honestly if we need to stretch the floor in certain matchups, play Pierce at PF

You're taking a huge leap of faith thinking that anecdotal accounts of when they didn't have good chemistry are going lead to Ariza not wanting to play with Gortat.
