As the Knicks get ready for home opener against the Celtics, Julius Randle is expecting chaos from fans at MSG.
The Toronto Raptors will begin life without Kyle Lowry on Wednesday night when they open the season against the visiting Washington Wizards. Pascal Siakam, who will be looked upon as the new Raptors' leader, will not play in the opener as he recovers from shoulder surgery and is about two weeks away from a return. After Lowry's departure to the Miami Heat, the Raptors still have a star point guard in Fred VanVleet, also a key player in Toronto's 2019 championship run.
The sign-and-trade between the Bulls and Pelicans is still under investigation.
