We've covered how each team in the East and West will finish, as well as which players will take home the Rookie of the Year and MVP awards. Now our panel is projecting which addition will have the biggest impact on his team this season.
We asked the ESPN Forecast team to rank its top three choices for the 2016-17 best newcomer, with a first-place vote receiving five points, a second-place vote receiving three and a third-place vote receiving one. (Here's how ESPN Forecast works.)
To participate in the discussion and perhaps get your opinion published on this page, #ESPNForecast is the Twitter hashtag to use.
