1. James Harden: The No. 3 overall pick is an adept passer as well as scorer. How many assists and rebounds he averages could be as revealing as how many points he scores.

→2. Russell Westbrook: A first-team All-Rookie selection last season, Westbrook will play in Orlando. How much improvement has the athletic point guard made the past three months in LA?

→3. D.J. White: Limited to a handful of games his rookie season, the former Big Ten Player of the Year is anxious to play a full season. Having added some muscle, White is projected to be part of the Thunder’s rotation.

→4. Shaun Livingston: The former lottery pick showed signs of overcoming a devastating knee injury that derailed his career. How much mobility has Livingston regained the past three months?

→5. B.J. Mullens: The 7-foot center didn’t start for Ohio State. He’s extremely athletic but is a project. How he fares in summer league and training camp in October could determine whether he starts in the D-League.

→6. Kyle Weaver: After contributing solid minutes as a rookie, starting 19 games, Weaver must continue to show improvement to remain in the rotation on a roster that’s still in flux.
