Top 30 NBA small forwards — 21. Keldon Johnson, Spurs
Keldon Johnson continues to add layers to his game in San Antonio. He improved across the board in his third NBA season, bumping his 3-point percentage up considerably and taking the next step in his defensive evolution. He stepped into a bigger role offensively and saw his efficiency improve across the board. That’s a good sign. He’s a building block for the young Spurs.
Top 30 NBA small forwards — 20. Andrew Wiggins, Warriors
Andrew Wiggins’ defense on Luka Doncic was the storyline of Golden State’s swift conference finals victory. His career trajectory has done a complete 180 since arriving in the Bay — he has improved his shot diet, he’s putting in massive effort on defense, and he’s now a key contributor for a championship contender. Not long ago, Wiggins was the prince of empty calories. Now, he’s a legitimately great role player.
Top 30 NBA small forwards — 19. Joe Harris, Nets
Joe Harris spent the entire year on the sidelines due to injury, but it shouldn’t take long for him to reassert his importance in Brooklyn. One of the best off-movement shooters in the NBA, Harris should have a field day playing off of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Especially with Ben Simmons presumably playing set-up man and Seth Curry keeping the defense occupied on the other wing.
