24. player. 77. . PF. Los Angeles Clippers. Nicolas Batum

Nic Batum has truly thrived in his post-stardom career (if you’d consider his peak “stardom”). He’s endlessly crafty and clever, but not in the overtly flashy sense. He consistent makes the right read, picking apart defenses with his passing and making the small efforts to win games. He can still get after it defensively, too.

Kyle Anderson. 23. player. 86. . PF. Minnesota Timberwolves

The aptly nicknamed Slo Mo has been quite effective for the Wolves, especially since KAT’s injury deprived them of depth in the frontcourt. A clever passer for his position and a capable multi-position defender, Anderson is the glue holding Minnesota together.

. PF. Charlotte Hornets. P.J. Washington. 22. player. 170

P.J. Washington has stuffed the stat sheet all season for the Hornets, a team who needs every bit of help it can get without Miles Bridges. Washington’s defensive flexibility, burgeoning shot-making, and competitiveness on the glass make him the ideal well-rounded role player to complement LaMelo Ball.
