PF. Detroit Pistons. Bojan Bogdanovic. 12. player. 64.

Bojan Bogdanovic has been putting up impressive numbers for the basement-dwelling Pistons. He’s not really a No. 1 option in most settings, but Bogdanovic’s efficient volume shooting and unshakable confidence can absolutely fill that void for a team like Detroit. He’s equally competitive on defense, even if the results vary more on that end.

PF. Orlando Magic. Paolo Banchero. 11. player. 38.

The obvious Rookie of the Year, Paolo Banchero is already on the edge of stardom. The Magic, coincidentally, are on the verge of contention. Banchero is 6-foot-10 with the ability to act as lead ball-handler, spray jumpers from all over the court, and bully mismatches in the paint. He’s a special offensive engine in the making.

Aaron Gordon. 10. player. 73. . PF. Denver Nuggets

Aaron Gordon has been the second-best player on the best team in the West. Now situated in a more comfortable offensive role than last season, Gordon is thriving as a spot-up shooter, explosive cutter, and occasional free-style scorer. On defense, he’s one of the best wing stoppers in the game.
