3) Jimmy Butler (Minnesota Timberwolves)

Has always been a top defender, now his offense has caught up.

 

 

4) Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards)

Deadly shooter with range who is also a solid defender.

 

 

5) DeMar DeRozen (Toronto Raptors)

Has become a very reliable player on both ends. Helps to be super athletic.

 

 

6) Avery Bradley (Detroit Pistons)

Has quietly became a very effective two way player. Defense has been his calling card.

 

 

 

7) C. J. McCollum (Portland Trailblazers)

Fourth year player has become a problem on offense. He will only get better.

 

 

8) Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns)

A second year player who found his offense and is just scratching the surface of his potential.

 

 

 

9) Khris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks)

An injury slowed his progression. Not a name most are familiar with,  but we will be soon.

10) Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Los Angeles Lakers) – There is a theme here with fourth year players. He was known for his offense, but surprised many with his defense.
