25.) Rodney Hood – Utah Jazz

Hood should benefit greatly by the departure of Gordon Hayward but he still has a way in improving his game. He is another young candidate that could rise up this list if he becomes a main scoring option in Utah.

24.) Tim Hardaway Jr.- New York Knicks

Finding his way back to New York, Hardaway Jr. has a new shiny contract for being an above average offensive player. If Anthony is moved, he could see an increase in statistics across the board.

23.) Andre Roberson – Oklahoma City Thunder

Roberson is one of the best wing defenders in the game, but his lack of offensive game drops him on this list to 23.

22.) Danny Green – San Antonio Spurs

Green is your example of a 3-and-D perimeter guy and that is basically it. Solid role player, but simply drops below some other guys with higher potential and better specific abilities.

21.) Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – Los Angeles Lakers

KCP goes to the Lakers this season to run the backcourt with Lonzo Ball. He should have a solid season in LA, but needs to take the next step in his career.
