2018-2019 NBA Preview: Top 100 Players: 100-91

100 Nicolas Batum–Charlotte–SG/SF (-43): Despite having a down year, Batum is still a very versatile player. He can score, rebound, and pass; but he’s not the lock-down he used to be.

99 Dwyane Wade–Miami–SG/PG (-38): It’s not shocking Wade is this low considering he’s entering his 16th and final season. But D-Wade still cracks the top 100. In limited minutes, Wade still can be an explosive scorer. See his Game 2 performance against 76ers in the playoffs this year.

98 Buddy Hield–Sacramento–SG (-14): In what was supposed to be a breakout year, Hield was just ok. He had very good percentages but only played 25 minutes a night and only started 13 games. Hield and Bagley III are the faces of the franchise and hopefully they up to their potential for the Kings’ sake.

Morris Twins
The Morris twins were important role players on their teams last season.

97 Markieff Morris–Washington–PF/SF (-11): Markieff is probably the more talented Morris twin. However, he like the Wizards had a disappointing 2018 season. With Dwight Howard coming in, he’ll play a more important role as a stretch 4.

96 Marcus Morris–Boston–SF/PF (+2): While he struggled in the postseason, the other Morris twin provided a lot of depth for Boston last season. He averaged 19 points a game in the month of March while shooting 49% and 47% from 3. He could be a 6th man candidate this year.

95 Carmelo Anthony–Houston–SF/PF (-55): Like Wade, it shouldn’t be this shocking that Melo has fallen this far. He was a disaster in OKC and now finds himself with the Houston Rockets. I do think he fits better with the Rockets but I also wouldn’t be shocked if it doesn’t work out.

94 Malcolm Brogdon–Milwaukee–SG/PG (+7): With Jabari Parker gone, the former Rookie of the Year Brogdon will be taking on a bigger role for the Bucks. He’s a very good on ball defender and his offense continues to improve.

Malcolm Brogdon was the 2017 Rookie of the Year.

93 Thaddeus Young–Indiana–PF (+1): There’s nothing flashy about Thaddeus Young, but that’s why he’s such an important player to Indiana’s success. He’s a constant pro and you know what you’re going to get out of him every night.

92 JJ Redick–Philadelphia–SG (+9): Redick had a huge impact on the 76ers’ improvement last year. Not only did he provide veteran leadership but his incredible shooting opened the floor for Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid to operate down low.

91 Tim Hardaway Jr.–New York–SF/SG (+10): After signing a massive deal to return to the Knicks, Hardaway Jr. had his best season as a pro. Scoring nearly 18 points a game, he’s starting to show that he can be a consistent scoring threat.
