2019-2020 Top 100 NBA Players: 100-91

New Addition

(Last Year’s Rating Difference)

100. Ja Morant (Memphis) PG: The 2nd overall pick in the draft, Morant will be getting plenty of playing time for the rebuilding Grizzlies. Along with Jaren Jackson Jr. and Jonas Valanciunas, Morant is in a great spot to grow and develop into the new face of the franchise. (N/A)

99. Derrick Favors (New Orleans) C/PF: After spending 9 years with the Jazz, Favors (who’s only 28) will now serve as another veteran leader for the rebuilding Pelicans. Favors will primarily play more center for New Orleans, which should give him more room to operate down low. (-30)

98. Joe Ingles (Utah) SF/PF: Joe Ingles has quietly become a very good two way player for the Jazz over the past few years. Not only is he a good defender, but he’s become a legit 40% 3 point shooter as well. (+13)

97. Jabari Parker (Atlanta) PF/SF: The former 2nd overall pick in the draft, Parker has fallen on hard times. But considering he’s still just 24 years old, he still has a decent ceiling. He’s expected to play more at the 4 and should really thrive as the Hawks 6th man. But he needs to come with the right attitude and prove he can stay healthy. (-40)

96. Dejounte Murray (San Antonio) PG/SG: After missing the entire 2019 season, Murray will take over as starting point guard for the Spurs. Murray is a freak athlete that should thrive in extended minutes with Coach Popovich. (+15)

95. Caris LeVert (Brooklyn) SG/SF: Before suffering that gruesome leg injury, Caris LeVert was looking like an All-Star. He struggled once he returned but bounced back during the playoffs. There’s no doubt that LeVert can score, but he needs to fill out the rest of his game to become a star. (+16)

94. Evan Fournier (Orlando) SG/SF: Evan Fournier has been a solid consistent player for the Magic over the past few years. While he’s averaged around 16 points a game over the past few years, his percentages haven’t been the best. If the shots aren’t falling, he becomes one dimensional. (-16)

93. Marcus Morris (New York) SF/PF: Marcus Morris was one of the few bright spots for the Celtics last year. Now with the Knicks, he’ll be able to get more minutes on a consistent basis. But Morris needs to have better shot selection if he really wants to get paid. (+3)

92. Collin Sexton (Cleveland) PG/SG: The only major piece left from the Kyrie Irving trade, Sexton had an impressive rookie season. While Sexton isn’t a good shooter, he showed he can get to the bucket at will. Considering he’s just 20 years old, he’ll grow into those deficiencies. (+19)

91. Paul Millsap (Denver) PF: While Paul Millsap is extremely overpaid ($28 Million), he is very important to Denver’s success. He’s the only real veteran with playoff experience and is remains the perfect glue guy for a team on the rise. (-41)
