Has Nikola Vučević somehow become underrated? With all the recent talk of what he doesn’t do, some seem to have forgotten his wide-ranging 19.8 points, 11.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.9 blocks in 33.4 minutes over the last three seasons.
14. Austin Reaves (Unrestricted)
Few players changed their longterm fortunes as much as Austin Reaves over the last few months. From March 1 through the end of the Lakers’ playoff run, Reaves averaged 17.5 points, 5.1 assists and 4.6 free throws, while shooting 51.4 percent from the field and 43.6 percent from deep.
13. Harrison Barnes (Unrestricted)
He doesn’t provide much in the way of rebounding, assists or the counting stats that come with defense, but Harrison Barnes’ size (6’8″), experience and three-point shooting (38.7 percent over the last five seasons) would make him a viable plug-and-play option for most teams.
12. Jerami Grant (Unrestricted)
Jerami Grant bet on himself and proved a lot about his scoring ability over the last three seasons. After spending the first six years of his career as a defensive specialist bordering on a three-and-D forward, he’s averaged 20.7 points and 2.1 threes, while shooting 37.2 percent from deep since the start of 2020-21.
11. Cameron Johnson (Restricted)
In his first season as a full-time starter, Cameron Johnson averaged 15.5 points and 2.5 threes, while shooting 40.4 percent from deep. His high-end floor spacing in combination with multipositional defense should make him one of this summer’s most coveted restricted free agents.
