12. Jayson Tatum
A year ago, Jayson Tatum might have ranked another five spots up this list after an outstanding rookie season in which he averaged 14 points a game and shot a blazing 43% from behind the arc and helped lead the Boston Celtics to the Conference Finals.
A year later, Tatum is coming off a disappointing sophomore season and looks like he’ll be the centerpiece, either of an Anthony Davis trade or of a Boston rebuild. He remains one of the league’s best young wing talents and should move up this list as his career moves forward. It remains to be seen what team that will happen on.
