POINT GUARDS / SHOOTING GUARDS /
SMALL FORWARDS / POWER FORWARDS
Kristaps Porzingis / Washington (Player Option)
Playing some of his best basketball since his New York days. Shooting numbers are down but he’s still a huge threat from three. Good face-up scorer for a big man and still a very solid shot-blocker, too.
2022/23 stats: 22.7 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 2.5 apg, 48.0 FG%, 36.8 3P%
2022/23 earnings: $33,833,400
Career earnings: $107,053,494
Agent: Jeff Schwartz
Nikola Vucevic / Chicago
Defensively deficient big man whose shooting has cooled off to the point his impact often wanes towards the negative. Still, a double-double machine with good face-up scoring and post-up skills down low.
2022/23 stats: 18.0 ppg, 11.3 rpg, 3.4 apg, 52.2 FG%, 36.1 3P%

Career earnings: $134,209,237
Agent: Rade Filipovich and Bill Duffy
Jakob Poeltl / Toronto
Extremely efficient center who does all of his damage on offense near the paint. Excellent defender who can bother foes down low and switch onto wings on occasion. Good finisher out of the pick-and-roll.
2022/23 stats: 12.1 ppg, 9.0 rpg, 3.1 apg, 1.1 bpg 61.6 FG%

Career earnings: $29,083,657
Agent: Michael Tellem and James Dunleavy
Brook Lopez / Milwaukee
Despite getting up there in age, still extremely effective thanks to three-point shooting and shot-blocking. Can get you a bucket out of the post from time to time, too.
2022/23 stats: 14.3 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 2.4 bpg, 50.1 FG%, 36.9 3P%

Career earnings: $158,867,792
Agent: Darren ‘Mats’ Matsubara
Kevin Love / Miami
Has adapted well from being a superstar to being a bench role player and locker-room leader. Can still shoot very well for a big man, gobble up rebounds and create for teammates.
2022/23 stats: 8.5 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 1.9 apg, 38.9 FG%, 35.4 3P%

Naz Reid / Minnesota
As he has gotten into better shape, he has become a very productive and impactful big man, one who can space the floor, attack through face-ups and finish down low.
2022/23 stats: 10.3 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.0 apg, 53.5 FG%, 33.1 3P%
