80- Derrick Favors (Utah Jazz)
Derrick is in a lot better shape but his offensive game still will need a lot of work. Expect Favors to average 14,10 and 3 blocks in his first season as a starter.
79- Jrue Holliday (New Orleans Pelicans)
Yeah he’s played in an all-star game but even the Sixers thought trading him was best for their team. 17 points and 8 assists sounds about right again.
78- David West (Indiana Pacers)
Signed a big deal again this off season and is expected to be consistent on a very deep team. 17 points and 8 rebounds is a very solid contribution for this team.
77- Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons)
SB Nation has him as the third best player in 2017. I don’t see him being that good but this year top 100 is a for sure thing.
76- Rudy Gay (Toronto Raptors)
I’ve never been high on Rudy Gay and neither were the Grizzlies but you can’t deny his scoring ability.
75- Monta Ellis (Dallas Mavericks)
Scoring machine on a horrible team. I do like Ellis but I don’t think he’ll ever be on a championship quality team unless he’s the 6th man.
74- Kemba Walker (Charlotte Bobcats)
Kemba is going into his third year where a lot of players will make a huge jump in the league, Kemba I think will be one of those.
73- Larry Sanders (Milwaukee Bucks)
New contract extension and enough blocks to fill an arena has Milwaukee excited about the future.
72- Ricky Rubio (Minnesota Timberwolves)
Such an exciting player to watch but really needs work on his shooting. Rubio reminds me a lot of the Pistol.
71- Klay Thompson (Golden State Warriors)
The best shooting backcourt in the league isn’t slowing down any as they will try for the 3-point record for a duo.
