Zach LaVine – Staying healthy is priority No. 1 for the former slam dunk contest king, who, though inconsistent, was solid when he returned from his ACL injury.
Jrue Holiday – Outplaying Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum in New Orleans’ first round playoff series against Portland was a good sign for the 28-year-old, who thrived playing off the ball.
Gary Harris – Especially if Isaiah Thomas can overcome his hip problems, Denver has a trio of guards who are all capable of averaging over 20 points.
Lou Williams – Who could have possibly predicted that the 31-year-old would average nearly 23 points in his 13th NBA season? Was it a fluke or will Williams be a legitimate All-Star candidate in 2018-19?
Eric Gordon – If not for “Sweet Lou” and his unexpected breakout season, the Rockets’ sharpshooter would have claimed back-to-back Sixth Man of the Year Awards.
Tim Hardaway Jr. – Especially with Kristaps Porzingis out, probably for most if not all of 2018-19, the former Michigan standout should, statistically speaking, have a terrific season.
Bogdan Bogdanovic – Not since the Kings featured Mike Bibby and Kevin Martin have we seen a backcourt this talented in Sacramento.
