#10 Dennis Schroder

If anyone is going to dethrone reigning back-to-back Sixth Man of the Year Award winner Lou Williams, Schroder might be the one who could do it. One of the main reasons the Thunder have exceeded expectations this season after making a pair of blockbuster trades over the summer is their unpredictability on offense when they have three playmakers on the floor at the same time. Chris Paul, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Schroder have been outstanding together. Maybe the most extraordinary statistic in the entire league, OKC has an offensive rating of 125.0 when all three are on the floor together – best not only on the Thunder but in the whole league among three-player lineup combinations who have appeared on the court at the same time in at least 30 games.

Other players deserving a mention on this list include Dallas’ Kristaps Porzingis, Sacramento’s Bogdan Bogdanovic, Miami’s Goran Dragic, Chicago’s Lauri Markkanen, Washington’s Davis Bertans, Phoenix’s Ricky Rubio, Chicago’s Tomas Satoransky, Dallas’ Maxi Kleber, Memphis’ Jonas Valanciunas and Toronto's OG Anunoby.

Because Indiana's Domantas Sabonis was born in the United States, he was not included on this list.
