NBA top 100: Paolo Bansero, James Wiseman highlight future rankings

Following the tradition of previous years, the top 100 list does not rank rookies. You’ll find a few of them ranked here, as well as some notable second- and third-year players to watch in progress. The immediacy of a player’s contributions was slightly a priority here, as we couldn’t select every young player in the NBA. Older players who just missed the cut can be found in the Snubs list.


Paolo Banchero, Orlando Magic

Banchero’s strong, skillful game and creative abilities made him the No. 1 pick, and that frame will quickly propel him into next year’s Top 100 if all goes well. Improved shooting will be the key for the star here, and the Magic will give him plenty of room to figure it out.
