3. Jalen Duren

Just 20 days shy of LeBron’s career, the Detroit Pistons rookie shared the stage with the veteran last year and shared his experience (via ESPN) as he said “He been in the league longer than I’ve been alive. So to be on the floor with him is legendary in some way. It’ll be a cool experience.” The talented rookie has 14 points per game, 11.4 rebounds per game and 2.6 assists per game. He is well-rounded in his abilities and a key part of the Pistons this year.

4. Anthony Black

He has featured for the Orlando Magic sporadically off the bench but has been impressive in the limited time. He averages 5.1 points per game, 2.4 rebounds per game and 1.7 assists per game.

5. Dereck Lively II

Dereck Lively II has been phenomenal for the Dallas Mavericks since his debut

The 19 year old center, standing at 7-foot-1 has been phenomenal for the Dallas Mavericks since his debut. He was the 12th overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft by Oklahoma City Thunder. He was traded to the Mavericks in July and he put up 16 points and 10 rebounds on his debut against the San Antonio Spurs. Currently, he averages 8.9 points per game, 7.8 rebounds per game and 1.3 assists per game. He is considered a top prospect in the NBA right now.
