    My top 20 players UNDER the age of 24..........this is if i was building a team and having a draft and picking a guy for the next half decade plus. I am also dividing them by tiers. If they are in the same tier they are not that that far away from eachother.

    2. Joel Embiid
    3. Karl Anthony Towns
    4. Donovan Mitchell
    5. Ben Simmons
    6 Kristaps Porzingis

    7. Jayson Tatum
    8. Devin Booker
    9. Nikola Jokic

    10. Myles Turner
    11. Andrew Wiggins
    12. Jaylen Brown

    13. Dennis Smith Jr.
    14. Markelle Fultz
    15. Lonzo Ball
    16. Jabari Parker
    17. Brandon Ingram
    18. DeAron Fox

    19. Aaron Gordon
    20. Gary Harris

    Honorable mentions in no particular order

    Zach LaVine
    Domotas Sabonis
    Thon Maker
    Jamal Murray
    Gary Harris
    Julius Randle
    Josh Jackson
    Dragan Bender

    Sadly, Wiggins doesn’t belong on the list. He sucks something terrible.

    Some revisions:

    Gary Harris is on the list and in the honorable mentions.

    Saric, Rozier, and Capela belong somewhere on the list. Saric and Rozier are a bit over 24 but so is at least one guy on the list.

    Probably give an honorable mention to Kyle Anderson and to John Collins.

    good call on Capela.....Saric is 24 as you said - but he is close enough where he should prob be on i t.

    Rozier is 24 as well. But he could prob be on it.

    Where would you put Capela, Saric and Rozier?

    I think that the top 6 guys are pretty much a consensus at the top tier guys....dont ya think?

    Ingram should probably be a bit higher.

    Capela should be probably top 10. Certainly higher than Myles Turner.

    I think at worst it should be a top 7. Jokic needs to be in that tier. Dude averaged 18.5 pts, 10.7 rebs and 6.1 APG last year, shooting 49.9% FG, 39.6% 3PT and 85% FT. Dude is every bit the top tier player.

    Also my personal preference would be to completely remove Wiggins from the list. As a scorer he's talented, but he just hurts your team in so many ways. There is absolutely no way he should be listed in the same category or even near Jaylen Brown.

    Jabari I would argue based on when he plays should be in the 2nd tier but his injury history bumps him. Also lastly I would argue that I would go with Jamal Murray over Gary Harris. Just my personal preference because I think Murray has a much higher ceiling.

    Here's my list:

    1. Giannis Antetokuompo
    2. Joel Embiid
    3. Karl Anthony Towns
    4. Donovan Mitchell
    5. Ben Simmons
    6 Kristaps Porzingis
    7. Nikola Jokic

    8. Jayson Tatum
    9. Jaylen Brown
    10. Devin Booker
    11. Jabari Parker

    12. Myles Turner
    13. Aaron Gordon
    14. Julius Randle
    15. Brandon Ingram

    16. Dennis Smith Jr.
    17. Markelle Fultz
    18. Lonzo Ball
    19. Clint Capela
    20. Jamal Murray

    Honorable Mentions:
    De'Aaron Fox
    Dario Saric

    Put some respect on Gary Harris's name. He should be higher on list.

    Not bad list tho.

    I’d move Wiggins out, slide Jokic up a bit, slide Booker down a bit, slide DSJ down a bit and then I’d put Capela right around where Myles Turner is, Saric around where Lonzo is, and Rozier as an honorable mention.

    It’s hard to believe he was so highly regarded. I guess that’s what happens when you value athleticism over the ability to actually play basketball.

    Ben Simmons will have the best career of anyone on this list, even if he may not be the best right now.

    Jabari Parker and Myles Turner are too inconsistent to be here.

    Also, gotta give more love to the Nuggs backcourt of Murray/Harris after the team had been left for dead in the playoff race only to fall a single overtime period short of facing GS in the first round and perhaps would have provided them their best possible postseason test.

    Julius Randle also asininely low.

    it's weird, i feel like his scouting report coming out was, he'll be a lockdown defender and his offensive game will develop. so much for that.
