    In your opinion, do you see any rookies, 2nd/3rd players, or even any veterans who have yet to average 20 ppg in season, but have great potential to reach 20 ppg ?

    Last season, the breakouts were CJ McCollum (6.8 - 20.8); Andrew Wiggins (an obvious breakout); Kyle Lowry (17.8 - 21.2); Kawhi Leonard (16.5 - 21.5); Eric Bledsoe; andd Kemba Walker

    The previous year was Gordon Heyward (16.2 -19.3); Nikola Vucevic


    My Choices:
    Giannis Antetokounmpo
    Khris Middleton
    Karl Anthony Towns (obvious)
    Jalil Okafor (obvious)
    Kristaps Porzingis
    Devin Booker
    Rookies:Brandon Ingram, Ben Simmons



    Borderline:
    D'Angelo Russell (I don't think he can score 20 a game on that Lakers squad would so many other players who can score).
    Dennis Schoeder
    Emmanuel Mundiay

    Schroder will get damn near 20 ppg.

    His per 36 min average last year was 19.5/7.8 assists.

    Should easily take most improved this year.

    The player to watch on Denver is Will Barton. If Denver deals away Gallo for whatever reason, he'll be the top scoring dog there, not Mudiay.

    If Monroe bites the dust off the roster Parker probably will. Because that will be his role and he will finally get 25%+ usg. So far he rarely had gotten the ball.

    Horford?

    And if so, would he be the first person to do it in his 10th season or later

    Tyler Johnson will come close if he gets on the Nets. They don't have too many other options. Lin, Johnson and Lopez are gonna have to carry the shot creation load-- and Lopez is a decent bet to miss some games, too.

    I think Parker, Middleton, and Antetokounmpo could all be near 20 or around, if Monroe is traded off the roster. I feel like the Bucks need more of clean up guy who can defend and rebound. They have great scorers all over the court, but Monroe is kind of stop gap player on that roster. Monroe fits better with well-rounded defensive team that struggles to score.

    I think he is in the right system with the right coaches to do so. I do believe Teague is a better player, right now. But, Dennis has slightly higher ceiling and edge than Teague.

    I'm not really sure who the Hawks are going to make as their go-to guy, or are they going to simply do what they've been doing.
