Kristaps Porzingis, SF
KP had a surprisingly brilliant rookie campaign in 2015-16 — a couple of seasons ahead of schedule.
The polarizing Latvian quickly emerged as one of the top big men in the league, showcasing a rare blend of poise and mobility.
He’s got the height and length of a big man, yet the skills, mobility and coordination of a small forward. He can be a prolific shot blocker and a menacing dunker. Porzingis is a threat from beyond the arc, and a clutch, hard-working competitor.
Porzingis is foul-prone, lacking muscle and limited with his back-to-the-basket. Although constantly working on his game, he’s still extremely raw — but thankfully coachable.
