Trade Value Rankings 4.0: The Top 100 in the NBA

The HoopsHype Staff is back with our fourth edition of the Trade Value Rankings.

The HoopsHype staff voted on these players and compiled this list. We arrived at this conclusion after weighing factors such as a player’s talent, age, availability, positional scarcity, current salary, and what their next contract could look like. The ranking will be updated constantly as events such as new contracts, injuries, and changes in performance occur.

The previous installment was made in late July following all of the major free agent moves. This newest ranking reflects the start of the regular season and the performances of players thus far. Giannis Antetokounmpo, the perennial MVP candidate with a ton of prime years ahead of him, remains at No. 1 in the Trade Value Rankings.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee)

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $188,855,520 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 1 (-)
Agent: Alex Saratsis

Antetokounmpo remains the best player in the NBA leading the Bucks to a hot start and the league’s best defense with significant injuries on the roster. His value for the franchise extends beyond the court.

Luka Doncic (Dallas)

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $215,159,700 till 2026-27
Previous Ranking: No. 2 (-)
Agent: Bill Duffy

Doncic is having a historic offensive start to the season averaging a ridiculous 36 points per game. He’s at times looked like a one-man show for Dallas’ offense and has pushed them to a strong start with the league’s second-best offense.

Nikola Jokic (Denver)

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $303,037,803 till 2027-28
Previous Ranking: No. 3 (-)
Agent: Mike Lindeman and Jeff Schwartz

Jokic earned a second consecutive MVP last season after leading a depleted Nuggets roster to 48 wins. Expectations were high for the Nuggets with the returns of Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr., and they’re already off to a good start with the league’s fifth-best offense.

Jayson Tatum (Boston)

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $134,896,800 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 4 (-)
Agent: Jeff Wechsler

Tatum is having his best start to a regular season averaging 31.2 points per game on 65 percent true shooting. The Celtics are off to a strong start to the season thanks to his play on the court and his leadership through an unexpected coaching change.

Ja Morant (Memphis)

Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $206,419,440 till 2027-28
Previous Ranking: No. 7 (+2)
Agent: Jim Tanner

Morant is looking like an MVP candidate this season as he’s led a Grizzlies team missing Jaren Jackson Jr. to a nice start. He would probably be much higher on this list if not for the occasional lower-body injuries he suffers, but thankfully he’s been mostly durable in his career.

Devin Booker (Phoenix)

Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $294,073,600 till 2027-28
Previous Ranking: No. 10 (+4)
Agent: Jessica Holtz and Melvin Booker

Booker blew by expectations by being voted into All-NBA 1st Team last season. He will remain with the Suns for the foreseeable future now that he signed a supermax extension with them.

Joel Embiid (Philadelphia)

Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $243,728,770 till 2026-27
Previous Ranking: No. 5 (-2)

The Sixers had a rough start to the season and it largely came from Embiid’s lack of conditioning. The two-time MVP runner-up has so much equity in Philadelphia, they probably still wouldn’t consider trading him even if some of his previous injuries start resurfacing into something long-term. He would probably be a little higher on this list if not for his health history.

Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors)

John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $215,353,662 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 8 (-)
Agent: Jeff Austin

The Warriors are off to a surprisingly bad start but Curry and the rest of the starters aren’t responsible for that. He’s actually off to an amazing start statistically and if his production holds up, he would have the best regular season of his career. The two timelines appear to be clashing and it’s possible the Warriors make some difficult decisions with their young players and trade them to save their season.

Trae Young (Atlanta)

Larry Robinson-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $215,159,700 till 2026-27
Previous Ranking: No. 6 (-3)
Agent: Omar Wilkes

Young is one of the league’s most impactful offensive players. The Hawks haven’t really been challenged this season thus far but they’ve at least taken care of business against teams they’re clearly better than. It’s possible his trade value nears the top of these rankings in the next several years.

Donovan Mitchell (Cleveland)

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $136,582,710 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 11 (+1)
Agent: Ty Sullivan and Austin Brown

Mitchell is having his best scoring season and by far his most efficient shooting the ball overall. He also looks like he’s buying into Cleveland’s defensive philosophy and is trying harder on that end of the court. It’s still early but the Cavaliers might be looking like legitimate championship contenders as they currently hold the best net rating in the league.

Kevin Durant (Brooklyn)

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $197,656,908 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 9 (-2)
Agent: Rich Kleiman

Durant remains one of the league’s deadliest scorers in his 16th season. It could take every asset a team has to acquire him and it’s possible we see his name in trade rumors if Brooklyn’s season continues to spiral.

Anthony Edwards (Minnesota)

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $24,268,217 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 13 (+1)
Agent: Omar Wilkes

Edwards made one of the most seismic leaps in improvement between the majority of his rookie year and last season. His on-the-ball scoring ability gives his potential no bounds, and he should climb these rankings soon as he contains it.

Evan Mobley (Cleveland)

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $17,361,360 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 15 (+2)
Agent: Thaddeus Foucher and Joe Smith

The nearly co-Rookie of the Year is already one of the most impactful defenders in the NBA, and he could be near the top of this list very soon. Cleveland’s future is looking extremely bright with him, Donovan Mitchell, and Darius Garland as their franchise players.

Jaylen Brown (Boston)

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $59,464,285 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 21 (+7)
Agent: Jason Glushon

Brown is one the best secondary stars in the league and still has room to potentially become a great No. 1 option. He’s on track not only to command maximum contract offers league-wide but could also qualify for a supermax extension should he earn All-NBA honors this coming season.

Paolo Banchero (Orlando)

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $22,663,200 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 30 (+15)
Agent: Mike Miller

Banchero is looking like the runaway Rookie of the Year with his high-scoring rate and ability to generate offense on the ball. The Magic look like they have two cornerstones in him and Franz Wagner.

 

Zion Williamson (New Orleans)

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $207,834,817 till 2027-28
Previous Ranking: No. 16 (-)
Agent: Austin Brown

Many were right to remain high on Williamson while he was out last year. Although his efficiency is down a bit from his All-Star sophomore season, he looks like he hasn’t missed a beat as he remains an unstoppable force going to the paint.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City)

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $179,220,000 till 2026-27
Previous Ranking: No. 22 (+5)
Agent: Thaddeus Foucher and Joe Smith

Gilgeous-Alexander is looking like an All-Star caliber player as he’s averaging 30.8 points per game on very strong efficiency. He’s even improved as a defensive playmaker and has been vital to Oklahoma City having the seventh-best defense in the league.

Damian Lillard (Portland)

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $258,694,291 till 2026-27
Previous Ranking: No. 26 (+8)
Agent: Aaron Goodwin

Lillard has shown he still is one of the best players in the league with his hot start to the season after missing most of last season. He should still hold immense trade value but the Blazers’ good start to the year will probably keep him in Portland.

Brandon Ingram (New Orleans)

Andrew Wevers-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $101,500,200 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: No. 18 (-1)
Agent: Jeff Schwartz and Jordan Gertler

Ingram had a strong playoff debut against Phoenix and is looking like he could be an excellent first or second option on a contender. This should eliminate any possibility that the Pelicans listen to offers on him now that they’re looking like a top-tier offense and a likely playoff team.

Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota)

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $294,073,600 till 2027-28
Previous Ranking: No. 19 (-1)
Agent: Jessica Holtz

The Wolves are struggling to gel with their overhauled lineup but Towns remains their offensive engine. Had he not signed the supermax extension, the Wolves might have been looking to trade him this past offseason without a long-term commitment.

Scottie Barnes (Toronto)

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $15,653,280 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 17 (-4)
Agent: Bill Duffy

The reigning Rookie of the Year has the makings of a star and should rise in these rankings this season based on his trajectory. The fact that he’s considered as one of the best returns the Nets could possibly get for Kevin Durant already says enough about how strongly the league views him.

Pascal Siakam (Toronto)

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $73,342,080 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 28 (+6)
Agent: Todd Ramasar and Jaafar Choufani

Siakam has elevated into stardom with his play this season. He’s averaging career highs all across the board and is helping push the pace for Toronto’s 10th-best offense. If he earns All-NBA honors again this season he will become supermax eligible.

Cade Cunningham (Detroit)

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $21,608,160 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 14 (-9)
Agent: Jeff Schwartz and James Dunleavy

Cunningham likely would’ve been much higher on this list had he started his rookie year stronger. He’s been given the keys to the Pistons offense but they’ve struggled to score as they hold the league’s fifth-worst offense.

LaMelo Ball (Charlotte)

Nell Redmond-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $19,524,555 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 12 (-12)
Agent: Raymond Brothers

Ball silenced the doubters after leading a mediocre roster to two straight trips to the play-in tournament. Sidelined due to injury, he lost a bunch of spots in our ranking.

Anthony Davis (LA Lakers)

Rob Gray-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $121,800,240 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: No. 20 (-5)
Agent: Rich Paul

Davis finds himself at No. 25 on this list after going through a second consecutive down season that was also injury-riddled. It’s possible we find out what his actual trade value if the Lakers’ season continues to go nowhere.

Tyrese Haliburton (Indiana)

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $10,023,555 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 40 (+14)
Agent: Aaron Mintz and Dave Spahn

Haliburton is headling Indiana’s offense, which currently ranks as the seventh-best in the league. He’s already looking like one of their cornerstones and his trajectory should raise his trade value much higher than the price they gave up for him.

Jimmy Butler (Miami)

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $184,049,331 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 24 (+3)
Agent: Bernie Lee

Butler had yet another brilliant playoff performance carrying a significant load of the Heat’s offense. Most teams would love to have him, but his upcoming contract extension could lower his price over time. His work ethic and continual durability could make him a good bet to meet the value of it, though.

Tyrese Maxey (Philadelphia)

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $7,070,800 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 34 (+6)
Agent: Rich Paul

The Sixers are extremely fortunate not only to have a third potential star in Maxey but to have him earn less than $3 million in the next two seasons as they navigate challenges building the roster. He’s off to an unbelievable start to the season averaging 23.6 points while shooting 41.8 percent from three.

Kawhi Leonard (LA Clippers)

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $136,920,252 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: No. 23 (-6)
Agent: Mitch Frankel

Leonard was looking like arguably the best player in the league during the 2021 playoffs. His trade value has taken a hit with his recent unavailability but it still remains high thanks to his history on the court.

Darius Garland (Cleveland)

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $203,220,795 till 2027-28
Previous Ranking: No. 27 (-3)
Agent: Rich Paul and Lucas Newton

Garland’s ascent from a good starting point guard to an All-Star has already made him invaluable. He should slowly rise up these rankings over the next several seasons after receiving a maximum contract extension this summer.

Desmond Bane (Memphis)

Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $5,975,323 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 41 (+10)
Agent: Jim Tanner

Bane has already made a significant leap off his previous season where he established himself as one of the better secondary scorers in the league. He is one of the biggest draft steals in recent memory and his small salary makes him virtually untradeable.

James Harden (Philadelphia)

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $68,640,000 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 43 (+11)
Agent: Lorenzo McCloud

Prior to his foot injury, Harden started looking closer to his old self on offense. He could see his trade value rise and the overall discourse on him shift now that he’s set to earn a salary in the mid-thirty million instead of $50 million.

Bennedict Mathurin (Indiana)

Jacob Musselman-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $13,502,880 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent: Nima Namakian

Mathurin has been one of the biggest rookie surprises to start the season averaging 19.4 points per game on 40.3 percent from three-point range. He’s shown flashes of being able to become a primary scoring option in his brief career so far.

Dejounte Murray (Atlanta)

Larry Robinson-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $34,285,120 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 31 (-3)
Agent: Rich Paul

Murray’s ascent into being an All-Star and one of the best defensive guards in the league has completely changed his trade value over the last season. His fit in Atlanta with Trae Young has been fine as the team has taken care of business in their easy schedule thus far.

LeBron James (LA Lakers)

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $141,608,361 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: No. 35 (-)
Agent: Rich Paul

James is showing signs of slippage as he attacks the basket less frequently and is having his worst shooting season since his rookie year as he settles for lower-quality shots. His trade value should still remain high despite his age because of what he brings both on and off the court.

Rudy Gobert (Minnesota)

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $169,655,173 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 29 (-7)
Agent: Bouna Ndiaye

The Wolves are off to a rough start and could be in serious trouble if they don’t turn things around soon. Despite the doubts on his viability in the playoffs, Gobert is still a generational defender who netted the Jazz multiple talented young players and four unprotected future first-round picks.

Bam Adebayo (Miami)

Rich Storry-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $134,896,800 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 25 (-12)
Agent: Alex Saratsis

Adebayo being ranked this high while being a center on a maximum contract is a testament to how impactful a defender he is. The Heat’s struggles this season If he can make the next step offensively and become a higher usage scorer that would increase his value significantly.

Paul George (LA Clippers)

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $136,920,252 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: No. 38 (-)
Agent: Aaron Mintz

George is off to a great start in what could be yet his best season in a Clippers uniform. He’s their leader by default with Kawhi Leonard out indefinitely but they could probably extract several draft picks for him if they ever decide to pivot.

Zach LaVine (Chicago)

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $215,159,700 till 2026-27
Previous Ranking: No. 33 (-6)
Agent: Rich Paul

LaVine had immense trade value when he was earning just $19.5 million annually. It will be interesting to see how it holds up now after signing a maximum contract this past offseason.

Mikal Bridges (Phoenix)

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $90,000,000 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 40 (-)
Agent: Sam GoldfederJordan GertlerJeff Schwartz

Bridges’ $90 million extension has kicked in and he’s already looking like a great value on it. He could probably command multiple good future first-round picks, but the Suns are likely to hold onto him even if they’re blown away by offers since defensive wings like him are extremely hard to come by.

Jrue Holiday (Milwaukee)

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $108,476,241 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: No. 38 (-3)
Agent: Jason Glushon

Holiday might be higher on this list if not for the recent extension he signed that will have him earning close to $40 million at age 35. In the meantime, he remains an All-Star caliber player with a strong impact on winning playoff games.

De'Aaron Fox (Sacramento)

John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $134,896,800 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 69 (+27)
Agent: Chris Gaston

Fox is one of the biggest risers in these rankings with the strong start he’s gotten to this season. He’s averaging career highs in scoring and three-pointers and is having by far his most efficient shooting season. He’s starting to look like the maximum-salaried player the Kings made him.

Khris Middleton (Milwaukee)

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $78,344,828 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 36 (-7)
Agent: Mike Lindeman and Jeff Schwartz

Middleton has had tremendous trade value when he was earning $13-15 million annually, and it’s held up while making north of $30 million. If the Bucks wanted to capitalize and sell high on him now, they could probably get one of the top picks of the upcoming draft for him.

Andrew Wiggins (Golden State)

David Reginek-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $142,616,772 till 2026-27
Previous Ranking: No. 54 (+10)
Agent: Andrew Morrison and Steve Heumann

Wiggins went from one of the league’s worst contracts to arguably one of the better-value wing players. The Warriors rewarded him with a new four-year, $109 million extension after his contributions towards winning the 2022 championship.

DeMar DeRozan (Chicago)

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $55,900,000 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 53 (+8)
Agent: Aaron Goodwin

DeRozan might’ve had one of the biggest rises in trade value compared to 2020-21. His All-NBA season and ridiculous mid-range shooting probably have teams that previously weren’t interested in him willing to give up more than a first-round pick. The 15-year veteran continues to play at a high-level building off the success of last season.

Tyler Herro (Miami)

Jacob Musselman-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $125,722,116 till 2026-27
Previous Ranking: No. 51 (+5)
Agent: Jeff Schwartz and Mike Lindeman

Miami committed to Herro with a four-year, $120 million deal, ending trade speculation for the time being. The Heat finally elevated him to the starting lineup and his performance has been on par with last season.

Jalen Brunson (New York)

Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $104,000,000 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 56 (+9)
Agent: Aaron Mintz and Sam Rose

Brunson brings some much-needed stability to the Knicks’ point guard rotation. He has kept them solid on both ends and is one of their best scorers, often buying them buckets when they need them the most.

Keldon Johnson (San Antonio)

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $80,373,025 till 2026-27
Previous Ranking: No. 86 (+38)
Agent: Lucas Newton and Rich Paul

Johnson is one of the bigger draft steals in recent memory and was just rewarded with a four-year, $74 million contract. He’s showing the potential to be a primary scorer by sustaining his strong shooting efficiency while significantly increasing his volume.

Domantas Sabonis (Sacramento)

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $37,900,000 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 48 (-1)
Agent: Jason Ranne and Greg Lawrence

Sacramento acquired Sabonis with the goal of ending their 16-year playoff drought in mind. He’s developed a great two-man game with De’Aaron Fox and the Kings are still very much in the running for a play-in spot.

Jarrett Allen (Cleveland)

Allison Farrand-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $80,000,000 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 49 (-1)
Agent: Derrick Powell and Jim Tanner

Allen is now worth way more than the late first-round pick Cleveland gave up to acquire him. The one-time All-Star and Evan Mobley are the foundation for the league’s No. 2 defense despite going smaller after acquiring Donovan Mitchell.

Fred VanVleet (Toronto)

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $44,074,074 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 44 (-7)
Agent: Brian Jungreis

VanVleet is due for a raise, likely starting during the 2023-24 season, either via an extension or free agency. Should the Raptors decide to go in another direction, they could probably get a haul for him after the All-Star season he just had.

Bradley Beal (Washington)

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $251,019,650 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 57 (+5)
Agent: Reggie Brown and Mark Bartelstein

Beal’s name has been in trade rumors for over a year now, and the Wizards probably could’ve gotten a massive haul for him last season. Instead, they kept him and re-signed him to a maximum contract. His annual salary, trade bonus, player option, and no-trade clause could complicate a future trade.

OG Anunoby (Toronto)

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $55,928,571 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: No. 52 (-1)
Agent: Omar Wilkes

With Scottie Barnes in Toronto’s plans, Anunoby could be the centerpiece of a significant trade in the future. His elite defense and his team-friendly deal make him appealing to any team.

Jordan Poole (Golden State)

Andrew Wevers-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $131,901,399 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 37 (-17)
Agent: Andrew Morrison and Austin Brown

Poole and the rest of the Warriors’ non-starters are off to a rough start to the season. He still remains one of the best bench-scoring options and should have plenty of time to increase his trade value.

Deandre Ayton (Phoenix)

Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $132,929,128 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: No. 58 (+3)
Agent: Bill Duffy and Nima Namakian

Ayton’s trade value should remain high going forward, even after getting the maximum contract he was seeking since the last offseason. He has proven to be one of the most viable centers for the playoffs.

Chris Paul (Phoenix)

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $44,200,000 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 46 (-10)
Agent: Steve Heumann and Ty Sullivan

Paul has been less aggressive with his shot, which has resulted in inconsistent shooting nights and a significant drop in efficiency and usage. Despite this, there still could be teams out there willing to give up positive assets for the 37-year-old veteran.

Lauri Markkanen (Utah)

Rob Gray-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $39,735,453 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent: Michael Lelchitski

Markkanen is having a career season averaging statistical highs across the board. He’s become more physical on offense taking advantage of mismatches leading to a strong two-point rate. He’s been Utah’s best player in their impressive start and is making a strong case to being named an All-Star.

Jaren Jackson Jr (Memphis)

Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $104,720,000 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 60 (+2)
Agent: Austin Brown

Jackson Jr.’s value would probably be much higher if we’re purely looking at his skill. As of now, it might be limited by his injuries and excessive fouling, which made him a liability in the playoffs at times.

Draymond Green (Golden State)

John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $53,392,692 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 42 (-17)
Agent: Rich Paul

Green’s value had fluctuated recently, especially due to injuries and doubts on if his game will age well. He’s one of the biggest fallers after punching Jordan Poole in the face in practice, creating speculation on his future in Golden State past this season.

Jaden Ivey (Detroit)

Allison Farrand-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $14,866,680 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 79 (+19)
Agent: Austin Brown and Maxwell Saidman

The Pistons lucked out into getting exactly the type of player they needed in Ivey. He’s already one of the better rookies in his class with his aggressiveness in getting to the rim and making the Pistons run on offense. It will be fascinating to see where he ranks over the next few seasons.

Jalen Green (Houston)

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $19,333,320 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 47 (-14)
Agent: Aaron Mintz and Andrew Morrison

Green may not have had quite the season some of the rookies above him had, but he is just as untouchable as them. His explosiveness, ability to get to the rim and score off the dribble makes him one of the league’s most tantalizing offensive prospects.

Jakob Poeltl (San Antonio)

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $9,398,148 till 2022-23
Previous Ranking: No. 84 (+22)
Agent: Michael Tellem and James Dunleavy

Poeltl garnered a lot of trade interest in last year’s trade deadline after elevating himself to being one of the league’s better rim protectors. He is due for a raise soon with his contract running out, and it will be interesting to see if the Spurs want to pay him or potentially trade him with a year left on his deal.

Josh Giddey (Oklahoma City)

Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $12,874,440 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 55 (-8)
Agent: Alex Saratsis

Giddey seems to be part of the next great Thunder team alongside Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Chet Holmgren, and whoever they select in this year’s draft. He should rise through these rankings over the next few seasons.

Marcus Smart (Boston)

Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $77,087,996 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 50 (-14)
Agent: Jason Glushon

Smart is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year who helped lead a historically great to defense to the Finals. Their defense hasn’t been at that level to start the season but they should get a lot better with the eventual return of Robert Williams III.

Anfernee Simons (Portland)

Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $100,000,000 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 80 (+15)
Agent: Bill Duffy

Simons may have already proved he’s worth the $100 million contract he recently signed with his strong start to the season. The Blazers are firmly in the playoff mix led by him and Damian Lillard’s lethal three-point shooting.

Shaedon Sharpe (Portland)

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $12,326,760 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent: Mike George

Sharpe is a big riser in this list after showing flashes of his athleticism and scoring potential. He hasn’t played too much but he is averaging 21 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.4 three-pointers per game per 100 possessions.

Franz Wagner (Orlando)

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $10,767,000 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 61 (-6)
Agent: Jason Glushon

Wagner and Banchero have developed nice chemistry together so far. Wagner’s ability to play point guard has allowed the Magic to play one of the biggest starting lineups in the league.

Chet Holmgren (Oklahoma City)

Ethan Miller/Getty Images

Guaranteed money left: $20,277,240 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 45 (-23)
Agent: Bill Duffy

Holmgren is out for the season with a foot injury but his value should remain high over the next few seasons despite any skepticism about his length and durability.

John Collins (Atlanta)

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $102,000,000 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 69 (-)
Agent: Sean Kennedy and Jeff Schwartz.

Collins has seen his usage go down this season with the arrival of Dejounte Murray and the elevation of DeAndre Hunter, but he remains the same player impact-wise. His name was in trade rumors last offseason but the Hawks’ good start to the season could convince both sides to make it work.

CJ McCollum (Portland)

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $133,135,801 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 67 (-3)
Agent: Sam Goldfeder and Jeff Schwartz

McCollum brings an element of three-point shooting off the dribble that New Orleans lacks on the roster. His play so far for the Pelicans may have already raised his trade value above the one first-round pick they gave up for him.

Jabari Smith (Houston)

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $18,209,160 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 62 (-9)
Agent: Wallace Prather

Smith Jr. surprisingly fell to the third overall selection after being the consensus No. 1 pick after the draft lottery. He has struggled to get his shot going early on but has shown flashes defensively at times. He should still have immense trade value going forward.

Myles Turner (Indiana)

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $18,000,000 till 2022-23
Previous Ranking: No. 77 (+5)
Agent: Bill Duffy

Indiana could be open to moving Turner right now if the right offer comes along. The eight-year veteran is off to what could be a career season with highs in scoring, efficiency, rebounds and blocks.

Alperen Sengun (Houston)

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $6,911,640 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 90 (+17)
Agent: Sean Kennedy

Sengun is a jack-of-all-trades big man on offense with his ability to pass and score efficiently in the paint. He has a lot of work to improve defensively but he’s already a great rebounder and one of the best offensive rebounders in the league.

Gary Trent Jr (Toronto)

Mary Holt-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $36,290,000 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 83 (+9)
Agent: Lucas Newton and Rich Paul

Trent is building off his career year last year with his high-volume three-point shooting the Raptors generally lack on the roster. Any team that trades for him might have to be prepared to give him a raise should he enter free agency in 2023.

Jamal Murray (Denver)

Daniel Dunn-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $101,500,200 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: No. 59 (-16)
Agent: Mike George and Jeff Schwartz

Murray would probably be 20-30 spots higher had he played last season. A healthy bounce back year could put him back in that range.

Nikola Vucevic (Chicago)

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $22,000,000 till 2022-23
Previous Ranking: No. 68 (-8)
Agent: Rade Filipovich and Bill Duffy

Vucevic had quite the down season last year, especially from the three-point line as he struggled to get his shot going with his new team. He’s already starting to look more comfortable with the group this season and has adjusted to a lower usage role. His value might not ever get to the level of return Chicago originally gave up to get him, but a bounce-back season could get him closer to it.

Herb Jones (New Orleans)

Larry Robinson-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $3,621,096 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 63 (-14)
Agent: Kieran Piller and Mark Bartelstein

Jones is locked into a minimum salary over the next two seasons and could make an All-Defense team during the stretch. He’s arguably one of the biggest bargains in the league, and his salary will help the Pelicans navigate roster-building challenges as they near the luxury tax.

Robert Williams (Boston)

Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $48,892,860 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 64 (-14)
Agent: Kevin Bradbury

Williams’ value is intriguing to gauge. On one hand, he’s been invaluable for the Celtics in their Finals run and will to earn just over the mid-level exception. At the same time, his availability has been poor, and he’s missed time at the worst possible stretches.

Cameron Johnson (Phoenix)

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $5,887,899 till 2022-23
Previous Ranking: No. 79 (-)
Agent: Ty SullivanSteve HeumannMelvin Booker

Johnson was one of the most underrated players in the league due to having a limited role off the bench for a stacked Suns team. He’s shining as a starter so far.

Luguentz Dort (Oklahoma City)

Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $64,777,778 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 76 (-4)
Agent: Thaddeus Foucher and Joe Smith

Dort should still maintain strong trade value on $16.5 million annually thanks to his elite perimeter defense. He’s played a vital role in Oklahoma City maintaining the league’s eighth-best defense.

Jonas Valanciunas (New Orleans)

Larry Robinson-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $30,135,000 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 85 (+4)
Agent: Mitch NathanAndrew MorrisonAaron Mintz

Valanciunas is one of the league’s best rebounders and scorers at the rim. His long-term fit next to Zion projects to be great but could also be the centerpiece of a consolidation trade along with their surplus of draft picks.

Jerami Grant (Portland)

Allan Henry-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $20,955,000 till 2022-23
Previous Ranking: No. 73 (+9)
Agent: Mike Kneisley

Grant’s three-year $60 million contract raised many eyebrows when he signed it, but it turned out to be a great value seeing the Pistons were able to extract a future first-round pick for him. He’s been excellent for the Blazers thus far in their 7-3 start to the season including several clutch game-winners.

RJ Barrett (New York)

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $117,900,635 till 2026-27
Previous Ranking: No. 65 (-18)
Agent: Bill Duffy

The Knicks locked in Barrett to what could be a great value contract in a rising cap environment if he makes significant improvements. He has the tools to be one of the better scorers in the league if he can improve his overall efficiency.

Kristaps Porzingis (Washington)

Patrick Smith/Getty Images

Guaranteed money left: $69,849,600 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent: Janis Porzingis

Porzingis is off to a strong start to the season despite his numbers looking more or less the same as in previous years. He’s been arguably Washington’s most impactful player since he opens up their spacing and defensively is disruptive in the paint.

Aaron Gordon (Denver)

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $86,640,001 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent: Calvin Andrews

Gordon has been an excellent fit next to Jokic with his versatility on both ends of the ball and athleticism. He’s increased his trade value significantly since getting traded to Denver and has been one of their most consistent and available starters recently.

Keegan Murray (Sacramento)

Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $16,417,440 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 81 (-5)
Agent: Mark Bartelstein and Kyle McAlarney

The Kings made a lot of heads turn when they passed on Jaden Ivey but Murray has been a good player for them so far. He’s been one of their better players and is shooting the ball pretty well already.

Clint Capela (Atlanta)

Rick Osentoski/Getty Images

Guaranteed money left: $62,588,176 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: No. 89 (+2)
Agent: Darren ‘Mats’ Matsubara and Jason Ranne

Capela should be much higher on this list should he regain his 2020-21 form. There is no rush to trade him now, but he could be available down the line when Onyeka Okungwu is due for an extension, assuming he develops into a starter.

Julius Randle (New York)

Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $106,444,800 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 75 (-13)
Agent: Steve Heumann and Aaron Mintz

Randle’s value cratered after signing his four-year, $106.4 million extension and immediately regressing back to the mean. It could continue to decline if he doesn’t regain his All-Star form while on an ascending contract.

Kyle Kuzma (Washington)

Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $26,000,000 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent: Austin Brown

Kuzma proved he can thrive in secondary and tertiary roles after getting a change of scenery in Washington. His versatility and salary makes him a player any team could use.

De'Andre Hunter (Atlanta)

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $99,835,881 till 2026-27
Previous Ranking: No. 98 (+8)
Agent: Thaddeus Foucher and Joe Smith

The Hawks gave Hunter a four-year, $90 million contract as a sign of confidence that he will overcome his durability issues and be their cornerstone two-way wing player. So far the returns on that are great as he’s having his best season since the beginning of his sophomore year.

Terry Rozier (Charlotte)

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $94,539,789 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: No. 88 (-3)
Agent: Aaron Turner

It’s possible Rozier’s trade value declined a bit after capitalizing on a four-year, $96.3 million extension last offseason. His value could be displayed if the Hornets decide to trade him to clear room for new contracts for LaMelo Ball and PJ Washington.

Jordan Clarkson (Utah)

Rob Gray-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $27,600,000 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent: Rich Paul

Clarkson is having a career year that includes a larger distributing role as he’s doubled his assists per game from last season. His leadership and role in helping the Jazz get off to a great start should make plenty of teams interested in acquiring him.

Saddiq Bey (Detroit)

Allison Farrand-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $7,516,063 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 91 (-2)
Agent: Jordan Gertler and James Dunleavy

Bey is quietly becoming one of the better young scorers in the league. There’s no reason for the Pistons to move him, but his potential could probably net them a first-round pick in a trade right now.

Tobias Harris (Philadelphia)

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $76,903,200 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: No. 78 (-16)
Agent: Torrel Harris

Harris remains a great role player, but his contract has limited his trade value over the last few seasons. With only two years left on it, his value has slowly grown solely based on the passage of time.

Buddy Hield (Indiana)

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $40,457,591 till 2023-24
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent: Diana Day

Hield is having one of his best three-point shooting seasons so far averaging 4.2 makes on 10 attempts per game. He’s played well enough to raise his trade value into the Top 100 and there should be plenty of interest in him around the trade deadline.

Bojan Bogdanovic (Detroit)

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $41,550,000 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent: Jason Ranne and Darren ‘Mats’ Matsubara

Bogdanovic is averaging 19.5 points per game while shooting 46.8 percent from three on 7 attempts per game. He is exactly what the Pistons needed after being one of the worst three-point shooting teams in the league last year.

Kevin Huerter (Sacramento)

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $65,000,000 till 2025-26
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent: Andy Shiffman and Mark Bartelstein

Huerter has brought some much needed shooting to this Kings team. He’s been on fire to start the season averaging 3.9 threes off 7.6 attempts per game on 67.7 percent true shooting.

Malcolm Brogdon (Boston)

Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $67,600,000 till 2024-25
Previous Ranking: No. 99 (+1)
Agent: Austin Brown and Ty Sullivan

Brogdon’s injury history has likely dried the market for him, which played in Boston’s favor. He’s been great for them off the bench providing a burst of offense and an element of driving to the rim.

Ayo Dosunmu (Chicago)

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $1,563,518 till 2022-23
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent: Jeff Schwartz and Mike Lindeman

Dosunmu has filled in nicely for the absent Lonzo Ball with his perimeter defense and strong efficiency in low usage. He will be a restricted free agent this offseason and is making a strong case for the Early Bird exception maximum salary he’s eligible for projected at four years, $50 million.

Josh Hart (Portland)

Megan Briggs/Getty Images

Guaranteed money left: $12,960,000 till 2022-23
Previous Ranking: New entry
Agent:Aaron Mintz, Dave SpahnSteve Heumann

Hart’s usage has taken a dip with the Blazers starting lineup being healthy but he has surpassed expectations as their starting small forward. He’s one of the better rebounding and paint-scoring guards in the league.
