Point Guards

1. Ben Simmons

Simmons could realistically play four of the five positions and do them all well, but we will throw him in at point guard for now. Despite his recent issues and his struggles in the last playoffs, Simmons is still an all-star and a top-tier defender at any position.

2. Dennis Schroder

While Schroder hasn’t been particularly spectacular for the Celtics, there are plenty of destinations where he could easily get buckets and give a team value in a potentially smaller role, but his contract is worth it.

3. Jalen Brunson   

The Mavericks are certainly going to miss Brunson’s productivity if he is dealt. They aren’t going to want to pay Brunson if his role is being played by other players or is replaceable. He’d beef up a team’s frontcourt for the rest of the season and is likely due for a payday in the offseason.

Shooting Guards

1. Terrance Ross

Ross is a spark plug player that could benefit nearly any contender and has a role on any team in the NBA. A pure scorer who can create for himself should be highly sought after at this deadline.

2. Evan Fournier

While Fournier’s contract isn’t the most attractive, his explosive scoring is. Fournier is a player that will play within his role but is also a threat to drop 20 points or more on a random night.

3. Eric Gordon

Gordon’s proven shooting and perimeter defense is in no part in question, it’s a matter of the Rockets moving him. Teams would absolutely benefit from both his play and veteran presence.

Small forwards

1. TJ Warren

The Pacers have been clearly making moves to launch their rebuild, and Warren doesn’t make sense long-term for the Pacers. Warren hasn’t played in a long while, but in the bubble, TJ Warren was playing like a star, and when he’s healthy there are teams that will need that scoring.

2. Kenrich Williams

In his time with the Thunder, Williams has found himself as a player and is a contributor that the Thunder wish they would have had in their contending days. His playstyle is one that could quite literally fit any team.

3. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

KCP’s 3-and-D playstyle, and as an overall scorer, should be able to be plugged into any team and make an immediate impact. Whether it be a team looking to make a title run or even just a run to make the playoffs, they should look into bringing in KCP.

Power Forwards

1. Marvin Bagley III

While the start of Bagley’s career hasn’t been the best start in Sacramento, he could benefit from a new location, and because of his low production, he may be an easy grab for a team.

2. Tobias Harris

If the 76ers decide to make a splash and trade for James Harden, Harris’ large contract will likely be dealt. Harris can provide consistent buckets and help with rebounds for a team that needs – and can afford – a third star.

3. Thaddeus Young

Young is a great role player and has been a consistent bright spot on each team he’s been with. A plug and play player who would likely benefit his next team just as much as he benefits the Spurs

1. Myles Turner

Turner is a great defender and can play under the rim and is great as a pick and roll center. Teams with a great facilitating point guard could bring out the best in Turner on the offensive end, and you can expect his defense to be at a high level no matter where he is.

2. Montrezl Harris

A proven sixth man and a productive starter is an asset a lot of teams lack, and Harris could fill that role. In a backup big man role, Harris will dominate opposing backup big men and help put points on the board while the starters are resting.

3. Mo Bamba  

His young career hasn’t lived up to the hype he had when drafted, but with the right situation and a prominent role, that isn’t impossible to be turned around. Bamba has plenty of games where he looks like the unstoppable big man he was projected to be, and with a consistent role, he could be as productive as he’s needed to be.
