2. Keldon Johnson

Keldon Johnson hasn't quite broken out this season but has shown solid improvement in a couple of key areas. If he continues to progress at this rate, it's not crazy to think that he could be playing at an All-Star level after a couple of seasons.

After all, Johnson is averaging 15.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, and shooting an impressive 43.7% on 4.2 3-point attempts per game. However, as solid as those numbers are, Johnson still has a few areas in which he can improve upon. Johnson's jumper has made a remarkable turnaround after an ugly shooting slump to start the season, and he should look to build upon that success.

He can do so by upping his average number of 3-point attempts to at least six per game and working to expand his mid-range game. Additionally, Johnson could stand to get to the free throw line more and shoot better than just 71.9%.

As for his finishing, he's definitely shown more versatility there, relying less on crashing into the paint and more on footwork. Still, he needs to work on refining his floater, which could be a deadly weapon. As of now, it's the main reason he's hitting just 48.1% of his two-pointers after shooting 53.1% last season.

Fortunately, these are all realistic goals for him and, if he's able to shore up those parts of his game, his scoring could skyrocket. Add in his defensive ability, and the potential is there for Keldon to eventually become an All-Star.
