After being taken ninth overall in the 2022 NBA Draft, Jeremy Sochan came in and immediately filled a key role for the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs haven't had a true starting power forward since Trey Lyles in the 2019–2020 season, and it's been even longer since they've had a young four who can grow into the role.

While the arrival of Victor Wembanyama may push Sochan out of the starting rotation and back to the bench, he will still play significant minutes at power forward. But where does Sochan rank among the NBA's top power forwards? Let's take a look.

Tier One: MVP Candidates

In a tier by himself is Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak is arguably the best player in the league, and it should come as no surprise that he is at the top of tier one. While other players like JaysonTatum and Kevin Durant spent some time at power forward last season, they are a more natural fit at the three.

1.) Giannis Antetokounmpo

There are some talented scorers and two-way players at this position, but no one comes close to matching the nightly productions from that Giannis offers the Bucks. Hopefully, Sochan ends up in the top tier someday, but certainly not now. But what about Tier 2?
