Tier Four: Average Starters

Tier four has a fairly wide range of power forwards, with several of the players in this tier having more noticeable flaws. There is 37-year-old Al Horford, who, while still solid, is nearing the end of his career. Then there are younger players like Grant Williams, Kyle Kuzma, and P.J. Washington, each of whom just got paid this summer. Based on their market value, they are generally seen as average starters, with Kuzma being able to get much more since he was an unrestricted free agent.

16.) John Collins
17.) Grant Williams
18.) Cam Johnson
19.) P.J. Washington
20.) Nicolas Batum
21.) Al Horford
22.) Kyle Kuzma
22.) Dorian Finney-Smith
24.) Jarred Vanderbilt

Sochan definitely has the potential to be higher than this tier, but some of his advanced metrics don't quite stack up to the seven players in this group. Of course, that largely has to do with playing on a 22-win team and the mixing and matching that Spurs coach Gregg Popovich did with the 22 other players that suited up last season. Playing on a better team with fewer random lineups should do wonders for Sochan, and he should be able to skip this tier entirely and join a higher one next season.
