5.) Zach Collins

Another surprise? Possibly. Though for the Spurs fans who followed along last year, which I'm sure was most of you, it would be difficult to find anyone who doesn't respect how Zach Collins excelled after assuming a starting role. His effectiveness as a high post playmaking hub allowed him to carve up defenses with his backdoor passing and outstanding top-of-the-key creation. How many players have that level of passing functionality at his size and position?

While it may look funky from time to time, there is no doubt Zach Collins will most likely find you if you manage to spring yourself free from your defender. After moving into the starting lineup, he averaged 3.8 assists per game. The turnovers were a bit high, but he took risks you're willing to live with. Expect some high-low sorcery between him and Wembanyama next season. Opponents will have migraines trying to defend that action, and Collins will continue finding teammates for easy points.
