6. Andrew Wiggins, Golden State Warriors
It feels like this version of Andrew Wiggins is the closest we've gotten to what everyone expected when he was drafted first overall in 2014. Wiggins has been confident shooting the ball and has made major strides in efficiency, shooting near 50% for the season. It's not surprising that playing alongside the likes of Stephen Curry and Draymond Green has boosted his numbers a bit.
5. Mikal Bridges, Phoenix Suns
The 2018 lottery pick has come onto the scene as an elite two-way player for the Suns. Mikal Bridges has a great feel for the game, is a reliable on-ball defender, and is a knock-down shooter. His continued development will be instrumental in the Suns' pursuit of a second straight Western Conference championship.
4. Michael Porter Jr., Denver Nuggets
Sadly, it was announced Monday afternoon that Michael Porter Jr's season is officially finished, as he's set to undergo back surgery. When healthy, he's easily a top-five small forward in the West. In 2021, he started 54 games and averaged 19 points per contest as the Nuggets' third scoring option. Health will be the primary question for him going forward, but his potential remains sky-high.
