#2: Jeremy Sochan

Rising sophomore Jeremy Sochan showed a lot of potential during his rookie season, leading to increased expectations for year two. While Sochan isn't expected to start, with Wembanyama and Collins playing ahead of him, he can still have a big impact off the bench with his versatile skill set.

He can play next to either player and can both space the floor, attack off the dribble, and create for others. On the other end, he showed the ability to defend guards, raising the possibility that coach Gregg Popovich decides to play all three together or in other lineups that don't feature point guards.
Having a 6'9 Swiss Army knife that can be utilized in several different ways is incredibly valuable and something that only a few teams have.

Draymond Green, a player that Sochan has been compared to, recently signed a 4-year, $100 million deal. Obviously, they are at very different points in their careers but were Sochan an unrestricted free agent this summer, he could have made at least $20 million based on his potential and what he showed as a rookie.

Instead, he will be on a rookie-scale contract for the next three seasons and make just $5.3 million next season, which could quickly prove to be one of the best deals in the NBA. Therefore, there is no question that he will be underpaid next season.
