Luka
Zion

Tatum
Trae
Morant
Simmons

Booker
Mitchell
JJJ
SGA
Fox

Edited this with the update to OP. Ingram would slot in right after Morant. My list more is more ranked tiers than players, though it's probably how I'd rank them anyways.

Zion
Luka
Morant
Trae
Simmons
Tatum
Booker
Mitchell
JJJ
SGA

I would rate JJJ higher if the question was phrased differently, but one of his strengths is how seamlessly he fits into any system and doesn't really need to be "built around".

Luka
Zion
Tatum
Morant
SImmons
Booker

If I had a team with 3 real scoring threats from outside I would bump Simmons up a lot.

Man has Fox been that bad this year? He was amazing last season - or is it just cause of Sacramento being disappointing and/or no one watching them?

Not bad but he hasn't really taken that 'next step'. Plus he's being compared to a bunch of all-stars and bonafide future all-stars.

I'd probably rate SGA last among these guys too, but higher than Fox.

I was considering health. Zion's body just doesn't look like it will hold up for the long term. I am not basing this on much, just a guess and I also hope I am wrong about him.

Where's Siakam? Only asking because he's always grouped with Tatum and Simmons

I would rate JJJ higher if the question was phrased differently, but one of his strengths is how seamlessly he fits into any system and doesn't really need to be "built around".


This.

Except Morant-Simmons-Tatum are on an equal line for me at the moment, it's too hard for me to differentiate them at this point.
You forgot to add Trae, I'd put him above Booker.

Exactly this.

Same, and for me Trae is in that group as well. He wasn't listed in the OP when I replied.
