Top Ten NBA Players with the Most Potential in 2020Potential is something every NBA player has. Some maximize their potential others falter and never achieve it. These are the NBA players with the most potential in 2020. Remember this list is not about how good they are right now neither is it about their accomplishments. This is purely about potential.
Zion has the most potential in the entire league. Is it fair to say he can be a top-3 player if he reaches his potential? He is an explosive athlete and has shown promise with his jump shot. He is a good passer and plays hard defensively. He just needs to get his health under control and make sure he keeps his weight in a good area. He could be a great player in the future.
I cannot tell you how much I like MPJ. This kid has so much potential if you let him play. He can score in bunches and is very smart. I'm saying he could be an All-NBA player.
Just imagine Ben Simmons surrounded by shooters, defenders, and a lob threat. That would be insane. I think Simmons could be a top-five player if he had that kind of space. Then, obviously, if he develops any kind of three-pointer, he will be unstoppable.
Ja Morant is insane, and I think he can get even better. Imagine Ja Morant surrounded by shooters, which is what the Grizzlies need to acquire. Ja could also develop a more consistent jumper. With that, he would be amazing.
Devin Booker has yet to be on a good team. Let's talk about Booker himself first. He needs to improve his playmaking and defense. The team should surround him with defenders, shooters, and playmakers.
Now, RJ has a lot to work on: his playmaking, his shooting, his dribbling, his decision-making, and more. The Knicks really aren't doing him any favors, though. Surround Barrett with shooters and defense, and you will unlock his potential.
Here's the thing. The Hawks have to do more than this to unlock Trae. Capela is a good start, but they need a lot more shooting and definitely more defense. Trae needs to improve his efficiency, and while he'll never be a good defender, he could at least show effort.
Jayson Tatum is a weird one. I think a team built around Tatum has more potential than what they have now.
Listen here. When you are someone of Bol's height and skill set, you have potential. He will obviously have to manage his body and gain weight. He will also have to get quicker. If he can do these things, he could be a very good center.
Ingram is not on a team that is structured to conform to him. Giving him his own team would increase his scoring output, further maximizing Ingram.
