#4: Jalen Duren
We overthink things sometimes with Duren, who is 20 years old and already a double-double machine.
He has to get better on defense, and he has every tool necessary to do it, and I repeat, he's only 20 years old. Big men take longer to develop and Duren has already shown he's at least a guy who is going to be a force around the rim, vacuum up rebounds, run the floor and catch lobs.
What's more exciting is his ceiling as he improves on both ends. He's already showing a little hook shot in the lane and is a better passer than he gets credit for, averaging 2.5 assists per game, which is tied for 12th among centers.
He may never be able to shoot, and as I said, he must improve defensively, but his floor is a guy who gets you 15/12 every night and his ceiling is being a top-5 center in the NBA.
He's also a good fit with Cade Cunningham as a legit threat when he rolls to the rim, which clears space in the mid-range.
