Position: C

Age: 21

Height: 7’1″

The Rookie of the Year runner up was a sensation last year for the abysmal Phoenix Suns, posting a double-double throughout the whole year he did not receive as much attention as warranted, however.

The Suns have not been a playoff contender for years not, but with a young core with Ayton at the heart of it could this FINALLY be the year they make the playoffs?

The two-time Defensive Player of The Year winner is once again one of the focal points for the Utah Jazz this upcoming season. With one of the longest wingspans in the NBA, Gobert has always been touted as one of the best rim defenders in the league and will look to improve upon this.
