4. Kristaps Porzingis (Boston Celtics) – 87 Overall
The Boston Celtics are going to be excited to have Kristaps Porzingis. Porzingis started his career with the Knicks before really making his mark in the NBA with Luka Doncic on the Dallas Mavericks. The Dallas Mavericks decided to trade Porzingis to the Washington Wizards before going to the Boston Celtics during 2023 offseason.
During the 2022-2023 NBA regular season, Porzingis averaged 23.2 points per game, 8.4 rebounds per game, and 2.7 assists per game. He also shot 49.8% from the field, while also shooting 38.5% from 3-point range. Adding Porzingis to a highly talented Celtics team should do wonderfully for the team. With guys like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown on the team, the opposition will have to lookout for another scoring threat that can also defend the basket really well.
Kristaps Porzingis at an 87 overall is right where I would expect a player like him to be at. In NBA 2K23, Porzingis sat at an 86 overall. However, the 2022-2023 NBA season was statistically the best season of his 8-year career. 87 overall is right where I expect him to be sitting at. This is a very talented Celtics team and they are going to be a real threat next season, just like they are every year.
