Trade Value Rankings 6.0: The Top 100 in the NBA










We’re back with our pre-Trade Deadline edition of the Trade Value Rankings. Here, the HoopsHype staff gets together to rank players, weighing factors such as talent, performance, age, availability, positional scarcity, current salary, and what their next contract could look like.

MVP frontrunner Luka Doncic remains at the top of the rankings.

Doncic continues his dominant scoring season averaging 33 points per game. He’s at times looked like a one-man show for Dallas’ offense and could be a threat to end Nikola Jokic’s MVP reign.

Antetokounmpo remains a close second in our trade value rankings. He may not be at the top of the MVP conversation this year but he might be the best player in the league come playoff time. His value for the franchise extends beyond the court.

Jokic remains firmly in the mix for a third straight MVP award. He is at the top of many all-in-one advanced metrics and is the engine of what is essentially the league’s number-one offense. With him arguably having his best season, not winning the award could be the product of voter fatigue.

Tatum is having a career season averaging highs all across the board. The Celtics continue to have the league’s best record thanks to his play on the court and his leadership through an unexpected coaching change over the offseason.

Despite their recent skid, the Grizzlies remain separated from the rest of the bunched-up West. They are well-equipped for a deep playoff run should they stand pat ahead of this year’s trade deadline. But if they want, they could make a splashy trade involving some of their future draft picks.

Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $243,728,770 till 2026-27

The Sixers had a rough start to the season but Embiid has since regained his dominant form on both ends. He leads the league in scoring and has slowly put his name at the front of the MVP debate again after leading the Sixers to 20 wins in their last 25 games. This could be the year he not only finally wins the award but also gets the Sixers back to the Conference Finals.

Booker’s value has been accentuated by his absence with the Suns falling nearly out of the play-in mix since he got injured. Phoenix could be primed to make a run upon his return and potential trades to improve the roster.

Like with Booker and the Suns, Durant’s value to the Nets is priceless after seeing them struggle a bit now that they’re missing him from the lineup. Brooklyn could be aggressive buyers ahead of the trade deadline in an attempt to give Durant a stronger rotation to return to.

The Warriors continue to have a weird season despite Curry’s return to the lineup. They still have a chance to make a deep playoff run thanks to his elite shooting season.

Gilgeous-Alexander is set to earn his first All-Star appearance with an impressive statistical season and very strong efficiency. His impact on winning basketball is becoming apparent after leading the Thunder to a run that has put them in the mix for the play-in tournament.

Many were right to remain high on Williamson while he was out last year. He is having the best season of his career and could even earn All-NBA honors this year, which would increase his upcoming maximum contract to 30 percent of the cap. The Pelicans have lost 11 of their last 14 games since he’s been gone.

Larry Robinson-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $215,159,700 till 2026-27

Young is one of the league’s most impactful offensive players despite a down-shooting season and an uninspiring Hawks season. His trade value remains extremely high and could return a haul of draft picks and prospects should Atlanta decide to go in another direction in the future.

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $136,582,710 till 2025-26
Agent: Ty Sullivan and Austin Brown

Mitchell is having his best scoring season and by far his most efficient shooting the ball. He is buying into Cleveland’s defensive philosophy and is trying harder on that end of the court. The early returns for the Cavaliers giving up so much to acquire Mitchell are looking good.

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $22,663,200 till 2023-24
Agent: Mike Miller

Banchero is looking like the runaway Rookie of the Year with his high-scoring rate and ability to generate offense on the ball. The Magic still have a chance to get into the play-in mix with a late-season surge now that the roster is mostly healthy.

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $24,268,217 till 2023-24

Edwards is making a late push for serious All-Star consideration. Most of Minnesota’s season has been a mess but his recent play has helped stabilize the ship for the team. They are now within the Top 10 of the West standings and still have a chance at meeting their expectations for this season.

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Agent: Aaron Mintz and Dave Spahn

Haliburton led the Pacers to a surprising start to the season and they have tumbled down the standings since he went down with a knee injury. He’s their cornerstone and his trajectory should raise his trade value much higher than the price they gave up for him.

Rob Gray-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $121,800,240 till 2024-25
Agent: Rich Paul

Davis has embraced being a center and is having one of the best seasons of his career. The Lakers could be primed to make a big run now that he’s back from his foot injury. A trade for additional reinforcements could get the Lakers ready for a playoff run with the way Davis and LeBron James are playing.

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Lillard still holds immense trade value despite a good case for the Blazers to have traded him years ago. Should the team continue to struggle and both sides decide to part ways, Portland should still receive a massive haul for him.

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $59,464,285 till 2023-24
Agent: Jason Glushon

Brown is one of the best secondary stars in the league and still has room to potentially become a great No. 1 option. He’s on track not only to command maximum contract offers league-wide but could also qualify for a supermax extension should he earn All-NBA honors this season.

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $17,361,360 till 2023-24
Agent: Thaddeus Foucher and Joe Smith

The nearly co-Rookie of the Year is already one of the most impactful defenders in the NBA, and he could be near the top of this list in the future. Cleveland’s future is looking extremely bright with him, Donovan Mitchell, and Darius Garland as their franchise players.

Andrew Wevers-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $101,500,200 till 2024-25
Agent: Jeff Schwartz and Jordan Gertler

The Pelicans are set to reclimb the standings with Ingram back and Zion Williamson up next to return. Ingram won’t make the All-Star this season after missing so much time with a toe injury but he plays at the level of one.

Agent: Todd Ramasar and Jaafar Choufani

Siakam is having another strong season where he could become supermax eligible if he earns All-NBA honors again. The Raptors could look to avoid that scenario if they decide to trade him ahead of this year’s trade deadline. While he seems unlikely to be moved, the Raptors could consider it if another team offers a haul for him.

Ball could be surrounded by many new teammates after the trade deadline. With the Hornets seemingly out of the playoff mix, they could look to mve many of their veterans and young players with new contracts coming up.

The reigning Rookie of the Year hasn’t built off the success of last season but should rise in these rankings eventually based on his trajectory. If the Raptors become sellers, the reduced pressure to win could allow Barnes to focus on his progress and make the leap many expect from him.

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $294,073,600 till 2027-28

Injury concerns impacted Towns’ trade value as he continues to miss significant time with a calf injury. Had he not signed the supermax extension, the Wolves might have been looking to trade him this past offseason without a long-term commitment.

Rich Storry-USA TODAY Sports

Adebayo is having an All-Star-worthy season as the driving force keeping the Heat above play-in territory. He’s also making strides offensively in a way this roster desperately needs. His evolution as a two-way and versatile defensive center makes him one of the best big men in the league.

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Garland’s ascent from a good starting point guard to an All-Star has already made him invaluable. He should slowly rise up these rankings over the next several seasons after receiving a maximum contract extension this past summer.

Fox is starting to look like the maximum-salaried player the Kings made him. He’s averaging career highs in scoring and three-pointers and is having by far his most efficient shooting season. The Kings could finally be back in the playoffs thanks to him and Domantas Sabonis.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $184,049,331 till 2025-26

Butler continues to impact winning at a high level well into his age-33 season. His work ethic and continual durability could make him a good bet to meet the value of his recently signed three-year, $146.4 million extension.

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $7,070,800 till 2023-24
Agent: Rich Paul

Maxey is back from his foot injury and hasn’t lost a step. He remains a major contributor to the Sixers’ success and has sacrificed his starting spot for the team’s benefit. That won’t reduce his trade value or his place as Philadelphia’s future cornerstone.

Jacob Musselman-USA TODAY Sports

Mathurin came into the season making every shot before cooling off. His trade value remains strong thanks to his potential and his recent scoring tear.

George might be having his best season in a Clippers uniform. The Clippers could be set to finally make a run and separate themselves in the West if they make a big trade. If they ever decide to become sellers, they could probably extract several draft picks for George.

Bane has already made a significant leap off his previous season where he established himself as one of the better secondary scorers in the league. He is one of the biggest draft steals in recent memory and his small salary makes him virtually untradeable.

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

James is having a strong season in year 20 that’s maintaining his strong trade value. The pressure will be on the Lakers to make a significant deal that increases their title odds with James playing at an All-NBA level.

Harden should be an All-Star this season despite the number of games he missed that could hamper his case. He’s been everything the Sixers needed when they acquired him and more.

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $37,900,000 till 2023-24
Agent: Jason Ranne and Greg Lawrence

Sabonis had a strong case for being an All-Star starter but is on track to be named a reserve this week. He is statistically one of the best regular season players this season and his play has led the Kings to third in the West.

Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $104,720,000 till 2025-26
Agent: Austin Brown

Even if the Grizzlies statisticians are pumping Jackson Jr.’s blocks at home, he is still having the best defensive season in the league. His block rate is still astonishing and opponent field goal percentage plummets when shots are taken in his vicinity.

Leonard may have finally regained the form the Clippers need if they are going to make a deep playoff run. As long as he and Paul George remain healthy the Clippers have just as good a shot as any other team to make it out of the West.

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $55,900,000 till 2023-24
Agent: Aaron Goodwin

DeRozan continues to hold up what was thought to be unsustainable shooting from last season. The Bulls have managed to climb their way back into the play-in mix but they remain far from a legitimate playoff threat. The case for trading DeRozan now would be to capitalize on his high level of play and get more back than what they initially gave up for him.

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $215,159,700 till 2026-27

LaVine is starting to look like his old self after shaking off the post-knee surgery rust. His trade value should remain high and could be tested if the Bulls can’t reach last year’s highs and decide to become sellers.

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports

Agent: Jason Glushon

Holiday might be higher on this list if not for the recent extension he signed that will have him earning close to $40 million at age 35. In the meantime, he remains an All-Star caliber player with a strong impact on winning playoff games.

Anunoby is looking like a candidate to earn All-Defense honors this season. With the Raptors potentially looking to become sellers, he would easily become one of the best players to hit the trade market. His elite defense and team-friendly deal would make him appealing to any team.

Brunson brings some much-needed stability to the Knicks’ point guard rotation. He has kept them solid on both ends and is one of their best scorers, often buying them buckets when they need them the most. His All-Star caliber season and leadership have helped the Knicks remain in the playoff mix.

Wiggins went from one of the league’s worst contracts to arguably one of the better-value wing players. The Warriors rewarded him with a new four-year, $109 million extension after his contributions towards winning the 2022 championship.

Bridges’ $90 million extension has kicked in and he’s already looking like a good value on it. He could probably command multiple good future first-round picks, but the Suns are likely to hold onto him even if they’re blown away by offers since defensive wings like him are extremely hard to come by.

The Pistons lucked out into getting exactly the type of player they needed in Ivey. He’s already one of the better rookies in his class with his aggressiveness in getting to the rim and making the Pistons run on offense. It will be fascinating to see where he ranks over the next few seasons.

Green may not have had quite the rookie season some in his class had, but he’s had one of the bigger sophomore rises. His explosiveness, ability to get to the rim, and scoring off the dribble make him one of the league’s most tantalizing offensive prospects.

Markkanen is having a career season averaging statistical highs across the board. He’s become more physical on offense taking advantage of mismatches leading to a strong two-point rate. He’s been Utah’s best player in their impressive start and is on track to being named an All-Star reserve.

Gobert is one of our biggest fallers with the team still struggling to fit around him. Hyperbolic claims of the Wolves’ trade for him being the worst in NBA history will continue to get louder if they can’t make it work.

Agent: Reggie Brown and Mark Bartelstein

Beal’s name has been in trade rumors for over a year now, and the Wizards probably could’ve gotten a massive haul for him last season. Instead, they kept him and re-signed him to a maximum contract. His annual salary, trade bonus, player option, and no-trade clause could complicate a future deal.

Allison Farrand-USA TODAY Sports

Guaranteed money left: $80,000,000 till 2025-26
Agent: Derrick Powell and Jim Tanner

Allen is now worth much more than the late first-round pick Cleveland gave up to acquire him. The one-time All-Star and Evan Mobley are the foundation for the league’s No. 1 defense despite going smaller after acquiring Donovan Mitchell.

Allan Henry-USA TODAY Sports

Agent: Mike Kneisley

Grant’s three-year $60 million contract raised eyebrows when he signed it, but it turned out to be a great value seeing the Pistons were able to extract a first-round pick for him. Portland reportedly has a three-year, $112.7 million maximum extension on the table for him but he could look to earn more in free agency.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Agent: Mike Lindeman and Jeff Schwartz

Middleton had tremendous trade value when he was earning $13-15 million annually, and it’s held up while making north of $30 million. If the Bucks wanted to capitalize and sell high on him now, they could probably get enough draft picks and prospects to set them up for the future.

Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

Ayton’s trade value should remain high going forward, even after getting the maximum contract he was seeking since the last offseason. He has proven to be one of the most viable centers for the playoffs.

Patrick Smith/Getty Images

Porzingis is having a strong season despite his numbers looking more or less the same as in previous years. He’s been arguably Washington’s most impactful player since he opens up their spacing and defensively is disruptive in the paint.

Smart is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year who helped lead a historically great defense to the Finals. The Celtics could be poised to make one more trade to fortify their already dominant roster, even if it’s overkill.

Smith Jr. surprisingly fell to the third overall selection despite being the consensus No. 1 pick after the draft lottery. He has struggled to get his shot going early on but has shown flashes defensively at times. He should still have immense trade value going forward.

Williams’ value is intriguing to gauge. On one hand, he’s been invaluable for the Celtics in their Finals run and will earn just over the mid-level exception. At the same time, his availability has been poor, and he’s missed time at the worst possible stretches.

Lopez being a frontrunner for Defensive Player of the Year in his 15th season is certainly one of the bigger surprises of the year. He and Giannis Antentokounmpo are anchoring the No. 3 ranked defense in the league.

Poeltl garnered a lot of trade interest at last year’s trade deadline after elevating himself to being one of the league’s better rim protectors.

Sengun is a jack-of-all-trades big man on offense with his ability to pass and score efficiently in the paint. He has a lot of work to improve defensively but he’s already a great rebounder and one of the best offensive rebounders in the league.

Dort should still maintain strong trade value with his $16.5 million annual salary thanks to his elite perimeter defense. He’s a major contributor toward the Thunder being in the mix for a play-in spot.

Clarkson is having a career year that includes a larger distributing role as he’s nearly doubled his assists per game from last season. His leadership and role in helping the Jazz get off to a great start should make plenty of teams interested in acquiring him.

Murphy III is already looking like one of the best overall shooters in the league. For a team that attempts so few three-pointers per game, it goes without saying he is very important to the Pelicans’ success.

Russell is having one of the more efficient stretches of his career after getting off to a bad shooting start to the season. He has seen his name in trade rumors recently with the Wolves looking for a new answer at point guard. He will need to keep this up if he’s going to secure a lucrative contract in free agency this summer.
