This spot is normally reserved for our top-20 player rankings for the entire NBA (see here); however it’s so late into the season and there hasn’t been much fluctuation from week to week, so I decided to switch it up a bit here.
This week we’re going to take a look at the top 20 players that are 21 years old or younger. This includes their play to date as well as potential play based on what we have seen so far.
Hope you enjoy and if I missed your favorite player 21 and under — let me know!
Archie Goodwin (age 19; Phoenix Suns)
I really wanted to have Archie in these rankings but we just haven’t seen enough of him to get a clear picture of what he can do now, or really what he has in store for the Suns in the future. He’s one of the youngest players in the league and still has plenty of time to develop.
