In the NBA, teams only have so much cash to throw around. As a result, each franchise has at least one starting position that is weaker than the rest. In today’s era which is dominated by outside scorers, good big men are hard to find.
The center position seems to be going out of style, as there are fewer and fewer traditional centers available. The players highlighted on this list are, unfortunately, the bottom of the barrel in terms of starting big men in the NBA.
Players will not just be judged on their on-court production, but also on what they bring to the team intangibly, how well they fit the center position and how much money they are costing the team. That set of criteria results in some interesting names on the list, as you will soon see.
