Projecting the Top 20 Players for the 2014-15 NBA Season

For the most part, rosters are starting to take shape across the NBA's vast landscape of 30 teams. 

Sure, there are stragglers like Eric Bledsoe and Greg Monroe, prominent players who have yet to be locked into a certain organization for the start of the 2014-15 season, but most have found their homes, whether in new locations or their old stomping grounds. 

And that can only mean one thing: It's time for the mid-offseason re-ranking of the league's best players. 

These rankings are meant to serve as previews for the upcoming campaign, not recaps of the past season. What came to pass in 2013-14 is vitally important, as it's the only numerical basis we have for the vast majority of the NBA's players, but so too is growth, situation and so much more.

Young players are aided by expected growth, as are those who have been paired up with new teammates who will help them find success. Age-related declines and the loss of teammates who benefited a player (or the addition of those who will take away touches and minutes) are accounted for as well.  

Additionally, this set of rankings features the return of two players you might have heard of—Derrick Rose and Kobe Bryant, both of whom are set to be healthy at the start of the upcoming season. 

Where do they fit in? Who's at the very top? Which young guns are on the rise? 

Ready, set, debate!
