Notes 
 Fresh off signing a max extension, Butler will look to continue his strong play in Miami this season. He averaged 21/7/7 last season with 2.1 steals and just 2.1 turnovers. In two seasons with the Heat, he's averaged 6.8 boards and 6.5 dimes. While the assist numbers will likely take a hit with Kyle Lowry on the roster, Butler shouldn't fall off enough in that category to drop outside the second round of drafts. He's not a three-point shooter, but he'll provide strong contributions nearly everywhere else, including elite steal totals. Current ADP suggests Butler is being undervalued, and if you can land him around pick 20 or later, you've got yourself real value.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
One of the best passing big men in basketball, Sabonis averaged a ridiculous 6.7 dimes from the center position to go with 20.3 points and 12.0 boards. He also posted 10 triple-doubles in his career-best campaign. Sabonis has shown continued improvement as a scorer, rebounder, and facilitator in each year since entering the league, and there's optimism that he hasn't peaked yet. Top-20 value isn't out of the question at all.
