Notes 
 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.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge LeBron fan. I just can't justify drafting him around the Round 1/2 turn this season. James finished 24 in per-game average last season and 75 in totals after appearing in just 45 contests. He provided above-average production in points, assists, rebounds, threes, steals, and FG% while playing 33.5 minutes per night.The Lakers' move to add Russell Westbrook (a player who needs the ball in his hands) was surely calculated to take some of the ball-handling responsibilities away from LeBron and give him another reliable playmaker. In his short tenure with the Lakers, he's been the de facto PG, racking up plenty of counting stats along the way. With Russ in town (in addition to other notable shooters and playmakers including Carmelo Anthony), it wouldn't be surprising to see a reduction in workload for the King, pushing his value back to the end of the second or beginning of the third round. He should still provide elite per-game numbers, but they won't be worth a first-round selection. His value diminishes even more in roto leagues based on his recent durability.
