Notes 
 Had his offseason not been surrounded by drama and trade rumors, James Harden would be a top-three pick, but unfortunately, the Rockets' long-term plans are muddying the waters in projecting where Harden will play this year. His streak as a three-year scoring champion could easily be extended this year, especially with Russell Westbrook out of the picture. The risk of not playing this year is the only reason he isn't higher in these rankings.
