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.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Nurkic is another example of a skilled passing big, and as such, his skillset is highly valued for fantasy hoops. Health is a clear concern, but if he can remain on the court, Nurkic has second-round upside given the lack of depth at center in Portland.
