Notes 
 Paul George is a tricky one to rank assuming Kawhi is healthy. In his 80 games with Leonard on the Clippers he is averaging 21.6 PPG, 4.6 RPG, and 6.1 APG. While he is averaging 2.5 fewer shot attempts per game, his efficiency is slightly higher from 3P range. George is still a deadly scorer and brings a solid nightly floor even with Leonard's presence. The addition of point guard John Wall should create even more 3P opportunties for one of the game's top snipers.
Mike Randle - BettingPros
Jimmy Butler is 32 years old, and has failed to reach 60 regular season games played since 2016-2017. However, when he plays he is a fantasy machine. Butler is a box scorer stuffer that has averaged over 38 FPPG in each of the past three seasons. He remains the clear top option on an NBA Championship-caliber Miami team. Few players in the Top 20 can match is 2.5 steals/blocks per game while carrying 30 PPG nightly upside.
