Every year we see players break out in to legit NBA stars. Sometimes they come from nowhere or unexpected teams. We will look at three candidates who could be stars in the NBA really soon.
Tyrese Haliburton Pacers
The Sacramento Kings had Haliburton fall in their lap at pick No. 12 in the 2020 NBA Draft. He was almost instantly one of the best players in the entire class. With the Kings wanting to compete now and having two points guards, they traded him to Indiana. With the Pacers this year he is averaging over 20 points and 11 assists per game. He looks like he can be really good.
Bol Bol Magic
The Denver Nuggets drafted Bol and never game him much of a chance. He was then shuffled around the league before ending up on the Magic. They have given him a real chance in Orlando and he has responded so far with some massive games. He has already had four blocks in a game three times this year and 22 or more points three times as well.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Thunder
Some people may say that SGA had already broken out. This year though he has the Thunder actually winning and he is averaging over 30 points per game. He looks like he will be an All Star this year and for many more years to come. Some people even have him in the MVP conversation.
