    Ranking best young power forwards

    Porzingis
    Jackson, Jr.
    Randle
    Sabonis
    Gordon
    Collins
    Bagley, III
    Markkanen

    Who has the highest ceiling? Who do you think will have the lowest ceiling?

    Porz

    top 2 for me.

    Randle is the worst

    the rest is hard to gauge for me personally.

    JJJ has the highest ceiling. 2 way game and overall impact imo in the future. Randle lowest ceiling, just a empty stat stuffer.

    Markk might have the best offensive ceiling, but I donít think his defence will ever be good enough to ply a main role on a championship squad.

    JJJ and KP are on another level. I really like Bagley and Sabonis. Is KAT a center or PF?

    In today's positionless NBA it is pretty funny to still try to shoehorn players into the antiquated positions e.g. Power Forward, Point Guard, etc. What is Luka? He was drafted as a "small forward" and is the heaviest use point guard in the league.

    Agree; you could effectively use Luka as a power forward and stick him at No. 1 on this list. The OP's choices also leave out a lot of guys in the same age bracket. Giannis and Siakam are both 25 and better than anyone else on his list. I'll still make a noninclusive attempt at ranking.

    1. Giannis: He's in the same age bracket as some of the other candidates, and an MVP.
    2. Paskal Siakam: Fringe MVP candidate proving he could be the main option on a playoff team.
    3. Domantas Sabonis: Should be an all-star ó and a center. Hopefully he gets away from Turner or Indiana.
    4. John Collins: Really screwed himself, but still a promising, healthy big and a walking double double with an awesome shot.
    5. Kristaps Porzingis: Good outside shooter and blocker. People underrate his weakness in the post. Could be the most talented, but still too soft.
    6. Jaren Jackson, Jr.: Slumping this year but still shows some of the most promise as a two-way force.
    7. Marvin Bagley III: A reliable beast before injuries. Hopefully he comes back strong.
    8. Lauri Markkanen: Offensively great, defensively meh.
    9. Aaron Gordon: In a slump, but part of that is the logjam of forwards in Orlando. Elite defensive potential. Portland should trade for him.
    10. Jabari Parker: Don't know what happened to his three-point shot, but he's still showing out with Collins out.
    11. Julius Randle: Just a stat-stuffer, but much of that is a product of the Knicks being all-around terrible. I like his passing, even with the turnovers.
    12. Zach Collins: Damn injury bug! He started slow but has potential as an elite front court defender with range. But I won't rank him higher until I see it manifest.

    Jayson Tatum is BOS's starting PF so he should probably be on this list too.

    Who has the highest ceiling? Who do you think will have the lowest ceiling?
    1. Porzingis, because he has the skillset
    2. Jackson Jr. out of everyone on this list he has the best defense
    3. Sabonis, already an all-star and he seems to be getting better every year
    4. Bagley III, massive upside because he's young and getting buckets every night
    5. Collins, great rebounder and defender, honestly it's a toss-up between Collins and Randle for the 5 spot
    6. Randle, we know what Randle brings to the table. A bruiser who will fight for every board and can get buckets inside. Hasn't shown the ability to shoot consistently
    7. Gordon, a flashy dunker who can push the ball up the court on occasion.
    8. Markkanen, has the lowest ceiling. He can shoot but that's about it. He plays for the worst franchise in the league, as of right now, also he's underutilized
