The next part of Cavs Nation’s Top 101 is now upon us as we look at players ranked 91-82. The list features quite a diverse crop with a number of international players alongside the grizzled veterans of the league. Keep in mind that this is not a fantasy basketball ranking as advanced statistics such as Player Efficiency Rating, Usage Rate, and Win Share were taken into account. Also, no rookies are in the list because, obviously, they have no NBA stats from last year. You can see the players ranked 101-92 by clicking here.

We continue with players number 91 and 90:

91. Paul Pierce, LAC SF/PF

Paul Pierce is obviously on his way to retirement but contenders such as the Clippers should still get some quality production out of the former NBA champion and future Hall of Famer. Playing alongside Chris Paul should greatly benefit his tank as Pierce will try to pick his spots and moments. His reunion with Doc Rivers should also invigorate the veteran swingman.

90. Jrue Holiday, NOP PG

Jrue Holiday has had injury plagued seasons of late but with a fully recovered body, he should be raring for a fresh start with the Pelicans. Aside from being a heady court general, the former All Star is also an underrated defender. What makes the future even more exciting for Holiday is the fact that he will be feeding the future of the NBA in Anthony Davis.

89. Jamal Crawford, LAC SG

Jamal Crawford’s age might have affected his speed and athleticism but his handles and knack for hitting those big shots are still at a high level. Crawford may have been quite the journeyman but it only proves that a lot of teams share the same reverence over his skills. His value, especially in late-game situations, shouldn’t change next year despite rumors of him being shopped by the Clippers.

88. Jared Sullinger, BOS PF/C

Jared Sullinger is a warrior. After surprising everyone by returning from a supposed season ending injury last year, the burly stretch bigman should now be wise enough to keep his weight in check. With that, expect Sullinger to lead the charge of Boston’s youthful frontliners.

87. Timofey Mozgov, CLE C

The Cavs own Timofey Mozgov came to this Cavs team as a player with huge upside and the potential to anchor this Cleveland defense. In less than a season, we have seen that Mozgov can do not only that for the Cavs, but he can also be a scoring machine in the post. The Wizard of Moz gets rank number 96 on our NBA Rank.

86. Giannis Antetokounmpo, MIL SG/SF

Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the league’s top rising talents when talking about potential. He has the physical tools and talent to make him a poor man’s Kevin Durant, which still says a lot, and it’s only a matter of time before the freakishly athletic Greek steps on to the next level. It might not happen at an instant next season with Jabari Parker, Khris Middleton, and Greg Monroe requiring touches as well, but he’s bound to take a forward step either way.

85. Luol Deng, MIA SF

The Sudan-born Deng is a solid piece on and off the court. He is an intelligent player who’s a great fit to Miami’s scheme of things. The former All Star forward, despite being past his thirties already, is still one of the better two-way players in the league. Playing alongside Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, and Goran Dragic should take less pressure off his body which makes for a relatively fresh Luol Deng ready to do some damage.

84. Khris Middleton, MIL SG/SF

With a fresh long-term contract at hand, the ball is now on Khris Middleton`s court to prove that he’s worth the money. The versatile forward has had very productive stretches with Jabari Parker on the sidelines but with the latter’s return, expect a more motivated Khris Middleton to show up next season.

83. Ersan Ilyasova, DET SF/PF

The hardworking Ersan Ilyasova enjoyed a slight rebirth late last season in Milwaukee which made him even more appealing to Detroit’s eyes. Now that he’s to suit up for the Pistons, the Turkish forward will no longer share the spotlight with the Bucks` other wings but he’ll have himself a very nice position as the Pistons` top forward.

82. Jonas Valanciunas, TOR C

Jonas Valanciunas has steadily improved his game every year and all signs point to next season to become no different. Another thing that’s going for the lengthy Lithuanian is the departure of former frontcourt-mate Amir Johnson. In effect, Valanciunas` usage rate should go up as he fills the void left by Johnson.
