#21 Tyrese Haliburton

The highest ranked Pacer on the list is Tyrese Haliburton. Did you imagine any different? Tyrese is having himself a season averaging ridiculous numbers of assists and points and being the unquestioned leader of the Indiana Pacers.

Since coming over from the Sacramento Kings, Tyrese has been playing big minutes and the Pacers have taken that trade all the way to the bank. Tyrese is emerging as one of the best players in the league, and is one of the youngest players in the top 25 of the list with near limitless potential to his upside.

However, an argument could be made that 21 is far too low for the newest player in the NBA elite. Players like Donovan Mitchell and Pascal Siakam are only debatably better than Haliburton. Our guess is that if you give Tyrese a few years, he will be creeping up into the top 10 of this list.

Some will argue he is too high, citing players like James Harden and Karl Anthony Towns that trail him on the list. While we may be a bit biased, the upside of Haliburton today along with the already incredible play and youth make this feel like a good landing spot for Tyrese.
