The Top 24 power forwards for the 2023-24 season

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

One of the reasons why the Los Angeles Lakers went from borderline playoff team to legit contender at the trade deadline was their addition of young forward Jarred Vanderbilt, a defensive specialist with great tools on that end of the floor, one who can finish around the basket very efficiently on offense, at that. Vanderbilt, already 24, won’t ever be a star – his lack of shooting and overall offensive skill will prevent that – but he can be a star in his role as a versatile, impactful defender who doesn’t try to do too much on offense.

Of course, that type of player – a non-shooting wing – can get played off the floor in the playoffs, as they allow opponents to hide their worst defender or even defend 5-on-4 but even then, Vanderbilt is the type to help teams win games thanks to his defensive expertise.

2022-23 stats: 7.9 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 2.4 apg, 1.1 spg, 54.8 FG% in 78 games
2023-24 salary: $4,698,000 (projected 251st overall in salary)
