15. Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder’s bench unit is average right now. However, Isaiah Joe, Cason Wallace, and Jaylin Williams are all solid young players. Wallace can continue to develop and be a perennial Sixth Man of the Year with his solid defense.
14. Sacramento Kings
Kevin Huerter and Harrison Barnes are great bench options for the Sacramento Kings. However, necessary bench pieces like Keon Ellis and Chris Duarte are struggling.
13. Portland Trail Blazers
The Portland Trail Blazers bench unit is very underrated. Scoot Henderson and Duop Reath are their anchors. Skylar Mays is also a fine young player, and Matisse Thybulle plays elite defense.
12. Detroit Pistons
The Detroit Pistons bench is solid. The Pistons bench is the fourth-highest-scoring unit in the league. However, they only have a net rating of 0.6 because they have not been good defensively.
11. Dallas Mavericks
The Dallas Mavericks bench is very similar to the Pistons and ranks fifth in bench scoring. Seth Curry has not been the same player we have seen for much of his career, while Dante Exum is proving he does not belong back in the NBA.
