Dunkest Draft Mode, Players to Avoid

Let’s take a look at the 6 players who could disappoint your expectations in the NBA Regular Season, considering the Dunkest Fantasy Basketball Draft perspective


Here are the names of 6 big players who could experience a significant drop in performance during the NBA 2023/2024 Regular Season.


Rudy Gobert (Minnesota Timberwolves)

The Frenchman was one of the biggest disappointments in terms of Dunkest in the last season. He failed to prove himself as a game-changer, even during the World Cup. The Timberwolves might find a better balance by entrusting more offensive responsibilities to their true stars: Edwards and Towns.

Jonas Valanciunas (New Orleans Pelicans)

The Lithuanian center’s numbers declined slightly in the previous season, and it’s unlikely that he’ll improve his offensive production with Zion’s return. He’s entering the twilight of his career, and it’s better to look at other names for the starting center slot.


Kawhi Leonard (Los Angeles Clippers)

All the rumors suggest he’s fully recovered, but doubts about his physical condition persist. Since his time with the Toronto Raptors, he hasn’t played more than 60 games in a regular season, and relying on him as the team’s star is genuinely risky.

Kristaps Porzingis (Boston Celtics)

A similar story applies to Porzingis, who was sent to Boston via trade in the summer. The fact that he couldn’t participate in the World Cup expedition due to a physical issue is evidence of his injury-prone nature. Even though he could turn out to be a good player for the Celtics’ system, from a Fantasy Basketball perspective, it’s better to look elsewhere.


James Harden (Philadelphia 76ers)

In his recent experiences, wherever he has gone, he has encountered challenges. His impact, while positive in terms of assists, fell short of expectations. His future is still uncertain, and if you’re conducting your draft before any potential trade, there’s a high risk of ending up with a player who lacks motivation on your team.

Bradley Beal (Phoenix Suns)

The University of Florida product has long awaited a trade, and it has finally happened. It remains to be seen how he will coexist with players like Booker and KD, but his offensive impact could significantly diminish if used as a playmaker. It’s better to consider other options.
