Rudy Gobert Current Rank – #11 among all centers   Position C | 7' 1", 245 lbs | Utah Jazz Born Jun 26, 1992 in France Drafted 2013: 1st Rnd, 27th by DEN College: None Experience: 2 years GFR Analysis Keith Rivas -  Of the teams in the Western Conference that I see having a potential breakout year, the Utah Jazz are flying high on my radar. Rudy Gobert is one of the biggest reasons for that because, as a major down low presence, Gobert stepping up just a little more might be what puts the Jazz in the playoff conversation. Albeit, the team will need to improve to have that mean anything -- but that doesn't...

Nikola Vucevic Current Rank – #12 among all centers   7' 0", 260 lbs | Orlando Magic Born: Oct 24, 1990 in Switzerland Drafted 2011: 1st Rnd, 16th by PHI College: USC Experience: 4 years GFR Analysis Ben Buchanan - Nikola Vucevic, the fringe All-Star put up BIG numbers this season. The 24 year old, standing at 7'0 averaged 19.3 ppg and 11 rpg. Vucevic will grow into a better player with the young Magic team, and if he progresses right, he could be one of the most dominant centers in the NBA. Keith Rivas - Similar to the case with the Detroit Pistons, the Orlando Magic are in need of a miracle to be in...

Roy Hibbert Current Rank – #13 among all centers   Position C | 7' 2", 270 lbs | Los Angeles Lakers Born: Dec 11, 1986 in Queens, NY (Age: 28) Drafted 2008: 1st Rnd, 17th by TOR College: Georgetown Experience: 7 years GFR Analysis Jr. Williams - Roy Hibbert showed signs of being a superior center during his tenure with the Indiana Pacers, more notably during their Eastern Conference playoffs run , but after Paul George missed most of the 2014-15 season, Hibbert didn't exactly pick up the slack as he averaged only 10 ppg and 7.1 rpg -- numbers that didn't exactly improve during his seven seasons with the Pacers....

Andrew Bogut Current Rank – #14 among all centers   Position C | 7' 0", 260 lbs | Golden State Warriors Born: Nov 28, 1984 in Australia Drafted 2005: 1st Rnd, 1st by MIL College: Utah Experience: 10 years GFR Analysis Ben Buchanan - Bogut was a key cog in the Warriors magical regular season. Although he wasn't as much of a factor in the post-season run, he'll still be a large part of the Warriors moving forward. The 7 foot Aussie is one of the best defenders in the entire NBA. He locks down the paint on a night to night basis. Bogut should be back in the starting lineup for the Warriors next year contributing...

Marcin Gortat Current Rank – #15 among all centers Position C | 6' 11", 240 lbs | Washington Wizards Born: Feb 17, 1984 in Poland Drafted 2005: 2nd Rnd, 57th by PHX College: None Experience: 8 years GFR Analysis Ben Buchanan - Gortat is a consistent player. You know what you're getting from him, he'll give you a consistent 13/9. Gortat isn't quite a "go-to" player, but he's very solid; he's got a decent post game and can score. He's also a very good rebounder, and a defensive presence. Overall Gortat is a very solid player, the type of guy you want on your team. Jr. Williams - I used to think Gortat was on his way...

Jonas Valanciunas Current Rank – #16 among all centers   Position C | 7' 0", 255 lbs | Toronto Raptors Born: May 6, 1992 in Lithuania Drafted 2011: 1st Rnd, 5th by TOR College: None Experience: 3 years GFR Analysis Keith Rivas - If there's anything that the Toronto Raptors need heading into 2015 it's consistency. It's pretty evident that Kyle Lowry & Co. can't go very far in the playoffs -- if you don't understand, look at how badly they got swept by the Wizards -- if everyone isn't on the same page. Jonas Valanciunas has posted a decent 12 points and eight rebounds per contest and if he can keep his...

Hassan Whiteside Current Rank – #17 among all centers   Position C | 7' 0", 265 lbs | Miami Heat Born: Jun 13, 1989 in Gastonia, NC Drafted 2010: 2nd Rnd, 33rd by SAC College: Marshall Experience: 3 years GFR Analysis Ben Buchanan - Whiteside was a breakout star in the 2014 NBA season. Whiteside was a candidate for the leagues Most Improved player, he broke on to the scene with his Triple Double against the Chicago Bulls (14 points, 13 rebounds, 12 blocks). Whiteside broke onto the scene and is one of the best stories in the NBA. Whiteside is an elite rebounder and shot blocker, if he can keep up his high level...

Brook Lopez Current Rank – #18 among all centers Position C | 7' 0", 275 lbs | Brooklyn Nets Born: Apr 1, 1988 in North Hollywood, CA Drafted 2008: 1st Rnd, 10th by NJ College: Stanford Experience: 7 years GFR Analysis Ben Buchanan - Brook Lopez has always been one of the most talented players in the NBA, but he can never seem to stay healthy (5 games in 11', 70 in 12', 17 in 13'). He's also not a top tier rebounder (7.1 RPG in career). Offensively, he's a fource though. Lopez can easily average 20 PPG when healthy, he can lead a team and be a top tier center, lots of "ifs" though. He must stay healthy and work on his...

Mason Plumlee Current Rank – #19 among all centers Position C/PF | 6' 11", 235 lbs | Portland Trail Blazers Born: Mar 5, 1990 in Fort Wayne, IN Drafted 2013: 1st Rnd, 22nd by BKN College: Duke Experience: 2 years GFR Analysis Ben Buchanan - Mason Plumlee was traded just a couple months ago during the 2015 NBA draft.  Portland acquired him to come in and man the middle at Center. Plumlee puts up very modest stats (8.7 PPG, 7.2 RPG) but at 25 there's still plenty of room to grow. Portland is almost the perfect landing spot for Plumlee as there is no pressure to win now. He can develop with the young Trailblazers. Jr....

Timofey Mozgov Current Rank - #20 among all centers   Position - C | 7' 1", 250 lbs | Cleveland Cavaliers Born: Jul 16, 1986 College: None Experience: 5 years G.F.R. Analysis Sau A - Mozgov is a young, talented big man that showed flashes in the playoffs due to the injuries the Cavs encountered. If he can continue to develop and become more consistent he will move up on this list. Jr. Williams - After 4 shaky seasons in the league Timofey Mozgov has finally solidified himself as a top skilled center in the NBA. His performance during  the 2015 NBA playoffs helped strengthen his position as one of the top players...
