Every year, at the conclusion of the NBA season, there is an award for the Most Improved player in the league. The award can be misleading at times, as many players that have won the award weren’t necessarily the most improved, but in many cases received more playing time and therefore produced more. This past season Goran Dragic won the award, deserving so. Dragic was without a doubt a much better player than his previous two years, as he averaged 20.3 points and 5.9 assists on 51% field goals and 41% threes.

Dragic improved significantly from the field, he shot 44% field goals and 32% threes two years ago. His scoring rose about six points from two years ago, but assists dipped from 7.4 to 5.9. With that said, here is a list of players that can go from average to good or from good to excellent basketball players in the upcoming season. This list is based on improvement, not players that will do more just cause they play more.
