Deandre Ayton’s Rank Among Centers

The center position has gone through different transitions in NBA history. At one point it was thought that a team had no chance without a dominate center. Then as the game changed the center position became devalued. Now the case can be made that the center position is just as important as it has ever been. Where does Deandre Ayton rank among these important players?

  6. Brook Lopez – Milwaukee Bucks
  7. Nikola Vucevic – Chicago Bulls
  8. Rudy Gobert – Minnesota Timberwolves
  9. Nicolas Claxton – Brooklyn Nets
  10. Jarrett Allen – Cleveland Cavaliers

  12. Jonas Valanciunus – New Orleans Pelicans
  13. Deandre Ayton – Phoenix Suns
  14. Walker Kessler – Utah Jazz
  15. Robert Williams III – Boston Celtics

Victor Wembanyama is not ranked because he has not played in a NBA game yet. Karl Anthony-Towns is considered a power forward because he plays along side Rudy Gobert.

Ayton may be ranked 13th but has the talent to be a top five center in this league. If he improves on the defensive end of the floor to go along with his offensive skills. There is no reason why Ayton can’t be a top five center.
