I wouldn't cry about Smith but I think his shot is questionable and is a bit too ball dominant. Ntilikina's shot is also questionable and he's so much of an unknown.

Embiid ranked 4th and Simmons 10th on ESPN's top 25 under 25 list

Embiid is the biggest challenger to Towns for "best center" in future seasons. He is every bit the scorer Towns is and has similar versatility and ball skills. He is also a better shooter (36.7 percent from 3 this year vs. 33.7 percent for Towns) and shot blocker (more than doubles Towns' block rate).
In time he'll have no excuse to not be an elite rebounder as well, thanks to his size and agility. As with Towns, his efficiency will spike as more experienced (and talented) players surround him. -- Thorpe

Simmons has the speed and quickness of Jason Kidd in his prime, but in a much taller frame. His overall playmaking skills project to be elite, too, which means that he can be a team's primary creator.
Thanks to his size and athleticism, coaches should expect him to be an all-league defensive player. If ever he learns to shoot, Simmons has MVP potential. If not, he is still a core player on a potentially great team. -- Thorpe

Only two teammates and "rookies" in the top 10. Ben is the youngest in the top 10.
Two days later I get a text back that says I'm a basketball player and a businessman, not a Thundercat.
