2. Luke Kornet

Now we're talking. Luke Kornet has been a truly excellent role player for the Boston Celtics on this run to what feels like a championship, stepping off the bench whenever Kristaps Porzingis has been missing through injury to outperform his role.

Perhaps the biggest compliment you could give Kornet is that his minutes during the regular season (15.3, seven starts in 63 appearances) didn't even dip that much during the playoffs to this point (11 minutes each night). Some of that is down to Porzingis missing time, but it is clear head coach Joe Mazzulla trusts the 28-year-old.

Kornet is an unrestricted free agent this summer, and it is possible that another team with more cap space could throw more money and some career stability his way. It is also possible that the Celtics bring him back - he may have played a small role this season - but he appears a popular figure with fans who certainly doesn't make the group that much worse when he is out there.

But if the Celtics somehow slip up from this position and Kornet's involvement in getting them to this point flies under the radar, the Suns could profit. He's underrated given his frame at sticking to bigger and stronger players - and while he's by no means elite in that area - he'd be an immediate upgrade over Eubanks. One for the Suns to go after hard this offseason.
