For the first season, Sportando is ranking the top players in the Serie A. Who will be the best player this season?
We consider both the quality and the impact they can have in Italian Serie A.
30) Dairis Bertans, guard, Olimpia Milano
Silent killer. A system player that can take advantage of the individualities of Milano's roster.
The Latvian spent last season with Blatt's Darussafaka Dogus averaging 10 points per game in BSL and 6.4 points per game in EuroLeague.
29) Hamady Ndiaye, big man, Scandone Avellino
Not his best season in 2016-2017 but a perfect backup of Kyrylo Fesenko to keep physicality high under the rim.
Ndiaye has played 33 games in the NBA with Washington and Sacramento.
28) Dezmine Wells, guard, Scandone Avellino
First season at high level for Wells after his experiences in NBA D-League and Greece. A great scorer, he can be the key in Avellino's offense.
Wells has played with the Blue the previous two seasons averaging, in 2016-2017, 12.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2 assists. He has also played 9 games in Greece with Doxa Lefkadas averaging 16.8 points per contest.
27) Luca Vitali, playmaker, Leonessa Brescia
Some injuries in the previous seasons but one of the best assistmen in Serie A.
Last season he averaged 8.5 points, 7.1 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game.
26) Tyrus McGee, guard, Pistoia Basket
After the Serie A championship won in Venezia as sixth man, he moved to Pistoia to be the leader of the team.
McGee averaged 9.5 points per game last season with Reyer.
25) Marcus Slaughter, big man, Virtus Bologna
He landed in Bologna after a couple of tough seasons but he has talent and athletism to make the difference in the spaces created by Aradori and Gentile.
Slaughter won the EuroLeague with Real Madrid in 2015.
24) Milenko Tepic, forward, New Basket Brindisi
One of the reasons of Orlandina's huge season, a point forward for the new Brindisi of coach Dell'Agnello.
Last seasonTepic averaged 8.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3 assists in 27 games and 29 minutes on the court.
23) Marquez Haynes, combo guard, Reyer Venezia
Second season as point guard of Reyer Venezia. his accelerations and streaks when he's in his "zone" can change every game.
Last season he averaged 11.9 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 49 games and led Venezia to the "Scudetto".
22) Achille Polonara, forward, Dinamo Sassari
New experience, new team, will he finally step up to be a leader??
Polonara has played with Reggio Emilia the last three seasons. In 2016-2017 he averaged 10.2 points and 6.6 rebounds per contest shooting 37.2% from the arc.
21) Davide Pascolo, forward, Olimpia Milano
A difficult season, two additions in Milano's roster in hsi role but he will be able to have playing time due to his atypicalness and smartness under the rim.
In his first season in Milano, Pascolo averaged 8.4 points per game shooting 63.1% from two and 41.7% from long range in less than 18 minutes per game.
