The NBA preseason is already underway, which means the regular season is just a couple weeks away. Opening night is set for Oct. 19, when the Milwaukee Bucks host the Brooklyn Nets before the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers do battle in the nightcap. 

While we look into every team ahead of the 2021-22 season — catch up on all of our team previews here — naturally, we need to forecast the players, too. So here it is: Our CBS Sports Top 100 player rankings for the 2021-22 season. Taking the cumulative results of our seven writers’ individual rankings, this is a look ahead to how these players are expected to perform in the upcoming season. It is not based on last year’s production.

This means rookies are eligible, and indeed No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham made our top 100. In fact, he cracked our top 75. With that in mind, let’s get to the list (go easy on the feedback).

100-91

90-81

80-71 

70-61

60-51

50-41

40-31

30-21

20-11

10-1
