Predicting Every Warriors Player’s Rating In NBA 2K23

Predicting Every Warriors Player’s Rating In NBA 2K23

The Golden State Warriors should likely be a top team to play with heading into next season. The Warriors are the 2022 champions and have the Finals MVP on their squad, projected to have one of the highest ratings among all NBA players. That is not all either. The team has three All-Star-worthy players combined with three young up-and-coming players that could have a solid rating as well.

There is no debate about whether or not to choose the Warriors as a team to play with a dynasty. For inexperienced gamers, the Warriors would be the team to give to the newbies. As far as looking at each player, that is another discussion. There should be some players with improved ratings going into next season. We will take a look at that right now.

These are the predicted ratings for each player on the Warriors roster.

Trevion Williams - 67

2022 Rating: None

Williams played out his four-year career at Purdue. His junior year saw him named to the First-Team All-Big Ten squad after he averaged 15.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.3 assists. He declared for the NBA Draft but then returned to play out his senior year. As a senior, he came off of the bench and was named the Big Ten Sixth Man of the Year, as well as Third-Team All-Big Ten after averaging 12.0 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. Williams went undrafted in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Mac McClung - 67

2022 Rating: 67

After going undrafted in 2021, he joined the Lakers but was waived on October 13. He was then assigned to the team’s G-League affiliate in South Bay but would sign a 10-day contract with the Bulls. The South Bay Lakers would reacquire McClung, and he would win G-League Rookie of the Year. However, the Lakers declined his qualifying offer, and he would become a restricted free agent. In two NBA games, McClung averaged 4.0 points and 1.5 rebounds.

Lester Quinones - 67

2022 Rating: None

Quinones will be a familiar face to one teammate of his. At Memphis, Quinones played alongside former No. 2 overall pick James Wiseman. When Wiseman sat out due to eligibility issues, Quinones played significant minutes. At the end of the 2019-20 season, he was named to the AAC All-Freshman Team. In his sophomore year, he averaged 9.5 points and 5.8 rebounds. Last season, he finished with 10.0 points per game while shooting 39.0% from three-point range. He went undrafted in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Gui Santos - 68

2022 Rating: None

Santos was the second-round pick of the Warriors, taken at No. 55 overall. Before starting his NBA career, he played with Minas of the Novo Basquete Brasil. Last year, he was named the NBB Sixth Man of the Year after he averaged 10.1 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. He could receive an extra point on his rating for his draft status and his former professional experience.

Ryan Rollins - 68

2022 Rating: None

Rollins was drafted with the No. 44 overall pick in the second round of the draft. He played at Toledo, where he was a First-Team All-MAC player. Rollins helped Toledo repeat as MAC regular season champions. He averaged 18.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.7 steals, and shot 46.8% from the field.

Patrick Baldwin Jr. - 70

2022 Rating: None

In high school, Baldwin was a McDonald’s All-American and committed to play at Milwaukee to play for his father instead of the likes of Duke and Georgetown. In college, he suffered a leg injury that limited him to 11 games. In total, he averaged 12.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game. The Warrior would use the No. 28 overall pick in the first round of the 2022 NBA Draft to draft Baldwin.

James Wiseman - 73

James Wiseman

2022 Rating: 77

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft was once seen as a future trade asset, but it’s been hard to keep him on the court. During the 2020-21 season, he averaged 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds per game but played in only 39 contests. His season was ruled out in April when he underwent surgery for a torn meniscus. Last year, he suffered a setback during his recovery and missed all of the season. He has been participating in Summer League, but with the return of Kevon Looney and his year's absence, it’s hard to see his rating not go down.

Moses Moody - 74

Moses Moody

2022 Rating: 73

Moody took a step in the right direction for his development. Moody was the No. 14 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Last year, he averaged 4.4 points and 1.5 rebounds in 11.7 minutes per game. Moody will likely be used as a role player this season. That was going to be his role going into last season, and he performed well, so he could see a one-point increase.

JaMychal Green - 76

JaMychal Green

2022 Rating: 77

During the 2020-21 season, Green averaged 8.1 points and 4.8 rebounds in 19.3 minutes of action. Last year, there was a dip in his production, where he averaged 6.4 points and 4.2 rebounds in 16.2 minutes per game. This was the third year in a row that Green’s minutes decreased, and he moved to a team where he is going to be behind Jonathan Kuminga on the depth chart.

Kevon Looney - 76

Kevon Looney

2022 Rating: 73

Looney was underrated last season. As the team’s starting center, he played productive minutes and averaged 6.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. That included shooting 57.1% from the field. With Wiseman out last season, Looney had to step up. He deserves a higher rating for his role in helping the team win last year. With Wiseman returning, it will be interesting to see how his playing time is affected.

Jonathan Kuminga - 77

Jonathan Kuminga

2022 Rating: 75

We are using Green as a template when it comes to Kuminga’s rating. Given that Green had a 77 rating coming off of his 2020-21 season, it appears that Kuminga could make the jump based on his season last year. Kuminga played out his rookie season after being drafted with the No. 7 overall pick in 2021, where he averaged 9.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, and shot 51.3% from the field in 70 games. He will be expected to play a similar role as the primary backup to Draymond Green.

Donte DiVincenzo - 78

Donte DiVencenzo

2022 Rating: 79

This was a low-key signing for the Warriors that could be great. In 17 games, DiVincenzo averaged 7.2 points and 3.5 rebounds. When he was acquired by the Kings, he averaged 10.3 points and 4.4 rebounds in 25 games. This was one year off averaging 37.9% from three-point shooting. DiVincenzo will have to take one year with a minus one rating, but with this offense, we could see him get back close to the 80s if he succeeds.

Jordan Poole - 80

Jordan Poole

2022 Rating: 76

There is plenty of reason to believe that Poole was swindled from Most Improved Player last season. Poole entered the season with a rating of 26 after averaging 12.0 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.9 assists. Last year, he took one of the biggest jumps of any player by averaging 18.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 4.0 assists. Poole should have done enough to make the 80s and should be a contender for Sixth Man of the Year this season.

Draymond Green - 83

Gilbert Arenas Criticized Draymond Green's Performances In The Playoffs For Not Delivering On The Defensive End: "I Don't Need You To Go Out There And Try To Score 20 When Your Role Is To Play Defense"

2022 Rating: 80

Green might have seen his rating improve by two had he played the majority of the season. He played in 46 games and averaged 7.5 points, 7.3 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.1 blocks per game. That is a typically strong season by Green, but his defense was back to being top-tier. Had Green played the full season, he might have won his second Defensive Player of the Year Award.

Andrew Wiggins - 84

Andrew Wiggins

2022 Rating: 80

After making his first All-Star appearance of his career, Wiggins should see one of the biggest jumps among players on the team. Wiggins averaged 17.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.7 blocks. He was a solid defender that also shot 39.3% from three-point range. Wiggins should be a mid-80s player this season. The game won't take into account what he did in the NBA Finals, but he was easily the team’s second-best player. We should expect big things from Wiggins this season in a contract year.

Klay Thompson - 89

Klay Thompson Shares Video Of Him Working Out This Offseason: "Feels Good Not Having To Rehab"

2022 Rating: 87

Thompson didn’t play two full seasons, and he was still rated 87. He played 32 games and averaged 20.4 points, and 3.9 rebounds, and shot 38.5% from three-point range. That should be enough for Thompson to be near 90, especially with what he was rated after playing zero games in two seasons. Thompson appears to be 100% healthy too. Overall, it’s going to probably be an All-Star season for him.

Stephen Curry - 97

Stephen Curry

2022 Rating: 96

Curry is playing like the best player in the world right now. At times, Curry could carry the Warriors back from a huge deficit to a close win. Curry averaged 25.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 38.0% from three-point range. He was the 2022 Finals MVP after leading the Warriors to their fourth championship since 2015. Curry will be rated a top-3 player in the NBA this season, if not the highest-rated player among all players.
