By Fantasy staff | ESPN.com

The fantasy basketball staff will be covering the NBA offseason through to the launch of the fantasy basketball draft kit in September. This year, for the first time, you will be able to play fantasy basketball for free on ESPN.com.

These rankings are for fantasy basketball purposes and assume a 10-team league with standard scoring categories: points, rebounds, assists, 3-pointers, steals, blocks, field-goal percentage and free-throw percentage. Rankers submitted their lists on the night of the NBA draft, and were asked to provide their top 60 only.
