Every NBA Team's Most Exciting Prospect

The NBA is full of superstars that we have loved for years who are currently dominating the league. But what will happen in a few years when these players start to wear down and can't be the face of the NBA anymore? Young prospects are the future of the NBA, and pretty soon a lot of these guys will be the new LeBrons, Currys, and Durants of the league.

Young players are very exciting to each NBA franchise. They give bad teams hope that things will be better in the upcoming seasons and good teams the peace of mind that they will have a positive future without their current stars. The term "prospect" is very broad, so I am choosing players who have not yet established themselves in the NBA. Rookies are ideal but 2nd or 3rd year players that are still proving themselves are just as much of a prospect to their respective teams. The players should be younger then 24 or 25 to meet the criteria of this list.

We will be watching these players develop into NBA superstars very soon and at the end of some of these players careers, we could find them in the Hall of Fame. The next generation of stars are here, only time will tell which of these names will become these stars. This is every team's most exciting prospect.

1 Washington Wizards - Otto Porter Jr.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Otto Porter may have been a disappointment for the Wizards before, but he is now starting to come into his own. He is averaging 11.5 ppg and 1.5 spg. The Wizards have one of the best backcourts in the league with Beal and Wall, and Otto is a great addition at the SF position. The Wizards have a bright future ahead. It's hard to believe they've taken such a step back after looking like one of the more promising teams just last year.
