How will your team perform over the next three NBA seasons?

The Future Power Rankings are ESPN's projection of the on-court success expected for each team over the next three seasons: 2021-22, 2022-23 and 2023-24.

Consider this a convenient way to see the direction in which your favorite team is headed. To determine the Future Power Rankings, we asked ESPN analysts Kevin Pelton, Bobby Marks, Andre' Snellings and Tim Bontemps to rate teams in five categories and rank them relative to the rest of the league.

Since the last version of the Future Power Rankings dropped in October, we've played nearly an entire regular season, with some surprising teams emerging as contenders to take home a title in 2022.

For an explanation of each category and a full view of how each team did in each category, click here. Each team also received an overall Future Power Rating of 0 to 100, based on how well we expect it to perform over the next three seasons. Here are our latest rankings.
