NBA Future Power Rankings: Predicting best, worst franchises

Illustration by ESPN

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 Future Power Rankings dropped in May, we've gone through an entire postseason with the Milwaukee Bucks emerging as champions. We've also had dramatic turnover on the sidelines with seven teams hiring new head coaches, affecting their management scores.

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.
