WSN’s Pick

Our Pick: Tyrese Maxey to Win NBA Most Improved Player (-1350 at FanDuel)

Tyrese Maxey is the odds-on favorite to win Most Improved Player this season. Already standing out as one of the league’s most capable scorers, Maxey went on to show his production could be sustained without star Joel Embiid in the lineup, only furthering his case for the award. Maxey stands out as the clear favorite to win Sixth Man of the Year as the regular season ends.

NBA Most Improved Player Predictions

Who Is the Favorite to Win the MIP NBA 2024?

(G) Tyrese Maxey - 6-2, 200 lb (188 cm, 90 kg) - Philadelphia 76ers (-1350 at FanDuel)


Since the season started, Tyrese Maxey has been the runaway favorite to win Most Improved Players. With James Harden out of the picture, he confidently took the point guard position and hasn’t looked back. Despite his team’s struggles without Embiid in the lineup, Maxey went on to solidify his campaign for Most Improved by continuing to perform at a high level. A top-six finish would have made his case for the award inarguable, but for now, Maxey will have to settle for the role of heavy favorite. A unanimous vote for Maxey as Most Improved Player wouldn’t be a surprise.

Who Are the Contenders to Win NBA Most Improved Player?

(G) Coby White - 6-5, 185lb (196 cm, 88 kg) - Chicago Bulls (+700 at FanDuel)


While the injury to Zach LaVine derailed the Chicago Bulls’ hopes this season, they received consolation in the emergence of Coby White. The fifth-year point guard continues to impress, doubling his points average while looking like a genuine long-term option for Chicago at point guard. His career turnaround is worth noting. He’s just outpaced in the production column compared to his favorite, Tyrese Maxey.

(G) Jalen Williams - 6-5, 195lb (196cm, 88kg) - Oklahoma City Thunder (+7500 at FanDuel)


After an excellent rookie campaign, Jalen Williams has only improved further. Bumping up his scoring average by five points while enhancing efficiency and playing fewer games, Williams has made every correct step this season. His Oklahoma City Thunder are competing for the top of the West, and without him, they wouldn’t be in the race. It’s unlikely he’ll catch up to Maxey. Still, with an MVP-worthy player in Gilgeous-Alexander leading the Thunder, Williams has been closest to looking at a second star in Oklahoma City. 

(F) Jonathan Kuminga - 6-8, 210lb (203cm, 95kg) - Golden State Warriors (+15000 at FanDuel)


Jonathan Kuminga has finally made the leap for the Golden State Warriors. As the season ends, Kuminga has solidified his place as one of the Warriors’ essential contributors and a cornerstone of their future. His production doesn’t quite match the level of the top contenders for the prize, but he’s sure to earn a few votes for the award.
