NEW YORK (BVM) –  NBA teams always need players to step up to be successful during a season. These players may fly under the radar because they aren’t one of the main stars of the team but their contributions can mean the difference between a win and a loss. 

These players are also usually on teamfriendly contracts that allow for the big spending on other players on the roster. They also tend to be younger players that are playing on their first contract. That low salary cap hit makes those players’ contributions even more valuable as they play for a better contract in the future. 

Here is a list of the most underrated players in the NBA for the 2022-23 season based on their win share (calculation of wins attributed to a player) and their salary cap hit to the team they play for, according to data from US Betting Report.
