10. The Hernagomez Brothers
Juancho and Willy Hernagomez are Spanish basketball players who both play in the NBA. They are one of two siblings from Spain who are in our list as the top 10 basketball players in the NBA.
The older one was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers as the 35th overall pick in 2015. The Phila traded him to the Knicks in the draft night trade. He is currently in his eighth NBA season and currently plays for the New Orleans Pelicans.
The 28-year-old was selected to the NBA All-Rookie First Team in 2017. He has been an influential player since he joined the Pelicans in 2020. He scored his career-high 9.1 points per game with the Pelicans last season.
A representative of the Spanish National side, the NBA Center won a bronze in the 2016 Olympic games in Rio De Janeiro.

Despite the early expectations, Juancho's rookie season wasn't up to the mark. He spent four average seasons with the Nuggets and joined the Minnesota Vikings in 2020 mid-season. The power forward started all 14 games with the Vikings that season recording his career-high 12.9 points per game.
