Wilt Chamberlain led the league in assists as a center. He averaged 4.4 APG during his career.
Bill Russell often started and orchestrated the offense especially after the retirement of Bob Cousy. He averaged 4.3 APG during his career.
Wes Unseld would often grab a rebound and use it to start an outlet pass to his teammates. He averaged 3.9 APG for his career.
Dave Cowens was a phenomenal passer out of the post. He averaged 3.8 APG for his career.
Bill Walton’s passes made him the most talented passing center in the game after Wilt’s retirement. He averaged 3.4 APG for his career.
Arvydas Sabonis was known as one hell of a passer for his size, but it’s a shame we didn’t see too much of his best passes in the NBA. He averaged 2.1 APG for his career (but this is because he came into the league late).
Alvan Adams was a fantastic passing center and unfortunately rather forgotten. He averaged 4.1 APG for his career.
Sam Lacey was another great passing center that is forgotten. He averaged 3.7 APG for his career.
Brad Daughtery was another great passing center that gets forgotten sometimes. He averaged 3.7 APG for his career.
and Jokic of course the best passing big men of the modern era he reminds me of a combination of Walton and Sabonis which is to say he’s a fantastic passer for his size and just in general
Chris Webber was a phenomenal passing PF. He averaged 4.2 APG for his career.
So was Kevin Garnett. He averaged 3.7 APG for his career.
Charles Barkley was a tremendous passer too, and would often bring the ball up the court. He averaged 3.9 APG for his career.
healthy Blake Griffin’s passing was a beautiful thing to watch as well. He averages 4.1 APG for his career.
Giannis’ passing skills definitely command respect as he can definitely bring the ball up and orchestrate the offense. He averages 4.6 APG for his career.
Connie Hawkins is an often forgotten about player but he had superb court vision whether he played SF, PF or C. He averaged 4.1 APG for his career.
Billy Cunningham whether he was playing SF or PF could certainly pass like a guard as well. he averaged 4.3 APG for his career.
George McGinnis was the prototype Lebron he would run the ball up the court as a PF and orchestrate the team’s offense. He averaged 3.7 APG for his career.
Larry Bird was one of the greatest passing forwards ever, and yes he also counts as a PF (he played PF early in his career) as well as a big man. He averages 6.3 APG for his career.
and of course Lebron James who can play PF and counts surely as a big man. He averages 7.4 APG for his career dwarfing everyone except for Jokic and Bird on this list in that stat.
