Average NBA Player Weight (by Position, Team, Year)

The average weight of all current NBA players is approximately 215.39 lbs (i.e. 97.7 kg).

The average weight of NBA players has increased significantly since the league’s inaugural season in 1947 (i.e. approximately 188 pounds / 85 kg), but has stayed in the same range since the mid-late 1990s (i.e. 215-220 pounds / 98-100 kg).

Interestingly, the average NBA player weight has slightly decreased since its peak in 2010-2011 (i.e. 223 pounds / 101 kg). Around this time, more teams began focusing on 3-point shooting, and faster paced offences. This resulted in teams having more guards / wing players instead of bigger (and heavier) centers / post players.

Average NBA Player Weight by Year (1947-2024)

The above chart shows how the average NBA player weight has changed over the years (1947-2023).

Since its inception in 1947 (as the “BAA“), the NBA player weight has grown around 14% from around 188 lbs (85.7kg) to over 215 lbs (97.8kg).

Compare this to the average height, which grew about 5% over the same time.

The increase in weight can be related to height (i.e. taller players are heavier), as well as training and nutrition. Players are much stronger, and better physically trained than before (i.e. muscles weigh more).

Interestingly, the average weight has dipped since its peak in the early 2010s.

This coincides with the general shift towards more 3-point shooting and faster paced offences of today’s NBA. Thanks to the dominance of Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors, teams started looking for more 3-point shooters, and versatile forwards instead of big (and heavy) centers.
