Where does Gortat rank among NBA Centers?

After tonight's game, I was pondering this question and even started a topic about it in the game thread. Where does Marcin Gortat rank among NBA centers? Currently, he has a PER Ratings (Player Efficiency Rating) of 17.72 which places him 10th in league, in front of such centers as Emeka Okafor, Marc Gasol, Andrew Bogut, and David Lee. A rebound rate (or rebound percentage) The Hammer currently sits 11th among qualified centers at 17.7, which puts him ahead rebounding greats Ben Wallace (17.2, ranked 13th), David Lee (15.3, ranked 30th), Al Jefferson (16.0, ranked 24th), Roy Hibbert (15.2, ranked 31st) and Nene (14.0, ranked 36). Gortat also ranks 11th in true shooting percentage and 13th in value added despite the fact he only has a usage rate of 11.3  which is ranked 46th of 50 NBA centers....Basically, he's awesome. 

 

On a side note, Channing Frye ranks last among qualified center with an 11.9 rebounding rate, and Robin Lopez is five spots ahead of him at 12.4 

 

So, now here comes the fun part where all of you rank who you consider to be the game's top centers and where our Polish hero ranks on that list. Keep in mind age, injury, and current contract status. Also, I ask you limit the list to players who are listed as NBA Centers as their primary position or are listed in John Hollinger's Center List.
