NBA Rookie Rankings

The following is a list of the top 100 NBA rookies for the 2012-13 season.  This list is not limited to 2012 draftees, but it includes top draftees from past years who have not played a game in the NBA.  The focus of this ranking is on their fantasy impact, so their ability to crack a lineup or feed off of quality players is considered.

1) :NOR: F Anthony Davis - Should be an elite defender in the NBA with his tremendous rebounding and blocking potential. Probably will take a few years to be groomed into being a high scoring big man.
2) :CHA: F Michael Kidd-Gilchrist -
3) :WAS-NBA: G Bradley Beal - Some question his ability to be a legit scorer since he wasn't a good shooter at Florida. He'll have to improve his shooting if he is going to succeed at the next level.
4) :SAC: F Thomas Robinson - Will live on the boards and get 8+ rebounds per game.
5) :GS: F Harrison Barnes -
6) :DET-NBA: C Andre Drummond - going to be a top 5 guy, top 10 at worst, but we have some serious reservations about him being able to assert his will at the next level.  There is a real learning curve for him to adjust.
7) :NOR: G Austin Rivers - Great scoring potential. Barring in injuries, he could be a legit 20+ PPG guy in a few years
8) :TOR-NBA: C Jonas Valančiūnas - Lithuanian product, drafted 5th overall in 2011 is still a rookie… Great rebounding and blocking potential.
9) :PHX: G Kendall Marshall - Has the potential to be a great assist guy in the NBA. Will have to be behind Dragic in Phoenix first though.
10) :HOU-NBA: G Jeremy Lamb -
11) :PHI-NBA: F Moe Harkless - a work in progress, but should be shooting up the prospect list because of his raw talent.  It may take 2-3 seasons to groom him, but he has some serious talent.
12) :POR: G Damian Lillard -
13) :BOS-NBA: F Jared Sullinger - Back injuries could derail his career before too long. But if he can find a way to stay healthy and overcome the back issues, should be a steal for Boston.
14) :TOR-NBA: G Terrence Ross -
15) :CLE-NBA: G Dion Waiters -
16) :OKC: F Perry Jones III - has the potential to be a perennial all-star and is undervalued in my book.  He has the reputation of not working hard enough, but I think is because he makes it look easy and with his supporting cast has not had to put up monster numbers.
17) :MIL-NBA: F John Henson -
18) :MIA-NBA: F Arnett Moultrie -
19) :POR: C Meyers Leonard - Plenty of raw talent and size here (7-1)
20) :DAL-NBA: C Tyler Zeller -
21) :HOU-NBA: F Terrence Jones -
22) :HOU-NBA: F Royce White -
23) :ORL: F Andrew Nicholson - Highest drafted player not born in USA (Canada) in 2012
24) :CHI-NBA: G Marquis Teague -
25) :ATL-NBA: G John Jenkins -

27) :DEN-NBA: F Quincy Miller -
28) :GS: F Draymond Green -
29) :MIL-NBA: G Doron Lamb -
30) :MEM: G Tony Wroten -

33) :CHA: F Jeffery Taylor - Sweden product has some potential and plenty of opportunity in Charlotte
34) :BOS-NBA: C Fab Melo - Brazilian born Melo lands in Beantown where he can learn from greats and hopefully fill their shoes years to come
35) :CLE-NBA: G Jared Cunningham - Cleveland is putting together a team deep in young talent
36) :DEN-NBA: G Evan Fournier - Frenchmen Fournier has some work to do
37) :WAS-NBA: G Tomas Satoransky - Spanish ball experience could give this Czech an edge with plethora of guards in D.C.
38) :CLE-NBA: F Kevin Jones -
39) :MIN-NBA: G William Buford - Undrafted, but considered top 40 prospect
40) :DET-NBA: F Khris Middleton -
41) :DET-NBA: F Kyle Singler - After a year in Europe, what are the expectations for the Duke standout?

  • Leatherhelmets: Seems like 4 games would have bene more in line with past NFL sanctions
    Today at 12:24:52 PM
  • Brent: Don't have a made up pay for performance program or your team will get the death sentence, but you can rape as many women as you want (Rapelisberger) and knock out women left and right (Rice).
    Today at 12:24:52 PM
  • Jake: there's nothing to prove, there's a video.  He knocked her out.
    Today at 12:26:38 PM
  • sandman: Well said bro
    Today at 12:26:39 PM
  • Jake: then dragged her around.  Visual evidence.  Seriously, there's nothing else to show....
    Today at 12:27:22 PM
  • Brent: It all depends on what team you play for.
    Today at 12:27:55 PM
  • Jake: Pisses me off more that she didn't do a Smoking Gun thing about it, just let him buy her a bunch of crap, I'm sure.
    Today at 12:28:05 PM
  • Brent: Hernadez had been getting away with murder while with the Pats until some stuff really came out and it stuck.  Dude was a straight up ganster playing in the NFL killing people almost yearly.
    Today at 12:28:49 PM
  • Brent: well, yeah, he's her ticket to being rich.
    Today at 12:29:16 PM
  • sandman: Brent that wasn't the Pats fault tho... Lack of Local Law enforcement
    Today at 12:30:04 PM
  • Brent: Yeah, I know.  Just saying he was a gangster playing in the NFL.  The Pats got away with probably one of the worst cheating scandals in the history of sports, covered up by Goodell.
    Today at 12:31:18 PM
  • Jake: did those text message transcripts come out between him and Belichick?
    Today at 12:33:18 PM
  • Brent: Goodell had Bellicheat destroy everything after he reviewed it as it would've been too damaging to the NFL.
    Today at 12:34:22 PM
  • Brent: No evidence, no crime.
    Today at 12:34:41 PM
  • 9inches: Ravens employed a murderer for over a dozen years... And he'll be on the NFL's hall of fame.
    Today at 12:35:38 PM
  • Brent: Yes they did.  You can kill people, you just have to do a lot of good stuff after it.
    Today at 12:39:34 PM
  • Jake: regardless, there will be a good public fallout from Rice getting two games.
    Today at 12:43:55 PM
  • Jake: media nowadays can cripple a person, and there's plenty of media outside the NFL.
    Today at 12:45:19 PM
  • Jake: Nancy Grace will be on this like a fat kid on cake.
    Today at 12:47:38 PM
  • Ace: [link]
    Today at 12:50:17 PM
  • Ace: for anyone wondering about the faux outrage concerning head to head hits which seemingly came out of nowhere
    Today at 12:51:08 PM
  • Brent: Yep, and that lawsuit is the only reason Goodell gave the Saints the death sentence.  Well that and SP told Goodell to GFM when he tried to get involved in the team's investigation with the vicoden situation.
    Today at 12:53:44 PM
  • Ace: nfl lawyers=doing their job, goodell=doing his job really well as seen by his pay packet... the joys of capitalism
    Today at 12:56:30 PM
  • Leatherhelmets: The illegal behaviors of these pro/college athletes in part stems from when they were in junior high, "made special" had special priveleges, not held accountable, and this only got reinforced as they went through HS, College
    Today at 01:07:22 PM
  • -BA-: So who in NCAA Champions is responsible for watching for illegal bids?
    Today at 01:09:14 PM
  • -BA-: a tall challenge I know with so many players out there
    Today at 01:09:31 PM
  • Leatherhelmets: Would like to see the league site uses for recruiting as FT has some new features in place
    Today at 01:11:17 PM
  • -BA-: There is at least 1 team that has more money in winning bids than money available
    Today at 01:11:49 PM
  • Leatherhelmets: How about a Google spreadsheet where team accounts could be easily tracked/updated, published
    Today at 01:14:21 PM
  • Ace: who dat?

    Today at 02:25:27 PM
