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?

    Today at 05:05:34 PM
  • Scalious: Trade posted. Confirm here mike [link]
    Today at 05:22:04 PM
  • mike0542: If I need to pick, scalious, you want to tell me who you want so i can put it through to keep the draft moving?
    Today at 05:27:42 PM
  • Scalious: When can i make the pick? After COL confirms? or.. until 3 people pass it?
    Today at 05:28:21 PM
  • mike0542: Well i just confirmed, but idk how long it takes to process
    Today at 05:28:56 PM
  • Jpsprague10: Trade needs to pass
    Today at 05:30:11 PM
  • Scalious: Derek Hill. That is my pick. So you can make it if you want
    Today at 05:30:28 PM
  • Scalious: COL
    Today at 05:30:45 PM
  • Scalious: Fair enough JP.. so then VOTE!
    Today at 05:31:32 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I'm looking at it, at 1st glance, it is pretty ugly. Not sure Mike understands the value of  that pick. Players available in that spot wouldn't be had for bench players. Not prepared to vote either way yet.
    Today at 05:34:38 PM
  • Jpsprague10: On the flipside not sure its grandiose enough to worry about it.
    Today at 05:35:39 PM
  • Scalious: Cool either way JP. Just didn't want to hold up the draft
    Today at 05:35:40 PM
  • sandman: Smoking Gun bro, Ive been begging to get picks and you don't even give me a shot
    Today at 05:35:54 PM
  • Scalious: Mike made the pick.. so on that end we are good to go. :CLE: OTC
    Today at 05:36:17 PM
  • Eric: Wow JoE Maddon opted out
    Today at 05:37:51 PM
  • Eric: 80 here in Colorado, little breeze
    Today at 05:38:43 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I'll vote later tonight Scals, i think you know i'll look at all sides and offer fair evaluation.
    Today at 05:39:33 PM
  • Scalious: No problem.
    Today at 05:45:49 PM
  • chrisetc21: Joe Maddon opted out and the Rays were never heard from again
    Today at 05:53:26 PM
  • chrisetc21: Not that anyone in Tampa would notice or care
    Today at 05:53:45 PM
  • Eric: :rofl:
    Today at 05:54:07 PM
  • indiansnation: im hearing he might go to lad
    Today at 05:55:18 PM
  • Gilly: hahaha I love this, respect being taught!
    Today at 06:00:11 PM
  • Jpsprague10: Approve Scals, i think you'll agree with most of it, that's why you did the deal.
    Today at 06:01:15 PM
  • Scalious: I do..except I suspect you don't so highly of Hill
    Today at 06:02:37 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I think he's solid value, his defense should get him to the show. Bat is going to need some work and has some overall growing to do. Defense could make him a starter someday or a solid 4th/5th OF. Just needs reps right now.
    Today at 06:07:58 PM
  • Gilly: oh oh is there a trade in question
    Today at 06:09:04 PM
  • Scalious: Yeah.. I look at him as a project player. I agree in this spot in the draft you can get some real high upside guys
    Today at 06:09:44 PM
  • Scalious: I was actually hoping for Gatewood. Would I be correct in you don't pass this trade if it was Gatewood?
    Today at 06:10:25 PM
  • Jpsprague10: If I don't know the pick at all, i would have had to of thought a lot longer.
    Today at 06:12:01 PM
  • Corey: Looks like it Gills. Noone must like the Houston and KC trade noone is voting lol
    Today at 06:12:28 PM
  • Jpsprague10: But, you see the dilema, Rivera& Flaherty doesn't land you Gatewood in this league.
    Today at 06:13:18 PM
  • Scalious: and Rivera had the highest WAR on the Padres..I'm not sure how Alonso fits back in..but I don't view him as a bench bat..
    Today at 06:13:29 PM
  • Jpsprague10: Respectful conversation on values. No beef.
    Today at 06:14:01 PM
  • Scalious: yes I can see that. I actually would have offerd COL something better if Gatwood was still sitting..because I would be so eager to get him
