NBA Rookie Rankings: Week 3

Ranking the top players in the Rookie of the Year race

The Rookie of the Year race was considered Zion Williamson’s award to lose by most analysts, but since he is expected to miss significant time with a knee injury this would no longer seem to be the case. At the conclusion of each week during the NBA season we will take a look and re-evaluate the performances of the 2019 rookie class. The rankings are based off of the performance by each player during the season as if the Rookie of the Year award was being given today, not what we consider their overall career potential.

1. Ja Morant (Memphis Grizzlies)

2. RJ Barrett (New York Knicks)

3. Kendrick Nunn (Miami Heat)

4. Eric Paschall (Golden State Warriors)

5. PJ Washington (Charlotte Hornets)

6. Rui Hachimura (Washington Wizards)

7. Brandon Clarke (Memphis Grizzlies)

8. Tyler Herro (Miami Heat)

9. Coby White (Chicago Bulls)

10. De’Andre Hunter (Atlanta Hawks)
