NBA Rookie Rankings

Ranking the top players in the Rookie of The Year award race

The Rookie of the Year race was considered Zion Williamson’s award to lose by most analysts, but since he is just now returning to action there has been plenty of time for the other rookies to make their claim as the top 2019 draft pick. At the conclusion of each week (or so) 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. Kendrick Nunn (Miami Heat)

3. RJ Barrett (New York Knicks)

4. Eric Paschall (Golden State Warriors)

5. Tyler Herro (Miami Heat)

6. Rui Hachimura (Washington Wizards)

7. PJ Washington (Charlotte Hornets)

8. Brandon Clarke (Memphis Grizzlies)

9. De’Andre Hunter (Atlanta Hawks)

10. Darius Garland (Cleveland Cavaliers)
