Lets hear some predictions. I'll start with two high profile guys but would like to hear people take on some other guys too

Parker- Milk ROY, 18pts, 44%, 7 rebounds a game

Randle LAL- 15 pts, 47%, 8 rebounds


I like Parkers game a lot. I wonder if he is as locked in as he needs to be but i think in Milk he will be ROY

I also LOVE Randle. Dude has an NBA body, is athletic, has natural footwork, and is really quick with the ball. I think his adjusment period will be a little longer but i think my the second half od the year on a dead lakers team he will really start to impress

I don't see Randle averaging 15pts a game with Kobe, Booz, Young and Lin as options before he is.

I think he'll average closer to 9 and 5 tbh.

Parker 16 pts a game 44%
Wiggins 13 42%
Exum 6 pts, 40%
Gordon 7 pts 45%
Randle 13 pts 46%
Smart 9 pts 41%

I like these rooks a lot but I think they will likely underwhelm in year 1. There is no Lillard or Davis in this draft that will be stars right out of the gate. If there is one, he will be an MCW type who just comes out of nowhere. Maybe Payton or Warren?

Don't sleep on McBuckets. He's the best pure shooter from this class and will be lighting up the Madhouse on Madison.

even the best rookies in history rarely impact winning.

Wiggins: 16/4 with pretty good defense
Parker: 19 a game
Randle: 11/4
Exum: 9/3


I am not as high on Randle as the OP, he has short arms, and isn't an explosive athlete. I don't think he has superstar potential in the slightest.

Homer Pick: Nerlens Noel

non Homer Pick: Nerlens Noel

i expect him to put up a line around 12ppg/10reb/2.5blk and shoot somewhere around 50%.

Parker already has the skills and he looked really good against the Bulls on Saturday. I see him as the ROY, 17pts, 45%, 7 rebounds, 3 assists per game.

I agree that it's rare that a rookie immediately contributes to winning, as far as your predictions I agree with Wiggins and Parkers numbers while I think both Will be widely inefficient .I think randle will be better than you think and Exum will bust

I dont think Wiggins or Randle will see enough touches to consistently score around 16ppg nor do I think Wiggins is able to score like that right away regardless. I thin Aaron Gordon could end up the sleeper rookie to make a big impact for Orlando, i think he is a great fit to play with Vuc and Frye

I think parker is more ready he will average 17 a game, not sure it will be too efficient though maybe 40-42%
Wiggins I think will be 14-5 maybe 1.5 steals and couple assists a game low efficientcy too. Haven't followed exum don't know about him.

He's a great fit, but way too young and raw. I'm expecting 7pts-5reb or something like that. Its Payton that could be fighting for ROY. He's the best point guard on our roster, so he'll get minutes. I agree about Wiggins and Randle.

I more or less like these projections. For Smart I would say 12 on sub-40 fg%.

How do you think Gordan will be able to score but Wiggins won't? Gordan cannot create his own shot or shoot at all. Wiggins will get 16 most likely since he will get to the like like 9 times a game.

are you guys giving Payton the ball or will Dipo share some of those duties to ease Payton along?

Gordon just off his hustle on putbacks and lobs that type of stuff. Also notice i didnt say how much or that he wull score a lot im talking about that impact he could make between scoring, rebounding, steals, blocks, etc

oh I think Randle can be a good starter, but I don't see anymore than that is all I mean. A 17/9 type PF in his prime isn't a bad thing usually.

I don't know. I think he's ready to contribute right now. Vaughn likes to see the young guys work for their minutes, and he doesn't run an offense that is very dependant on the point guard. IMO by the end of the season Payton should see 30mpg.

I don't think Payton is that type of player. He's a good rebounder, passer, pass first, high fg% type of player.

He may have short arms but he is definitely explosive. He may not jump as high as BG but his bulk, speed and especially his first step is very athletic.

SHould say 3.7 APG. Though everything else should be good for Paton.

Vonleh should also say 7.2 PPG and Randle 4.5 RPG.

Parker is really the one out of this class I see having a big first year and actually effecting a teams win %.

The kid on the Spurs could do well too, if he gets playtime, match made in heaven right there. But he still won't do much in the stats category.

I agree with that absolutely I think he will struggle against bigger players much like boozer has in his career . I also think he will be a mediocre defender

I think the projections for Parker's numbers are a bit high. I'll probably get laughed at, but the Bucks actually may have enough guys to get shots that they won't rely on Parker as much as people think. If we've seen anything from him in the first few preseason games its that his value is directly related to his ability to make shots. On nights he isn't shooting well, we have a lot of other guys deserving of minutes and shots that I don't know that Parker gets enough looks to average 20 a night. I think more like 15-16 might be more realistic.

not even LeBron or Durant impacted their teams winning games much, and Parker is not that good of a prospect. The Bucks might have something, but they are going to suck again.

he will be more reliant on pure strength than BG, not a good comparison at all. At first he reminded me of Zach Randolph, but then I realized he was more athletic than that haha

Your probably right, but Kidd has become a true pro at leaving a bad situation for a good one over the years.

But yeah, bucks probably not near ready yet.

Because he isn't....

Parker has never been considered the prospect LeBron was, and Durant's freshman year, and his size and length for his position, made him a much better prospect as well.

Parker is likened to Melo by almost every scout available with an opinion. Not a bad outcome obviously...

Parker was on the cover of SI being called the best prospect since James his jr. year. it wasnt until he got hurt and elected to get surgeory that the Wiggins hype increased. Regardless of your opinion of him you are complletly wrong to say the #2 pick in the deepest draft in a decade "isnt that good of a prospect". You have nothing to base that on

One rookie that people may not have heard of but they will soon is Kostas Papanikolaou. The Rockets signed him to a pretty big two-year deal from one of the best Euroleague teams in Greece and he has looked really, really good through four games. So far, he's averaging roughly 9/4/2/1/1. He's just a smart basketball player and he looks like a veteran on the floor. He hasn't quite found the NBA 3-point range yet, but he moves extremely well with and without the ball, he makes plays for other players, defends well, rebounds well and has a knack for getting to the rim.

He reminds me a lot of Chandler Parsons in his rookie season. I seriously think Papanikolaou will be the primary backup wing off the bench behind Harden and Ariza and will get 20-25 minutes a game as a rookie.
