Rookie Of The Year Picks

With averages of 17.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game, Paulo Banchero was arguable the best players in college basketball last season as a member of Duke. At just 19 years old, he has an opportunity to become the first Orlando Magic player since Mike Miller in 2001 to win this award. Aside from his averages, his efficiency was also through the roof as he shot 47.8 percent from the field and 33.8 percent from three-point land. But, most importantly, the Orlando Magic roster is currently constructed in a really favorable way for Banchero to win this award. With a bunch of talented players and no egos involved, Banchero will definitely get enough playing time as a started on the team to put up solid numbers and if he is able to lead his team in scoring that would definitely improve his case to win ROY honors. At +180 odds I think he is a really solid bet to lift this award, even if the Magic aren’t in playoff contention.

Another player worth looking at is Houston Rockets forward Jabari Smith Jr. at +550 odds. Trading away Christian Wood to the Dallas Mavericks has opened up the roster for Smith to start and as we’ve seen in previous years, more playing time means a bigger usage rate which could lead to higher productivity on the court. One skill that he can use to his advantage is three-point shooting. He enters the NBA after shooting 42% from beyond-the-arc at Auburn last season which should translate well into the three-point friendly Rockets offense.

Outsider Rookie Of The Year Picks

Playing in a rebuilding situation is always good for your numbers and that’s exactly what Bennedict Mathurin is counting on. The 6-foot-6 swingman from Arizona comes into the NBA after putting up solid averages of 17.7 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game. A starting spot at the point-guard position has opened after the Pacers traded away Malcolm Brogdon to the Boston Celtics. Tyrese Haliburton could very well slide into that role after a stellar first season with the Pacers after the acquired him from Sacramento. As a team the Pacers finished 11th in assists last season, which is always a good situation for a rookie like Mathurin coming in. at +1100 odds he is an intriguing sleeper pick for the award.

Shaedon Sharpe is our final outsider pick for this award at +2000 odds. His situation at Portland isn’t ideal for a rooking looking to develop, but things could very well change as we’ve seen that to be the case with the Blazers often in recent years. The team is riddled with injuries almost every season and there’s always a chance that Damian Lillard requests a trade 10 games into the season after a horrible start, something that isn’t out of the question. After finishing just 27th in the NBA in points per game as a team, the Blazers need someone to step up and help Lillard on offense. The No. 7 pick is more than capable of doing so if given the opportunity early on in the season.
