Inside the NBA’s closest Rookie of the Year going into the season in awhile

Luka Doncic-Guard-Dallas Mavericks-Doncic is probably the best overall prospect in the draft,and I would not be surprised if he puts up fourteen points and eight assists.Doncic is a versatile perimeter player with the ability to play the point guard,shooting guard,and small forward which is good due to the likes of guards Dennis Smith Jr. and Yogi Ferrell,and forward Harrison Barnes.Doncic could definitley win the ROTY if he scores more than fifteen points and more than nine assists and makes a good impact in the Mavs’ record.

DeAndre Ayton-Center-Phoenix Suns-Ayton did everything expected in summer league nothing less.Ayton was dominant in college at Arizona as a guy who could average seventeen points and twelve rebounds per game in the NBA.Ayton should develop a jumper and is a willing defender.Ayton along with Devin Booker,Josh Jackson,and the rest of the crew should get the Suns back to at least mediocrity.DeAndre should be a good piece in his home state and fit in with the rest of the young Suns well.

Marvin Bagley-Power Forward-Sacramento Kings-Bagley is a threat from anywhere on the floor including the three pointer as a versatile big man.Bagley and point guard De’Aaron Fox are likely to be the nice young duo in Sac-town for years to come.Bagley may have a hard time adjusting to playing decent defense in the NBA.If he’s a guy who can put up seventeen,twelve,and a block Bagley could possibly go home with some hardware next June.Bagley could explode and be a rookie star but Bagley will have to work to be the winner come next June.

Collin Sexton-Point Guard-Cleveland Cavaliers
Collin Sexton did very well in the summer league,and should be the next one up in Cleveland due to LeBron’s move to LA.Sexton needs to develop a jumper (the only glaring weakness between these four players) but is a great scorer and should defend pretty well come the regular season.Sexton may be overshadowed by Kevin Love but if he and Love lead the Cavs to sneak in the playoffs,Sexton has a good shot at winning the hardware.Sexton should be a guy who puts up fifteen to eighteen points,five assists,and a couple steals.

Good evaluation of ROTY candidates. What do you think about Kawhi trade?
