As the NBA rookies prepare to embark on the professional basketball journeys, we rank our preseason favorites for Rookie of the Year from 1 through 10, projecting who will make the biggest impact during their first year in the big leagues.

1. Brandon Ingram

Drafted: Second by Los Angeles Lakers

With a wiry 6-foot-10, 190-pound frame and the ability to score from anywhere on the floor, it’s no wonder Ingram’s game drew Kevin Durant comparisons during his lone collegiate season at Duke. With veteran forward Luol Deng on the roster, he might not be in the starting lineup on opening night, but you can expect him to make an immediate impact on both ends of the floor regardless. For a young and hungry Lakers squad turning over a new leaf without franchise icon Kobe Bryant, Ingram is the future.


Three-point shot more popular than ever in NBA

2. Buddy Hield

Drafted: Sixth by New Orleans Pelicans

The 2016 consensus national player of the year — widely considered to be the best shooter of this year’s draft — heads to The Big Easy with the necessary tools to make his presence felt offensively for a team that lost its two biggest perimeter threats in Ryan Anderson (36.6% from three, 2.0 makes per game) and Eric Gordon (38.4%, 2.5 makes) over the summer. With the oft-injured Tyreke Evans likely out until December, expect Buddy Buckets to impress from the beginning.

3. Kris Dunn

Drafted: Fifth by Minnesota Timberwolves

The newest addition to a team with the past two Rookie of the Year winners in Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, Dunn is expected to start the year coming off the bench behind starting point guard Ricky Rubio. That doesn’t mean he won’t see his fair share of minutes. With great size (6-4, 220 pounds), explosive athleticism and the versatility to play and defend both guard positions, the 22-year-old out of Providence has the makings of a star. Dunn’s fellow NBA newcomers gave him 29% of the preseason Rookie of the Year vote in the NBA’s annual rookie survey.

4. Ben Simmons

Drafted: First by Philadelphia 76ers

Simmons was the early favorite for Rookie of the Year, but his stock took a hit when he fractured a bone in his foot just a few days before the start of the preseason. But when he makes his eventual NBA debut, the No. 1 overall pick — who has the size of a power forward, the athleticism of a swingman and the passing ability of a top-tier point guard — will be the immediate face of a franchise looking to climb out of the bottom of the NBA barrel after three straight sub 20-win seasons.

    5. Joel Embiid

    Drafted: Third (in 2014) by 76ers

    Two years after his name was called on draft night, Embiid is poised to show the NBA world what made him one of the most heralded youngsters after his freshman year at Kansas. And the NBA world is eager to watch. After two foot surgeries in two years, expect the Sixers to ease the 7-footer into the action, taking a cautious approach for the sake of his long-term development. But once he gets up to full speed, Embiid — a big, fluid athlete with an elite offensive skill set and defensive abilities to match — figures to be near the top of the Rookie of the Year race.

    6. Jamal Murray

    Drafted: Seventh by Denver Nuggets

    With the NBA in the midst of a three-point shooting revolution, Murray — a 6-5, sweet-shooting combo guard — has the potential to be a great fit alongside (or behind) Emmanuel Mudiay in Denver’s young backcourt sooner rather than later. He shot 40.8% (113 makes) from beyond the arc during his one year at Kentucky. He could have gone as high as third on draft night, so the Nuggets nabbing him at seventh was a no-brainer.

    7. Dario Saric

    Drafted: 12th by Orlando Magic (in 2014), traded to 76ers

    After spending the past two seasons honing his skills in Turkey with Anadolu Efes, Saric joins a crowded Sixers frontcourt with Simmons, Embiid, Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel. He averaged 11.7 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 24 Euroleague games last year and shot 40.3% from beyond the arc (1.2 makes), a drastic improvement from the 30.6% (0.7 makes) he shot the year before. At 6-10, with the versatility to play either the three or the four, Saric should see plenty of playing time this season despite the potential logjam.


    The more things change for Spurs, the more they stay the same

    8. Jaylen Brown

    Drafted: Third by Boston Celtics

    Uber athletic, great size (6-7,225 pounds) and wingspan (nearly 7-feet), seemingly endless ceiling — Brown has the physical tools to excel on both ends of the floor and the potential to be a star for the Celtics. Eventually. But as a rookie for a team vying for the second spot in the East, don’t expect Brown — who struggled mightily with his jumper at Cal, making just 29.4% of his threes — to log big minutes right away.

    9. Dragan Bender

    Drafted: Fourth by Phoenix Suns

    Bender — a 7-1 do-it-all forward out of Croatia — has the size of a center, but his shooting touch, court vision and defensive versatility make him a threat anywhere in the frontcourt. There’s a reason he was one of the most sought-after prospects despite averaging just 5.5 points and 13.4 minutes in the Israeli Premier League last year. But he was the youngest player in the draft and won’t turn 19 until mid-November, and at a mere 225 pounds, his transition may be a little rocky.

    10. Taurean Prince

    Drafted: 12th by Utah Jazz, traded to Atlanta Hawks

    One of the more NBA-ready players taken on draft night, Prince heads to Atlanta as a viable option to eventually replace three-and-D guy DeMarre Carroll, who left for Toronto last summer. Prince improved in each of his four seasons at Baylor, capping off his collegiate career with 15.9-point, 6.1-rebound, 2-3 assist averages. He also emerges as a perimeter threat, leading the Bears in three-pointers made in his junior and senior seasons. At 6-8, 220 pounds with a 6-11 1/2 wingspan, he’s equipped to guard multiple positions at the highest level.
