Every other week on Friday I will write a blog titled Rookie Report that will feature a reveiw of the Top Rookies in the NBA...
The Top 10 list is based on stats from the entire season.
The Top 10:
- O.J. Mayo (SG - Memphis) 20.8 ppg - 4.2 rpg - 2.6 apg - 0.1 bpg
- Derrick Rose (PG - Chicago) 18.3 ppg - 3.8 rpg - 6.1 apg - 0.3 bpg
- Michael Beasley (PF - Miami) 13.9 ppg - 5.2 rpg - 1.0 apg - 0.5 bpg
- Russell Westbrook (PG - OKC) 13.1 ppg - 3.9 rpg - 4.2 apg - 0.3 bpg
- D.J. Augustin (PG - Charlotte) 12.8 ppg - 1.9 rpg - 4.1 apg - 0.0 bpg
- Marc Gasol (C - Memphis) 11.8 ppg - 6.9 rpg - 1.4 apg - 0.9 bpg
- Rudy Fernandez (SG - Portland) 11.3 ppg - 3.1 rpg - 1.9 apg - 0.3 bpg
- Brook Lopez (C - New Jersey) 9.6 ppg - 7.5 rpg - 0.7 apg - 1.7 bpg
- Jason Thompson (PF - Sacremento) 9.8 ppg - 6.7 rpg - 1.0 apg - 0.8 bpg
- Mario Chalmers (SG - Miami) 9.5 ppg - 2.7 rpg - 4.4 apg - 0.1 bpg
So Memphis has the best NBA Rookie team with O.J. Mayo and Marc Gasol but Michael Beasley and Mario Chalmers are making a case for Miami. I'm still looking for Portland to come through with Rudy Fernandez and Greg Oden (Oden is not far from the Top 10).
Sean Singletary (PG - Phoenix) traded to the Charlotte Bobcats.
Singletary was traded along with 2 other teamates (Raja Bell and Boris Diaw) to the Charlotte Bobcats from the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday for former ACC rival Jared Dudley and Jason Richardson along with the Bobcats 2010 2nd Round Draft Pick.
2.6 ppg - 1.2 rpg - 0.9 apg - 0.0 bpg... Singletary is only averaging about 9.4 minutes per game and he has only started 1 game in 13 games played.
He will most likely play off the bench behind Rookie PG D.J. Augustin if the Bobcats continue to start Raymond Felton at SG.
