Top Ten NBA Players with the Best Chance to Win 2018-19 Rookie of the Year

The Rookie of the year is usually one of the most contested awards and usually signifies future success. They usually have a huge impact for their team and is one of the teams mental, social, and playwise leaders. Let's look at some of the candidates for this award.

The Top Ten

1 Collin Sexton Collin Sexton

Sexton is a beast. He will be the leader for the Cavs. He will be allowed to do whatever he wants and the Cavs have a good chance to make the playoffs if Kevin Love is not traded and maybe even if he is. - 2storm

2 Marvin Bagley III Marvin Bagley III

On a pretty bad Kings team he will be able to take control on offense. Plus he has a good point in Fox who can really help him get adjusted to the NBA, since Fox had a great rookie year last year. - 2storm

3 DeAndre Ayton DeAndre Ayton

Ayton will be great with the Suns. He has Booker who has a chance to elevate Ayton's play level. The Suns also maybe have a chance to make the playoffs which would of course elevate Ayton's chances in a stacked West. - 2storm

4 Michael Porter Jr Michael Porter Jr

I think this depends a lot on his health. If he is healthy he could end up being one of the top candidates. - 2storm

5 Trae Young Trae Young

Young has a very good chance to win it, if he just doesn't get overwhelmed and if he can get his shot down. - 2storm

6 Mohamed Bamba Mohamed Bamba

This one really depends on how much of the offense the Magic give to Mohamed Bamba. - 2storm

7 Luka Dončić Luka Dončić

Just don't know how his rookie year will go. So many questions about his footwork and athleticism. - 2storm

8 Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

The Clippers got him and hopefully he can develop into something, it's just very unlikely for him to win. - 2storm

9 Kevin Knox

Even though I hate the pick of Knox, that early, he still does have the chance to win. - 2storm

10 Wendell Carter Jr Wendell Carter Jr

Probably won't win because of the roster he is on, but he will be great in the NBA. - 2storm
