Apart from our own of course, what other incoming NBA rookies are you guys looking most forward to watching or keeping track of this coming season?

I'm particularly curious about Dennis Smith Jr. from the Mavericks. I think he could potentially be flying under the radar quite a bit. If he has his head on right, I most definitely see all-star potential and don't be surprised if he makes a ton of highlight reels as well. That vertical is pure insanity.

Pretty much everyone in the top 10. Especially Markkanen, Tatum, and Smith Jr.. Curious how the Kings do with those 4 picks, I think they had the best draft.

I think there will be a lot of intrigue for some late first rounders to early second rounders even. I always get the league pass so I'll be able to keep up thankfully.

Curious if Jordan Bell could really be a steal for the Warriors and have the kind of success their rookie last year in McCaw had if not more.

Also interested in DJ Wilson, OG, Ojeleye, Leaf among others.

Time will obviously tell just how deep or not this draft truly was when all said and done.

yo.

Tatum looks to be a god *altho it's just summer league

I'm really excited about Hart
