Postby kaisy on Fri Sep 06, 2013 2:01 am NBA editor Mitch Ward is tracking the progress of the 2012-13 NBA Freshman Class and will be updating the Rookie Rankings every week. The top two spots remain unchanged in this weeks Rookie Rankings but there is a decent amount of turnover on the lower rungs starting with Charlottes Michael Kidd-Gilchrist moving up to the three spot. Kidd-Gilchrist overtook Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters thanks in large part to a dominant display in the Bobcats upset win over the Mavericks. If he keeps up his across the board production, Anthony Davis and Damian Lillard might just find themselves bumped down a peg or two. Wizards guard Bradley Beal is the biggest climber this week after shaking off a slow start to the season. He jumps from the 10 spot all the way to number five on the list after. The only Raptor in the top-10 continues to be Jonas Valanciunas which will likely be the case for most of the season. The big Lithuanian has been steady since the beginning of the year. We also have two new faces in the rankings this week as Alexey Shved and Andre Drummond join the top-10. Trending the opposite way, Thomas Robinson and Jae Crowder find themselves tumbling from the list. The Top 10 1.
