Throughout the course of the 2013-14 season, HoopsHabit will be presenting an NBA rookie power ranking, letting you see who has the best shot at winning the Rookie of the Year Award at season’s end
A new wrench has been thrown into the two-man race for the NBA Rookie of the Year race by the name of Trey Burke. His return has led to Utah tripling their overall win total (from one to three) in his nine games. Burke’s return may not make the Jazz a threat, but it makes Burke a threat to the top of the NBA Rookie Rankings.
The top of the rankings are relatively unchanged from last week’s edition, but there is bound to be some shaking up with the emergence of Burke and improving play of another high profile rookie, this once closed race is now open for business.
After this week’s turn of events, who stands as the top rookie?
