22. Wendell Carter Jr.
We follow two incoming top ten picks with another top ten pick from a year ago in Wendell Carter Jr. Carter saw his rookie season cut short for the Chicago Bulls but impressed in his time on the court.
His 10 points and 7 rebounds in 25 minutes a game weren’t exactly overwhelming, but it was his defense that was so impressive, especially on a team with so little help in that arena. He communicates well on defense and was the one player on the team with decent defensive metrics, quite an accomplishment as a rookie big man.
