In ranking rookies this week, ESPN's David Thorpe takes a look at those who show "promise", focusing on 13 of them. At #4, Thorpe has Ryan Anderson, who "still projects to be a 3-point-shooting specialist in this league, at the very least; he has the potential to be more than that." Overall, Anderson ranks #23 on Thorpe's list. Brook Lopez is still #3. Meanwhile, Dave McMenamin of NBA.com looks at next year's class.
