Ranking the Top 30 Starting Point Guards in NBA
30.) Kris Dunn – Chicago Bulls
Dunn comes over from Minnesota in the Jimmy Butler deal to be the starting point guard for the Bulls. After an underwhelming rookie season in Minny, the Wolves decided to part ways with the 5th overall pick after one season.
He now becomes the starting point guard on the rebuilding Bulls team.
29.) Darren Collison – Indiana Pacers
After Jeff Teague left in free agency for Minnesota, Indiana signed the veteran Collison to take over their point guard duties with Cory Joseph. Collison is a backup point at best at this point in his career.
28.) Rajon Rondo – New Orleans Pelicans
Rondo spent last season in Chicago where he could barely see the court at times, he had a successful playoff run before being waived over the offseason. He now takes over the reigns at point in New Orleans with Jrue Holiday sliding over to shooting guard.
27.) Elfrid Payton – Orlando Magic
Time is running out for Payton in Orlando as the youngster is still figuring out his role in the league without a steady shot. After shooting 27% from behind the arc last year, Payton has ways to go in showing he’s one of the up-and-coming point guards in the league.
26.) Frank Ntilikina – New York Knicks
New York decided to go with Ntilikina over Dennis Smith Jr. on draft night and it could come back to bite them. Ntilikina should be good in the long run, but will take time to adjust in the short-term.
