Ranking the Top 30 Starting Point Guards in NBA
25.) Jamal Murray – Denver Nuggets
Murray is more of a combo guard than a point, but with Emmanuel Mudiay not turning out as planned so far in Denver, Murray might be their most logical option. His adjustment to running the point has him at this spot in the rankings.
24.) De’Aaron Fox – Sacramento Kings
Although they signed George Hill over the offseason, I believe Fox will get the majority of the reigns at point guard during his first season. Struggling with an outside shot like Payton, Fox will rely solely on his athleticism in year one.
23.) Reggie Jackson – Detroit Pistons
Detroit traded for Jackson a few years ago to be their franchise point guard and it hasn’t turned out perfectly. After trying to give him away in trades last season, he has an uphill battle at improving his stock in the league.
22.) Malcolm Brogdon – Milwaukee Bucks
Yes, Brogdon won the Rookie of the Year award last season, but it was a really down year for the complete rookie class. He is a solid piece moving forward, but technically Giannis Antetokounmpo could be called their point guard as the offense runs through him.
21.) Patty Mills – San Antonio Spurs
Mills got his payday when the Spurs re-signed the guard to a multi-year deal over the summer as Tony Parker recovers from his injury. Mills is a solid scoring veteran that is probably playing at his peak at the moment.
