Ranking the Top 30 Starting Point Guards in NBA
15.) D’Angelo Russell – Brooklyn Nets
The Lakers gave up on Russell in their rebuild and he will probably make them pay for it in the coming years in Brooklyn. He will be the featured guy for the Nets, but will need to prove he is a capable leader to run a team.
14.) Patrick Beverley – Los Angeles Clippers
This could be Milos Teodosic, but I’m giving Beverley the edge as the starter at the moment. He gives you an all around game that can defend some of the best point guards in the game.
13.) Ricky Rubio – Utah Jazz
Rubio moves over to Utah to run a system featuring Rudy Gobert and Joe Ingles. He is one of the more underrated point guards in the league and should fit in nicely in Utah.
12.) Goran Dragic – Miami Heat
Dragic has been playing at a high level for Slovenia over the summer and looks to continue that play into the season this fall. He averaged over 20 points a game on a Heat team that made a complete 180 degree turn on the season last year.
11.) Kemba Walker – Charlotte Hornets
Kemba is right at the point in his career where he needs to take the next step in his game to move up the list. Getting Charlotte back up the East standings will be a good first step in that.
