What sort of numbers do people think Ayton will post in his rookie year? I've seen a lot of projections but I thought I'd start a thread to gather them in 1 place. I decided against making a poll because trying to come up with scoring averages was easy enough but matching those with rebound projections was a bit harder. Adding in blocks per game would have been difficult. So people can just post what they think he'll average and they can add more info to it if they feel it's necessary. There's more that can be predicted also, like rookie awards and participation in All-Star weekend in the Rising Stars game. I'm also curious how others view him in regards to the rookie of the year race. Do you think he's a favorite for that award? If not a favorite, who do you think will be in the running for it? How many Rookie of the Month awards will he win this season, if any? Will he finish 1st or 2nd Team All Rookie? I think he'll probably average about 15 & 8 on around 28-32 minutes a game. He'll probably start the season averaging around 25-30 minutes a game and that will go up as the season goes on and he gets more comfortable playing. I don't think he'll make a huge defensive impact this year and will probably only average 1-1.5 blocks a game. I think he'll get at least 1 Rookie of the Month award and be in the All-Star Weekend Rookie/Sophomore game but I'm not sure about Rookie of the Year. If he stays healthy he'll make the 1st Rookie team but I think the Suns will need to be close to 500 for him to get Rookie of the Year. He'll compete with Doncic, Trae Young, and Collin Sexton for that this year. I think Sexton or Young will win it because they're both in position to put up crazy numbers on their teams and that will help them stand out more than Ayton. Averaging close to 20ppg with 6 or 7 assists per game will look better to the voters than Ayton's points and rebounds. That's why he'd have to help the Suns reach 500 or so to get more recognition.
