Underrated 2023 NBA Rookies

The 2023 NBA rookie class turned out to be pretty deep. Everyone knows the obvious players like Victor Wembanyama and Chet Holmgren but there were a ton of other rookies who look like they could be stars. Let’s look at some with high potential.

Amen Thompson Housotn Rockets

Amen may already be one of the best athletes in the NBA. From the shooting guard spot he is an elite rebounder and looks like he could be an elite defender as well.

People were quick to dismiss Scoot as a bust but he quietly had a good end to his rookie season. In April he averaged 19.4 points and 9.7 assists per game while shooting 41.7% from three.

Brandon Miller Charlotte Hornets

Maybe a lot of people didn’t watch Charlotte Hornets basketball this year but Miller looked really good after a slow start. He had some massive games and showed that he was a good shot creator after the rumors of him being just a catch and shoot player early in the season.

Cam Whitmore Houston Rockets

A little-talked about rookie, Whitmore was great when given opportunities. If nothing else he will be a spark plug scorer off the bench. If he can develop more ball skills he could be a star.
