Gut feeling is Parker since he's automatically coming in as the #1 option on a team with a bunch of unproven talent. Not to mention he has the most polished offensive game compared to every other prospect.

Had Embiid entered the season healthy, the race would have been a little more interesting.

For kicks, my dark horse pick is TJ Warren.

IMO Wiggins is more of a number 1 option now than Parker. In Milwaukee, Parker has more talent around him imo. Players that are going to get a lot of touches. In Minnesota Wiggins will get a crap load of minutes and touches. They two are the favorites though now that Embiid won't play the first few months.

Is Bruno going to appear on the court for us some time this season? I'd like to see him get a taste of NBA action as early as possible.

A name no one mentioned yet: Nerlens Noel (yes, he's considered a rookie).

I'm going to say the Lakers Julius Randle.

I think he will lead all rookies in:
> minutes
> shot attempts
>top 3 rook in scoring
>#1 in rookie boards

He's a lefty, which is always awkward to defend. It looks like he can take fools off the dribble. If he can stay healthy and productive, we could see some astonishing games out of the youngster this season.

All depends on how much Boozer plays really. I can see Randle eating up a lot of the minutes at the 4 for the Lakers, but it'll have to either come at the expense of Booz which is hard to see happening with Byron Scott as a coach who prefers to play vets, or if Booz gets injured.

I'd say the rankings will end up being:

1. Parker
2. Wiggins
3. Noel

I cant see Smart being in the conversation with so many players on his team that need the ball to be effective(himself included obviously), and Rondo running the show, but I think Smart will end up being one of the best players from this draft.

Elfrid Payton will likely climb the ROY ranks as well as the season progresses, especially if he gains chemistry with Oladipo quickly. They could be an amazing back court if they could figure out how to fit with one another offensively, because defensively together they should be the best backcourt in the NBA as early as 2015-16.

I like Parker's size and his game. I think he'll adapt to the NBA game faster than Wiggins will. I'm interested to see what Kidd does with that roster because a lot of what Drew did last season made no sense to me.

Noel should def. be in the mix too.

I'd like TJ Warren's chances more if PHX ended up dealing Bledsoe. Not sure why PHX and DET didn't just do a sign & swap (Bledsoe for Monroe) since it'd suit both squads.

I'm not sure how you came to this conclusion. Parker has more talent around him? Players who are "going to get a lot of touches"? Who?

Unless further trades are made, Minny's top 6 rotation will contain Kevin Martin, Pekovic and Thad Young. Does Milwaukee even have a single player as good as any of them on offense?

Wiggins might be the better player, but I think Parker has the advantage in terms of his role being more conducive to obtaining the stats that help win the ROY.
