Young players are the excitement and the future of the NBA. We say Zach LaVine, a rookie last season totally destroy the slam dunk contest while Anthony Davis lead the Pelicans to the playoffs. Some take a while to develop, and others don’t. Here’s ten players I will be keeping close tabs on come the 2015-2016 NBA season.
#10 Ben McLemore, Sacramento Kings
Ben McLemore was taken with the 7th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft by the Kings and we knew he he’d need a bit more work. He’s a great at dunking the basketball, and also rose his field goal percentage by 5.9% from his rookie season. His three-point shooting percentage also improved, and he posted carer high in totals during his second year. He’s trending upwards, and he has our attention.
