1.) Cade Cunningham (Pistons)

2.) Jalen Green (Rockets)

3.) Evan Mobley (Cavs)

4.) Scottie Barnes (Raptors)

5.) Jalen Suggs (Magic)

So, the first three picks are in the exact order, but Suggs who was picked after Barnes is ranked higher. 

Chris Duarte of the Indiana Pacers did not crack the rankings of the top-five players from his draft class, and his rating has not yet been announced. 

He should be one of the top-rookies based on his production in college, and his showing at NBA Summer League averaging 18.3 points, 2.5 steals and 1.8 blocks per game in Las Vegas, Nevada.
