ESPN's NBA Rookie Watch Following Summer League

You can catch the whole article here, but a couple of our Bruin rookies got some mention in David Thorpe's Rookie Watch ranking the NBA rookie class with summer league now being completed.

13. Darren Collison, Hornets
He'd be a top-10 guy for me if he were playing on almost any other team. His ability to handle the point guard duties for the Hornets will be evident from day one. Of course, playing behind the world's best point guard will make it hard for Collison to play more than 10 minutes a game. Maybe New Orleans coach Byron Scott will develop him earlier and get CP3 more rest during the season.

and listed under "The Project List"

Jrue Holiday, 76ers
Holiday had the double misfortune of not playing the point for an entire season at UCLA (though after watching Collison's talent it's easy to understand why), then getting to do it for the hybrid Nets-Sixers team that never jelled at all. The bad news is that every part of his offensive game seemed below par, but the good news is that his talent was obvious. He's a solid prospect to be sure, and the best news is that he defended the ball better than any guard we saw in either summer league.

Seems about on par with the discussions around here, Collison being more polished but not expecting a whole lot of playing time this year and Holiday having a lot of potential but needing a lot of work.
