The 2018-2019 NBA season will welcome many talented rookies from all over the world, but only one player can be crowned the 2019 NBA Rookie of the Year. During their first year in the league, the best NBA rookies will rise above the rest. A strong NBA debut can lead to a bright future in basketball, so these top NBA rooks must step up their game to hang with the pros. Considering the NBA rookie ladder, what are your 2018 Rookie of the Year predictions? How do you think these rooks compare to the 2017 Draft Class

While Arizona center Deandre Ayton was the number one pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Slovenian plauer Luka Doncic, who won the EuroLeague Championship and MVP Award at 19, is known as one of the best players in his class. Other 2019 ROTY contenders include Trae Young, Marvin Bagley III, Mohamed Bamba, and Michael Porter Jr.

Vote for the player you think will win the 2018-19 NBA Rookie of the Year.
