    So, honestly, it's over.
    ROOKIE OF YEAR: BEN SIMMONS 20.0 PER, 32.1 PTS+AST+REB

    That said, here's a position by position look at the ROY Hunt

    POINT GUARD
    My Ratings (post-draft): Fultz 94, Evans 88, Ball 87, Smith 87, Fox 85, White 69, Ntilikina 57

    PER
    Smith 12.8, Ball 12.5, Fultz 12.4, Fox 11.1

    PTS+AST+REB
    Ball 24.3
    Smith 24.2
    Fox 18.8
    Fultz 14.0

    Rookie of Year Candidates: Smith and Ball are the only two who really deserve attention here, and Ball missed 30 games. I think Smith has had the clear best rookie season.

    WING
    My Ratings: Josh Jackson 82, Josh Hart 80, Malik Monk 77, Luke Kennard 75, Jonathan Isaac 74, Jayson Tatum 72, Justin Jackson 71, Donovan Mitchell 70, Terrance Ferguson 52

    PER
    Mitchell 16.7
    Tatum 15.3
    Hart 12.2
    Kennard 12.1
    Josh Jackson 11.8

    PTS+AST+REB
    Mitchell 27.9
    Tatum 20.5
    Josh Jackson 19.2
    Hart 13.4
    Kennard 11.7

    Rookie of Year Candidates: Mitchell's the guy here, by a mile. Tatum would be second, and I'd probably give third to Jackson. Hart made a strong push at the end, but he didn't play enough minutes to warrant serious consideration.

    BIG
    My Ratings: Z. Collins 93, J. Collins 92, Bradley 91, Allen 85, Leaf 81, Patton 79, Anunoby 77, Adebayo 76, Giles 72, Anigbobu 70, Hartenstein 70, Swanigan 68, Kuzma 64

    PER
    Anigbogu 21.6*
    Patton 19.8*
    J. Collins 18.3
    Allen 17.5
    Adebayo 15.7
    Kuzma 14.2

    PTS+AST+REB
    Kuzma 24.2
    John Collins 19.1
    Allen 14.3
    Adebayo 13.9

    Rookie of Year Candidate: This is the toughest position, honestly. Kuzma ran away with the raw totals, but he didn't do it efficiently. Collins scored effectively but has no nuance to his offensive game. He posted strong defensive numbers. Allen posted some excellent defensive numbers, and he led all rookies in eFG% and TS% who played at least 1000 minutes.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Kuzma is a top five finisher overall, and Ball might be a top 10 finisher depending upon what people make of his missed games and shooting, and even Hart might get some love with that strong finish.
