  1. Jerian Grant, New York Knicks

Jerian has looked solid so far this season coming in off the Knicks bench as a significant role player. Jerian is averaging over 24 minutes per game and is ranked 3rd among rookies in both assists and steals as well as 8th in scoring.

Jose Calderon is starting in front of him but has not looked good thus far and I would not be surprised to see the 6’4″ point guard leap-frog the 34 year-old if Calderon’s production continues to slide, and if Grant’s continues to rise.
