Young guns to watch out for in NBA 2018

Another year, another NBA season, another chance to watch the crazy skills of our stars and another chance for punters to win big via online sports betting. We all know what the experienced stars will likely give us in 2018, something like more of the same from previous seasons or maybe some improvements here and there. However, each year, new stars are born and 2018 promises to be no different. Below, we have compiled a list of promising prospects that may find their feet in NBA in 2018.

Tyus Jones (20) Minnesota Timberwolves

In 2017, Jones showed us glimpses of what he is made up of even though he featured in cameos for his team. For every turnover Jones completed in 2017, he tossed out 4.13 assists. Considering he played backup to Kris Dunn and Ricky Rubio all season, Jones is likely to produce more if given a decent run in the team.

Thorn Maker (20) Milwaukee Bucks

Maker is a prospect to look out for in 2018. He does not have that swagger that many pros show these days but he does his business the classic, traditional way. He is raw, guard-like and has relentless energy. He is also one man you want when trying to preserve a lead, as he is a foul machine higher up the pitch.

Dejounte Murray (20) San Antonio Spurs

Murray showed last season that he is a great finisher. Many say it’s difficult to judge someone who has only 280 active minutes on his belt but from what we saw in the few minutes, he was on the pitch, Murray promises to be a world-beater. In 280 minutes, he had percentage shooting rates of 43.4 from the field and 40.9 outside.

Ben Simmons (20) Philadelphia 76ers

Ben Simmons hasn’t yet made his debut in the NBA but he finds himself on this list merely on the hype he has created on the training field. He is said to have an eye for a pass and his shooting is said to be a cut above the rest. With a commanding frame also, if a chance presents itself next year, of which I am confident it will, we will finally see Simmons in action and I think we all may be impressed.

Ivica Zubac (19) Los Angeles Lakers

The youngest of the lot finds himself bottom of our list but that is not to say his talents are not on par with those above him. Zubac played just 7 times in 42 games yet he finds himself in fourth position among freshman in double-doubles. Zubac averaged 4.9 rebounds and 7.6 points in 17.7 minutes during his limited minutes out on the field.
