LAS VEGAS -- How did the rookie class stack up? Hereís a look at 15 rookies and the impressions they made at Summer League.


Blake Griffin (Clippers): NBA body, mind and poise on display. Complete package is a keeper.
Tyreke Evans (Kings): Used his 6-foot-5-inch frame and filled up stat sheet.
Jonny Flynn (Wolves): Fearlessly attacked the rim and set up his teammates for easy scores.
Brandon Jennings (Bucks): Quarterbacked team to 4-1 mark with pass-first mentality.
Austin Daye (Pistons): Daily mismatch was picked at the tail end of the lottery.


DeJuan Blair (Spurs): Knee worries? Rebound machine was a second-round steal.
Chase Budinger (Rockets): Did all the little things that coaches love, plus score.
DeJuan Summers (Pistons): Teamís leading scorer hit at least 19 points three times.
Darren Collison (Hornets): Chris Paul may finally have the backup he can trust.
Roddy Beaubois (Mavs): Maybe the quickest in Vegas has natural point guard instincts.


Hasheem Thabeet (Grizzlies): The second pick was unsure with the ball and not a defensive factor.
Stephen Curry (Warriors): The shots kept coming and coming. They just werenít falling.
Earl Clark (Suns): Power forward was given every opportunity to shine and he didnít.
Ty Lawson (Nuggets): Whoís that in the gym shooting all summer? Better be Ty.
Ricky Rubio (Timberwolves): He didnít make Vegas. Is Minneapolis in October on the horizon?
