Still very early and players and situations change my potential busts are Darius Garland and Cam Reddish.
Early for sure, but this list seems virtually arbitrary. Nunn started strong but has fallen way back. Barrett isn't playing well at all. White is even worse. Paschall is way too far down the list. Where's Terance Davis, who's killing it? Where's Cody Martin, who's also killing it? Both Clarke & Marko Guduric are playing a hell of a lot better for Memphis than Morant is so far. P.J. Washington should be much higher on your list. &, of course, that's a homer rating for Rui.
For guys who've played over 100 minutes, raw productivity, independent of position, the list should be Clarke, Bitadze, Terance Davis, Washington, Martin, Fernando, Rui, Cam Johnson, Paschall, Guduric & you-pick-him as the top 10.
Taking position into account (guards put up lesser raw numbers), a better list would be: Clarke, Davis, Martin, Guduric, Washington, Tyler Herro, Rui, Nunn, Carsen Edwards, & Johnson.
Minutes are too small to mean anything: a week ago, Bruno Fernando looked like an incredible steal. Right now, he looks like a blown pick. Means nothing either way.
