Dave Berri in his Wages of Wins blog takes a crack at extrapolating the future of last years rookies based on their first year performance. The numbers look good for Tyrus and mixed for Thabo.
He also hammers Adam Morrison, which I think is a little unfair based on his role and the much larger amount of minutes he was played. Comparing Morrison to Balkman, a guy who played fewer than half the minutes and was only asked to rebound and play defense isn't the best comparison. However, if Morrison was that bad, it makes you wonder why they put Morrison out there so much.
