Top Rookies in NBA 2K23

Shortly after the best players in the game were revealed, the highest-rated rookies in NBA 2K23 were announced. However, who is the best rookie in NBA 2K23? Here's the list of the five highest-rated rookies in NBA 2K23:

1. Paolo Banchero - 78 OVR

Paolo Banchero

Our number one best rookie in NBA 2K23 is also the number one overall pick in this year's NBA Draft and has a 78 OVR rating. Paolo Banchero, a power forward from Duke University, was explosive all year long in his only year in college. In his one-and-done season with Duke, Banchero averaged 17 ppg, with formidable shooting splits. So, seeing him at the top of the list is no shock.

2. Jabari Smith Jr. - 78 OVR

Jabari Smith Jr.

Jabari Smith Jr. was another name who appeared to be a lock to go first or second overall in the draft but somehow slid to the third spot with the Houston Rockets. Nevertheless, his outstanding college career and NBA-ready attributes have landed him one of the better NBA 2K23 ratings. Although parts of his game will take some time, his scoring ability will be able to cover up his rookie shortcoming quite nicely.

3. Chet Holmgren - 77 OVR

For Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Chet Holmgren, the No. 2 pick came in at 77 overall — the third-best rating behind Paolo Banchero and Jabari Smith Jr. at 78 overall. Holmgren will be out for the NBA 2022-23 season with a Lisfranc injury in his foot that happened during a Pro-am game.
