2016-17 NBA Point Guard Rankings

All stats and records were updated during All-Star Break

4 of 22

34. Tim Frazier, New Orleans Pelicans

Frazier has shown signs of potential, especially after New Orleans signed him to a 10-day contract last year to serve as Jrue Holiday‘s backup. The former Penn State point guard played in 16 games for the Pelicans, finishing the season averaging 13.1 points and 7.5 assists per game.

33. Matthew Dellavedova, Milwaukee Bucks

You can almost say that Dellavedova got the big contract deal with the Bucks thanks to his performance in the playoffs two years ago, after he took over for an injured Kyrie Irving. He’s turning the ball over more this year and isn’t shooting the ball like he did in Cleveland. Dellavedova is a good backup, but honestly isn’t good enough to be a starter in the NBA.

32. Austin Rivers, Los Angeles Clippers

You can no longer say that Rivers is only playing because his dad is the coach, after seeing him play this season. He’s seen his playing time go up, after Chris Paul went down with an injury. He’s also shooting 40% from the three-point line. Rivers is inconsistent at times and struggles with his decision making, but he’s still young and appears to be getting better by the day.
