When two of the four projected scorers are rookies you know you have a team that is rebuilding and not expected to win many games. AccuScore is high on Chris Douglas-Roberts because he is such a good transition player and with the speedy Devin Harris at PG he should get plenty of points off the break. Douglas-Roberts is also a good, hard-working, defensive player which should earn him more time than some other SF options on the team like Yi Jianlian. Vince Carter's tendency to miss a lot of games due to injury also opens up minutes at SG/SF for Douglas-Roberts. Rookie Brook Lopez is the one of the few low-post scorers on the roster, which is why he is projected to put up more points than other big men on the team. Do not expect these rookies to necessarily be averaging these numbers in the first month, but as the season progresses look for them to emerge.
