The year of player development for the Warriors has not resulted in many wins, but the growth of their rookies has been mostly impressive, particularly for forward Eric Paschall, and to a lesser extent, guard Ky Bowman.

First-round draft pick Jordan Poole has struggled mightily with his shot, but has shown glimpses of his potential with a pair of 20-point games.

For the first time in quite a few years, the Warriors are able to give their most inexperienced players ample playing time. This extended opportunity helps paint a picture of how Warriors rookies compare statistically against the rest of the rookies around the NBA.
