5) Rodney Stuckey, Detroit Pistons
Stuck between a team in the middle of rebuilding and competing Stuckey has been the one thing that hasn’t gone wrong for the pistons. He’s going to be their starting point guard for this upcoming season and many seem undervalue his play. He’s on a team with a bevy of scorers like Richard Hamilton, Ben Gordon and Prince. With a team that might actually compete in the Eastern Conference Stuckey is a point guard that will get undervalued making him a great sleeper pick for all owners. He can score and he can pass the ball compliment that with his speed and his ambition to cut to the rim he is our number 5 sleeper.
4) Aaron Brooks, Houston Rockets
Many people have this guy not even ranked as a top #15 point guard and that must raise an eyebrow. He’s Houston’s number one man right now to run the point ahead of Kyle Lowry. He scores and dishes the ball and with the big fellow Yao Ming healthy his numbers are only going to go up. Ignore the fact that he takes a lot of shots a game and you might have a point guard that gives you a lot more than you paid for.
3) Lou Williams, Philadelphia 76ers
Williams is one of those bright point guards that can play as the 2 guard as well. With his job in danger to Jrue Holiday a lot of people might have wrote this guy off already. The talent is still there and the price for this guy will never be too high, the only question is: is he a risk worth taking. He turns 24 and he has the offensive talent around him, it’s just a matter of putting all the pieces together.
2) Brandon Jennings, Milwaukee Bucks
Brandon Jennings is one of the point guards that really make you scratch your head. He doesn’t have a high percentage jumper and has all the ability to cut in and get things done. With that being said, he doesn’t all the time. This kid is young and he has all the potential to be this years biggest sleepers. On a decent Bucks team Jennings will have another chance to prove to the world he is as good as he is. He’s one of those on and off guys but if he can put it all together he will be a very good point guard.
1)Darrin Collison, Indiana Pacers
A fresh start in Indiana and no longer blocked by the best point guard in the league Collison has a chance of being the biggest sleeper pick. We saw him and his talent in small dosages last year and it was great. He was so good at times it made Hornet fans forget about Chris Paul, and that my friends takes a lot of skill. Collison could put everything together and be one of the top #10 point guards before the year ends. For all his talent and skill, I’m going to put him as the #1 NBA point guard sleeper in the league.
