Australian sensation Ben Simmons and former UCLA standout Lonzo Ball are the co-favourites to win the NBA Rookie of the Year award in the forthcoming season, according to Las Vegas odds makers. On Wednesday, the Las Vegas sportsbooks opened with Ball as the 9-5 favourite to win Rookie of the Year.

After a dominant performance during the NBA Summer League, it's clear Smith Jr.is turning heads and even his fellow rookies are impressed with what they've seen thus far. The NC State product received 25.7 percent of the vote, beating out Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball (20.0 percent) and 76ers floor general Markelle Fultz (17.1 percent).

With that said, the report pointed out that these surveys are not the most accurate way to project first-year success in the National Basketball Association. Mitchell, who was picked 13th by the Jazz, also played well in summer league, scoring 24 points per game.

Kris Dunn was the player voted most likely to win the award last season at 29 percent.

Magic Johnson and the Lakers fan base are certainly hoping that they picked right with the No. 2 draft pick this best summer, and if he continues to improve, it looks like they may have a future franchise star.
