He's more like Darren Collison. His passing/vision isn't elite, which is what Rondo is known for.

That said, I like the kid and think he has a future in the NBA.

What makes him better than Roddy Beaubois?

Doesn't really count as a German since he is black.

If he can play like Roddy B played his first NBA season, he'd be a great pick up (but that probably won't happen). He probably has a Darren Collison ceiling. He's no Rondo, and I doubt he'll ever be.

Agreed. Weak draft class to begin with. The most hyped player coming in (Noels) will be out out for a significant period of the season. Ben M. will rot in Sac. Dennis (according to scouts) has elite speed, handle, floor vision, and defense. Unlike Rondo, Dennis can also hit uncontested jump shots. In a weak year, he could be in position to steal the ROY (so long as Jeff Teague is let go)

Roddy was an outstanding player who had a fantastic rookie year until he unfortunately became plagued by injuries.

On his wiki, it says his dad is German. But I haven't seen it if he's actually Aryan-looking.

but then again, there are plenty of black/ half blacks from France.

Rookie of the year? Maybe a bit too much. I'm from Germany, and dude can play. He had a very solid season in the German league, but it's not like he's ready to immedeately destroy NBA defenders. As a backup he can contribute right away though, will become a good 2nd string PG at least.

His passing is neither Rondo-like nor a weakness. But definitely a more talented playmaker than someone like Collison. Might be his best case scenario...Darren Collison with better defense and passing.

Hopefully he won't suck.
We could use some help at point guard. Teague is inconsistent, but developing. Harris will be gone. Louis Williams is really a shooting guard.

He played for a very bad team in a bad league and still didn't dominate and you think he will be rookie of the year ?

Well, it was a very bad draft, so who knows

I don't think this year's class is that bad actually. Maybe no potential superstars, but quite a few solid players that can contribute right away.
