ESPN Insider's David Thorpe debuts his Rookie 50 rankings this week and -- surprise, surprise -- Boston's Brazilian import (via Spain) Vitor Faverani emerges at No. 4.

A snippet from Thorpe: "Faverani continues to impress with his solid rebounding numbers and good perimeter shot with 3-point range... He blocked four shots [vs. Minnesota] and is averaging over one block per game. He's the rare big man who can rebound, shoot from distance, and block shots well."

As for Boston's other rooks, Kelly Olynyk checks in at No. 13, while Phil Pressey lands at No. 28.
