Who will play major minutes

OK everyone, the arguments have all been made, we're debated the relative merits of every player, their cousins and their dogs. We've watched the tapes, gotten cross with each other and are all climbing the wall in anticipation. We still have a few hours before the real action begins and tomorrow at this time we will have some new shiny presents to play with .

Since we already know who will be chosen by whom, perhaps we could take a few minutes for a diversion before everything is finalized. So the question is this: who among the first round draft picks will be playing major minutes in their first year? For arguments sake lets say "averages 24 minutes or more and plays half his teams' games". As a reference, there were seven such players last year. If you drop the requirements to 20 minutes, there were five additional qualifiers last year. I'll start this off with the lowest hanging fruit; Anthony Davis.
