Shooting Guards

1) Stephen Curry (PG/SG) – A completely reasonable first-overall pick for those not willing to gamble their season on AD’s health. Steph’s playoff schedule is superior to Davis’ and is coming off a year in which he was significantly more valuable on a cumulative basis than Davis. With the Spurs, Clippers, and Rockets all significantly improved, it’s unlikely that the Warriors’ run away with West once again. This could lead to an increase in the MVP’s relatively low 32.7 MPG. 4.0 3PG is not out of question this season. Curry averaged 4.0 3PG over the last three months of the regular season and 4.7 3PG during the Warriors’ championship run.

2) James Harden (SG/SF) – While Harden is clearly behind Davis and Curry in terms of 9-cat production, he is a legitimate option at the top of the draft in 8-cat. In 2014-2015, Harden was superior to Davis on a per game basis in 8-cat  and posted nearly identical value to Curry. Ty Lawson is not a threat to Harden’s numbers. Lawson posted a usage rating of 20.9 in his final year in Denver. That is low for a starting point guard. The offense will continue to run through Harden and his 2014-2015 averages of 27.4 PPG and 7.0 APG are very repeatable.

3) Kawhi Leonard (SG/SF) – I’m down on most of the Spurs’ roster this season due to their poor playoff schedule and the increased potential of Pop doing Pop things. However, Kawhi’s upside is too high to ignore. The former finals MVP is a true nine-category player. Leonard posted positive value last season in every category except assists. He’s not a perfect pick at the end of the first round due to his limited impact on both percentages, but Kawhi is a great cornerstone for those looking to punt points or assists.

4) Jimmy Butler (SG/SF) – With Fred Hoiberg now on the sidelines in Chicago, expect Butlers league leading minutes (38.7 MPG) and per game production to drop. In my pre-free agency top 40 I had Jimmy in the middle of the second round. Then the 2015-2016 schedule announced that the Bulls will play 13 games over the three fantasy playoff weeks. The fantasy playoffs are as much about quantity as they are quantity. While I expect second-round value from Jimmy this season, his playoff schedule allows for the possibility of top-5 production when it counts the most.

5) Klay Thompson (SG/SF) – Thompson is a tricky player to rank as his top-10 production last season was due to his contributions in two of the easiest stats to find; points and threes. Drafting is not just about finding the best value at each pick. Fit is at least as important as value in H2H. Klay is a solid bet to return top-15 numbers but make sure your team building strategy is rock solid before picking him. Thompson gives you less in the more difficult categories to find than most players available in this range.

6) Paul George (SG/SF) – I expect some rust and early on in the season George likely won’t see close to 36.2 MPG that he averaged in 2013-2014. However, Coach Vogel has stated that the usually deliberate Pacers (19th in pace in 2014-2015) will play much faster this season. Their trade of Roy Hibbert to the Lakers confirms that the Pacers are serious about the change in style. The faster pace should help all of the Pacers and offset any dips in efficiency that George may experience. I wouldn’t expect second-round returns early in the season, but as the focal point of what should be an improved offense, George should be close to his old self by the time the fantasy playoffs roll around.

7) Gordon Hayward (SG/SF) – Hayward’s three-point shooting normalized last season and we got the breakout that we were expecting in 2013-2014. The Jazz’s top option posted top-40 numbers in 2014-2015 that included 19.3 PPG, 1.6 3PG, 4.9 RPG, 4.1 APG, and 1.4 SPG. 20/5/5 is not out of the question this season. Hayward’s across-the-board production makes him a great fit for almost any build.

8) Kyrie Irving (PG/SG) – I’m putting Kyrie here until we learn more about his timetable. There were rumors that we may not see Irving on the court until January. However, those rumors were quickly shot down by the Cavaliers. Either way, Kyire is looking at an extended absence to start the season. The Cavaliers have already stated that they plan on cutting both Kyrie and LeBron’s minutes. Kyrie is an excellent per minute player (11th best per minute player in 2014-2015), so a drop in minutes is not a death blow but it does likely drop him from the late-first round to the late-second round on a per game basis.

9) Trevor Ariza (SG/SF) – The transition from the Wizards to Rockets went very smoothly for Ariza. Ariza posted third-round value for the second season in a row but his final ranking could have been even better if not for an early season shooting slump. Over the first three months of the season Ariza shot a putrid 37.7% from the floor. He was much better as the year went on and shot 45.2% over the last two months of the season which is in line with his shooting numbers in Washington. With the addition of Ty Lawson, I expect his FG% to be much higher than last seasons 40.3%. Ariza’s 2.4 3PG and 1.9 SPG give the swingman both a very high floor and a top-25 ceiling.

10) Nicolas Batum (SG/SF) – Batum had a torn ligament in his wrist last season and it showed. His FG% dropped for 46.5% in 2013-2014 to 40.0% in 2014-2015. His usage dropped from 16.5% to 14.6%. This lead to Batum barely posting top-70 numbers on the year and being difficult to own at different points in the season. Ignore last season and draft Batum with confidence. The Frenchman is still only 26 and will have a larger role on offense in Charlotte than he did in Portland. He is another player who is an especially excellent fit for the punt points build (9.4 PPG in 2014-2015, 13.0 PPG in 2013-2014), but he fits nicely with almost every strategy. Batum provides above-average production at his position in rebounding (5.9 RPG), dimes (4.8 APG), and blocks (0.6 BPG).

11) Eric Bledsoe (PG/SG) – Since coming to the Suns, Bledsoe hasn’t been the per minute beast that he was with the Clippers’ but has still be very good. Bledsoe gives you out-of-position blocks (0.6 BPG) and is a very strong rebounder for a point guard (5.2 RPG). His numbers didn’t change much after the Dragic trade but he did see a small uptick in minutes from 33.9 MPG before the trade to 35.8 MPG. Even small increases in minutes can lead to solid bumps in value. Bledsoe should return at least top-50 value for the third season in a row.

12) Danny Green (SG/SF) – Green will be slept on this season due his to low PPG (11.7).  To be honest, I’m nott sure that I’m not sleeping on the Spurs’ sharpshooter. Green was a top-10 per minute player last season and averaged a droolworthy 2.4 3PG, 1.2 SPG, and 1.2 BPG. His upside is through the roof. Unfortunately, due to Popovich refusing to play any of his starters heavy minutes, that upside is unlikely to be realized. Green is a dream pick for those punting points. Without points, Green provided first-round value last season and was a top-5 per-minute player.

13) Kyle Korver (SG/SF) – Korver has posted top-40 value three years in a row and is an excellent target in the middle rounds. I find that most drafts turn into a game of chicken with Korver. He’s always ranked too low and everyone knows it. Don’t be afraid to go a round earlier than what feels right for Korver. His threes (2.9 3PG) are obviously the main attraction, but the three-point bomber is also a sneaky source of out-of-position blocks (0.6 BPG).

14) Victor Oladipo (PG/SG) – Oladipo is the opposite of Dirk. The young Magic shooting guard has been a poor per-minute player in his two years in the league, failing to crack the top-110 players on a per game basis since entering the league. Luckily for Oladipo, per minute numbers don’t matter much when you play 35.7 MPG. The former Hoosier posted top-60 per game numbers last season with averages that included 17.9 PPG, 4.1 APG, and 1.7 SPG. New coach Scott Skiles can be difficult to read and fantasy managers will want to play close attention to the Magic’s rotations in preseason. The addition of rookie Mario Hezonja puts some of Oladipo’s minutes at risk.

15) Khris Middleton (SG/SF) – With Jabari Parker returning to the Bucks lineup and Greg Monroe now manning the post, many are questioning whether Middleton can keep repeat last season’s top-50 finish. I think he can. Middleton will see his FGA drop this season but he should also see the quality of his looks increase. The breakout 3-and-D specialist is already an efficient player (46.7 FG%) and should see an increase in his 1.4 3PG.

16) Goran Dragic (PG/SG) – It’s too bad all the rumors surrounding Dwyane Wade turned out to be bogus. If Wade had left South Beach, we’d be looking at a top-30 option. Now that Wade and his absurd 34.7% usage are back with the Heat, Dragic is no more than a run-of-the-mill, mid-round point guard. Dragic just won’t have the ball in his hands enough to produce early-round value. While his upside is capped by his teammates, solid point guard stats that come with 50.1% shooting from the field are always useful.

17) Monta Ellis (PG/SG) – Ellis has been extremely consistent over the past four years. Over that span the newest Pacer has never been better than a top-50 play but has also never been worse than a top-65 play. His floor is higher than most players in this range, but his upside is also lower. His line is fairly limited and Monta only provides positive value in points, assists, and steals. Expect his previously decent FG% (44.5%) to drop now that he is in Indiana. He’s a decent mid-round target for those punting FG%.

18) DeMar DeRozan (SG/SF) – The 2014-2015 season was a tough one for DeRozan. The shooting guard struggled to stay healthy and didn’t really find his groove until the final stretch of the season. DeRozan’s final ranking of 82nd in 9-cat leagues was underwhelming but he did post top-50 numbers over the last two months of the season. DeMar is an ideal fit for the punt threes build as his 20.1 PPG is achieved almost entirely inside the arc (0.4 3PG). The Raptors’ leading scorer is also one of the better middle-round sources of FT% impact (83.2 FT% on 7.2 FTA).

19) George Hill (PG/SG) – Hill is another player who struggled with injuries last season but was phenomenal when he was on the court. Hill posted top-35 per game numbers in 2014-2015 but only managed to suit up 43 times. Even if he remains healthy this year, he’s extremely unlikely to come anywhere near last season’s averages of 16.1 PPG, 1.6 3PG, and 5.1 APG. With Paul George returning and Monta Ellis joining the Pacers, there won’t be enough ball to go around. The last time Hill played beside George and another high usage player was 2013-2014 with Lance Stephenson. That season Hill only barely cracked the top 100 on a per-game basis. He’s improved as a player so he should be much better than that, but his teammates limit his upside.

20) Robert Covington (SG/SF) – Covington’s role is up in the air despite a surprisingly strong sophomore year. Covington put up averages that included 13.5 PPG, 2.4 3PG, and 1.4 SPG last season but is not guaranteed to start due to the Sixers wanting to improve their starting lineup’s defense. Regardless of where Covington begins the game, he should see heavy enough minutes to post at least top-80 value. The Sixers have next to nothing on the wing and Covington is clearly their most talented swingman. Like Kobe, he is a nice target for those punting FG% (39.6 FG%).

21) Bradley Beal (SG) –  Would the real Bradley Beal please stand up. Beal has been spectacular in both of his playoff appearances and utterly average during the regular season. His struggles with both consistency and injuries has stopped the fourth-year player from ever being better than a top-85 player. That should change this season. With Paul Pierce in a Clippers uniform and with the Wizards likely to trot out more small-ball lineups this season, Beal is in the best of position of his career to put up big numbers. There’s not a lot of out-of-position contributions here and his efficiency is below average (42.7 FG%, 78.3 FT%) but I would be surprised if Beal didn’t crack 2.0 3PG and average close to 18 PPG in 2015-2016.

22) Wes Matthews (SG/SF) – The track record of players coming back from a torn Achilles is not good. Kobe is the most recent high-profile example. These days, a torn Achilles is actually a more difficult injury to return from than a torn ACL. Don’t expect another top-40 per game finish as Matthews is likely to start slow and have his minutes monitored. However, despite the intensity of the injury the former Blazer is recovering from, his floor is fairly high due to his elite three-point shooting (2.9 3PG).

23) JJ Redick (SG) – The sharpshooter was excellent in 2014-2015, posting top-60 numbers and averaging 16.4 PPG and 2.6 3PG while having a top-25 impact on FT% (90.1% on 2.6 FTA). Due to the Clippers’ new additions he’s unlikely to match that finish in 2015-2016, but if you miss out on Korver earlier in the draft, Redick is a fine consolation prize.

24) Reggie Jackson (PG/SG) – Jackson is the type of player that casual players overrate. While his popcorn stats are often excellent (17.6 PPG, 4.7 RPG, and 9.2 APG after the trade to the Pistons) he has a number of holes in his line that limit his usefulness. Despite those impressive popcorn stats, Jackson was only able to post top-90 value in his time with the Pistons due to his average threes (1.0 3PG), low steals (0.7 SPG), poor shooting (43.6 FG%), and high turnovers (3.5 TOPG). With Brandon Jennings returning at some point this season, Jackson’s ceiling is much lower than most assume.

25) Andrew Wiggins (SG/SF) – This ranking assumes that Wiggins will make a fairly large jump this season. The Canadian won Rookie of the Year but didn’t have much of an impact on the court or in the fantasy realm. Wiggins only posted top-135 value in his rookie year and struggled when Kevin Martin was in the lineup. His rookie year was up and down but his line does project as fantasy friendly. Wiggins has a shot at being a one three, one steal, one block player this year and will obviously post strong scoring numbers (16.9 PPG).

26) J.R. Smith (SG/SF) – You may never hire J.R. to be your life coach or teach your kids calculus but that doesn’t mean the man doesn’t deliver the fantasy goods year after year. Smith hasn’t finished outside of the top 100 since 2009-2010. Mo Williams is a threat to his minutes, but with how much the Cavaliers are likely to rest some of their older players and Kyrie Irving, Smith should be able to come close to matching the 29.7 MPG that he played last season. His 2.3 3PG and 1.2 SPG make him an absolute steal at his current ranking of 201 on Yahoo.

27) Kobe Bryant (SG/SF) – The Black Mamba looked pretty cooked in his 35 appearances in 2014-2015. The all-time great failed to post top-100 per game value due to his atrocious shooting (37.3 FG%) on massive volume (20.4 FGA). While that ranking and FG% are hard to look at, when on the court Kobe was still a top-30 asset for those punting FG%. Bryant still brings the heat when it comes to counting stats and his 22.3 PPG, 1.5 3PG, 5.7 RPG, 5.6 APG, and 1.3 3PG are a very nice addition to any team ignoring FG%.

28) Tyreke Evans (PG/SG) – Tyreke posted top-80 numbers last season but that was mostly due to Jrue Holiday missing over half the year with a stress fracture in his leg. Fortunately for Evans,  Jrue is still recovering from his stress fracture and is only expected to play 15 MPG until January. As long as Jrue is limited, Evans should be able to approach his 2014-2015 averages of 16.6 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 6.6 APG, 1.3 SPG, and 0.5 BPG. Those are very useful counting stats, but due to his below-average efficiency (44.7 FG%, 69.4 FT%, 3.1 TOPG) and lack of threes (0.9 3PG), his ceiling is only a top-70 play.

29) Wilson Chandler (SG/SF) – The Nuggets are in very rough shape right now with Chandler and Gallinari being the only proven scorers on their roster. While that is very bad news for the Nuggets, it can be very good news for fantasy owners. Chandler is coming off of a top-85 finish and somehow managed to play 78 games without spontaneously combusting. The injury-prone swingman has only missed less than 10 games in a season twice in his eight-year career. Chandler can outplay this ranking as he provides all-around production (13.9 PPG, 1.8 3PG, 6.1 RPG) but he does have a lower floor than most players in this range. Watch out for his poor FG% (42.9%) as it comes with somewhat high volume (12.5 FGA).

30) Brandon Knight (PG/SG) – The newly re-signed Knight’s final ranking of 55th overall is inflated by his time in Milwaukee. In the 12 games that Knight did play with the Suns, he failed to post top-200 value. Normally I wouldn’t read too much into such a small sample size. It usually takes some time for a player to adjust to a new team, especially when he’s changing positions. However, when you look at Knight’s history, it’s hard not to be worried. Excluding his time with the Bucks last season, Knight has been a very poor per minute player and poor fantasy option in general since coming into the league. Only once in his first three years has the former Buck managed to crack the top 200 on a per minute basis. The move to shooting guard also complicates things as Knight will undoubtedly see his career high 25.9% usage drop. Last season could prove to be a fluke and I wouldn’t touch Knight until the last three or four rounds of the draft. With his ADP likely falling inside of the top 70, I highly doubt Knight will be on any of my teams next season.

31) Dwyane Wade (PG/SG) – It feels strange ranking a player who is coming off a season in which he averaged 21.5 PPG, 4.8 APG, and 1.2 SPG outside of the top 100, but this is Dwyane Wade we’re talking about. Even before his per game numbers began to slip (Wade finished 96th-overall on a per game basis in 2014-2015), it was hard to justify spending an early, or even a mid-round pick on a player who is a lock to miss around 20 games. His inability to stay healthy and fading athleticism has led to major decreases in both his efficiency (47.0 FG%) and defensive stats (1.2 SPG, 0.3 BPG). Those numbers aren’t terrible, but they no longer make up for the holes in Wade’s line (0.5 3PG, 76.8 FT%, 3.4 TOPG). Let someone else deal with this headache.

32) Jarrett Jack (PG/SG) – The Nets giving up on Deron Williams was long overdue. With Deron now in Dallas, Jack steps into a starting role and immediately becomes a decent target for those who missed out on the inevitable point guard run that takes place in the middle rounds of every draft. In January, Williams had a stretch where he missed 12 of 13 games. Over that period, Jack stepped in and posted top-80 value. Top-80 may be a stretch due to some of the holes in line (0.5 3PG, 0.9 SPG), but the Nets’ new starting point guard should see major minutes and continue to be a sneaky source of FT% impact (88.1 FT%).

33) Kevin Martin (SG/SF) – Martin is A funny fit for the rebuilding Timberwolves but that hasn’t stopped the veteran from posting top-65 per game numbers in both his seasons in Minnesota. The problem is that per game numbers don’t matter if you’re never on the floor. Over his two years with the Wolves, the scrawny guard has missed 57 games. The Wolves haven’t been shy about resting their veterans at the end of the season, and with the young team likely to be out of the playoff race very early on, it’s hard to bank on having Martin’s 20.0 PPG, 1.9 3PG, and top-5 FT% impact (88.1 FT% on 4.9 FTA) in your lineup when it matters the most.

34) Joe Johnson (SG/SF) – The 34-year-old has aged fairly well, somehow managing to make the All-Star team in 2014-2015 and post top-95 fantasy numbers along the way. Johnson still provides owners with adequate points (14.4 PPG), threes (1.5 3PG), and assists (3.7 APG). Despite his advanced age, ISO Joe is still durable, only missing a total of five games over the past two seasons.

35) Lou Williams (PG/SG) – The reigning Sixth Man of the Year is a better bet for useful fantasy production than Jordan Clarkson and D’Angelo Russell as he’ll be the only one playing the majority of his minutes with Kobe on the bench. Don’t expect a repeat of 2014-2015’s top-75 finish as he won’t have the freedom to throw up as much junk as he did in Toronto, but the gunner should still provide above-average production in points (15.5 PPG), threes (1.9 3PG), and FT% impact (86.1 FT% on 4.9 FTA).

36) Paul Pierce (SG/SF) – Pierce, as we saw in the playoffs, still has something left in the tank. The California native posted top-115 value last season despite only playing 26.2 MPG. I expect his minutes to remain in that range as Coach Rivers will try to keep Pierce fresh for the playoffs. However, even with low minutes, Pierce should post top-100 per game value. What keeps him out of my top 100 is the inevitable rest days. Matt Barnes posted top-90 value last season in 29.9 MPG. While Barnes played more minutes, he’s not the player that Pierce is, even at The Truth’s advanced age. Pierce is also going from the 22nd-ranked offense that finished 18th in pace to the best offense in the league. Expect a rise in Pierce’s threes (1.6 3PG) and FG% (44.7%).

37) P.J. Tucker (SG/SF) – Tucker is continually underrated due to his lack of scoring (9.1 PPG) and has managed to return top-90 value two years in a row due his production elsewhere (1.1 3PG, 6.4 RPG, 1.4 SPG, 1.3 TOPG). TJ Warren will push him for the starting small forward role but expect the former Longhorn to come out on top in that battle as Tucker is by far the Suns’ best perimeter defender.

38) CJ McCollum (PG/SG) – McCollum is still ticketed for a bench role due to the arrival of Gerald Henderson but that doesn’t mean fantasy owners should shy away from taking a flier on the combo guard late. McCollum played heavy minutes over the final two weeks of the season and gave us a taste of what to expect in 2015-2016. Over that stretch, he posted top-40 value with averages of 16.0 PPG, 1.1 3PG, and 1.4 SPG on 51.1 FG%. That FG% is extremely unsustainable and it’s likely that McCollum will be a liability from the field (43.6 FG% on the year). There’s potential for a J.R. Smith-like line from the third-year pro.

39) Mo Williams (PG/SG) – Mo can play both guard positions and with Kyrie expected to start the season on the sideline, and Shumpert a good bet to miss some time at some point during the season, I expect Williams’ minutes to be high enough to allow him to flirt with top-100 value. Over the last two months of the season, despite coming off the bench for the majority of his games, Mo posted close to top-100 value with numbers that included 17.2 PPG, 2.2 3PG, and 6.0 APG. While he won’t come close to those scoring numbers and dimes in Cleveland, expect his poor efficiency (39.7 FG%) to rise due to the LeBron effect. Williams is an excellent grab at the end of the draft as he should be very valuable for the first month or so of the season.

40) Eric Gordon (SG) – Due to various lower body injuries, Gordon no longer has the athleticism that caused many to call him a future star. While his upside isn’t what it used to be, Gordon will be a key piece of what should be a much improved offense. Last season, under Monty Williams, Gordon posted top-115 value with averages of 13.4 PPG, 2.3 3PG, and 3.8 APG. Unfortunately, he is as injury prone as ever as he only played in 61 and 64 games over the past two seasons.

41) Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (SG) – KCP doesn’t provide the most varied line in the world, but not many players available this late in the draft do. The gunner is a solid source of points (12.7 PPG), threes (1.9 3PG), and steals (1.1 SPG), but that’s about it. KCP hurts you both from the field (40.1 FG%) and at the line (69.6 FT%) and doesn’t provide any boards (3.1 RPG) or dimes (1.3 APG).

42) Avery Bradley (PG/SG) – The Celtics combo guard is a great target for the punt assists build (1.8 APG) as he has point guard eligibility and provides the stats that those punting dimes need (1.6 3PG, 1.1 SPG). He doesn’t have middle-round upside due to how few categories he contributes in, but Bradley did produce top-100 over the last three months of 2014-2015.

43) Jamal Crawford (SG/SF) – The perennial Sixth Man of the Year contender has been a consistent fantasy asset since joining the Clippers. Last season’s 88th-overall finish was actually Crawford’s worst finish since arriving in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, things aren’t looking as rosy as they have in past now that Lance Stephenson and Wes Johnson are in town. Crawford will likely struggle to match last season’s 26.6 MPG and could end up being no more than a streaming option for those chasing points (15.8 PPG), threes (1.9 3PG), and FT% imapct (90.1 FT% on 3.9 FTA). What makes Crawford draftable is Stephenson’s unpredictability.  Doc Rivers apparently likes what he sees in Born Ready, but if Stephenson falls on face once again, Crawford would return to the role that allowed him to be so useful the past three seasons.

44) Jabari Parker (SF/PF) – Jabari is esentially a rookie this year and that allows me to drop my one of my favorite fantasy facts. Over the last six years, only two rookie wings have managed to post top-100 value (Kawhi Leonard and Landry Fields). Andrew Wiggins didn’t come close and I expect Parker to fall short as well. Like all rookies, expect Parker to struggle with efficiency both from the floor (47.3% in his last year at Duke) and at the line (74.8% in college). Parker also projects as a below-average three-point shooter this season and won’t contribute much outside of points and rebounds.

45) Bogdan Bogdanovic (SG/SF) – The 26-year-old sophomore finished his rookie campaign with a flourish, averaging 15.6 PPG and 2.4 3PG on 53.9% shooting from the field over his last eight games of the year. Those averages came in 29.7 MPG, a number that he should approach in 2015-2016 as Bogdanovich has all but been confirmed as the starter beside Joe Johnson on the wing. He doesn’t project to give you much on the defensive end (0.7 SP36 and 0.2 BP36) but those threes that should come on reasonable efficiency (45.3 FG%) will make the Croatian relevant in standard leagues all year long.

46) Gerald Green (SG/SF) – Dwyane Wade is a lock to miss large chunks of the season and Green will be the primary benefactor when the former superstar is in a suit. The athletic freak is only a year removed from posting top-70 value and managed to do so in only 28.4 MPG. He won’t see that kind of run when Wade is healthy, but even 25 MPG would make him relevant to standard league owners. Green is a potentially major source of points (22.0 PP36) and threes (3.4 3PG) available for next to nothing. Just watch out for his poor FG% (41.6%).

47) Tony Allen (SG/SF) – Allen’s steals (2.0 SPG) are what make him relevant in 9-cat leagues, but the elite defender also gives you above-average blocks (0.5 BPG) and FG% (49.5%) from the shooting guard position. There’s not much to say here. If you need a steals boost late, pick Allen.

48) Anthony Morrow (SG/SF) – Morrow was outstanding in limited minutes last season with Thunder. Over the last three months of the year, Morrow posted top-80 despite only playing 23.7 MPG. Those minutes look repeatable even with Kevin Durant returning to the lineup. He’s not a lock to start, but his 2.8 3P36 allow him to be effective in limited minutes.
