If he stays healthy and Demar leaves next season, I say Derrick White.


AkaiShuichi24

Keldon to the moon too


Pr0tanoia

Keldon if Rudy Gay leaves too


zikik

Next year I'll remember this on draft day: "fantasybball said keldon is the new kawhi lets gooo"


[deleted]

Lmao


YoungFlexibleShawty

Jakob has severely stunted Keldon's rebound and defensive contributions.


Right_Importance2174

This is true.


dalejm

Came on this thread to say Keldon


[deleted]

No stocks


jellyfamjohn

How is Dejounte not mentioned, I think he gets the biggest boost if Demar leaves. He’ll be the leader of team along with Derrick ofc


RiiCreated

Absolutely! The guy put on an absolute fantasy GEM stat line clinic the past two weeks! Insane production across literally every single category. And get this, LESS than 1 turnover per game during that stretch. So sad to see him potentially gone this Fantasy season :(

Sam Dekker on his 10-day contract and here's why...

AkaiShuichi24

Dude got a lot of potential


CloudCity2025

I see him hitting the second year wall pretty hard


sendphotopls

care to elaborate?


CloudCity2025

Well this is just my feeling but his value comes from super high usage rate with lots of low percentage shots and the insane athleticism, so I just think defenses will be able to adjust quite a lot. Guys with a deep bag of tricks and skills are the ones tend not to struggle much in their second NBA year imo, unless they can just overpower their defenders. I don't think Ant is particularly skilled in the NBA, I am higher on Lamelo for next season personally


Jokic2021MVP

May be unpopular but I agree. I can see him being a low 20s scorer but beyond that not huge upside in other parts of his game. I really like to avoid guys who's main attraction is their scoring, like Beal, Booker etc. Just too inconsistent for my taste.


deleted_my_account

To be fair, Beal has been great this season!


[deleted]

His shot selection is trash. Needs to improve


blondechinesehair

Best interview in the NBA as well


WestsideMoonWalker

Darius Garland could potentially be that type of guy. OG Anunoby as well. Mikal Bridges is very solid. Cole Anthony, Okeke, WCJ, and the rest of the Magic crew could be quite fun. Poku has fun upside. Theo Maledon could make a 2nd year jump. Xavier Tillman is a dark horse piece. Okongwu may grow into a role that allows him to thrive. Lots of young guys with good breakout potential. I play deep leagues, so some of these guys may not be 1st rounder quality, but will provide excess value and could be good late round dart throws. As far as 1sts go, Embiid is my guy. Love him.


Palumbo79

Yeah I could see Garland and OG being sneaky mid round picks that can produce early round values(2nd-3rd). Both are very underrated. OG imo can average 20-7-3 with 2.5 3s, 2 stls next season(his offense has really picked up the past few weeks).


WestsideMoonWalker

OG seems like a good bet to produce top 30 value next year, as far as upside picks go. Garland is just a stud tbh. Watching Cavs games, his game is very advanced for a 2nd year point guard. His game is also perfectly suited for fantasy, and I'd say he compares very favorably even to someone like Ja Morant.


gold3esea

D'Aaron Fox, Michael Porter Jr, Lamelo Ball


[deleted]

Yup


robmorren2

Lamelo. This coming from a guy who has admittedly hated on all the Ball brothers. Lamelo is gold for Fantasy hoops.


khmeat

Only way you get guy like melo is draft too early. I’d love to have him and Zion but with their clout they are gonna go too early next year. But they could end up even being worth it still


Separate-Statement-9

I started in a keeper this season so I drafted z early by most standards, third round. Laughing now, he's been amazing. Growing in defensive stats every day it seems.


i_shruted_it

Where do you think his ADP ends up? I'm going to reach for him big time just like I did MPJ this year. Lamelo is so much fun to watch and I was lucky to draft him this year (solely because Josh Lloyd said his name for pts leagues). I started watching every Hornets game this year because he was must see TV.


folklore33

Might be bold but I think he finishes top 30 next year in 9 cat


hidey_ho_nedflanders

Jokic isn't on your list as a #1 pick?


AkaiShuichi24

Oh yeah I forgot Jokic


Ok-Management-6771

DeAaron Fox, his improvement has been insane


CamazotzisBatman

JJJ, White, Malachi Flynn, WCJ, Gafford because the latter draft picks can win you the league.


RunnerUpKing

It’ll be interesting to see how Bryant and Gafford work


YoungFlexibleShawty

On the plus side, Gafford won't need many minutes to contribute.


eldono69

Jonathan Isaacs might be a good sleeper aside from the usual suspects. Hali probably. Basically rookies coming into their sophomore season


QuestFor6ix

Isaac is a great pick - I think he surprises a lot of people next year


[deleted]

[удалено]


[deleted]

No way. He’s been out all year


nonufwiendz

For first round im thinking Jokic or Giannis. Honestly Luka feels like a late first round pick at best


[deleted]

Bad % for luka hold him back


MooseHorse123

Miles Bridges


Both-Organization-27

I don’t know if this counts but Jonathan issac. Could have a Myles turner like season if healthy


UziLevert

Rob williams and mpj are gonna be huge. Prob not first round value ahah but if u manage to get them late in drafts next season they can easily be league winners imo


Orthatworks14

Halliburton


PrettyFarFriggnLeft

Obviously some rookies will take leaps in their second years (lamelo, edwards, Hali) but when I’m drafting I tend to look for third year breakouts. Right now I think the best options for that are Garland, MPJ, Hunter, and RJ.


iamgarron

Michael Porter Jr is a 2nd round pick next year Healthy tatum makes another leap


ostrow19

Rookies may be outside the scope of this question, but if Cade Cunningham goes to a team that gives him the keys to the offense he’s going to be an absolute beast in fantasy


AMTS1999

Isaiah Stewart if Plumlee leaves. Gafford is Lopez and/or Len leaves


sendphotopls

Lu Dort!


blondechinesehair

All aboard the Dort Train! Choochooo!!!!


deleted_my_account

Dort will be a 3 point machine next season, calling it now


cjsrhkcjs

As much as he burned me this season, I'd love it if I could grab AD between the end of 1st/start of 2nd (or even later in more casual leagues!). Although that might be the recency bias talking since he came back for me right when I needed him most. I'd also give guys like Gafford/Poeltl a long hard look.


weedpal

AD hard pass 1st round. He burned me so good this year I won't ever forget.


No-Suggestion-8962

I agree He proved this year that his stats won’t always make up for his injury history and that took away any chance of me drafting him at all next year (assuming he goes in a normal place) Kinda guy that I want to be someone else’s problem, like Kawhi and PG and Embiid Plenty of talent in the top rounds why take a risk that’s for later rounds when you can afford to draft a bust


HarisBosch

Oh god please let my league members think like this and let me get ad in the second round :)


BlackMamba1021

Same for me. Question tho, do u believe AD will be around in the late 1st rd? Cuz if he is, i think its a steal


YoungFlexibleShawty

Gafford Anunoby Moses Brown Malachi Flynn Isaiah Stewart


papayon10

Miles Bridges


blahblahquesera

Mpj, og, garland, isaac, kpj, lamelo, derrick white

Richaun holmes

RJ Barrett


ZeroWan

I think Christian Wood will be a solid top 10 guy next season. In deeper leagues, I think Poku can explode. He had a 6 3pm game and a 6 Blk game this year as an 18 year old rookie, there's huge potential there.


YoungFlexibleShawty

If it wasn't for the Thunder actively tanking I could see guys like Moses and Poku thrive.


vismundcygnus34

Isaiah Beef Stewart


No-Suggestion-8962

Idk about you guys but I’m dreading wiseman late, the guys a physical beast and I truly believe he’s going to be an all nba player one day Not saying I’m going to Hail Mary reach for him but if he’s there I’m taking him


[deleted]

Hell wash out of the league before hes all nba


lunes_azul

It’s worth keeping an eye on CJ McCollum and Norman Powell. One of them will be leaving Portland at the end of the year, and might get an opportunity as ‘The Guy’ elsewhere.


rustyrainbowz

Immanuel Quickley! I mean besides Lavert and Dinwiddie, maybe Devin Vassell, Kira Lewis


Rough-Risk-7518

First round pick still has to be Luka for me, the fact I got him this year was a blessing but I feel like he's only gonna get better next season. I believe Jokic is a close second since he's just so amazing this season though. As for guys to looks out for, gotta be Ant ed, Zion and sleepers like OG, Keldon johnson and have a feeling MPJ is gonna blow up
