RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

A lot of the hype surrounding George this year is based on his impressive postseason, where he went toe-to-toe with LeBron James at times in the Eastern Conference finals. His averages of 19.2 points, 7.4 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.8 three-pointers in 19 playoff games should certainly peak the interest of fantasy owners for what may lie ahead, but he was seeing 41 minutes per game in the playoffs, compared to 38 mpg in the regular season. The excitement for a budding superstar whose best seasons are almost definitely ahead of him is understandable. But for a guy who will get a first-round grade from many experts, it should be noted that he only shot 42 percent from the field last year. That's not bad for a mid-round scorer, but there's a significant gap when considering George versus other studs who will be available at the end of the first round. The good news is that his 2.2 three-pointers per game and 81 percent free-throw shooting last season will help to make up for his lack of efficiency overall on offense - at least to this point in his career. There's no doubt that he has room for growth in points (17.4 ppg), assists (4.1 apg) and blocks (0.6 bpg), but owners who take him should be confident in blanket improvements for George in his fourth season, if they plan to take him with their first pick on draft day.

2012-13

George grew both as a player and in the literal sense in his sophomore campaign, as his statistics improved across all categories after he grew two inches during the offseason. George finished with averages of 12.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.4 three pointers per game. It was on the defensive end where George really left his mark, as his rangy 6-foot-10 frame created matchup problems for opposing guards, resulting in George collecting 1.6 steals and 0.6 blocks per game. If there is a nit to pick with George, itís that he noticeably regressed in the postseason. Despite receiving roughly four more minutes of action per game in the playoffs, George provided only 9.7 points per game on a feeble 38.9 percent shooting from the field. Fortunately for George, heís still just 22 years old, and part of his postseason struggles can be attributed to inexperience. More importantly, George is still bigger than any guard in the league, and should see his rebounds, steals and blocks per game increase with the added minutes heís expected to receive this season. Georgeís only real threat for playing time is Gerald Green, a former first-round pick who returned to the NBA last season with the Nets after a three-year layoff. Green may provide more offensive potential than George, but the identity of this Pacers team is rooted in defense, and George is a pivotal part of that mission.

2011-12

George was used as the teamís starting shooting guard down the stretch and in the playoffs last season, but his role is complicated by the Pacers acquisition of George Hill. Hillís exact role was not announced before teams were given a hush order at the onset of the lockout. Through 19 games as the teamís starting shooting guard, George averaged 7.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.7 three-pointers, 1.1 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.4 turnovers in 24 minutes. His skill set is similar to Danny Grangerís, leading many to speculate that the Pacers are open to trading their franchise player. Regardless of Grangerís fate with the team, it appears Indiana is committed to using George as a starter on the wing. He should contribute in three-pointers, steals and blocks if given enough minutes this season, making him useful due to his versatility.

2010-11

George is Indianaís highest selection in years and will be given a chance to earn minutes right away. Heís an athletic scorer, but loves to shoot from the perimeter, especially the 3-ball. Thatís something coach Jim OíBrien wonít discourage, but George tends to fall in love with the outside shot, when he could just as easily outrun defenders to the basket. Shot selection and decision making are the concerns entering his rookie season. The Pacers would be wise to develop George alongside Darren Collison and Danny Granger.
