2014-15 Fantasy Basketball Outlook

Like Bismack Biyombo, but with more on the line, the former No. 2 overall pick is facing somewhat of a do-or-die year as the Hornets have the capability to exercise his option next offseason. However, depending on who you ask, the second-year forward hasn't completely been a...

2013-14

It's hard not to have some empathy towards Kidd-Gilchrist. He was drafted No. 2 overall, even though he can't shoot, and may not ever be able to shoot (more on this later). He was also drafted by perhaps the most depressing franchise in the league and was asked to step right in and improve the team. And he is also, by all accounts, a great guy and an extremely hard worker. Basically, by no fault of his own, he was put into a situation where he has almost no chance of being considered a good draft pick. There were plenty of rookies last year who were great to own, but MKG simply wasn't one of them. In his rookie campaign, Kidd-Gilchrist made 63 percent of his shots at the rim and 31 percent of his long two-point field goals (16 feet to the three-point line). He was terrible from everywhere else. From three-to-10 feet, he made 28 percent; from 10-to-16 feet, he converted 14 percent; and he hit on 22 percent of his three-point attempts. Overall, he was a 27 percent jump shooter during his rookie season. By comparison, Rudy Gay, who had one of the worst shooting seasons of his career last year, hit 36 percent of his jump shots, and Kevin Durant, who might be the best jump shooter in the league, hit 44 percent of his jumpers. Shooting is obviously not everything, but it's a pretty big thing. That isn't to say he'll kill your field-goal percentage, because he won't, he knows he's not a good shooter. But it does mean that it's hard to expect much more than the 9.0 points per game he averaged last year primarily on dunks and layups. Kidd-Gilchrist's hustle stats averaged out over 36 minutes look decent enough - 8.1 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 1.2 blocks per game - but he only played 26 minutes per game last season. There's a little upside here for defensive stats with increased playing time, but that's certainly not guaranteed.

2012-13

The No. 2 overall pick for the Bobcats in the 2012 NBA Draft should get plenty of opportunities to be one of the key contributors for Charlotte right out of the gate. Billed as an extremely hard worker, Kidd-Gilchrist will add fantasy value by his hunger on the glass and his ability to score in transition. The case could be made that he has the most fantasy upside of any rookie small forward. Nobody on the Bobcats roster has earned any status as a go-to option on offense, but that might not be MKG’s game right out of the gate. His jump shot is a bit unorthodox, but players like Shawn Marion have been able to thrive in the NBA on hustle and athleticism. There is time for his jumper to come a bit later. Ben Gordon, Gerald Henderson and Kemba Walker might not be good enough to discourage the rookie from trying to take over at points, and his ability to get to the line will also make him a viable scoring option in tight games. In keeper leagues, he has significantly more value, but he should be drafted in the middle-to-late rounds in almost all formats for the 2012-13 season.
