RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

In Year 1 of his second go-around with the Bucks, Pachulia struggled through injuries to average 25 minutes in 53 games. The prolonged absence of Larry Sanders enabled him to make 43 starts, and he posted averages of 7.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, and a career-high 2.6 assists on the season. While Pachulia is an above-average passer and good rebounder given his relative lack of athleticism, he's an inefficient offensive player. A career 46-percent shooter, Pachulia shot a downright atrocious 43 percent from the field in 2013-14. That's less than one percentage point better than the kneeless Andrew Bynum. While he's still (somehow) only 30 years old, Pachulia hasn't shown signs of developing a more efficient offensive game. He's never topped 50 percent shooting in a season and doesn't really work outside the paint. Over 75 percent of his career field goal attempts have come from within 10 feet, which makes his low field goal percentage even more puzzling. What Pachulia does provide is stable rebounding, decent assist numbers and a high free throw percentage. While he's only a 74 percent career free-throw shooter, Pachulia converted at a career-high (by far) 85 percent clip last season. He'll return as the projected backup center behind Larry Sanders and could see his playing time regress back toward his career average (21 mpg) if the Bucks' frontcourt is able to stay healthy.

2013-14

Bringing in Pachulia on a three-year, $15.6 million deal was one of the more bizarre offseason moves around the league this summer. With a strong young core of Sanders, Henson, Udoh and Ilyasova already in place, Pachuliaís role will be a bit of a mystery. Still just 29 years old, he has plenty of tread left on the tires, but heíll likely spend much of the season in an underutilized bench role assuming Sanders stays healthy.

2012-13

Pachulia has been a very reliable backup center for the Hawks, but was pushed into a starting role for much of last season with Horford injured. He didn't provide much offense by averaging only 7.8 points, but he did post 7.9 rebounds per game and shot 49.9 percent from the field. He'll return to his reserve role this season and will have limited fantasy value as a result.

2011-12

Pachulia provides the Hawks with a veteran presence in the middle and could play his way into an expanded role this season. If Marvin Williams struggles at small forward or gets injured again, itís likely that Josh Smith would shift to small forward, Al Horford would shift to power forward and Pachulia would see increased minutes at the five. He doesnít provide a lot of fantasy value in his current role, but he might make his way onto the fantasy radar if the preceding scenario were to play out.

2010-11

Even when given minutes, Pachulia doesn't really do the things you need a big man to do. His rebound rates are acceptable, but not great; his shot-blocking is pretty meager for someone of his size; nor is his field goal percentage (career 46.0%) really acceptable for a big man. Also, he's probably not in line for much playing time. Not exactly a ringing endorsement, any of it.

2009-10

Horford's emergence has relegated Pachulia to backup duty, and he averaged just 6.2 points and 5.7 rebounds last season. He did start 26 games, but most of those came when Horford was injured, so that number will decrease this season assuming Horford stays healthy. Even as a starter, he didn't offer much fantasy productivity.

2008-09

Last season was a forgettable one for Pachulia, who battled multiple injuries throughout the season. Pachulia played just 15.2 minutes per game and with the emergence of Horford, Pachulia's days of near 30 minutes a night appear to be over in Atlanta. Pachulia is a decent scorer and rebounder but doesn't have any one skill set that makes him more than a key reserve for the Hawks.

2007-08

Pachulia proved himself worthy of fantasy attention last season, posting respectable averages of 12.2 points, 7.0 boards, and 1.1 steals per game on the season. He has a solid offensive repertoire, and his lack of athleticism on defense is partially hidden by the explosive shot-blocking capabilities of Josh Smith and, to a lesser extent, Shelden Williams. Pachulia could lose playing time this season with the addition of lottery pick Al Horford, the second consecutive top-five pick the Hawks have used on a big man. Nevertheless, his back-to-back years of solid production make him worth paying attention to in the late rounds of your draft.

2006-07

Pachulia answered a lot of questions last season about whether he could keep up his per-minute production once becoming a full-time starter. Although the Hawks added veteran Lorenzen Wright, that only means Pachulia has a capable veteran backup. And he'll need it because he was tied for fourth in the league in fouls per game (3.7). Despite the foul trouble, Pachulia managed to play 31.4 minutes a game while averaging respectable scoring (11.7 ppg) and rebounding (7.9 rpg) numbers, in addition to being one of two true centers to average more than a steal per game (1.1, Shaquille O'Neal was the other). Be wary of his field goal percentage (45.1% in 2005-06, 44.2% career), which is a category we've come to expect better of from a center, and the development of the younger players around him may mean less scoring chances. He's a decent option once the top centers are off the board.

2005-06

Slated as the starting center for the Hawks, Pachulia is known around the league as a hustle player who will get you some rebounds and points in a limited amount of time. Now that he is a full-time starter, we'll see how well he lasts for an entire game, and whether he can continue putting up numbers at the same per minute ratio.

2004-05

The Bucks seem to be pretty high on Pachulia and he could be a sleeper pick if he can get significant playing time. The Bucks would like to use him at power forward and maybe some at center. It's unlikely that he will start, but he should see some minutes off of the bench.
