RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

The Jazz acquired Foye in hopes that he will step in and play a role similar to the one they hoped Devin Harris would play last season. Foye is a guard with size who can do multiple things. He can run an offense, score, and is a decent defensive player. He has been both a starter and a valuable bench option in the past, but will get the opportunity to start with the Jazz in 2012-13. His shooting percentages have been almost as good from behind the arc as overall from the field. Expect Foye's numbers to be slightly better than the 11.0 points, 2.2 assists and 0.7 steals per game he averaged in 2011-12.

2011-12

Foye has developed into a bench player who never quite delivered on his hype. He showed some flashes last season after Eric Gordon went down with an injury. But with the addition of Chris Paul and Chauncey Billups, Foye will have a hard time getting significant minutes.

2010-11

Foye was signed to a two-year contract in the offseason, and he’ll serve as the team’s primary backup at point guard and shooting guard. Unless Baron Davis or Eric Gordon falls to an injury, Foye’s minutes and contributions will be limited.

2009-10

There is a chance Miller, and not Foye will end up in the Wizards' starting lineup but likely it will be Foye. Foye is coming off his best season as a pro and is certainly an upgrade over the incumbent starting shooting guard Stevenson as he is a better scorer and just as good defensively. Starting Foye would allow the Wizards to have two backcourt starters that are interchangeable between point and shooting guard.

2008-09

Billed as a point guard, Foye is able to handle both guard spots and was an effective scorer down the stretch last year after returning from a knee injury. He’ll team up with newly acquired sharp shooter Mike Miller to bring defenders away from big man Al Jefferson down low. Unlike Miller, Foye is a good perimeter defender, though he’s a little undersized against the league’s bigger twos. Based on his strong finish (14.9 ppg and 5.2 apg in March and April), Foye is the leading candidate to start at point guard, but Sebastian Telfair is still around. Whatever happens, there are no expectations for this team beyond getting better. Players like Foye, who haven’t established themselves yet, will get an opportunity to play, so there’s some upside here, especially in the scoring, 3-point and free-throw-percentage categories.

2007-08

The shakeup in Minneapolis leaves Foye in charge of the offense. Gone are Mike James (Houston) and Troy Hudson (buyout), meaning Foye becomes the full-time point guard. He’s ready for the role, but didn’t play a whole lot of it last season and has a new bunch of players to get used to. He was a good offensive player in a rookie season (10.2 ppg, 43.4% FG, 36.8% 3pt), where he mostly played off the ball. Initiating the offense with several new teammates is another matter entirely. Expect a steep learning curve for Foye, but as the point guard of the now and the future, he’ll get plenty of playing time. Sebastian Telfair and Marko Jaric are the primary candidates should Foye fail.

2006-07

Fresh off leading the Reebok Vegas Summer League with 25 ppg on 53% FG shooting, while also grabbing over two steals and four boards per game, Foye enters this season as one of the favorites for Rookie of the Year. Foye is a lightning quick combo guard with the type of explosive penetrating offense that is tailor-made for the newly emphasized hands-off defensive policy in the NBA. Foye is also a strong rebounder from the guard position and has a reputation as a tough defender. That said, Foye will be fighting to earn minutes and shots from established NBA scorers Mike James and Ricky Davis and is likely to begin the season coming off the bench. Also, at only 6-3 and with short arms, it‘s unclear whether Foye can guard NBA shooting guards, and he has no real experience playing the point. Even with these concerns, Foye is an intriguing prospect with a lot of potential, and is worth taking a chance on in the middle rounds of the draft.
