2013-14

As has been the refrain for most of his career, Dudley continued to do just about everything well but nothing particularly spectacular with the Suns last season, averaging 10.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 0.9 steals while showing reliability from the field (47 percent) and from three (39 percent). What was perhaps most notable about Dudley's season was a nearly four-minute per game decline in playing time, an especially surprising development considering the Suns lacked any standout wing players. Though it looks as though the Clippers will insert Dudley as their starting small forward, the move to Los Angeles won't necessarily bolster his chances of gathering further playing time, as the Clippers boast arguably the deepest roster in the NBA. Coach Doc Rivers figures to regularly rotate reserves Matt Barnes, Jamal Crawford, Antawn Jamison and Willie Green into action with presumptive wing starters Dudley and J.J. Redick, undermining each player's chances of reaching 30 minutes on a consistent basis. As a result, Dudley's counting stats figure to take a hit, making his fantasy value rooted primarily in his strong shooting marks. With the luxury of working alongside Chris Paul, Dudley could have a chance at approaching the superb 46 percent accuracy from three-point range he displayed in 2009-10 working with another one of the game's better passing point guards in Steve Nash.

2012-13

Dudley took some small steps forward in his first season as a full-time starter, averaging career highs in points, rebounds, assists and field goal percentage. Dudley seems like the type of player that won’t ever blossom into a star, but he doesn’t have any major red flags in his game. His three-point shooting took a small hit last season, but since he’s shooting 40.9 percent for his career, there’s really not too much reason to complain about the decline. What is worth wondering is the extent to which Dudley’s accomplishments were a product of playing with a pass-first point guard in Steve Nash. With Nash headed to the Lakers this season, new signee Goran Dragic will likely call his own number on offense more often than Nash, but should still get his teammates involved in a similar fashion. While there may be some hiccups in the two players coalescing initially, Dragic and Dudley figure to eventually get comfortable playing alongside each other after the first few weeks of the season. While Dudley isn’t expected to assume a higher scoring load, it wouldn’t be shocking if he posts slight improvement in several categories once again, as it doesn’t appear that he’ll be heavily challenged for playing time.

2011-12

Dudley was carried in and out of the Suns starting lineup, filling in whenever someone went down with an injury and then selflessly returning to a bench role. With Vince Carter’s contract status up in the air due to the lingering collective bargaining situation in the NBA, it’s anticipated Dudley will claim the starting shooting guard for the Suns this year. Although he played most of his games as Grant Hill’s backup at small forward last season, Dudley was also used as the starting shooting guard in 15 contests. In those games, he averaged 16.3 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.7 three-pointers, 2.1 steals, 0.4 blocks, and 1.2 turnovers in 34 minutes, and did all that while shooting 52 percent from the field and 46 percent from beyond the arc. If he were able to average those same stats across the course of an 82-game season, Dudley would be one of the better small forwards in the fantasy game.

2010-11

One gets the sense that the Suns acquired Dudley (during the 2008-09 season, along with Jason Richardson) just to test their ability to turn literally anyone into a perimeter threat. Consider: in four years at Boston College, Dudley shot only 36.5 percent from behind the shorter NCAA three-point line. In his first NBA season, with Charlotte, he shot only 9-of-41 on trey balls, and only 12 percent of his total shots were of the three-point variety. Then, in December of 2008, he was sent to Phoenix and immediately became a bomber, hitting three times as many long balls as the season before in only half the time. Last year, he improved even more, hitting 1.5 threes at a 45.8-percent rate. With Grant Hill and Jason Richardson continuing to man the wings, and Josh Childress and Hedo Turkoglu now in the fold, it's unlikely that Dudley surpasses last season's 24 or so minutes. As a result, he's only useful if you're seriously short on threes.

2009-10

No player enjoyed the Suns' midseason coaching switch more than Dudley. Acquired as a spare part in the Jason Richardson deal, Dudley found himself getting a regular spot in Alvin Gentry's rotation after Amar'e Stoudemire's injury and responded with 8.3 points and 4.0 boards in 20.5 minutes a night through March and April. With Stoudemire back and Earl Clark now around to fight for the same backup minutes at small and power forward, last year's kick to the finish will probably represent a high water mark for Dudley's time in Phoenix.

2008-09

Dudley’s the type of player that can find a significant role in Brown’s rotation, using his high basketball acumen and penchant for team play at both ends of the floor. He’s not terribly quick, but uses positioning well on defense. He can pass a little, score a little, rebound a little, but will be fighting for limited backup minutes with Adam Morrison behind Gerald Wallace at small forward. He could be a nice reserve on fantasy teams if he’s getting 25 minutes a night, but will need an injury to get that kind of run.

2007-08

The 22nd pick in the draft, Dudley was an outstanding college player who might be a man without a position in the NBA. Although he's smart and has great instincts, he may be too small (6-7, 225) to play power forward and not quick enough to play small forward. But he's known as a winner and good team player, so he's got value, though it may not be realized this season.
