RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

The Pelicans are relying on Aminu to hold down the small forward spot on a team that has playoff aspirations this year, and he appears to have the talent to not disappoint. He has seen his minutes per game average increase by roughly five minutes per game in his last two seasons, getting 27 mpg in 2012-13. If he were to see a slight bump this season, the results could be fantastic for fantasy owners, as his per-36 minutes averages from last season were 9.7 points, 10.2 rebounds and 1.6 steals. Aminu is another good dark horse candidate to lead small forwards in rebounds per game, especially since the Pelicans may be going small this year, with Anthony Davis moving to center and Ryan Anderson playing a stretch four, which would leave plenty of rebounds for the 6-9 Aminu. Other than rebounding, perhaps the biggest improvement Aminu made from his second season to his third was shooting efficiency. In 2011-12, Aminu shot 41 percent from the field on 5.5 attempts per game, but last season he made 47.5 percent of his 6.2 shots per contest. He is average-to-above average in field-goal percentage, rebounding, steals and blocks, and he is below average everywhere else, so he makes for a nice option at the back end of drafts if your team has inverse strengths and weaknesses.

2012-13

Acquired last season, Aminu remains after the team decided to part ways with Quincy Pondexter. Aminu is coming off of a subpar year where he averaged 6.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and over 22 minutes a game – all higher numbers than his rookie year. Aminu played in every game last year, and earned more minutes and a slew of starts. With Anderson in town, Aminu will likely be relegated to the bench, but his familiarity of the system and a heavy rotation being used should see Aminu getting his playing time. In deeper leagues he may be valuable - if he takes a leap forward this year.

The newly-acquired Aminu enters New Orleans in a position battle with Quincy Pondexter for the backup small forward role. Aminu is coming off a productive rookie year where he averaged 5.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and over 17 minutes a game – all higher numbers in respect to Pondexter’s. Aminu also comes in more highly touted, being a top-10 pick a year ago. What Aminu has working against him is that he plays the same role as a fellow “young gun” and will be coming in without much of an offseason program with the Hornets. The likely situation will have Aminu being cycled into more athletic and smaller lineups.

2010-11

Aminu is the team’s small forward of the future, but his game is too unpolished for him to be asked to play meaningful minutes in the NBA this season. We could see him earn extended minutes in the second half of the season if coach Vinny Del Negro falls out of love with Ryan Gomes and the team is struggling to contend for a playoff spot.
