RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

The Warriors' decision-makers are relieved and happy. In particular, head coach Steve Kerr and organizational consultant Jerry West, who were not on board with trading Thompson to land power forward Kevin Love last summer. At that time, Thompson had an elite skill of three-point shooting and was beginning to expand his game, but the team was hot to add Love. The basketball decision-makers won out, and the organization held on to Thompson, extending his contract another four years. Thompson rewarded the franchise with the best season of his four-year career in Oakland. He was named to his first All-Star team and had career highs in every major offensive category. Thompson averaged 21.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2. 9 assists per game while making 239 three-pointers and shooting 46 percent from the field and 44 percent from three-point range. All while playing 32 minutes per game, four minutes fewer per game than he averaged the two previous seasons. Less was certainly more with Thompson. Hidden within those offensive numbers was better two-point shooting and more trips to the free-throw line. And it wasn't just the offense; Thompson's been an under-the-radar defender, but the nation saw evidence of that in 2014-15 when he averaged a career-high 1.1 steals and 0.8 blocks per game. He returns as Golden State's starting two guard.

2014-15

Thompson remains a Warrior after speculation that he might be part of a deal to land Kevin Love, but the Thompson lovers in the front office won out. Now, the onus is on Thompson to prove his backers right. The fourth-year guard shot 44 percent from the field and 42 percent from three-point range last season, bettering the numbers he put up the season before. In 81 games, he averaged a career-high 18.4 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 35 minutes per game. Thompson showed more consistency from night to night, adjusting to hands in his face while getting to the rim more often. He increased to 2.3 free-throw attempts per game while shooting 80 percent from the line. That's not a lot of freebies, but it was the second straight season with increased attempts. It's a sign the jump-shooting Thompson is attempting to diversify his attack. But jump shooting is still how Thompson earns a living. His 223 three-pointers made were second in the NBA. Defensively, he's improved since his rookie year, though he's not elite. We don't see much changing in 2014-15. The lone significant backcourt addition for the Warriors, Shaun Livingston, will see most of his time backing up Stephen Curry at point guard. Thompson has broadened his fantasy production since entering the NBA, but he's still pretty much a one-trick pony. That trick, his three-point shooting, just happens to be elite.

2013-14

Thompson was able to improve his overall production during his second season with the Warriors, raising his per game scoring (16.6), rebounds (3.7) and assists (2.2) while only noticing a slight decline in his shooting percentages. Already regarded as one of the league's best three-point shooters, the potential exists within Thompson to light it up on any given night, though consistency issues seem to have dogged his development at this stage of his career. There were 16 instances in the regular season in which he failed to reach double-figures in scoring, capping most of his fantasy utility on those particular nights since he's not a standout contributor in any other counting stats category. The offseason acquisition of Andre Iguodala muddles the Warriors' picture a bit on the wing, as Thompson, Iguodala and promising second-year swingman Harrison Barnes all bring intriguing skill sets to the table. Although it may contribute to a slight decrease in minutes for all three parties, the arrival of Iguodala, a top-flight defender on the wing, should allow Thompson to focus on what he does best: shooting. With Stephen Curry continuing to command the Warriors' breakneck offense, Thompson should come close to, if not surpass, the 6.4 threes per game he attempted last season. An increase on the 40 percent mark from three-point land he posted last season would vault him further up the shooting guard rankings as well.

2012-13

The midseason trade of Monta Ellis opened the door for Thompson, who averaged 17.0 points and two three-pointers per game after the All-Star break. In leagues that take into account shooting percentages, Thompson provided quality returns, shooting a sublime .440/.397/.867 across the board. As he enters his sophomore campaign, the biggest challenge for Thompson will be finding his way with a slew of returning players in the mix. Thompson’s ascension came mostly while the Warriors were without the services of Stephen Curry (ankle injury), Andrew Bogut (ankle) and to a lesser extent, David Lee (groin). With those players back in the fold, and the addition of Harrison Barnes in the draft, Thompson probably won’t have as many touches on offense as he did in the waning months of last season. However, he still seems destined to be undervalued by those who glance solely at his overall statistics from last season, which are skewed downward from when Thompson was riding the pine early in his rookie year. He’ll need to bring up his assist and rebound totals while maintaining his late-season scoring numbers in order to take the next step, but Thompson certainly has the potential to raise his game in 2012-13.

2011-12

Thompson has been impressing early on in training camp, and head coach Mark Jackson vows the rookie will play. How much playing time can we expect with Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry around is a good question. At this point, he’s third in the guard rotation and has the size (6-7) to be a matchup problem for most twos. He could also get some minutes at small forward but is more of a shooting guard at this stage of his career. Thompsons comfortable handling the ball and setting up others, though his ability to score in a variety of ways means he’ll be filling it up as the Warriors’ main scoring option off the bench. His defense is not quite there yet, but he’s not alone in that respect on the Golden State roster.
