RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Crowder's NBA career blossomed when he was traded to the Celtics last December. Coach Brad Stevens gave Crowder the chance to demonstrate, front and center, his defensive prowess, outside shooting, and team-oriented play. The pinnacle of Crowder's renaissance occurred during the first round playoff series versus Cleveland. Crowder started and was charged with guarding LeBron James one-on-one. Crowder held his own, much to the pleasure of the Boston Garden crowd, before suffering a season-ending knee injury. With Boston, Crowder averaged 24 minutes, 9.5 points, 1.7 three-pointers, and 1.0 steal per game. He also started 17 games. For 2015-16, it's unknown whether Crowder or Evan Turner will start at small forward for Boston. Crowder is still undergoing precautionary rehabilitation but says he believes his left knee is now 100 percent. The Celtics rewarded Crowder's end-of-season heroics with a new five-year deal. Clearly, he is a part of Boston's future plans. If Turner is traded, as some have rumored, than Crowder would have a very clear path to increased minutes.

2014-15

Jae Crowder is entering his third season in the NBA. He suffered a bit of a sophomore slump last year as he averaged 4.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 16 minutes per game. Crowder played in 78 games and finished the year shooting 44 percent from the field on 3.8 attempts per game and 75 percent from the free-throw line on 0.8 attempts per game. He impressed in the D-League last season posting back-to-back triple doubles. Unfortunately, he hasn't displayed the same playmaking ability in the NBA. He's earned a reputation as a solid defender, but he's been a streaky shooter on the opposite end of the floor. The addition of Chandler Parsons will keep Crowder out of the starting lineup, and he will have to compete with new teammates Al-Farouq Aminu and Richard Jefferson for playing time. Consistency will be key if Crowder wants to be a regular member of the rotation, but he's fighting an uphill battle on a crowded Dallas depth chart.

2013-14

Crowder earned playing time during his rookie season with a hard-nosed style of play. However, hustle and energy don't always carry over into fantasy. Crowder has to improve on his shooting numbers from last year when he shot 38 percent from the field.

2012-13

Of the three rookies on the Dallas roster, Crowder is the most likely to see meaningful minutes. His energetic style of play earned him an All-Star nod in Summer League, where he averaged 16.6 points per game. Coach Rick Carlisle has been known to keep rookies on a short leash, however, so he’ll have to earn his playing time.
