RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

There was no outlook written for K.J. McDaniels.

2015-16

After joining the Rockets through a trade from the 76ers in February, McDaniels finished the season averaging 1.1 points, 0.5 rebounds, 0.2 assists, 0.2 blocks, and 0.0 steals in three minutes per game through 10 contests. McDaniels didn't have much of an opportunity to play being buried on the depth chart behind James Harden, Trevor Ariza, and Corey Brewer last season. He did show some potential, however, in his time with the Sixers, where he averaged a more impressive 9.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 blocks, and 0.8 steals in 25 mpg through 52 games. McDaniels' Sixers stat-line must be the potential the Rockets saw in him as he signed a three-year, $10 million contract. The second-year player is more of a physical wing and has some defensive potential but is a subpar ball handler and needs to work on his abilty to create his own shot. Considering that he is so far buried on the depth chart, and the addition of free agent Ty Lawson moves him down even further, unless McDaniels breaks out in the preseason, he doesn't have much fantasy value in standard leagues.

2014-15

K.J. McDaniels is entering his rookie season in the NBA, having been drafted with the 32nd pick this June. In his final season at Clemson, his junior year, McDaniels averaged 17.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.1 steals, 2.8 blocks, and 1.2 three-pointers made in 34 minutes per game through 36 games played. He shot 46 percent from the field on 12.6 attempts per game, 84 percent from the free-throw line on 5.1 attempts per game, and 30 percent from three-point territory on 3.8 attempts per game. McDaniels is a natural fit at small forward, measuring in at 6-6, with a 6-11 wingspan. Last season, he won ACC Defensive Player of the Year and first team All-ACC honors. McDaniels is an athletic player who specializes in defense, highlighted by his impressive per-game steals and blocks numbers from college. He played well during the NBA summer leagues but was far from being a standout performer. On offense, McDaniels is a strong transition scorer and can do well in an up-tempo offense, which makes him a good fit in Philadelphia, but he's also a below-average perimeter shooter, which may not matter much since 76ers coach Brett Brown did little to discourage inefficient outside shooters last season. He should earn minutes at both shooting guard and small forward, competing mainly with Tony Wroten and Alexey Shved at shooting guard, and Hollis Thompson and the oft-injured Jason Richardson at small forward.
