RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Though knee injuries and a concussion limited him to 67 games last season, Covington asserted himself as the Sixers’ top threat from downtown once healthy, knocking down 2.5 treys per game while hitting them at a 35.3 percent clip. In addition, he established himself as more of a reliable defender, collecting 1.6 steals and 6.3 rebounds per game, both of which were improvements over his marks from the 2014-15 campaign. The rebounding spike may have been fueled in part by coach Brett Brown’s willingness to deploy Covington as a stretch four, where he was able to use his 6-foot-9, 215-pound frame to hold his own against bigger players. Although Covington proved to be a better fit at power forward defensively, he’ll likely have to spend even more time on the wing during the coming season, as Nerlens Noel, Jahlil Okafor, Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and Dario Saric figure to absorb the bulk of the minutes in the frontcourt. Those players, along with the offseason additions of guards Jerryd Bayless and Gerald Henderson, may result in Covington seeing a decline in attempts, but his dependable three-point shooting on a roster that’s generally lacking in that department ensures that he’ll have an important place in Brown’s rotation.

2015-16

At one time destined to live out his days in the D-League, Robert Covington was plucked from the Grand Rapids Drive by the 76ers in mid-November last season, weeks after the Rockets waived him, and the Sixers carved out a significant role for Covington during his sophomore season. Through 70 games, Covington averaged 13.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.4 blocks, and 2.4 three-pointers in 28 minutes per game. His reliance on perimeter shots, combined with constant defensive aggression leading to one of the league's highest rate of contested shots, diminished Covington's field goal percentage to 40 percent, but his silky shooting stroke yielded an 82 percent free-throw mark. Through 77 career games, Covington's 171 made three-pointers matched the Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard for most three-pointers at that point in their career. Covington's versatility allowed coach Brett Brown to use him at shooting guard, small forward, and power forward, and Covington was a staple in the starting lineup from mid-December through February, losing his stranglehold on the position when Jason Richardson returned from a two-year hiatus. The 24-year-old forward's contract this upcoming season is not fully guaranteed until January, but the development he displayed last season should be enough to help him reclaim the starting small forward gig.

2014-15

Covington didn't get a chance to play his way into a role during his rookie season, as he finished playing in only seven games with the Rockets. For the entire 2013-14 year, he finished averaging 2.3 points, 0.7 rebounds, 0.3 steals, and 0.6 three-pointers made, in five minutes per game. He also seemed to struggle during the summer league schedule this year, where he averaged a meager 7.5 points per game against lesser competition. Covington is going to have a tough time finding minutes this season, as the power forward position is stacked with bodies. Starter Terrence Jones is coming off a solid second season in the league, along with holdover Donatas Motiejunas, and newcomers Jeff Adrien and Joey Dorsey taking up reserve minutes. He'll even have to keep Rockets' first-round draft pick Clint Capela from taking any playing time that may have been left over, so it's going to be a long, uphill battle for Covington this season if he hopes of having any role whatsoever. Covington may end up spending time in the NBA D-League with the Rockets' affiliate in order to get him more experience and more time to improve his game.

2013-14

An undrafted rookie, Covington missed much of his senior year at Tennessee with a knee injury, but proved himself healthy with a strong summer league showing. He's a long shot to see major minutes given his lack of bulk (6-9, 215).
