Rookie Profiles: NBA Draft Picks 11-20
June 24, 2016
NBA Senior Editor Adam Wolf, with help from the RW NBA Staff, provides outlooks for NBA draft picks 11-20.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
McRoberts had his 2014-15 season cut short after appearing in just 17 games for Miami after suffering a torn right lateral meniscus, so he did not have much time to display his effectiveness within Miami's rotation, even though he still managed to shoot 53 percent from the field and 42 percent from behind the arc in a limited sample size. Now, as he enters his ninth NBA season and his second under contract with the Heat, the former Duke Blue Devil is healthy and should have a more defined role within the rotation. McRoberts has turned into a stretch power forward and should give Miami good three-point shooting in the frontcourt rotation behind Chris Bosh. Overall, McRoberts should be not be expected to have a major offensive role with the team, as he has never been a high-volume scorer, but he will fill a need to stretch the floor should Bosh have to come out of the came at any point. In addition to his shooting, McRoberts is also a high-energy guy and can be an effective rebounder when he is at his best. In the end, the biggest question mark for the power forward will always be his health, as he has only had two seasons in which he has appeared in more than 70 games.
McRoberts agreed to sign with the Heat early in the offseason and will now spend his seventh season in the NBA under coach Erik Spoelstra. The 27-year-old was a crucial player for the Bobcats last season as he averaged 8.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 1.3 three-pointers in 30 minutes per game. He managed to stay relatively healthy in 2013-14 while playing in 78 games, and for all intents and purposes, it was the most productive season of his career in the NBA. Most notable was his spike in three-pointers, where his previous season best was only 0.4 per game as it jumped to a whopping 1.3 last season. Miami is hoping that McRoberts can continue this progression, as he's the likeliest candidate to start at power forward this season. The former Duke Blue Devil will be backed up by the capable but aging Udonis Haslem and will start alongside Chris Bosh at center. Since both McRoberts and Bosh can play either of the frontcourt positions and shoot the ball from deep, whether they slot into the four or five may not matter in the end. McRoberts will certainly get considerable time on the court this season, but he ultimately might give way to Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, and Bosh on the offensive side of the ball.
With the Bobcats' pickup of Jefferson and Zeller, McRoberts' playing time will drop considerably. However, expect him to be efficient when he is given the chance to play due to his impressive shooting percentage (.505) during his 2013 stint with the Bobcats and his rebounding.
McRoberts, a journeyman, is a tough, athletic option to keep on the pine. He is a veteran who doesn’t stand down to anyone, and reportedly has the highest vertical jump on the team. He will compete for backup power forward minutes.
McRoberts is not a stiff, as some might think, but he's not going to produce much in the way of fantasy numbers either due to a lack of playing time. He averaged 7.4 points and 5.3 rebounds in 22.2 minutes per game for the Indiana Pacers last year. Expect a similar output from McRoberts this year.
Like it can be said about any guy with height on the Pacers, a thin front court could be turn into an opportunity for McRoberts. He hasn’t shown much in his three NBA seasons, so we’re talking a long shot here. He’s a decent rebounder with some hoop skills, but needs to bring it every night -- even when he’s getting little run.
McRoberts is at the back end of coach Jim O'Brien's playing rotation, and he'll get further pushed back by the addition of rookie Tyler Hansbrough. He added 20 pounds of muscle in the offseason.
Another throw-in during the Pacers' offseason overhaul, McRoberts played in only eight games last year with the Blazers. He's capable of providing some defensive help in the interior, but that's about his upside for now.
McRoberts is a solid forward out of Duke who could potentially play some valuable minutes in his rookie year if injuries occur at forward. He can finish well around the basket and brings some toughness inside. He will play sparingly in his rookie year, though, and is not a fantasy option for this year.
