2021 Fantasy Outlook
After Bertans' best NBA season yet in his first year with the Wizards, the Latvian struggled in what was an underwhelming 2020-21 season following the signing of his five-year, $80 million contract extension. During the 2020-21 season, the 28-year-old averaged 11.5 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 25.7 minutes. Bertans saw his shooting percentage from the field drop from 43.4 percent to 40.4 percent and his three-point shooting percentage fell from 42.4 percent to 39.5 percent. His defense also slipped as he went from 1.3 steals-and-blocks last year to just 0.8 last season. This upcoming season, Bertans will have more competition for his role as the Wizards added Kyle Kuzma and rookie three-point shooting star Corey Kispert. Teammate Deni Avdija will also be fully healthy and could take away minutes from Bertans. With Russell Westbrook now in Los Angeles, the Wizards lack a strong secondary scorer which is where Bertans can find a role. After a down-year assisting the ball and scoring, the Wizards will need their depth players to step up this season and Bertans is one of those players that has the ability to have the occasional big scoring night. Although he'll likely be drafted in the later rounds of fantasy drafts, Bertans has a interesting ceiling and the potential to score 15 or more points a game consistently. But Washington's added depth probably means a decrease in total minutes. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Davis Bertans was born in 1992 in Rugjiena, Latvia. Bertans' father was a professional basketball player and his mother was a high-level rower. Davis' older brother, Dairis, appeared in 12 games for the Pelicans during the 2018-19 NBA season. A childhood wood-cutting accident cost the "Latvian Laser" part of the ring finger on his right hand, which is his shooting hand. Bertans played for the Latvian National Team at EuroBasket 2011 and 2017. In 2011, his national team production was modest. But in 2017, Bertans generated 14 points, three rebounds and two assists per EuroBasket game. Fans can follow Bertans on Twitter (@DBertans_42). Bertans started his professional basketball career at 15 years of age during the 2007-08 season for the ASK Kadeti II team of Latvia's LBL3. For the next two seasons, Bertans played for BAA Riga of Latvia's second level league. During those two years, he also played briefly in Latvia's top division, first with ASK Riga and then with BK Keizarmezs in late 2009. The sharpshooting Latvian started the 2010-11 season with BK Barons, but in November signed a multi-year deal with Union Olimpija, a Slovenian club in Ljubljana. He appeared in 10 Euroleague contests during that season and averaged roughly 3.0 points and 0.5 three pointers per game. In the summer of 2011, Bertans was drafted by the Pacers with the 42nd overall pick, but his rights were traded right away to the San Antonio Spurs -- along with Kawhi Leonard -- for George Hill. In the 2011-12 season, Bertans played in 23 games for Union Olimpija before signing a 3.5-year deal with Serbian club Partizan Belgrade. Bertans tore his right ACL in June 2013 during the Serbian League finals. The injury forced Bertans to miss nine months of play. In July of 2014, Bertans signed a three-year deal with Vitoria of the Spanish ACB league. Over 22 Euroleague games with Vitoria, Bertans averaged 11.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.3 three-pointers over 22 minutes of run. In March of 2015, still with Vitoria, Bertans once again tore his right ACL, signaling the end of his European playing days. He started the 2016-17 season in the NBA with the Spurs.

ANALYSIS
Bertans has recorded double-digit points in two straight games including three of his last four. The sixth-year forward finished as Dallas' third-leading scorer as Luka Doncic and Jalen Brunson combined for over half of the team's points.

FDallas Mavericks
February 11, 2022
Bertans will join a Dallas team ranking in the bottom-third on the league in three-point shooting. He will likely inherit a share of Kristaps Porzingis' now-vacated role, after the two were included in a swap at the trade deadline, via Tim MacMahon of ESPN.
ANALYSIS
Bertans broke out for Washington during the 2019-20 season, averaging 15.4 points on 42.4 percent shooting from beyond the arc in 29.3 minutes per game across 54 appearances. Despite being amid a three-year annual downturn in decreasing three-point efficiency, Bertans was decent last season prior to being unincorporated throughout 2021. The Mavericks essentially chose Bertans and Spencer Dinwiddie as an improvement to their roster over Kristaps Porzingis, as financially this trade was a wash. Bertans contract has an early-termination option in 2024-25, but the 29-year-old will remain on his $80 million deal with the Mavericks until then -- at the earliest. Maxi Kleber currently leads Dallas in three-point shooting with a 37.1 percent average, indicating that a role exists for Bertans to fill should he be able to bounce back.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
In his fourth season in the league and his first on a new team, Bertans had a breakout campaign with the Wizards. He saw 29.3 minutes per game and was entrusted to launch at will from beyond the arc, averaging 15.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.7 threes (42.4 percent) and 1.7 assists. He was one of the best sources of threes in fantasy, and his proficiency from the free-throw line (85.2 percent) was also a boost for fantasy managers. Washington went all out to keep the free agent, and Bertans is back with the team on a five-year, $80 million deal. The 28-year-old should occupy an extremely similar role this season, though could find more open jumpers given that new point guard Russell Westbrook should be a great source of drive-and-kick offense. Bertans ranked 75th in per-game production last season, and that's an appropriate range to draft him this season.
Bertans was traded to the Wizards this offseason after spending his first three seasons with the Spurs. He had a minimal role as a rookie, but got more playing time in each of the next two seasons as his game developed. Bertans was a key reserve for San Antonio last season, averaging 8.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.9 threes in 21.5 minutes per contest -- all career highs. He shot a career-best 42.9 percent from three and has shot better than 37.0 percent from long distance all three years in the NBA. He's likely to backup No. 9 overall pick Rui Hachimura at power forward, but Bertans has a great chance of seeing quality playing time off the bench as he can play small forward in certain lineups. The best fit for the 6-foot-10 Bertans, however, is as a floor-stretching four -- a role he could fill immediately. More minutes could certainly lead to increased production, as Bertans has averaged 14.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.1 threes per 36 minutes in his career.
Bertans' second campaign with the Spurs was once again set in a deep reserve role. The 6-foot-10 big man averaged 5.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 14.1 minutes, while most notably providing a floor-stretching presence with his ability to knock down the deep ball. Bertans finished with an average of 1.2 three-pointers at a 37.3 percent clip from deep. Despite playing just a minor role up until this point in his career, the Spurs still like his upside and opted to invest in Bertans once again this offseason with a two-year, $14.5 million extension in July. The 25-year-old's return puts him in a prime position to secure his most significant role to date, as the Spurs traded away superstar Kawhi Leonard and also let Kyle Anderson walk in free agency. That opens up a bunch of minutes at the two forward spots and Bertans should be one of the main beneficiaries as a result. Who, exactly, will start in the frontcourt is unclear, but Bertans is for sure behind Rudy Gay in the pecking order, who can also play both forward spots. Still, his contract suggests he's going to see a fairly sizable uptick in role and production, so look for career numbers across the board.
After being selected with the 42nd overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, Bertans finally was brought to the United States this past season on a two-year, $1.4 million contract. Bertans ended up playing in 67 games, posting averages of 4.5 points and 1.5 rebounds across 12.1 minutes. For the most part, he was kept in a deep reserve role and while he did show some upside as a three-point shooter (39.9 percent), the addition of Rudy Gay to the Spurs severely complicates his path to playing time. It will likely be another developmental season for Bertans, as he should just fill in as depth behind the likes of Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge, Rudy Gay and potentially Kyle Anderson at the forward positions.
