2021 Fantasy Outlook
Olynyk was on his way to a typical season with the Heat -- 10.0 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists in 26.9 minutes -- until he was dealt to the Rockets in the trade that landed Victor Oladipo in Miami. Once in Houston, Olynyk was given a starting job and the biggest role of his career for his final 27 appearances. In 31.1 minutes per game, he averaged 19.0 points on 55/39/84 shooting, 8.4 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.4 steals. Notably, against the 76ers, he posted a 27-point, 11-rebound, 8-assist, 3-block, 1-steal game. After making his debut for the Rockets on March 27, Olynyk was the fifth-best player in fantasy in terms of total production -- an absolutely shocking number that made him the best late-season pickup. Olynyk doesn't figure to have quite that level of production in 2021-22. In the offseason, he signed a three-year, $37 million contract with the Pistons. It's not immediately clear if Olynyk will start or come off the bench, but there's a chance he sees minutes in the upper-20s. If that's the case and coach Dwane Casey trusts Olynyk to handle the ball even close to what he saw in Houston, the big man should finish inside the top 100. Olynyk has proven capable of that in the past. In 2017-18, he saw just 23.4 minutes per game and ranked 95th, and he ranked 64th last season in 28.5 minutes. Drafting him in the sixth round would be aggressive, but optimistic fantasy managers have reason to explore drafting him after that. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

Olynyk moved from Canada to Gonzaga to play college basketball. The 6-foot-10 forward spent two seasons primarily coming off the Bulldogs bench. He started four games as a sophomore and put up 5.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per contest. The seven-footer scored in double digits in five games. After the season, Olynyk agreed to redshirt in the 2011-12 season to improve his game for his junior season. The year off seemed to work and the forward returned to win the West Coast Conference (WCC) Player of the Year. He led the Zags with 17.8 points to go along with 7.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists. The team went undefeated in the conference play and won the WCC Tournament. In two NCAA Tournament games, Olynyk averaged 23.5 points and 9.5 rebounds, but the Zags, the top-seeded team in the West Region, suffered an upset against Wichita State. He decided to forgo his senior season and declared for the 2013 NBA Draft, where he was chosen with the 13th overall pick by the Dallas Mavericks.

Agrees to deal with Pistons

Olynyk and the Pistons agreed to terms Monday on a three-year, $37 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
After splitting last season between the Heat and Rockets, Olynyk will head to Detroit to join Cade Cunningham on one of the up-and-coming teams in the Eastern Conference. Olynyk played a key depth role in Miami for the last few seasons, but he was able to spread his wings in Houston after coming over midseason as part of the Victor Oladipo trade. Across 27 games in a Rockets uniform, Olynyk averaged 19.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.8 three-pointers per contest while putting up a 55-39-84 shooting line. Those numbers likely won't be sustainable, but Olynyk projects to compete for the starting center job after Detroit parted ways with Mason Plumlee via trade last week. Olynyk's primary competition for minutes will come from second-year big man Isaiah Stewart, who led all rookies in total blocks and total rebounds last season.

Past Season Summaries
2020

Olynyk began the season with the Heat. He appeared in 43 games (38 starts) for Miami and saw 26.9 minutes per game. The big man averaged 10.0 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists while shooting 43.1 percent from the field, 31.7 percent from three and 77.5 percent from the free-throw line. Two standout performances include March 14 in a win over the Magic, where Olynyk posted 18 points (6-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks in 34 minutes. The other occurred during a 10-point win over the Pelicans on March 4, where Olynyk recorded 18 points (7-8 FG, 4-5 3Pt), 10 rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 37 minutes. On March 25, Olynyk was traded, along with Avery Bradley and a first-round draft pick to the Rockets for Victor Oladipo. Olynyk made his Rockets debut March 27 in a win over Minnesota, posting 16 points, four assists, four rebounds and three steals in 25 minutes. He saw an increased role while in Houston, starting 24 of his 27 appearances and averaging 19.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.4 steals in 31.1 minutes. He shot 54.5 percent from the field, 39.2 percent from three and 84.4 percent from the charity stripe. His best performance of the season occurred with the Rockets, which was May 5 against the 76ers. In 39 minutes, he posted 27 points (9-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 11 rebounds, eight assists, three blocks and one steal with just one turnover.

2019

The 2019-20 season marked Olynyk's third campaign with the Heat, and he appeared in 67 games (nine starts). In his 58 games off the bench, he averaged 8.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists. During his nine starts, Olynyk averaged 9.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.1 steals. In a win over the Pelicans on Nov. 16, Olynyk swiped a season-high three steals, adding 13 points and five rebounds. Nine days later in a win over the Hornets, the big man secured a season-high 16 rebounds in addition to 15 points, two steals and one assist. That was one of his three double-doubles. On Jan. 27 during a win over the Magic, Olynyk blocked a season-high three shots, adding eight points, three rebounds and two assists. In a victory over the Warriors on Feb. 10, the Gonzaga product handed out a season-high 11 assists, also providing 12 points, six rebounds, one steal and one block in 21 minutes. In the NBA bubble on Aug. 1 during a win over the Nuggets, Olynyk scored a season-high 20 points, adding five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 24 minutes. During the first three rounds of the playoffs against the Pacers, Bucks and Celtics, Olynyk averaged 6.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.0 assists. During the NBA Finals against the Lakers, Olynyk averaged 11.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists. His best playoff performance was Game 2 against Los Angeles, where Olynyk recorded 24 points (9-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds and two assists.

2018

During his second year in Miami, Olynyk set career highs in games played (79) and starts (36). He continued to stretch his game out, taking a career-high 4.0 threes per game -- a full attempt higher than his career average (3.0) -- and making them at a 35.4 percent clip. With 1.4 successful shots from downtown per game, he tied his career high from the 2017-18 campaign. On the whole, Olynyk posted 10.0 points per game, averaging double digits for the fourth time in his six NBA seasons. He added 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists per contest. Olynyk went on a bit of a hot streak in late February into early March, scoring at least 20 points in four of six games. That culminated in a Mar. 6 performance against Charlotte in which he made a season-high five threes on seven attempts, leading the Heat with 22 points and pulling down 11 rebounds. During that stretch, he also recorded a season-high 28 points in a Feb. 25 loss to the Suns, adding 10 rebounds. All in all, he picked up four double-doubles on the season. Olynyk actually attempted more 3-pointers (319) than twos (245) for the first time in his career. The Gonzaga product made multiple threes on 33 separate occasions and scored in double digits 35 times. He also improved his free-throw shooting, making a career-high 82.2 percent of his shots from the charity stripe.

2017

After signing a four-year contract with the Heat, Olynyk filled an important bench role in his first season outside of Boston, playing the most games (76) and averaging the most minutes (23.4) of his career. He also cracked the starting lineup for 22 contests, another personal best. Not surprisingly, Olynyk's increased playing time resulted in a variety of career-high averages, including points (11.5), rebounds (5.7) and assists (2.7). Olynyk also contributed a career-best 1.4 threes per game, making 37.9 percent of his attempts from behind the arc. Overall, the former lottery pick shot the ball well, converting 49.7 percent from the field -- the second-highest mark of his career. The big man from Canada notched seven double-doubles on the season, including a 25-point, 13-rebound performance in a win against Detroit on Jan. 3. He set a new career high in scoring Dec. 20 against his old Celtics teammates, hitting a career-high six threes en route to 32 points with seven rebounds. In another stellar performance, Olynyk racked up a career-high 10 assists while scoring 22 points in a victory over the Knicks on Mar. 21. Olynyk's versatile all-around game was on display in a win over Denver on Mar. 19 in which he racked up 30 points, pulled down eight rebounds and handed out six assists, adding four blocks and a steal. The Gonzaga product was also a key contributor during Miami's first-round playoff exit against Philadelphia. Over five games, he averaged 12.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists while shooting 47.7 percent from the field.

2016

Olynyk played 75 games and started six in his fourth NBA campaign. The center averaged 9.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 20.5 minutes per game for the Celtics. He set a new career high by shooting 51.2 percent from the field. The 25-year old missed the first six games of the campaign while recovering from a shoulder surgery. His season debut came Nov. 9, when he scored two points and grabbed six rebounds in 26 minutes against the Wizards. Olynyk delivered his top performance of the season Jan. 13, posting 26 points on 9-of-11 shooting with eight rebounds and three assists against the Hawks. The center scored in double digits 33 times, notching two double-doubles in the process. Boston made a deep playoff run, going all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals before falling to the Cavaliers. Olynyk averaged 9.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.8 blocks across 18 postseason contests. He blew up for 26 points on 10-of-14 shooting in Game 7 of the second round against Washington, easily setting a new personal best for playoff scoring.

2015

Olynyk had his team option exercised prior to the start of the 2015-16 season, so he suited up for the Celtics once again. He played 69 games, starting eight. The third-year center averaged 10.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists despite playing only 20.2 minutes per game. Acting as a stretch five, the Canadian hit a career-high 40.5 percent of his 3-pointers. Though he missed the season opener due to a suspension, he excelled in his first game two nights later, scoring 11 points in 16 minutes against the Raptors. The center's best performance came Dec. 11 against the Warriors, when he registered a season-high 28 points with three triples, six rebounds, three assists and three steals in 37 minutes. Olynyk missed 12 straight games from February to March with a right shoulder injury. After coming back in mid-March, he posted his lone double-double of the season, notching 14 points and 11 boards over 23:09 off the bench against Charlotte on Apr. 11. Olynyk played a minor role over the course of four playoff contests in the Celtics' first-round loss to Atlanta, collecting two points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal over 31:33 of total court time.

2014

Olynyk's sophomore year saw him play 64 games for the Celtics, starting 13. The young big man showed versatility as the backup to both Jared Sullinger and Tyler Zeller in the paint, splitting time with Brandon Bass. With a small bump in playing time to 22.2 minutes per game, he increased his scoring average to 10.3 points while adding 4.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 steals per contest. He remained accurate from the field, posting a 47.5 field-goal percentage and shooting 34.9 percent from 3-point range. On Nov. 5, Olynyk grabbed a season-high 13 rebounds while scoring 18 points against the Raptors. The 23-year old posted a career-high 30 points on Dec. 15 to help beat the 76ers, rounding out his line with nine rebounds, three steals and two blocks. He scored 10-plus points 35 times and notched three double-doubles. The center missed 18 straight games from late January to early March with a foot injury. Olynyk also made his first four playoff appearances. Though he still came off the bench, he was still able to shine in Game 1 against Cleveland, hitting 5-of-7 shots en route to 12 points with two rebounds, a steal and two blocks in 18:27 on the court.

2013

Olynyk was selected by the Mavericks with the 13th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft and traded right away to the Boston Celtics. A consensus All-American first-teamer at Gonzaga, he appeared in 70 games during his rookie season for Boston, starting nine of them. Olynyk backed up Jeff Green and Brandon Bass most of the time, averaging 8.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 20.0 minutes per game. He also shot 46.6 percent from the field and showed promising long-distance ability by hitting 35.1 percent of his threes. The young center made his pro debut against the Raptors on Oct. 30, scoring four points in 16 minutes off the bench. Olynyk missed 10 straight games from late November to mid-December with a sprained ankle. He posted a well-rounded performance Jan. 17 against the Lakers, scoring a then-season-high 25 points on 11-of-17 shooting with five rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 32 minutes. Olynyk went on to match that point total on Apr. 12 against Cleveland, adding 12 rebounds for his third double-double of the year. Two days later, he exceeded it with a season-high 28 points to go with nine rebounds against the Philadelphia 76ers. Following the season, Olynyk was named to the All-Rookie Second Team.

2013
Olynyk experienced a down year overall in 2019-20, recording 8.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.4 triples across 19.4 minutes of run. The minutes and points were career lows, but what Olynyk lacked in playing time, he made up for in efficiency, posting 46.2/86.0/40.6 shooting splits. His percentages from the charity stripe and from three were both career highs, and the seventh-year NBAer made the most of his limited opportunities. Olynyk showed how good he could be given an expanded workload, as he averaged 17.2 points, 6.4 boards and 3.2 assists in five games where he featured for 30-plus minutes of action. This includes big-time showings in the Finals, where Olynyk averaged 20.5 points, 8.0 boards and 3.0 triples across Games 2-3 against the Lakers with Bam Adebayo out. An unrestricted free agent, Olynyk will look to parlay his end-of-season success into a new contract, with Miami or otherwise.
Olynyk took on an expanded role in Miami last season with Hassan Whiteside in and out of the lineup. The former started the most games of his career (36) while playing the second-most minutes of his career (22.9). A role player throughout his NBA tenure, Olynyk was solid when in the starting five, averaging 11.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists per tilt. He's not a high-volume rebounder or scorer, but he's serviceable in those categories and capable of producing some big games when needed. He's also a solid shooter (47.8 FG%, 36.7 3P%, 76.5 FT%) who has a good chance to maintain his efficiency. With Whiteside now in Portland and the Heat failing to add more frontcourt depth, it's reasonable to expect Olynyk to see an increase in workload and production as the primary option behind Bam Adebayo
After spending the first four years of his career in Boston, Olynyk debuted as a member of the Heat last season, starting in 22 of his 76 appearances. He continued his efficient shooting, hitting 49.7 percent of his looks from the field, 77.0 percent from the charity stripe, and drilling 1.4 threes per game at 37.9 percent. He also posted career highs in points (11.5), rebounds (5.7) and assists (2.7) per contest. Olynyk’s less-than-ideal workload (23.4 minutes) subdues his Fantasy relevance, but his all-around play is good enough to keep him in top-100 contention. It’s important to keep in mind that he steps up when given expanded opportunities, however. In 14 games last season that he saw between 30-36 minutes, the big man averaged 14.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, 4.6 assists and a combined 2.1 steals/blocks while shooting 49.3 percent from the field, 79.6 percent from the stripe and 41.1 percent from deep.
Olynyk, a 7-footer capable of spreading the floor, was picked up by the Heat for the 2017-18 season after the Celtics were more or less forced to let him walk after the signing of Gordon Hayward. He’s shown promise though his first four years in the league and ended up averaging 9.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 20.5 minutes per game last season. While his three-point percentage has fluctuated year-by-year since entering the league, Olynyk has become a more efficient scorer overall, raising his true shooting percentage each year through better shot selection. He’s capable of playing both power forward and center, though has trouble keeping up with the faster forwards in the league off the dribble, leading him to play more center. As a result, he’ll likely spend the majority of his minutes backing up starting center Hassan Whiteside -- who garnered 32.6 minutes per game last season -- and fill in at power forward here and there. Due to the Heat’s frontcourt makeup, it seems doubtful that Olynyk will see a massive jump in workload, but a sixth-man role doesn’t seem out of the question. For that reason, Olynyk’s Fantasy stock is likely on the rise.
Entering his fourth NBA season, Olynyk will look to solidify himself as a starting-caliber big man on what should be a strong Celtics team. After coming off the bench for 61 of 69 games last season, Olynyk is a candidate to start at power forward his season alongside high-profile free agent addition Al Horford. The pair will form one of the better shooting frontcourts in the Eastern Conference. Horford dramatically improved as an outside shooter in 2015-16, while Olynyk hit nearly 41 percent of his three-pointers on a career-high 3.0 attempts per game. The majority of Olynyk's minutes came at the center spot last season, so he'll have to adjust to defending quicker power forwards, while fending off competition for minutes from the likes of Tyler Zeller, Amir Johnson and Jonas Jerebko. The Celtics will deploy one of the NBA's deepest rotations, so even if Olynyk flourishes, it's unlikely that he tops 25 minutes per game, hindering what would otherwise be decent fantasy production in the three-point and rebounding categories. The question is whether Olynyk will be ready to begin the regular season after undergoing arthroscopic shoulder surgery in May. Olynyk was originally given a five-month recovery timetable, but reports heading into training camp suggest he might be progressing quicker than anticipated. It's unclear whether he'll ultimately miss any regular season contests, but if he does, it shouldn't be more than a handful of games before Olynyk is back up to speed.
The breakout season some predicted for Olynyk in 2014-15 unfortunately did not occur, as the Canadian had a shaky sophomore season. On the positive side of things, he saw improvement in minutes (20 to 22), points (8.7 to 10.3), three-pointers (0.6 to 1.0), and steals (0.5 to 1.0), as well as a slight one-point improvement in field goal shooting to 48 percent. But he regressed in other areas. His rebounds decreased to 4.7 per game, and his free throw percentage dropped 17 points to 68 percent. Olynyk also missed over a month of action due to a severe right ankle sprain. But the most glaring issue was Olynyk's tendency to become a non-factor in many games. Last year, The Clynyk had 22 games where he scored five points or fewer, including three poor efforts in the playoffs versus Cleveland. GM Danny Ainge realized the Celtics needed frontcourt help, acquiring David Lee and Amir Johnson in the off-season. Both veterans will probably take minutes from Olynyk, even with the departure of Brandon Bass. For Olynyk's third season, he's probably once again looking at a bench role with limited opportunities to develop his game. That could all change though if GM Danny Ainge makes a big trade deadline deal, as many expect. Until then, Olynyk's opportunities for growth seem limited.
Olynyk generated buzz entering his rookie season after wowing the onlookers at the 2013 Orlando Summer League, but summer-league performances are not a guarantee of future performance. The 7-foot power forward went on to have an up-and-down season, which included an early-season ankle injury. In 70 games, he averaged 8.7 points on 47-percent shooting, 5.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 20 minutes per game last season. Olynyk hinted at the polished offensive game that was his reputation coming out of Gonzaga, but he's a work-in-progress defensively. Forced to see a lot of action at center, NBA bigs attacked him in the post, and he was susceptible in pick-and-roll defense. That's largely due to his conditioning, something Olynyk has been working on between years one and two in the Association. Auguring well for the big man is the improvement he showed over the second half of the season that culminated in an impressive three-game stretch (25.7 ppg, 9.4 rpg, 3.7 apg) to finish the season. He'll get the minutes he needs to develop, expanding offensively and improving defensively, but the addition of Tyler Zeller will limit the available minutes at center. And there's a crowd at the four, along with Brandon Bass and Jared Sullinger. That's a problem coach Brad Stevens will need to address, but Olynyk is in line for an increased role this season.
A case can be made that Olynyk deserved MVP honors from the Orlando Summer League. While the sample size was small, he impressed fans with 18.0 points, 7,8 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game while shooting 58 percent from the field. He even hit three 3-pointers. Olynyk is a legit 7-footer but prefers a face-up offensive approach and lacks the bulk to guard true centers. He'll get most of his minutes at the power forward spot. "The Klynyk" (we'll see if that nickname takes off) is a big part of Boston's rebuilding plans.
