2020 Fantasy Outlook
Neto finds himself in his third NBA home as the new season approaches, having signed a one-year pact with the Wizards after suiting up in 54 games during his sole 76ers campaign last season. The 28-year-old averaged 5.1 points, 1.8 assists and 1.1 rebounds across 12.4 minutes, shooting 45.5 percent from the field, including 38.6 percent from behind the arc. The numbers essentially mirrored those of his first four NBA seasons in Utah, and with the returning John Wall and Ish Smith in front of him on the point guard depth chart in Washington, Neto projects for a very similar allotment of playing time in the 2020-21 campaign. In addition to his dependable offensive numbers relative to his modest amount of opportunity, Neto has also proven a dependable free-throw shooter over the last two seasons, posting 84.8 and 83.0 percent success rates from the charity stripe in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 campaigns, respectively.

Past Season Summaries
2019

In his first season with the 76ers, Neto appeared in 54 games -- his highest total since his rookie season in 2015-16. Averaging 12.4 minutes per game, Neto posted 5.1 points, 1.8 assists, and 1.1 rebounds, while shooting 45.5 percent from the field and 38.6 percent from three. Neto posted 11 points, four assists, three rebounds and a season-high three steals against Utah on Nov. 6. Making his first start of the season against Denver on Nov. 8, Neto posted 13 points, a season-high six assists, and two rebounds. Neto scored a season-high 22 points in a seeding-game against the Suns in Orlando. In that game, he tied his season-best with three made three-pointers. Neto scored in double-figures in three consecutive games from Aug. 11 through Aug. 14, averaging 17.7 points and 4.7 assists in that span. In the postseason, Neto appeared in two of the Sixers' four first-round games against Boston. In Game 2, Neto finished with five points, three assists and two rebounds.

2018

Neto battled several injuries on his way to playing 37 games with the Jazz during the 2018-19 campaign. However, his 12.8 minutes per contest were his highest since his 2015-16 rookie season. Neto's season debut came Nov. 19, and he posted his first double-digit scoring game Nov. 28, recording a season-high 11 points against the Nets. He recorded seven double-digit scoring games on the season, scoring exactly 10 points in six of those seven contests. The 6-foot-1 guard averaged 5.3 points and 1.7 rebounds. He also set new career highs by shooting 46.0 percent from the field and collecting 2.5 assists per game. Neto was gathering momentum in early January with back-to-back 10-point games before missing nearly a month with a groin injury. After that, he averaged 5.7 points and 3.1 assists in his final 18 games. He appeared in three postseason contests.

2017

Neto's playing time was limited for a second straight year in 2017-18, as he missed a good portion of the season due to both a fractured wrist and a concussion. All told, he suited up in 41 games for the Jazz. Despite the missed contests, Neto once again displayed an ability to contribute in a variety of areas even in limited court time. Over the course of just 12.1 minutes per game, Neto posted averages of 4.5 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists -- good for per-36 averages of 13. points, 5.4 assists and 3.5 rebounds. He also proved to be one of the NBA's best three-point shooters, hitting on 40.4 percent of his attempts. Neto's best performance of the season came against Brooklyn on Nov. 17. In that game, Neto poured in a career-high 22 points. He drained 9-of-14 shots from the field, including going 3-for-6 from downtown, while adding three rebounds, an assist, a steal, and a block for good measure. Neto also saw playing time in eight of the Jazz's 11 playoff games, including all five games of their Western Conference Semifinal loss to Houston.

2016

Neto appeared in 40 games off the bench for the Jazz during the 2016-17 regular season. The sophomore point guard averaged 2.5 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists per contest as a reserve, averaging 8.7 minutes per tilt. Neto scored a season-high 10 points against the Knicks on Mar. 22 by making all four of his shots, including a pair of 3-pointers. He snared a season-high four rebounds against Sacramento on Dec. 10 and dished out a season-best four dimes Mar. 25 against the Clippers. Neto appeared in nine playoff games for the Jazz, scoring in six of those outings.

2015

Neto arrived stateside in 2015-16 after several years of playing professional ball in Spain and immediately filled a valuable role for the Jazz. His ability to produce immediately should come as no surprise, given that Neto, at age 23, is older than your average NBA freshman. Neto saw action in 81 of 82 regular-season games, including 53 starts. He proved to be a reliable, past-first point guard option. The Brazilian averaged 5.9 points, 1.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists despite playing just 18.5 minutes per night. His turnover numbers (1.3 per game) were strong and he hit 74.3 percent of his free throws. Defensively, Neto excelled in the steals department. He averaged 0.8 thefts per game and racked up at least three steals on five separate occasions. Neto's best all-around performance of the season was a 13-point, five-assist, three-steal effort against Miami on Jan. 9.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2015
Neto arrived in Philadelphia on a one-year, minimum contract this offseason to compete with the likes of Trey Burke and Shake Milton for minutes at point guard behind Ben Simmons. The 27-year-old spent first four seasons of his NBA career with the Jazz, seeing his greatest allotment of playing time back in his 81-game rookie season. Neto did average 12.8 minutes last season -- his most since that first campaign -- averaging 5.3 points (on 46.0 percent shooting), 2.5 assists and 1.7 rebounds across 37 contests. The 2013 second-round pick proved a capable three-point shooter throughout his Utah tenure, averaging between 32.3 percent and 40.4 percent from behind the arc over that span. Neto has also served as a relatively dependable free-throw shooter and drained a solid 84.8 percent of his attempts from the charity stripe last season, the second-best figure of his NBA career. Neto seemingly profiles as an ideal member of the backcourt rotation for a team with postseason aspirations. He's young but brings plenty of experience (199 games over four seasons), does a bit of everything, and has also logged time in 20 playoff games overall. Neto could thus make for a rock-solid replacement for the departed T.J. McConnell, although Milton and Burke will present formidable competition for minutes.
For the second straight season, Neto missed more than half the year with an assortment of injuries, this time coming in the form of a fractured wrist and a concussion. When he did take the court, the point guard averaged just 4.5 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists across 12.1 minutes. He made a promising 19-of-47 three-pointers (40.4 percent) and is still just 26-years-old, so the Jazz opted to bring him back this offseason and signed him to a two-year, $4.4 million extension. Despite the vote of faith by the organization, Neto will merely be a deep reserve in the backcourt, likely operating as the team's third point guard behind Ricky Rubio and Dante Exum. With Donovan Mitchell also handling lead guard duties at times, there's only going to be a few spot minutes available for Neto most nights.
Neto is making his NBA debut this season after agreeing on a multi-year deal with the Jazz in July. He was originally chosen by the Hawks with the 47th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft but was traded to the Jazz on draft night before ultimately electing to spend the past two years playing in Spain. Despite his inexperience in the NBA, the 23-year-old could be in store for significant minutes during his rookie season with fellow point guard Dante Exum (knee) ruled out for the entirety of 2015-16 following surgery to repair a torn ACL. The Brazilian will contend for playing time with Trey Burke over the course of the year, but it seems that Burke has the edge over Neto heading into the late-October season opener. Neto remains somewhat of an unknown, but previous scouting reports indicate that he's more of a traditional pass-first point guard who could fit in well in coach Quin Snyder's offensive dynamic in comparison to Burke who tends to shoot as if there are no consequences for missing. With playmakers like Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, and Alec Burks already in the starting five, Neto could serve as a nice compliment to those proven scorers if he's given an opportunity to start, which likely wouldn't occur until deeper into the season when the rookie gets a better feel for the gravitas of NBA competition.
