Personal Bio

Noah Vonleh was born in Salem, Massachusetts in 1995. The son of Samuel Vonleh and Renell Kumeh, all Vonleh ever wanted to do as a child was play basketball. He was good, too -- a prodigy, even. That was made apparent when Vonleh started for Haverhill High School in Haverhill, Massachusetts at just 13 years old. He truly broke out of his shell at New Hampton Prep in New Hampshire, averaging 16.0 points and 9.0 rebounds as a junior. Volneh's senior totals were even better, as the big man averaged 17.0 points, 12.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game for the Huskies and was ranked the No. 7 player in the nation by Scout.com in 2013. He then took his talents to the Indiana University Bloomington. Vonleh spent one year there, majoring in sports communications and completing 43 percent of his degree by the end of his freshman season. You can follow him on Instagram @nvonleh.

College/International Summary

Vonleh was the 2013-14 Big Ten Freshman of the Year, and he made the All-Big Ten third team as well. The Haverhill, Massachusetts native led the Big Ten in total rebounds (269) and rebounds per game (9.0), and he led the University of Indiana with a 52.3 field-goal percentage while finishing a close third in scoring average (11.3 points per game). The defensively minded forward also paced the Hoosiers in blocks (1.4) and steals (0.9) per game. Vonleh announced for the 2014 NBA Draft after just one college season and was selected in the first round (ninth overall) by the Charlotte Hornets.

Past Season Summaries
2019

Vonleh signed with Minnesota in the summer ahead of the 2019-20 season. He played in 29 games (one start) for the Timberwolves before a four-team trade on Feb. 5 sent him to the Nuggets, with whom he appeared in another seven games off the bench. Across his two stops, Vonleh averaged 3.7 points and 1.1 rebounds per game while posting career bests in both field-goal percentage (56.5) and free-throw percentage (78.1). On Dec. 20, Vonleh scored a season-high nine points with seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block for the Wolves against his future Nuggets teammates. Eight days later, Dec. 8 against Cleveland, Vonleh stuffed the stat sheet again with eight points, a season-high nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block. He went on to make a playoff appearance in Game 3 of the first round against Utah, marking his return to postseason play for the first time since the 2016-17 season.

2018

Vonleh started 57 games and averaged 25.3 minutes for the Knicks in 2018-19. He made the most of the playing time, setting new career bests in points per game (8.4), rebounds per game (7.8) and assists per game (1.9). On Jan. 25, Vonleh established a new career high with 22 points against the Nets. He added 13 rebounds during that contest for one of his 18 double-doubles on the season. The big man managed to record at least 10 boards in a game 28 times. Vonleh handed out nine assists versus the Hornets on Dec. 8 to mark another new personal best. He played a career-high 41:51 during an OT victory over the Hornets on Dec. 14, recording a well-rounded line with 15 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists and a block. Vonleh led the Knicks with 528 total rebounds. He also ranked third on the team in total minutes played with 1,722. Vonleh finished the year with a 25.8 defensive rebound percentage, good for 17th in the league.

2017

Vonleh has proven to be a reliable big man off the bench throughout his four-year NBA run, and the 2017-18 campaign was no different. After beginning the season in Portland, Vonleh was dealt to Chicago in February. The University of Indiana product saw a significant uptick in playing time following the trade, and his production increased as a result. In 21 games with the Bulls, Vonleh averaged 19 minutes per night and averaged 6.9 points with 6.9 rebounds, including a pair of double-doubles. His best effort of the season was a 14-point, 13-rebound performance against the Heat on Mar. 29. Vonleh also tied his career high with three blocks in a win over Memphis on Nov. 20. He signed with the Knicks as a free agent in the summer of 2018.

2016

In his third NBA season and second with Portland, Vonleh continued to display steady growth as a player. He played in 74 games (41 starts) and averaged a career-high 17.1 minutes per contest. The Indiana product also set new career highs with 4.4 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. Vonleh improved his shooting percentage to 48.1 percent after shooting 42.1 percent from the floor a season earlier. The big man also continued to show good range, knocking down 35 percent of his 3-point attempts. Vonleh's season high in points was 12, a mark he reached on five separate occasions. The 21-year-old grabbed a season-high 19 rebounds in one of those games, a loss to New Orleans on Apr. 12. That contest was one of four double-doubles on the year for Vonleh. He had a total of nine games with double figures in rebounds, including a 14-board effort against the Lakers on Mar. 26. Vonleh tied a career high with three blocked shots in a win over Utah on Apr. 8.

2015

Before starting his second NBA season, Vonleh was shipped from Charlotte to Portland. He stepped into a larger role with the Trail Blazers, appearing in 78 games (56 starts) after playing in 25 games off the bench as a rookie. Vonleh set new career bests with 3.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 15.1 minutes per game. He also bested his rookie numbers by shooting 42.1 percent from the field and 74.5 percent at the free-throw line. Vonleh scored a season-high 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting against the Lakers on Jan. 23. He scored in double figures on one other occasion, going for 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting against Sacramento on Jan. 26. The Indiana product grabbed a season-high nine rebounds against Washington on Jan. 18. Vonleh had three other games with eight rebounds and averaged a strong 9.4 rebounds per 36 minutes. He blocked a career-high three shots in a win over Denver on Apr. 13. Vonleh also set a new career high with four steals in a win over Cleveland on Dec. 26.

2014

After one season at the University of Indiana, Vonleh went to Charlotte with the ninth pick of the 2014 NBA Draft. The rookie big man suffered a sports hernia in August, which pushed his season debut back to Nov. 14. Vonleh ended up playing in 25 games overall for the Hornets, averaging 3.3 points and 3.4 rebounds per game across 10.4 minutes of action. The 19-year-old shot 39.5 percent from the field and showed good range from deep, knocking down 38.5 percent of his 3-pointers. Vonleh had his best game of the season against Detroit on Apr. 12, when he scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting and added 12 rebounds for his first career double-double. Vonleh scored in double figures on one other occasion, going for 10 points against Denver on Jan. 31. He matched his season high in rebounds by grabbing 12 against Toronto on Apr. 15. Defensively, Vonleh utilized his length to block 1.3 shots per 36 minutes. He had a season-high two blocks on two separate occasions.

Vonleh has had a difficult time carving out significant playing time throughout his career, but he finally received a chance to prove himself last season with the Knicks. He started 57 of 68 appearances, averaging a career-high 25 minutes per night. He didn't disappoint, posting averages of 8.4 points, 7.8 rebounds and 0.8 blocks while shooting 47.0 percent from the field. However, his time in New York was short-lived after the Knicks made significant changes to their frontcourt during the offseason. Vonleh now finds himself as a member of the Timberwolves, vying for playing time as a backup at power forward and center. With Robert Covington and Karl-Anthony Towns set to start at those positions and Jordan Bell and Gorgui Dieng also competing for time on the floor, don't expect Vonleh to approach 25 minutes per game again if everyone remains healthy.
Vonleh opened the 2017-18 season playing for the Trail Blazers, marking his third straight year with the organization. He took the court for 33 games and averaged 3.6 points and 5.1 rebounds across 14.4 minutes before being dealt to the Bulls at the trade deadline. After joining Chicago, Vonleh saw a slight uptick in his workload and would go on to average 6.9 points and 6.9 rebounds across 19.0 minutes in 21 games. However, he was allowed to walk this summer as a free agent and now joins the Knicks. Despite the change in scenery, Vonleh has some work to do to become a Fantasy relevant player. The Knicks are set to open the year without superstar Kristaps Porzingis (knee), who could be sidelined for more than two months. Despite the extra minutes available, the likes of Kevin Knox, Mario Hezonja and Lance Thomas will all be battling for time at the power forward spot, which means Vonleh will likely once again have to settle for a role in the teens. Knox and Hezonja seem very likely to start the year ahead of Vonleh, so tentatively expect him to come in at third on the depth chart. That should keep him off the radar in most Fantasy leagues.
Vonleh had his chance to secure a relatively large role with the Trail Blazers in his third NBA season, starting 41 of the 74 games he played in. As a starter, Vonleh averaged 5.9 points and 7.0 rebounds across 22.2 minutes, and while that was better than the 2.6 points and 3.1 rebounds across 10.8 minutes that he averaged in 33 games off the bench, it wasn't enough to keep his standing in the top unit. He eventually fell back into a smaller bench role, which took him off the Fantasy radar almost immediately. Vonleh is a decent rebound and has shown some improvement with his shot, going a career-high 48 percent from the field in 2016-17. However, the fact that the Trail Blazers selected two big men in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft, Zach Collins and Caleb Swanigan, likely means they've largely given up hope on a guy like Vonleh to develop much further, which likely means another year stuck in a small bench role. Vonleh should battle with Collins and Swanigan for minutes as the third power forward behind Moe Harkless and Al-Farouq Aminu.
Drafted ninth overall by the Bobcats in the 2014 NBA Draft, Vonleh suffered a setback almost immediately, developing a sports hernia in August that required surgery and two months of rehabilitation. After his recovery simmered into the season's first month, he made a six-minute debut on Nov. 14 but only 24 appearances thereafter in a frontcourt occupied by Al Jefferson, Marvin Williams, Cody Zeller, and Bismack Biyombo. With Charlotte out of the playoff picture down the stretch, Vonleh finally earned the first five 20-minute outings of his career, yet his rookie line settled at 3.3 points (on 40 percent shooting) and 3.4 rebounds in 10 minutes per game. Despite a change of climate following an offseason trade to Portland, he again doesn't have a direct path to minutes behind Meyers Leonard, Ed Davis, and in small-ball lineups, Al-Farouq Aminu. In any case, Vonleh impressed at the Las Vegas Summer League, pacing the Blazers with 17.3 points and 8.5 rebounds in 29 minutes per contest while shooting 50 percent (5-for-10) from beyond the arc.
Vonleh fell into Charlotte's lap at No. 9, and although the Hornets have a plethora of options to replace McRoberts' minutes, Vonleh may be as important as any. What Zeller lacks in athleticism and Marvin Williams lacks in size Vonleh appears to have both. Still, Charlotte could fight for a top-four seed in the Eastern Conference, and coach Steve Clifford is expected to ease the youngster into the rotation.
