2021 Fantasy Outlook
After four years of continuous growth, Siakam appeared to plateau during what was a tough 2020-21 season for the Raptors. For starters, the Raptors played all their "home" games in Tampa Bay. They also finished with a 27-45 record and missed the playoffs. Siakam's per game points (21.4), rebounds (7.2) and blocks (0.7) dipped modestly last year, though his steals (1.1) and assists (4.5) improved. And his free throw percentage improved to 82.7 percent. With four games left in the season, Siakam hurt his left shoulder, which led to surgery in early June. The procedure means he's unlikely to be available at the start of the 2021-22 season and could miss a few weeks of action. As he enters his age-27 season, Siakam has been involved in various trade rumors, which makes sense if Toronto decides to go into rebuild mode now that Kyle Lowry is in Miami. The Association was surprised to see Toronto take 6-foot-9 forward Scottie Barnes with the fourth pick in last summer's draft. Most experts believed the Raptors would snag high-scoring guard Jalen Suggs. The addition of Barnes certainly adds validity to the Siakam trade rumors. Both Golden State and Sacramento have been rumored destinations. Assuming Siakam stays with Toronto, the departure of Lowry should make more shots available for both him and Fred VanVleet. A healthy Siakam could, come December, see more field goal attempts than last year's 17.2 per game. If he can shake off his shoulder issues, a return to Siakam's 2019-20 All-Star production is certainly possible. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Pascal Siakam, son of Victoire and Tchamo Siakam, was born in Douala, Cameroon in 1994. Siakam comes from a basketball family. His three older brothers -- Boris, Christian and James, each played collegiate basketball, at Western Kentucky University, Indiana University - Purdue University at Indianapolis and Vanderbilt University respectively. Siakam spent his formative years at a seminary in Bafia, Cameroon, handpicked by his father to enter into a role in the Church. Everything changed after he received an invitation to attend Basketball Without Borders Camp in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2012, landing a scholarship to attend God's Academy in Lewisville, Texas. A year later, he moved on to play collegiate basketball at New Mexico State University. Pascal's last name is pronounced See-AH-kum. His nickname is "Spicy P". You can follow Siakam on Twitter and Instagram @Pskills43. Pascal Siakam spent two years (2014-16) at New Mexico State. He started 27 games as a freshman and averaged 12.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game, appearing in 34 contests for the Lobos. In recognition of his efforts, Siakam was named the WAC Freshman of the Year. As a sophomore, Siakam improved in nearly every statistical category. He started all 34 games he played, averaging a double-double, with 20.3 points, 11.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game. Those numbers led the WAC, and Siakam was named the 2016 Western Athletic Conference Player of the Year, becoming a finalist for the Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year Award. After his sophomore season, Siakam entered the 2016 NBA Draft, where he was selected by the Toronto Raptors with the 27th pick.

Reaches new season high in assists
FToronto Raptors
January 26, 2022
Siakam registered 24 points (9-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 12 assists, nine rebounds and one block across 39 minutes during Tuesday's 125-113 win over the Hornets.
ANALYSIS
Though Gary Trent was designated as the Raptors' starting point guard while Fred VanVleet (knee) was sidelined, Siakam often brought the ball up the court and initiated the offense while serving as the team's primary facilitator. As a byproduct of the role change, Siakam established a new season-high mark in assists. He'll take a step back as a creator if VanVleet is cleared to play Wednesday in Chicago, but the 27-year-old big man should still be viewed as an above-average source of assists. Even before Tuesday's big outing, Siakam was averaging a career-high 4.9 dimes per game.

2016
Siakam built upon his Most Improved Player campaign, upping his stats again in 2019-20, making the All-Star game and an All-NBA team (second) for the first time following the departure of Kawhi Leonard to the Clippers. The young forward managed career highs nearly across the board, averaging 22.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.9 combined steals-plus-blocks across 35.2 minutes. He also secured 12 double-doubles across his 60 appearances, including what was arguably the best game of his career, posting 37 points (12-19 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and three blocks with just two turnovers in 38 minutes against the Suns. Siakam's role is secure heading into 2020-21, and there's an opportunity for it to increase as well if the franchise shifts into a younger rebuild with him at the helm. With that in mind, fantasy managers should feel comfortable drafting Siakam in the third round, if not sooner, given that's where his production placed his value last season.
Siakam broke out during his third year in the league, winning the 2018-19 Most Improved Player award. He became a full-time starter and saw his usage rise to 23.1 percent from 14.4 percent the previous season. Across his 80 appearances, he averaged 16.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 31.9 minutes. Siakam was extremely efficient in the process, ranking 16th in the NBA in true shooting percentage (62.8). He put together some big games, dropping at least 30 points on five occasions, plus a 40-point outing, as well as accumulating 18 games with double-digit rebounds and 17 games with more than four assists. With Kawhi Leonard leaving the Raptors over the offseason to play with the Clippers, Siakam may be in line for another leap forward. With Leonard off the court last season, Siakam averaged 20.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists and a combined 1.9 steals/blocks per 36 minutes. It's possible Siakam's efficiency will suffer on a worse version of Toronto, but he should be one of the main offensive options alongside Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol.
After playing just 55 games as a rookie, Siakam saw his role grow in his second season in Toronto. He averaged a career-high 20.7 minutes, while adding 7.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 81 games. He finished with a 50.8 percent clip from the field and while he attempted to extend his range (29 attempts), the experiment didn't exactly go well and he shot just 22.0 percent from three-point land. Still, Siakam provided plenty of energy and has a ton of athleticism, so the Raptors could try and tap into that more during the upcoming season. The third-year big man does appear to have an opportunity for more playing time following the organization's big offseason. DeMar DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl were traded to the Spurs in exchange for superstar Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green. Poeltl's departure, specifically, should afford Siakam more frontcourt minutes considering the Raptors didn't bring any bigs back in the deal. While Siakam will need to continue to develop his shot and become a much more productive three-point shooter, the added workload could boost his numbers elsewhere across the stat sheet and he'll have every chance to take the next step forward in his development. However, his Fantasy expectations shouldn't be too high and he'll still likely be avoidable in all but the deepest of leagues.
Siakam was drafted out New Mexico State with the 27th pick of the 2017 NBA Draft and saw plenty of opportunities to contribute during his rookie campaign. The 23-year-old end up starting 38 of the 55 games he played in, but struggled mightily to make much of an impact and averaged just 4.2 points and 3.4 rebounds across 15.6 minutes. Due to his struggles, the Raptors ended up scaling down his playing time as the season wore down and after the Raptors added both P.J. Tucker and Serge Ibaka at the trade deadline, Siakam was essentially a non-factor in the team's regular rotation. Other than Tucker, the Raptors have nearly the exact same roster from a season ago, as they re-signed both Kyle Lowry and Ibaka. That means Siakam is going to be stuck in a reserve role yet again, so it's unlikely he'll see improvement on his rookie year numbers unless an injury occurs higher up on the depth chart. Look for Siakam to battle both Lucas Nogueira and Jakob Poeltl for minutes off the bench in the frontcourt.
Siakam, a 6-foot-10 power forward out of New Mexico State, was the Raptors' second first-round selection of the 2016 NBA Draft, settling in as the No. 27 overall selection. Siakam turned in impressive averages of 20.4 points (on 53.6% shooting from the field), 11.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game last season, though as a small-school product, the big man's numbers carry the stigma of mostly coming against low-level competition. His draft stock didn't really begin to take off until he shined during the measurements portion of the NBA Combine. Siakam checked in with a huge 7-foot-3.25 wingspan, and that coupled with the non-stop hustle he displayed in workouts and games would seemingly make him a good candidate to eventually serve as a rotational big man at the next level. While Siakam's physical advantages worked for him against shorter players in college, he could have trouble exerting his will in the NBA, particularly on the offensive end. With Jared Sullinger and Patrick Patterson in the fold to handle the bulk of the minutes at power forward, Siakam won't be asked to see regular time as a rookie. However, since neither of those veterans are under contract beyond 2016-17, Siakam could have a clear path to a rotation spot as soon as next season, but his ceiling is fairly limited as a player more reliant on effort than raw talent.
