2018 Fantasy Outlook
Bacon is a 6-foot-7, 22-year-old from Florida State who averaged 26.5 points per game with the Greensboro Swarm last season (Hornets G League affiliate). When given the opportunity, Bacon has the ability to score, illustrated with an 18-point outing against the Spurs last season. He also has good court vision and can feed the ball to seemingly anyone at any given time, while showing off a soft touch inside the arc. He'll likely have a bench spot with the Hornets this season considering Bacon did receive 13.5 minutes with the Hornets over 53 games last year, so the team isn't afraid to use him as long as he keeps developing.

Finishes in double figures
FGreensboro Swarm   G League (Hornets)
April 10, 2019
Bacon totaled 12 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and a steal over 35 minutes Wednesday against Orlando.
ANALYSIS
Bacon had an above average performance from a scoring standpoint, although he didn't contribute much elsewhere. He impressed down the stretch, finishing off the season with three straight performances of 12 or more points. This boosted his season scoring average to 7.2 ppg. The 23-year-old's 2018-2019 campaign will come to an end following a loss in the finale to the Magic.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Oak Hill Academy product had quite the career at Florida State, as he averaged 16.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.0 steal in his two collegiate seasons. While he slipped to the second-round, Bacon is an excellent scorer, and he'll work to carve out a minor bench role as a rookie. With Nic Batum, Jeremy Lamb and Malik Monk ahead of him, however, Bacon's rookie season will likely be a developmental year, first and foremost.
