2020 Fantasy Outlook
Forced into action last season, Sumner logged career highs in a number of categories in his third NBA season. He averaged 4.9 points, 1.8 dimes and 1.5 rebounds across 14.4 minutes as a reserve for Indiana and drew three starts for the short-handed Pacers. Sumner saw extended run due to a litany of injuries across the board for the Pacers, but barring similar circumstances in 2020-21, Sumner isn't expected to see many meaningful minutes. He'll contend with the likes of Victor Oladipo, Jeremy Lamb, Malcolm Brogdon, Aaron Holiday and Justin Holiday for playing time on the wing, and Sumner is a guy to leave undrafted in nearly all fantasy basketball leagues this season.

Past Season Summaries
2019

Playing in his third NBA season, Sumner appeared in a career-high 31 games for the Pacers. The Xavier product notched career-highs in minutes (14.4 MPG), points (4.9 PPG), rebounds (1.5 RPG), assists (1.8 APG), blocks (0.3 BPG), and made threes (1.1 3Pt) per game. He made his debut on opening night against the Pistons, playing 22 minutes and posting six points, two assists and three steals.

On Aug. 14 versus Miami, he played a career-high 31 points and registered a career-best six assists. Sumner scored a season-high 17 points against Houston on Aug. 12, also adding four rebounds, four assists and one block.

He also saw action in two contests for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the G League, where he averaged 19.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 27.2 minutes per game.

2018

Edmond Sumner bounced between Indiana and Fort Wayne of the G League as he looked to establish himself as a rotation piece during the 2018-2019 season. The 23-year-old appeared in 23 games with the Pacers, starting two of them. He scored 2.9 points per game across 9.1 minutes of playing time per contest. The Xavier product showed a good nose for the ball, averaging 4.1 rebounds per 36 minutes as a 6-foot-5 guard. He also recorded 2.1 steals per 36 minutes. On Feb. 5, he had 17 points, two rebounds, two steals and a block across just 17 minutes in a win over the Lakers on Feb. 5. Sumner's high-scoring mark of the year was 22 points, which he posted during a season-high 29 minutes in a win over Atlanta on Apr. 10. With Fort Wayne, Sumner got more regular playing time and excelled. Sumner averaged 22.1 points, 4.1 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 2.1 made three-pointers per game across 26 games. He also continued to impress as a defender, averaging 2.1 steals-plus-blocks per game for the Mad Ants.

2017

Edmond Sumner was drafted in the second round with the 52nd overall pick by the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2017 NBA Draft. He was then quickly dealt to the Indiana Pacers for cash considerations. The Pacers eventually signed Sumner to a two-way contract. Knee issues delayed Sumner's G-League debut with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants until late January. On Jan. 19, Sumner received 12 minutes of run and scored nine points during his first game for the Mad Ants. Sumner played in 14 games for Fort Wayne, with seven starts. He averaged 7.2 points, 2.4 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals per G League contest. He scored a career-high 17 points twice with the Mad Ants, including a 17-point, six-rebound, three-steal effort during a Mar. 9 win over the 87ers. Sumner made his NBA debut during the last day of the Pacers' regular season. On Apr. 10, Sumner received just over two minutes of floor time and scored two points during a loss to Charlotte. Sumner was not part of Indiana's playoff roster.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
A late-second-round pick in 2017, Sumner appeared in only one game as a rookie but saw a slight increase in opportunity in Year 2. He made 23 appearances, logging a pair of starts and averaging 2.9 points, 1.0 rebound and 0.5 steals in 9.1 minutes per contest. The Xavier product inked an extension with the Pacers over the summer, and he could be set for a larger workload in 2019-20. He's able to play three positions, so the hope is he'll be able to help compensate for the losses of Thad Young and Bojan Bogdanovic, while also filling in as a reserve guard as Victor Oladipo recovers from a severe knee injury. Fantasy-wise, Sumner should not be on the radar for most owners, but he may be another injury or two away from stepping into a regular rotation spot.
