Personal Bio

Edmond Byron Sumner was born in 1995 in Beverly Hills, Michigan. He is the son of Ernest and Felicia and has two siblings, Shanequa and Ernest Jr. Sumner played high school ball at Detroit Country Day School. While at DCD, Sumner led the team to a state title, two regional championships and three district championships. He also reached the 1,000-point club in high school. While playing collegiate ball at Xavier University, Sumner studied computer science.

College/International Summary

Edmond Sumner spent three years (2014-2017) at Xavier University, playing in a combined 58 games with the Musketeers. Sumner played six games for the Musketeers in his first year at Xavier, averaging 1.3 points and an assist before being granted a medical redshirt due to knee issues. The next year, as a redshirt freshman, Sumner vastly improved his numbers. He started 29 of the 31 games and averaged 11.0 points, 3.6 assists and 1.3 steals per contest. In recognition of his efforts, Sumner was named to the Big East All-Freshman team. The 6-foot-4 guard entered the next season on the Wooden Award Preseason watch list. He backed up the hype. Sumner upped his points per game average to 15.0 and also produced 5.0 assists and 1.3 steals per contest.

Undergoes Achilles surgery

Achilles
September 14, 2021
The Pacers announced Sumner underwent successful surgery Monday to address a torn left Achilles' tendon.
ANALYSIS
Sumner sustained the injury in a workout last week, and though surgery went according to plan, he'll likely miss most -- if not all -- of the 2021-22 season while he goes through a lengthy and arduous rehab. The 25-year-old has now suffered two major left leg injuries through his first five NBA seasons; he was limited to just one appearance as a rookie in 2017-18 while he recovered from an ACL tear suffered in January of his final collegiate season at Xavier.

Past Season Summaries
2020

Sumner registered 52 appearances for the Pacers during the 2020-21 regular season and his role shifted between the bench and the starting lineup, making 24 starts and coming off the bench in the rest of his outings (28 games). His best scoring output of the season came in a win over the Detroit Pistons on April 24, a game in which he ended with 22 points, two assists, a rebound, a steal and a block. That was one of his two 20-point performances and one of the seven times he scored at least 15 points. Other season-high marks for Sumner included seven rebounds, six assists, three steals (twice) and one block (10 times). All things considered, the former Xavier standout finished the regular season averaging a career-high 7.5 points across 16.2 minutes per game, another career-best figure and the second straight season in which he averaged over 14 minutes per game. Plus, he also posted career-high marks in other categories such as rebounds (1.8), assists (0.9) and steals (0.6) per game. Sumner, who also averaged 0.2 blocks per contest, shot 52.3 percent from the field, a career-high 39.8 percent from three-point range, and 81.9 percent from the charity stripe. The four-year veteran also appeared in Indiana's both games during the play-in tournament, averaging 6.0 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.5 blocks across 10.0 minutes per game.

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. Sumner was in the starting lineup against the Cavaliers on Oct. 26, when he posted 10 points and one assist in 17 minutes. Sumner set multiple career-highs inside the NBA bubble in Orlando. 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. Sumner appeared in three of the Pacers' four first-round playoff games against the Heat. 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.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
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.
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.
