24-Year-Old GuardG
Indiana Pacers
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. Read Past Outlooks

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.

Sumner posted 12 points (3-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes during Sunday's 118-111 scrimmage win over the Mavericks.
ANALYSIS
Sumner saw four more minutes than veteran backup point guard T.J. McConnell in this one. Moreover, Sumner did an excellent job attacking and earned six trips to the charity stripe, knocking down each attempt. It may be unlikely that Sumner continues to receive more minutes than McConnell going forward, but Sumner is at least capable of filling in at both guard spots thanks to his size and defensive ability.

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.
