2018 Fantasy Outlook
Hart, after four seasons at Villanova, was the 30th overall pick in last year’s draft. During his senior campaign, he was given the Julius Erving (Best Small Forward) Award, averaging 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.6 steals. He also flashed impressive range, hitting 2.1 threes per tilt at 40.4 percent. Hart posted 7.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists per contest for the Lakers during his rookie campaign, but was especially impressive towards the end of the year. During his final 18 appearances (13 starts), he averaged 14.1 points (50.6 FG%, 44.0 3P%), 7.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.0 steal across 33.3 minutes -- showing off the potential he demonstrated in college. However, he was given that workload largely due to a myriad of injuries on the Lakers. That factor, combined with LeBron James (plus other veterans) joining the team, could result in Hart trending closer to 20 minutes per game rather than 30. Assuming that’s the case, the second-year man can probably be avoided in most standard Fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks

Knee
June 15, 2019
The Pelicans acquired Hart (knee) from the Lakers on Saturday as part of a package of picks and players in exchange for Anthony Davis, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Hart, who's recovering from season-ending knee surgery, was dealt along with Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, the fourth overall pick in next week's 2019 NBA Draft and two future draft picks in exchange for All-Star center Anthony Davis. The Villanova product has been a steady contributor over his first two seasons in the NBA and averaged 7.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.4 threes in 25.6 minutes per game in 2018-19. The Pelicans' roster remains in flux in the wake of the franchise-altering trade, but Hart should have a decent shot at claiming a regular spot in the team's wing rotation regardless of what New Orleans' personnel looks like following the draft and free agency.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
After leading Villanova to a national title the year before, Hart had an impressive follow-up campaign with the Wildcats as a senior, averaging 18.9 points and 6.4 rebounds per game while shooting above 40 percent from 3-point range for the second time in his college career. That production was enough to keep him in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft, with the Jazz selecting the shooting guard with the 30th overall pick before trading him to the Lakers. Hart was limited to just two appearances in the Las Vegas Summer League due to an ankle sprain, but he should be back to full health by the time training camp rolls around. While Hart will be given a chance to compete for a rotation spot in the preseason, he'll likely find himself behind at least Lonzo Ball, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Jordan Clarkson on the depth chart right away, making it more likely than not that the 22-year-old rides the bench early on as a professional in between stints with the G League's South Bay Lakers.
