Elie Okobo
21-Year-Old GuardG
Phoenix Suns NBA
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Okobo spent the 2017-18 campaign playing professionally in France for Pau-Orthez, where he finished 36 games with averages of 13.8 points, 4.7 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 0.9 steals across 26.5 minutes. He also shot 48.9 percent from the field and an impressive 41.8 percent from deep, so he should provide the Suns with a threat from all over the floor. Okobo is a combo guard and is expected to be able to play both point guard and shooting guard, though his quickest path to playing time appears to be the former. Phoenix let Elfrid Payton walk in free agency and also waived Tyler Ulis, so Brandon Knight is really the only point guard on the roster with experience. Knight will get first dibs on the top spot, but keep any eye on Okobo later in the season if the Suns opt to prioritize his development over getting a veteran like Knight minutes. Knight is also injury prone and is coming off a torn ACL, so don't be surprised to see Okobo start the year in a fairly significant role in the rotation and he could be in line for even more time if Knight goes down. Fantasy owners may want to temper expectations for him as he transitions to the NBA, but Okobo is at least someone to keep an eye on as training camp approaches. Read Past Outlooks

December 7, 2018
Okobo will play a reserve role in Friday's matchup with the Heat.
ANALYSIS
Okobo started the previous two games in place of Devin Booker (hamstring), but has been outplayed by De'Anthony Melton in both contests. Thus, Melton will get the start Friday, while Okobo will presumably see backup point guard minutes.
