Phoenix Suns
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
$Signed a three-year, $5.72 million contract with the Suns in June of 2018. Contract includes $1.8 million team option for 2021-22.
Solid showing in win
GPhoenix Suns
July 12, 2019
Okobo totaled 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds and two steals across 18 minutes in the Suns' 94-64 win over Team China in the Las Vegas Summer League on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Okobo put together a solid stat line in Friday's blowout win, and he brought his scoring average up to 10.5 across four summer league games. He averaged 5.7 points, 2.4 assists and 1.8 rebounds over 18.1 minutes in 53 games as a rookie last season, but he'll have a harder time finding the court in 2019, vying for playing time with Tyler Johnson and new additions, Ricky Rubio, Jevon Carter and Ty Jerome.
