2019 Fantasy Outlook
White took a big step forward in his second year with San Antonio, averaging 25.8 minutes across 67 contests, starting 55 of them. He averaged 9.9 points, 3.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds -- all career highs. He also contributed 1.7 combined blocks/steals and shot a respectable 47.9 field goal percentage and 33.8 three-point percentage. White showed off his all-around game as a sophomore, with the ability to play both ends of the court at a high level and contribute valuable numbers across multiple categories. He turned his scoring up in the playoffs, averaging 15.1 points in seven games against Denver, displaying his upside with a 36-point, five-rebound, five-assist explosion in Game 3. White will look to carry the momentum from a big season into 2019-20. The return of point guard Dejounte Murray to the backcourt could cut into White's overall production, but the latter is still a breakout candidate as the Spurs' starting two-guard. Read Past Outlooks

Big night Friday
GSan Antonio Spurs
July 31, 2020
White scored 26 points (8-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding eight rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 34 minutes during Friday's 129-120 win over the Kings.
ANALYSIS
Getting the start over Dejounte Murray, White was able to exploit a ragged Sacramento defense and tied his career scoring high. It's not clear how coach Gregg Popovich plans to deploy his two point guards as the Spurs try to push their way into a playoff spot, but White certainly didn't hurt his case for an expanded workload.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
White was selected by the Spurs with the 29th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. He was a standout performer at the University of Colorado - Colorado Springs in Division II for his first three collegiate seasons, before heading to Colorado for his senior campaign. In joining the Buffaloes, he proved he could play against better competition, averaging an impressive 18.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.2 steals across 32.8 minutes. His shooting percentages of 50.7 percent from the field and 39.6 percent from the three-point line indicate he can score from all over the floor, which is esssential to stick in today's NBA landscape. The 23-year-old guard picked up All-Conference First Team honors in the Pac-12, while also being named to the conference's All-Defensive Team, which comes as no surprise for a Gregg Popovich coached team that prides itself on playing defense. His versatility on both sides of the ball should give both Popovich and GM R.C. Buford another weapon to develop over the next few years, but it's hard to see White getting a ton of run during his rookie campaign. Tony Parker will miss the first three months of the season while recovering from a ruptured quadriceps, so White could see spot minutes as the third point guard behind Patty Mills and Dejounte Murray out of the gate.
