2018 Fantasy Outlook
Gilgeous-Alexander played just one year of college ball at Kentucky, but showed plenty of upside as an all-around prospect and averaged 14.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.7 steals across 33.7 minutes. He's an underrated shooter after knocking down 48.5 percent of his field goal attempts and 40.4 percent of his three-pointers, while he's also got very good size for the point guard position. Gilgeous-Alexander stands 6-foot-6 and has a seven-foot wingspan, which should give him the ability to matchup with a handful of different positions on the defensive side of the ball. Considering the fact that he was selected with the 11th overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft, Gilgeous-Alexander will likely be expected to contribute right away, though he'll be stuck in a bit of a logjam at the point guard position. The Clippers dealt Austin Rivers to the Wizards this offseason, but still have the likes of Patrick Beverley and Milos Teodosic in the fold, as well as fellow first-round pick Jerome Robinson. For that reason, Gilgeous-Alexander may be stuck with minutes in the teens to open the season while being mentored by Beverley. The 20-year-old rookie has plenty of room to develop and does need to add some weight, so a bench role could be beneficial in the long run. Read Past Outlooks

Traded to Oklahoma City
GLos Angeles Clippers
July 5, 2019
The Thunder acquired Gilgeous-Alexander on Saturday along with Danilo Gallinari, four future unprotected first-round picks, one protected future first-round pick and the right to swap future picks with the Clippers twice in exchange for Paul George, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
After a promising rookie campaign, Gilgeous-Alexander was a prime candidate to take another leap forward in 2019-20, but the move to Oklahoma City now threatens any possible ascension. The Kentucky product's outlook will likely hinge on whether the Thunder are able to find a trade partner for superstar Russell Westbrook, who is believed to be on the block now that George is out of town, per Brett Dawson of The Athletic. If Westbrook sticks around in Oklahoma City, Gilgeous-Alexander would largely remain limited to an off-ball role, which would put a cap on his overall usage. In that scenario, Alexander would at least provide a major upgrade at shooting guard for the Thunder, which has been a black hole of fantasy production for the past few years.
