22-Year-Old GuardG
Dallas Mavericks
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Despite leaving Villanova early after his junior season, Brunson did plenty to elevate the program and helped lead his team to two National Championships. He also captured the AP Player of the Year award and the Wooden Award, so the point guard received plenty of national attention. His final year in college was unsurprisingly his best showing, becoming a dominant scorer from all over the floor. Brunson finished with a team-high 18.9 points per game, while shooting an impressive 52.1 percent from the field and 40.8 percent from the three-point line. He was also solid in the ancillary categories and added 4.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds across 31.8 minutes. Brunson has been praised for his leadership and NBA readiness, though there are plenty of question marks with his defensive capability at the next level. He's only 6-foot-2, which could present some problems when forced to switch on screens. Either way, Brunson is going to have plenty of time to develop, as he'll have a tough path to significant minutes right away. Dennis Smith is locked into a starter's workload, while Devin Harris re-signed and J.J. Barea is back as well. Both Harris and Barea should be great mentors for Brunson, but will also absorb plenty of backcourt minutes. As a result, look for Brunson to see only spot time off the bench and he could also get some run in the G-League to aid in his development. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $6.11 million contract with the Mavericks in July of 2018.
Double-double in season finale
GDallas Mavericks
April 10, 2019
Brunson managed 11 points (5-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 10 assists, and three rebounds in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 105-94 loss to the Spurs.
ANALYSIS
Brunson contributed his third double-double in the season finale, and amassed two in the last three games of 2018-19. Overall the rookie was pretty impressive this year, and there's a good chance he'll begin next season as the primary backup point guard, a role that can be fairly appealing for fantasy purposes given coach Rick Carlisle's penchant for regularly running multi-guard lineups.
