22-Year-Old GuardG

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.
Remains sharp in loss

March 21, 2019
Brunson delivered 16 points (6-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists, two rebounds and two steals across 26 minutes in the Mavericks' 126-118 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
The rookie continues to turn in highly efficient offensive performances, as Wednesday's 60.0 percent success rate marked the fourth time in the last five games in which he'd drained at least half his attempts. Brunson has now taken double-digit shot attempts in eight consecutive contests as well, and both his starting role and usage appear locked in for what remains of the campaign.
