Phoenix Suns
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Landry Shamet is the newest Sun, acquired this offseason from the Nets in exchange for Jevon Carter and the rights to Day'Ron Sharpe (the 29th pick in the 2021 draft). Shamet, who has played for three different teams in three years and has 31 playoff appearances under his belt, will look to fill the void left when the Suns did not re-sign Langston Galloway or E'Twaun Moore. Consider this an upgrade. Shamet is a sharpshooter from the outside (lifetime 40% three-point shooter) who will slot in nicely as a core piece of the second team backcourt alongside Cameron Payne. Last season, Shamet hit 2.1 threes per game and scored 9.3 points per game but only played 23.0 minutes per game given his on-court redundancy with Joe Harris and the formidable scorers on the Nets. Shamet, however, proved to be a reliable role player who can stretch the floor and play respectable defense. Those abilities should keep him in the rotation on Phoenix, where we should see slightly higher shot attempts and points versus last year. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Landry Michael Shamet was born in Kansas City, Missouri, to Melanie Shamet in 1997. His mother was a volleyball player at Boise State University. Shamet attended Park Hill High School in Kansas City, where he was coached by David Garrison. Shamet's uncle, Tyler, played basketball at Park Hill prior to Landry and became an important role model in his life. In 2019, Shamet launched the Landry Shamet Basketball Camp. The camp "supports youth and growing kids who might need role models and good influences in their lives." Learn more about Shamet by following him on Twitter and Instagram (@landryshamet).

College/International Summary

Throughout his three seasons with Wichita State, Shamet had to deal with a variety of foot issues. He played in just three games during the 2015-16 season before he was sidelined with an injury. He returned in 2016-17 as a redshirt freshman and paced the Shockers with 11.4 points and 3.3 assists. Shamet helped the team win 15 straight games, including sweeping through the MVC Tournament. He scored 20 points in the last game of the season, a loss in the second round of the NCAA Tournament against Kentucky. The 6-foot-4 guard was named MVC Freshman of the Year. Shamet had surgery to fix a stress fracture in his foot after the season. In his sophomore campaign, the guard improved his efficiency despite greater volume. He averaged 14.9 points and 5.2 assists as the team moved to the American Athletic Conference. Shamet had a pair of double-doubles, including a 20-point, 10-assist performance against SMU. He declared for the 2018 NBA Draft after the NCAA Tournament and was selected with the 26th pick by the Philadelphia 76ers.

Traded to Phoenix
GBrooklyn Nets
July 29, 2021
Shamet was traded to Phoenix from Brooklyn on Thursday for Jevon Carter and the 29th pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Shamet had a relatively successful 2020-21 season in Brooklyn. He saw 23.0 minutes per game and scored 9.3 points on 38.7 percent shooting from deep. In joining the Suns, he figures to see backup minutes on the wing behind Devin Booker and Torrey Craig. From a fantasy perspective, it seems unlikely too much will change.

He registered 12 starts and averaged 10.9 points, 2.7 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 30.3 minutes during those contests. On the season, the Wichita State product shot 40.8 percent from the field, 38.7 percent from three and 84.6 percent from the free-throw line.

He also dished out multiple assists 29 times, including a season-high eight during a 134-129 win over the Pelicans on April 20. Defensively, the 6-foot-4 guard recorded multiple steals six times, including a season-high three on two occasions. Per 36 minutes, Shamet averaged 14.5 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 0.8 steals.

2019

The 2019-20 season marked Shamet's first full campaign with the Clippers after being traded to Los Angeles from Philadelphia during the previous year. On Dec. 19 against the Rockets, Shamet blocked a season-high two shots in addition to recording 13 points, two rebounds and two assists. During a win over the Cavaliers on Jan. 14, Shamet grabbed a season-high seven rebounds, also adding 12 rebounds and three assists. Eight days later against the Hawks, Shamet swiped a season-high two steals -- a mark he'd reach two more times during the campaign. On Jan. 24, Shamet dished a season-high six assists against the Heat, and he'd reach that mark again during another win over the Heat on Feb. 5. During the Feb. 5 contest, Shamet also scored a season-high 23 points on the back of a season-high six threes. In the first round of the playoffs against the Mavericks, Shamet averaged 8.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steals. During the second round against the Nuggets, he averaged 2.9 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists.

Overall, Shamet finished the campaign with averages of 9.3 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists.

2018

The 26th overall pick by the 76ers in the 2018 draft, Shamet began his NBA career in Philadelphia before a mid-season trade to the Los Angeles Clippers. While a member of the Sixers, Shamet established himself as a regular part of the rotation. He hit three or more three-pointers 14 times, headlined by an 8-for-14 performance on Jan. 8 against the Wizards en route to 29 points. On Feb. 6, Shamet was sent to the Clippers, along with Wilson Chandler and Mike Muscala, in a six-player, four-draft-pick deal. In 54 appearances for the 76ers, Shamet averaged 8.3 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists while shooting 40.4 percent from beyond the arc. In Los Angeles, he picked up where he left off, draining 45 three-pointers in the first 15 appearances for the Clippers. On March 1 against the Kings, Shamet went 5-for-10 from beyond the arc. One game later, in a win over the Knicks, he hit 7-of-11 attempts from deep. The rookie came off the bench for his first two games in a Clippers uniform, but he would go on to start the final 23 games of the regular season. Over that period, Shamet posted 10.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. He finished the season with the league's 11th-highest three-point percentage (42.2%), while also ranking in the top 10 in turnover percentage (7.0%). Shamet was named to the All-Rookie Second Team.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Shamet's sophomore campaign was extremely similar to his rookie showing, though he missed 17 straight games early in the year due to an ankle injury. The three-point-shooting wing averaged 9.3 points, 2.1 threes, 1.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 27.4 minutes. Since he doesn't have much fantasy value outside of three-point shooting, Shamet hasn't yet been relevant in standard leagues. It doesn't seem like that will change anytime soon given his role on the Nets is expected to be extremely similar to what he was doing with the Clippers. While Shamet has some long-term upside, he can largely be ignored in standard leagues unless fantasy managers are desperate for three-pointers.
Shamet was traded to the Clippers at the trade deadline as part of the deal that sent Tobias Harris to the 76ers. He had a promising rookie season in which he displayed his sharpshooting abilities, finishing with 2.1 threes made per game at a 42.2 percent clip. He also shot respectably from the floor (43.1 percent) and from the charity stripe (80.6 percent). Shamet spent 25 games in Los Angeles, where he improved his averages in points, rebounds, assists, three-pointers made and three-point percentage. He averaged just 22.8 minutes per contest, but his averages per 36 minutes work out to 14.4 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 3.3 threes. Shamet has a great chance to start at shooting guard on a loaded Clippers team, and with defensive attention likely lasered in on Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, open looks should present themselves frequently. Shamet will look to carry his end-of-season momentum into 2019 where he should be a reliable source of threes.
Shamet snuck into the back end of the first round of this year's draft following a standout junior campaign at Wichita State where he averaged 14.9 points, 5.2 assists and 3.2 rebounds across 31.7 minutes. He also knocked down a whopping 44.2 percent of his three-pointers, showing off his ability to hit shots from all over the floor. The 21-year-old has the desired height for the guard position at 6-foot-4 and has the potential to develop into a role player down the line as a combo guard, but he'll have a tough time finding significant run in Year 1. Even with fellow rookie Zhaire Smith (leg) sitting out for at least the first half of the season, the likes of Ben Simmons J.J. Redick, Markelle Fultz and T.J. McConnell all sit ahead of Shamet in the guard rotation. As a result, he'll be stuck in a deep reserve role and could even spend time in the G-League if the Sixers think he needs added developmental opportunities.
