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
$Signed a four-year, $43 million contract extension with the Suns in October of 2021.
Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

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). 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.

Doesn't see floor in Game 1

April 18, 2022
Shamet did not play in Sunday's Game 1 victory over the Pelicans.
ANALYSIS
While he was cleared from the injury report after dealing with a left foot injury, Shamet went unused as coach Monty Williams rolled with a nine-man rotation featuring Cameron Johnson, Torrey Craig, Cameron Payne and JaVale McGee as options off the bench. It's quite possible that Williams was simply being cautions with Shamet, who was limited at practice Saturday, so it will be interesting to note how much -- if at all -- he plays in Tuesday's Game 2.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Silver-lining digging
GPhoenix Suns
May 16, 2022
Despite the Suns getting drubbed at home to end their playoff run, Shamet connected on multiple triples for the first time since Phoenix's regular-season finale. Shamet, a career 39.0 percent shooter from beyond the arc, connected on just 6-of-22 triples in the playoffs prior to breaking that slump in Game 7.
ANALYSIS
Shamet shot a career-low 36.8 percent on threes this season -- a testament to the plug-and-play shooting success the 25-year-old has demonstrated throughout his five NBA seasons with four different teams. A free agent this offseason, Shamet may be the victim of Phoenix looking to shake up the roster. However, his skill set could generate appeal around the league. Shamet has never graded as a strong defender, nor has he ever logged more than a combined 0.7 steals/blocks per game, but at an athletic 6-foot-4, Shamet can be disguised.

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.
