23-Year-Old GuardG
Toronto Raptors
2021 Fantasy Outlook
After two and a half seasons in Portland, Trent was dealt at last year's trade deadline to the Raptors. With Toronto, Trent started 15 of 17 games and posted 16.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 2.6 made threes over 31.8 minutes per game. With Kyle Lowry moving on to Miami, the Raptors quickly decided Trent should be their new starting shooting guard and signed him to a three-year deal. Fred VanVleet will slide over from shooting guard to point guard. Trent is particularly appealing when you consider 2021-22 will be only his age-22 season. With only 47 career starts under Trent's belt, there is clearly room for growth. And with Pascal Siakam suffering from shoulder surgery and rumored to be on the trading block, there is a good chance that Trent will be forced to shoot more. Speaking of trades, one must wonder about the newly-acquired Goran Dragic's future. Dragic came to Toronto as part of the Lowry sign-and-trade deal. He has expressed an interest in playing elsewhere and his age (35) doesn't match well with Toronto's young core. Should Dragic stick around and stay healthy, he'll certainly eat into Trent's minutes. But if Dragic is dealt, Trent will be further entrenched in Toronto's core lineup. A bigger worry with Trent is that outside of points and three-pointers, he offers little production. This is especially true if he again shoots 40.8 percent from the field as he did last year versus the 44.4 percent he shot in 2019-20. In nine-category leagues, Trent's career average of only 0.5 turnovers per game is appealing. Trent has only averaged 23.9 minutes per game during his three-year career. He'll most likely play significantly more during his first full season with the Raptors. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Trent was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1999. He is the son of former NBA first-round pick Gary Trent Sr., who also played multiple seasons of his career in Portland. Trent had always been considered an elite prospect early on while attending Apple Valley High School in Minnesota before transferring to Prolific Prep Academy in Napa, California, where he averaged 31.8 points per game as a senior. He was rated as a consensus five-star prospect entering his lone season at Duke, and was selected by the Kings in the second round of the 2018 Draft. Trent has three brothers named Garyson, Grayson and Graydon. Follow Trent on Instagram at @gtrentjr. A highly regarded recruit out of high school, Trent spent one season at Duke in 2017-18. He averaged 14.5 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 steals for the Blue Devils, starting all 37 games. Trent shot 41.5 percent from the field, including 40.2 percent from beyond the arc. He ranked third on the team in scoring and set a Duke freshman record with 97 made three-pointers. Trent scored in double-figures in 23 of his final 27 contests and was named to the NCAA Tournament All-Midwest Region Team. In four NCAA Tournament games, he averaged 16.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.0 made threes per contest. In his final outing, Trent went 5-of-8 from beyond the arc in Duke's loss to Kansas in the Elite Eight.

Drills three triples in return

Trent (ankle) produced 13 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in 29 minutes Friday in the Raptors' 109-105 win over the Wizards.
ANALYSIS
Trent made his return from a bout of ankle swelling that had sidelined him for the previous six games and immediately recaptured his spot in the starting five. Though he saw a healthy amount of playing time in his return, Trent could have the upside to add a few more minutes to his total once he fully ramps up, given head coach Nick Nurse's inclination toward shorter rotations. The Raptors essentially ran a seven-man rotation Friday, with Yuta Watanabe (5:47) and Justin Champagnie (2:02) only seeing light run while some of Toronto's key players were getting breathers.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2018
Trent enjoyed a big spike in playing time during his sophomore NBA campaign, but that wasn't enough for him to make a fantasy impact. He averaged 8.9 points, driven largely by his impressive 41.8 percent shooting from beyond the arc (good for 1.8 threes per game), and he mixed in 0.8 steals per game, but that was pretty much the end of his statistical contributions. With the Blazers sporting a pair of stars at guard in Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, Trent's path to fantasy value is almost entirely dependent on how much time he can carve out at small forward, where the team is much thinner. There's some opportunity there, though the 6-foot-5, 209-pound Trent is a little undersized for a starting forward. In the best case that doesn't involve an injury to one of Portland's stars, Trent's minutes leap from last year's 21.8 into the mid-20s or higher and he clears double-digit points with upward of two threes and a steal per game, which would be enough to give him some fantasy value. The Blazers will have to make a decision on a contract extension for Trent ahead of this season, and their choice in that matter will speak volumes about his projected usage.
A second-round pick of the Kings this past June, Trent was subsequently traded to the Trail Blazers for a pair of second-round picks. The 19-year-old’s game is largely considered one-dimensional at present, as his stellar offensive skills are countered by a subpar defensive profile. The former Blue Devil shot an impressive 40.2 percent from three-point range during his one season at Duke, and he followed that up with an average of 11.4 points over seven games in Las Vegas this summer. Trent is largely seen as a long-term project given his age and one year of college experience, making him a likely G-League or end-of-bench candidate for the coming season. His above-average athleticism and shooting prowess does make him an intriguing keeper and dynasty league prospect, however.
