25-Year-Old GuardG
Philadelphia 76ers
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Milton again played a light sixth-man role for the 76ers last year, though his workload fluctuated significantly throughout the season. The reserve guard appeared in 64 games and averaged 13.0 points, 3.1 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 23.2 minutes, though both his field-goal percentage (45.0) and three-point percentage (35.0) took dips compared to 2019-20. Ultimately, he ranked 212th in per-game fantasy value. As the team stands heading into training camp, Milton appears to be in line for the same role. However, with the continuous rumors of Ben Simmons and the Sixers hoping to part ways, there's always a chance for Milton to receive increased minutes. At the same time, the Sixers would likely be trading for another point guard, so Milton's chances of starting are probably slim. Aggressive fantasy managers in deep formats can take a chance on the 25-year-old with a final pick, but the payoff will heavily depend on how the Simmons situation gets resolved. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Malik Benjamin "Shake" Milton was born in Savannah, Georgia. He attended Owasso High School in Owasso, Oklahoma. Milton earned Gatorade Player of the Year honors for the state of Oklahoma as a junior in 2014. He won the award again as a senior, averaging 29.7 points and 4.4 assists. Milton was also named Tulsa World Player of the Year, Oklahoma Super 5 Player of the Year and Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State. After three years at Southern Methodist University, he reached the NBA in 2018. In April of 2020, he donated 500 meals to Philadelphia-area healthcare workers helping to fight the coronavirus pandemic. Learn more about Milton by following him on Twitter (@SniperShake) and on Instagram (@snipershake). Milton was brought to SMU by coach Larry Brown for the 2015-16 season. The freshman guard lasted longer than his coach, who left 21 games into the season. The 6-foot-5 guard started 23 games and provided 10.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists for the Mustangs. He was a starter as a sophomore next to Sterling Brown and put up 13.0 points, 4.5 assists and 4.1 rebounds for coach Tim Jankovich. The team only lost twice after Dec. 2 and swept through the American Athletic Tournament as Milton averaged 10.3 points and 5.3 assists. The guard had 11 points, five rebounds and five assists in the first-round loss to USC in the NCAA Tournament. A broken hand limited Milton to 22 games in his junior season, but he averaged 18.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists and was named to the All-AAC Second Team for the second straight season. He scored a career-high 33 points in a win over Wichita State. Milton declared for the 2017 NBA Draft with one season of eligibility remaining and was chosen by the Dallas Mavericks in the second round (54th overall pick).

Productive off bench in Game 6
GPhiladelphia 76ers
May 13, 2022
Milton logged 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals in 28 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 99-90 loss to the Heat in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
ANALYSIS
While Milton put together a strong performance, the rest of the 76ers' second unit managed only seven points combined. It's the first time the 25-year-old guard has scored in double digits since the first game of the opening-round series against the Raptors, and assuming Philly picks up his affordable club option for 2022-23, Milton's role next season figures to be inconsistent once again behind Tyrese Maxey and James Harden in the backcourt.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Not close to returning
GPhiladelphia 76ers
January 15, 2022
Milton is dealing with a back contusion and is not close to returning to action anytime soon, head coach Doc Rivers revealed through Gina Mizell of The Philadelphia Inquirer.
ANALYSIS
"He's still really struggling. I don't foresee him back anytime soon," Rivers said. "The fact that I probably could beat him in a race today would tell me he's a long way away." Milton hasn't played since January 3. In his absence, Furkan Korkmaz and Isaiah Joe should continue seeing extra minutes.

The fact that Milton, the 54th pick in the 2018 draft, emerged as a starter for the Sixers down the stretch after spending the early part of the season out of the rotation entirely or even in the G League says something about the team's overall struggles, though it also says plenty about Milton's development. His primary contribution came as the team's best three-point shooter, as he led the Sixers in three-point percentage with a 43.0 percent mark. That's well above his 31.8 percent mark as a rookie, though that came in a small sample of just 268 minutes and was out of line with his college numbers, as he shot 42.3 percent or better from downtown in each of his three seasons at SMU. He also shot an impressive 53.5 percent from inside the arc last season, second only to Ben Simmons among the team's regular rotation players. Milton's 2.6 assists per game (in 20.1 minutes) is a fairly low total for a nominal point guard, though anyone who fills that role while Simmons is on the court will likely see their ball-handling duties reduced. Milton's likely role this season is as a useful third guard who can handle the ball a bit and knock down open shots, though there's, in theory, more upside here if he takes another step forward in his role or development.
Milton logged 20 games as a rookie second-round pick last season, averaging 4.4 points (on 39.1 percent shooting) and 1.8 rebounds across 13.4 minutes. The SMU product was a lights-out three-point shooter in college, shooting over 40.0 percent from three-point range in each of his seasons with the Mustangs. Given his limited playing time in his first pro campaign, Milton didn't have much of a chance to develop his marksmanship at the pro level, draining 31.8 percent of his 2.2 three-point attempts per game. Milton did show plenty of promise while suiting up for 27 games as a member of the G League's Delaware Blue Coats, averaging 24.9 points (on 48.4 percent shooting, including 36.7 percent from three-point range), 5.3 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals across 34.7 minutes. The 22-year-old didn't manage a successful encore in Las Vegas Summer League play, however, shooting an abysmal 17.0 percent across 22.0 minutes over three games before suffering an ankle sprain. Looking ahead to the 2019-20 campaign, Milton could be in line for a nice bump in opportunity in the wake of T.J. McConnell's offseason departure, which opens up a prominent spot in the backcourt rotation. The second-year pro will have plenty of competition for minutes at point guard behind Ben Simmons from young veterans Trey Burke and Raul Neto, with the depth chart -- and by extension, Milton's role and destination to open the season -- likely to become increasingly clear over the course of training camp and preseason.
