2020 Fantasy Outlook
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.

College/International Summary

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).

Scores 11 points off bench
GPhiladelphia 76ers
February 27, 2021
Milton registered 11 points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal across 32 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 112-109 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.
ANALYSIS
Milton struggled a bit from the field, but he still ended as just one of three Philadelphia players that scored in double figures. He has proven to be a reliable scoring asset for the 76ers while coming off the bench, but his inconsistency on a game-to-game basis makes him tough to rely on in 12-team leagues.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.
