2021 Fantasy Outlook
After Vanderbilt struggled to land a rotational role in his first two seasons, he was given the most run of his career in 2020-21. He started 30 of his 64 appearances and averaged 5.4 points on 60.6 percent shooting, 5.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.7 combined steals-plus-blocks in 17.8 minutes. He's an extremely low-usage, defensive-minded player. Per 36 minutes, he averages an impressive 11.6 rebounds and 3.5 combined steals-plus-blocks. He was also the 100th-most valuable fantasy player on a per-minute basis last season, though he ranked just 222nd in per-game production due to a low minutes total. This season, he'll be battling for the starting power forward job with Jaden McDaniels and Taurean Prince. Even if Vanderbilt doesn't earn the job, he should continue to see roughly 15-20 minutes per game as a defensive specialist. He's worth considering with a final pick in deep drafts considering his per-minute output. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, $3.92 million contract with the Nuggets in July of 2018. Traded to the Timberwolves in February of 2020.

In 10 appearances between the two teams, he totaled 12 points, nine rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block in 46 minutes. He made his season debut for Denver on Oct. 31 against the Pelicans, finishing with one rebound and one assist in five minutes.

2018

Vanderbilt was selected by the Magic with the 41st pick in the NBA Draft, and was traded to the Nuggets shortly thereafter. He missed Summer League play due to a foot injury suffered in college, and his absence continued through exhibition play and the early part of the season. The Nuggets took a conservative approach with Vanderbilt's recovery, but he was able to make his NBA debut Jan. 25 against the Suns. While he saw only four minutes, Vanderbilt still had a point, three rebounds, a steal and an assist. Shortly after that night, Vanderbilt was sent to the G League and saw four games with the Delaware Blue Coats. Over that span, Vanderbilt averaged 7.3 points and 7.8 rebounds before getting the call back to the NBA. He stayed with the team the rest of the season, averaging 1.4 points and 1.3 rebounds in 16 games. Vanderbilt's then-career high came April 2 against Golden State, when he put up 10 points (4-4 FG) and three rebounds. The Nuggets made the playoffs that season, and Vanderbilt saw action in three of the seven games in the opening-round victory over the Spurs. He did not see the court in Round 2 against Portland, the Nuggets where ultimately eliminated in a seven-game series.
