2019 Fantasy Outlook
Little was projected by many to go much higher than pick 25, and he could be a valuable selection by Portland. He averaged 9.8 points and 4.6 rebounds (47.8 FG%, 26.9 3P%, 77.0 FT%) in 18.2 minutes per game while coming off the bench for North Carolina as a freshman this past year. Little appeared in four summer league games, but he was underwhelming. In 17.6 minutes per game, he averaged 3.3 points on 4.5 shots and 3.3 rebounds. It seems like he'll have to put in some work with the training staff to get to a skill level more in line with how he was viewed coming out of high school, which was that of a top-five recruit. Portland is relatively thin at small forward, but Little will still have to beat out Kent Bazemore, Rodney Hood, Anthony Tolliver and Mario Hezonja to see consistent playing time.
