Memphis Grizzlies
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Morant will presumably take over the Grizzlies' starting point guard spot, which was vacated as a result of the trade of Mike Conley to the Jazz. Morant, the 2018-19 OVC Player of the Year and Consensus All-American, averaged 24.5 points, 10.0 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 1.8 steals across 36.6 minutes last year with Murray State. He's lauded for his athleticism and playmaking ability, but an underdeveloped jumpshot and tendency to turn the ball over could be a cause of early struggles in the NBA. Rookie point guards can often get off to a rough start, but fantasy owners should be confident that the rookie will have a big role with the Grizzlies right out of the gate, and Memphis is likely to let Morant get plenty of reps considering the team's rebuilding status. Morant makes for a safer pick in points leagues, where a potentially troublesome field-goal percentage and lack of threes won't damage his fantasy value. Read Past Outlooks

Drops 10 dimes in exhibition
GMemphis Grizzlies
October 8, 2019
Morant contributed four points (2-6 FG), 10 assists, five rebounds and one steal across 20 minutes during the Grizzlies' 108-94 preseason win over New Zealand on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
The rookie was modestly involved on offense, but he excelled as a facilitator. The reverse had been true in his preseason debut versus Maccabi Haifa on Sunday, with Morant draining an impressive five of eight attempts in that contest. The second overall pick is expected to continue showing off his diverse skill set in remaining exhibitions ahead of assuming starting point guard duties right from the start of the regular season.
