2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Sixers moved up in the draft to select Thybulle with the 20th-overall pick in 2019, viewing the polished defensive-minded wing as a potentially key role player for a team that viewed itself as on the brink of a title run. Though that run never came, Thybulle was more or less as advertised. He started 14 games but primarily filled a fairly significant role off the bench, managing 1.4 steals and 0.7 blocks in 19.8 minutes per game. On a per-minute basis, Thybulle trailed only Kris Dunn in steals among qualified players while leading all wings in blocks. The rookie had a predictably low 11.2 percent usage rate, but he knocked down threes at an acceptable clip, posting an almost precisely league-average 35.7 percent three-point percentage. Thybulle should have the chance to build on a strong rookie campaign and could improve his raw numbers if his minutes increase, though he doesn't seem to have the skillset to suddenly become something other than a role player. He also played a full four years in college, so he could have less development remaining than is typical for a second-year player. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Matisse Vincent Thybulle was born in Scottsdale, Arizona, to Greg and Dr. Elizabeth Thybulle. He spent much of his early years in Australia, where he was more interested in swimming than basketball. After seven years abroad, Thybulle's family returned to the United States and settled near Seattle, Washington. Thybulle attended Skyline High School in Sammamish, Washington, for two years, then transferred to nearby Eastside Catholic School, where he emerged as a top-150 prospect. Near the end of his senior season, Thybulle's mom passed away after a battle with acute myeloid leukemia. Thybulle consequently wore No. 4 in college to honor his mother and wears No. 22 in the NBA since it adds to four. He has also taken time to visit and motivate young leukemia patients in local hospitals. Learn more about Thybulle by following him on Twitter (@MatisseThybulle) and on Instagram (@theycallmetisse).

College/International Summary

Thybulle was a record-setting defensive performer in his four years with Washington. He started all but one of the 135 games in which he appeared. He was part of a recruiting class that included Dejounte Murray and Marquese Chriss. The 6-foot-5 forward averaged 6.2 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.1 steals as a freshman. He improved to 10.5 points and 2.1 steals in his sophomore season while also converting 40.5 percent of his three-pointers that year. He debuted with a season-high 20 points and six blocks in a win over Yale. In 2017-18, Lorenzo Romar was replaced by Mike Hopkins as coach and the Syracuse zone seemed to unleash Thybulle as a defensive force. He set a school record with 101 steals and led the team with 49 blocks. The forward also averaged 11.2 points and 2.9 rebounds. Thybulle won Naismith Defensive Player of the Year honors and repeated as Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year as a senior. He produced averages of 3.5 steals and 2.3 blocks along with 9.1 points. He passed Gary Payton as the all-time conference steals leader and became the first Pac-12 player to record two 100-steal seasons, and he is the only player in Huskies history ranked in the top 10 in both career steals and blocks. Thybulle was selected in the first round of the 2019 NBA Draft with the 20th overall pick by the Philadelphia 76ers.

Thybulle will start Wednesday's Game 5 against the Wizards, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Surprisingly, coach Doc Rivers will insert Thybulle in the starting five for the injured Joel Embiid (knee), opting to still bring Dwight Howard off the bench. In eight starts this season, Thybulle has averaged 5.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.0 steals, 1.6 assists and 1.4 blocks in 29.0 minutes. In the absence of a true center, Ben Simmons appears to be in line to serve as the nominal five on the first unit.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 76ers traded the 24th and 33rd picks in the draft to the Celtics in order to snag the 20th overall pick and select Thybulle. Thybulle was a four-year starter at Washington, averaging 9.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 3.5 steals, and 2.3 blocks in 36 games as a senior this past season. In addition to being selected to the All-Pac-12 First Team, Thybulle was named Defensive Player of the Year in college basketball, boasting one of the most unique defensive profiles of any prospect in recent memory. At 6-foot-5, 200-pounds, Thybulle's ability to guard three positions is obvious, and he might be able to check power forwards in certain situations. While he wasn't a great three-point shooter last season (49-for-151, 30.5 percent), his career mark in college finished at a respectable 35.8 percent on 534 attempts. Five summer league appearances only confirmed optimistic opinions about the rookie, as he averaged 11.6 points (42.9 FG%, 39.3 3P%, 91.7 FT%), 3.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.2 blocks across 26.1 minutes. Thybulle's path to minutes on the 76ers is less than ideal, but he'll have the opportunity to snag minutes at backup shooting guard and small forward if he can outplay Zhaire Smith and James Ennis. It's possible Thybulle returns standard league fantasy value if he can knock down his threes and get enough minutes to rack up some defensive stats, though he should probably only be drafted in deeper formats.
