2019 Fantasy Outlook
Drafted with the 43rd overall pick in 2019, Nowell joins the Timberwolves. The 6-foot-4, 202-pound sophomore out of Washington was voted Pac-12 Player of the Year on the back of 16.2 points (50.2 FG%, 44.0 3P%, 77.9 FT%), 5.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.3 steals across 34.4 minutes. He projects as a quality three-point shooter at the NBA level considering he shot 90-for-227 (39.6 percent) across his 70 collegiate games. Arguably his best in-conference performance last season came during a Pac-12 Tournament victory over USC, where Nowell dropped 24 points on 13 shots, plus eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block. With the Timberwolves, Nowell will compete against the likes of Josh Okogie and Jarrett Culver for reserve minutes at shooting guard. There seems to be a chance that Nowell could be an every-night rotation player if everything goes right. While it probably won't result in fantasy relevance during his rookie season, Nowell makes for an intriguing dynasty league option.
