2020 Fantasy Outlook
The 2019 No. 6 overall pick got plenty of opportunities to learn and grow for the 19-45 Timberwolves, starting 35 times in 63 games while playing an average of 23.9 minutes. It's fair to say that he didn't experience much immediate success, scoring a modest 9.2 points per game. Among the rest of the top-10 picks, only one other player (Jaxson Hayes) averaged fewer than 10 points per game. He didn't make up for his lack of scoring with any particularly notable contributions elsewhere in the box score, averaging a modest 3.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.9 steals. It's the extent of his scoring struggles that's the most concerning for his future, however. He shot a poor 29.9 percent from downtown and an awful 46.2 from the stripe, with the latter number clearly indicating his shooting stroke wasn't in a good place. Culver possesses the athleticism to be at least a solid 3-and-D wing option, but his ability to knock down shots is nowhere near that level at this point. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Jarrett Culver was born in Dallas in 1999. His parents, Hiawatha, a pastor, and Regina, the director of a local Head Start program, instilled in Culver and his two brothers an early love for religion and basketball. Culver's father is the team chaplain at Texas Tech University, where Culver spent four years playing basketball, and where older brother Trey competed in track and field. The third Culver brother, J.J., plays college basketball at Wayland Baptist University. Jarrett became a star at Coronado High School in Lubbock, Texas, averaging 20.0 points and 6.0 rebounds per game as a junior. He upped those totals as a senior, averaging 30.0 points per game. Culver chose Texas Tech over the likes of the University of Texas at Austin, Texas Christian University and Oklahoma State, choosing to stay close to his family in the town that raised him.

College/International Summary

Culver finished his second college season by leading Texas Tech to the 2019 NCAA Tournament championship game, though the Red Raiders fell to Virginia. The Lubbock, Texas native was named to the 2019 NCAA All-Tournament team. Culver also earned a spot on the 2018-19 All-American second team and was named the 2018-19 Big 12 Player of the Year. Culver led the Big 12 in points (704), field goals (254), field goal attempts (551) and free throw attempts (208) in the 2018-19 season. Besides easily leading Texas Tech with 18.5 points per game, he also posted team-leading averages in rebounds (6.4) and assists (3.7). Culver finished second in steals (1.5) and 3-point buckets (1.3) per game. He announced that he would enter the 2019 NBA Draft after his sophomore year, and Culver was chosen in the first round (sixth overall) of the draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Well-rounded performance
FMinnesota Timberwolves
April 8, 2021
Culver dropped eight points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3PT, 1-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, two assists and one block in a 141-137 loss to the Pacers on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Culver saw his most playing time in any game since Jan. 23, notching 18 minutes in a close game. The former Texas Tech standout outperformed his averages in points, rebounds and assists over the past two months. Although the 22-year-old hasn't received adequate time on the court, coach Chris Finch could opt to incorporate Culver more into the rotation as the last-place Timberwolves look to young players down the stretch.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Texas Tech product and No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 Draft led the Red Raiders to the National Championship game as a sophomore last season, averaging 18.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.5 steals in 38 contests. His numbers were good enough to secure an All-American Second Team selection, not to mention winning Big 12 Player of the Year. He has clear upside as a scorer, but he wasn't especially efficient last season, hitting 46.1 percent of his 14.5 field goals per game, 30.4 percent of his 4.2 threes and 70.7 percent of his 5.5 free throws. His initial pathway to significant minutes in the NBA may be his defensive presence. At 6-foot-5 and 195 pounds, Culver may be able to guard both backcourt positions and small forward. There's a decent chance he'll start the 2019-20 season as the Wolves' starting small forward, though he'll be competing with the likes of Josh Okogie and Jake Layman. Robert Covington and Andrew Wiggins are both options on the wing as well if coach Ryan Saunders wants to go big.
