2020 Fantasy Outlook
At 6-foot-5, Hampton is usually the fastest player on the court. The guard creates easy buckets in transition and off turnovers while possessing the ability to capitalize on defenses that haven't yet gotten set. Denver, however, was one of the slowest paced offenses in the league last season, so this isn't necessarily the perfect fit. That said, Hampton has a fine mid-range game and will likely battle for minutes with new teammates Will Barton and Gary Harris. Read Past Outlooks
