Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Nicolas Devir Claxton was born in 1999 in Greenville, South Carolina. He is the son of University of Georgia alums Charles and Nicole Claxton. Nicolas also attended Georgia for two years. Like his son, Charles played collegiate ball for the Bulldogs, earning both freshman All-SEC honors. He also briefly played for the Boston Celtics during the 1995-96 season. Before attending Georgia, Nicolas Claxton was a high school student at the Legacy Charter School in Greenville. Claxton was the fourth player in Legacy history to score more than 1,000 career points (1,163). He has also represented the U.S. Virgin Islands in various international competitions and was eligible to do so because his father was born in St. Thomas. Claxton's nickname is "Clax". Fans can follow the 6-foot-11 Bulldog product on Twitter at @_claxton33 and on Instagram @nicolasclaxton. Claxton got his feet wet in international basketball competition as a teenager when he played for the United Stated Virgin Islands team. He averaged 10.6 points and 11.8 rebounds in the Centrobasket Under-15 Championship in 2014. Two years later, he helped the Virgin Islands place seventh in the FIBA Americas Under-18 Championship by averaged 12.0 points and 7.2 rebounds. The 6-8 forward chose Georgia over Baylor and South Carolina (where he played high school basketball). He started just five games a freshman, but developed into a star as a sophomore. During the 2018-19 season, he led the Bulldogs with 13.0 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.5 blocks and started in all of Georgia's 32 games. The lanky forward collected eight double-doubles and led Georgia in scoring, rebounding, blocks and steals. He helped Georgia knock off rival Georgia Tech in December with 13 points, 13 rebounds, six assists and six blocks. Claxton was named to the 2019 All-SEC Second Team and became the 36th Georgia player to become an NBA Draft pick.

Shows offensive spark in first half
CBrooklyn Nets
April 23, 2022
Claxton finished Saturday's 109-103 loss to the Celtics with 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one block across 21 minutes.
ANALYSIS
Claxton and Bruce Brown kept the Nets in this game thanks to an excellent first half. Claxton proved to be more effective than Andre Drummond, and he made some key plays in the interior, including a commanding tip-in dunk. Claxton will continue to benefit from less attention as the Celtics defense continues to key on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Target for Rockets?
CBrooklyn Nets
June 18, 2022
There's a chance the Rockets might target Claxton in free agency in the summer, according to Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle.
ANALYSIS
The Rockets will target a backup center in free agency and Claxton could be an intriguing option due to his size, defensive ability and long-term potential. Plus, the Nets might not match an offer around the mid-level exception, which is valued at $10.5 million, because of luxury tax concerns. Claxton was a part-time starter during the 2021-22 season and put up career-best numbers with 8.7 points and 5.6 rebounds per tilt.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Claxton was selected by the Nets with the first pick in the second round of the 2019 Draft. The 6-foot-11, 215-pound center spent two seasons at Georgia. Last year, he earned Second Team All-SEC (Coaches) honors, averaging 13.0 points (46.0 FG%, 28.1 3P%, 64.1 FT%), 8.6 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, 1.8 assists and 1.1 steals across 31.6 minutes. Appearing in four summer league contests, Claxton posted 5.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game. Claxton has clear upside as a defender, and it's possible he develops an outside shot. However, he was just 26-for-86 (30.2 percent) from deep in his 65 college appearances and hit only 61.1 percent of his 257 free-throws. With Brooklyn, Claxton is firmly behind the likes of DeAndre Jordan and Jarrett Allen in the center rotation, and the rookie will probably only see real action if there is an injury.
