Past Season Summaries
2019

After being drafted in the second round (40th overall) by the Kings in 2019, James went on to spend most of his 2019-20 season with Sacramento, though he also had two stints with the G League's Stockton Kings. The rookie out of Wyoming appeared in 36 games (all as a reserve) for Sacramento -- two of which came in the Orlando bubble -- and three games for Stockton. James saw minutes for Sacramento in eight straight games from Nov. 19 to Dec. 4, averaging 4.1 points and 2.3 rebounds in 16.1 minutes per game during that span. The second-round selection set a personal best with 14 points on two separate occasions. On Nov. 22, James posted 14 points with three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 33 minutes of run at Brooklyn. Eight nights later, Nov. 30 against Denver, James tallied a career-high seven rebounds along with two steals. On Dec. 20 against Indiana, the rookie tallied 14 points, three boards, two dimes and a block over 24 minutes of play. Across his three G League appearances for Stockton, James averaged 15.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.3 blocks. On Jan. 11 during a G League win over Iowa, James exploded for 30 points, five rebounds, two dimes, three blocks, three treys and one steal.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Selected with the 40th overall pick in the 2019 Draft, James joins the up-and-coming Kings. A 6-foot-7, 183-pound senior out of Wyoming, James was selected to the Mountain West All-Conference First Team (Media) last season. He saw 38.2 minutes per game and averaged 22.1 points on 17.4 shots, 8.5 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.5 steals. While his three-pointer is a work in progress (33.5 percent for his collegiate career), James was adept at getting to the free-throw line, taking 8.4 freebies per game and making them at a 74.1 percent clip. In six summer league games, he racked up 9.2 points on 6.5 shots, 4.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists across 22 minutes per contest. It appears James may end up buried on Sacramento's depth chart, and he'll have to beat out Bogdan Bogdanovic and Trevor Ariza for any hope of seeing consistent run as a backup. Considering that's unlikely, it's possible James ends up in the G League for much of the 2019-20 campaign.
