2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 11th overall pick in the 2020 Draft, Vassell had an up-and-down rookie campaign with the Spurs. Overall, he appeared in 62 games (seven starts) and averaged 5.5 points and 2.8 rebounds. He's primarily a shooter, with 52 percent of his shots coming from three and just 16 percent of his looks coming at the rim. However, he didn't exactly excel from an efficiency standpoint, as he shot just 40.6 percent from the field and 34.7 percent from distance. He showed some upside on defense, averaging a combined 2.1 steals-plus-blocks per 36 minutes, but those aren't gaudy numbers. Vassell should have more opportunities this season with the Spurs appearing to be in a rebuild. While Doug McDermott will likely start at small forward, Vassell figures to be the primary backup, and he could see some action at shooting guard behind Derrick White. However, Vassell can probably be avoided in most drafts since it's possible, if not likely, that he sees minutes in the low-20s. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Vassell was born Aug. 23, 2000 and grew up in Suwanee, Georgia. He is the son of Cynthia and Andrew Cassell. His father, Andrew, played college ball at Stony Brook. Vassell has an older brother and an older sister. He began playing basketball at age six, playing on a 7-8-year-old team. The shooting guard attended Peachtree Ridge High School, where after his senior season he was named regional Player of the Year by the Gwinnett Daily Post. For college, Vassell attended Florida State and majored in Sport Management. With the Seminoles, he was voted Second-team All-ACC in 2020 after his sophomore season. He then declared himself eligible for the 2020 NBA Draft. Fans can follow the high scoring wing on Twitter @Yvngdevo and on Instagram @Devin_Vassell. Vassell made significant strides in his game between his freshman and sophomore seasons at Florida State, propelling him to the first round of the 2020 NBA Draft. As a freshman, the 6-6 wing was a role player, averaging 4.5 points in 10.7 minutes across 33 contests. Everything ramped up in 2019-20, however, as Vassell became a full-time starter and increased his playing time to 28.8 MPG. He used that opportunity to produce 12.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.4 steals. Vassell's best showing of the year came in a Jan. 18 contest against the Hurricanes, where he put up 23 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. Three games later against Virginia Tech, he put up a collegiate career high with 27 points on 8-of-10 shooting. While the stats weren't necessarily eye-popping, Vassell's stock continued to rise due to his efficiency. He finished sixth in the ACC in PER, and was first in the conference in turnover percentage. The Seminoles finished that season with a 26-5 record and were in line for a No. 2 seed in the NCAAA tournament, though it was ultimately canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Florida State product was a relatively late-riser up draft boards after a breakout sophomore season, going No. 11 to the Spurs. Vassell averaged 12.7 points per game, adding 5.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 steals in 28.8 minutes for the Seminoles. He shot better than 41 percent from three in two collegiate seasons, but he's not a good free-throw shooter, so he'll face some questions about whether his jump shot will translate. In San Antonio, Vassell will likely slide in as a bench piece, though it remains to be seen if the Spurs will look to move players like DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge, which could trigger a more youth-oriented rotation.
