2021 Fantasy Outlook
Haliburton turned heads in his first NBA campaign, earning a selection to the All-Rookie First Team on the strength of 13.0 points, 5.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 2.1 three-pointers and 1.3 steals per contest. He was especially effective in 20 games as a starter, posting per-game averages of 14.9 points and 6.0 dimes. The Iowa State product couldn't match the scoring output of Anthony Edwards or LaMelo Ball -- the only two first-year players to finish ahead of him in Rookie of the Year voting -- but he was a much more efficient shooter, knocking down 47.2 percent of his field-goal tries (including 40.9 percent of his attempts from three-point range) and 85.7 percent of his shots from the charity stripe. Haliburton's refined offensive game is a boon to a talented young Kings squad that is looking to end a 15-year playoff drought, but there is some uncertainty regarding how the backcourt will shake out. De'Aaron Fox remains the unquestioned focal point of the offense, and Buddy Hield started every game in which he played last season. Haliburton has performed well next to Fox and seems deserving of a larger role, so Hield could very well end up as the sixth man (if he isn't traded). The addition of rookie Davion Mitchell -- the recently crowned 2021 NBA Sumer League co-MVP -- further complicates the picture, though he isn't likely to significantly threaten Haliburton's minutes off the bat. Despite the mini-logjam, there's zero doubt that Haliburton will get significant playing time in his sophomore campaign. He appears safe as a mid-round selection in fantasy drafts. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Haliburton was born on Feb. 29, 2000 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He is the son of John and Brenda Haliburton. His cousin Eddie Jones was a three-time NBA All-Star who played 14 years in the NBA. Haliburton's father, John, is a basketball referee. Haliburton played high school basketball at Oshkosh North High School. In his senior season, he averaged 22.9 points, 6.2 assists, 5.1 rebounds, 3.5 steals and 1.7 blocks per game. Those stats led to Haliburton to being named USA Today All-USA Wisconsin Boys Basketball First-Team selection and as Wisconsin 2018 Gatorade Player of the Year. While at Iowa State for college, Haliburton majored in pre-business. On the court, he was named to the Second Team All-Big 12 as a sophomore. He announced on March 24, 2020, after the COVID-19 early end of the NCAA Basketball season, that he was foregoing his final two seasons of college eligibility and entering the 2020 NBA Draft.

College/International Summary

Haliburton earned a starting role by the second game of his freshman season and never looked back from there. He had a season-best 16 points Nov. 26 against Omaha, and posted his first career double-double with 15 points and 17 assists Dec. 9 against Southern. When it was all said and done, he finished seventh in the Big 12 conference with 33.2 MPG. Haliburton took on a more active role in the scoring department in his second and final season with the Cyclones, starting with a career-high 25 points Nov. 27 against Michigan. Later in conference play against TCU, he posted a triple-double with 22 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Haliburton's season was cut short by a fractured wrist in early-February, but the 6-5 point guard had done enough to impress NBA scouts and declared for the draft later in March. Despite the injury, Haliburton still earned second-team all-Big 12 honors.

Knee
June 10, 2021
During a recent appearance on JJ Redick's 'The Old Man & the Three' podcast, Haliburton indicated that he's fully recovered from the knee injury that cost him the final eight games of the season. "I'm 100 percent," Haliburton said. "I'm doing all of my workouts 100 percent right now. I feel perfectly fine. I think more than anything it was a scare."
ANALYSIS
Last month, it was reported that Haliburton did not expect to miss any time over the summer, but it's nonetheless encouraging to hear it from the player himself. The Iowa State product had a fantastic rookie season, averaging 13.0 points, 5.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 2.1 threes across 57 games before sustaining the knee injury against Dallas on May 2. Haliburton finished the season with a 47-41-86 shooting line, and he'll head into 2021-22 as a player who will likely be a popular mid-round target in season-long fantasy formats.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Haliburton seemed like a lock as a top-10 pick, but he slipped to the Kings at No. 12. Haliburton's strength is his playmaking ability. As a sophomore at Iowa State, he averaged 6.5 assists to just 2.8 turnovers. Haliburton has three-and-D upside as well, making 2.4 threes at 41.9 percent while also swiping 2.5 steals and blocking 0.7 shots per game. While he's not an explosive athlete and often shies away from contact around the rim, all signs indicate he'll be a productive NBA player out of the gate. For the Kings, he projects as a sixth man playing both guard spots and possibly some small forward if needed. If that's the case, he could crack the top 100 in fantasy.
