Theo Maledon
19-Year-Old GuardG
2020 Fantasy Outlook
A second-round pick in the 2020 draft, Maledon enters the NBA as a 19-year-old point guard with great size (6-5, 198) for the position. This may be more of a developmental year for the Frenchman, but Maledon lands in a great fantasy situation in Oklahoma City. With the Thunder embracing a rebuild, Maledon will likely see more opportunity as a rookie than he would have with almost any other franchise. He projects to open the season as the third, or possibly fourth, point guard, but as the season wears on, the Thunder's coaching staff may look to a more youth-focused rotation. Maledon should not be drafted in the vast majority of leagues, but he's worth a flier in dynasty formats. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Theo Maledon was born June 12, 2001 in Rouen, a city on the River Seine in northern France. Both of his parents, Sylvie and Claude, played organized basketball in France. And his sister, Lena, played college basketball in the United States for Ranger College and Southern Arkansas. As a youth, Theo began playing basketball with his local club Mesnil-Esnard in Seine-Maritime and then SPO Rouen. As a 14-year-old, Maledon earned a scholarship to join the National Institute of Sport, Expertise, and Performance (INSEP), a sports institute in Paris. He played two seasons for INSEP's NM1 and U-18 teams. In April of 2017, Maledon played and scored 15 points in the Jordan Brand Classic Global Showcase at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The young point guard signed his first professional contract in August, 2018 with ASVEL, after playing for their junior team the prior season. Maledon has played for the U-16, U-17 and Senior French national teams.

College/International Summary

Prior to playing in the NBA, Theo Maledon played professionally in France. On June 16, 2017, the scrappy point guard joined the junior team of LNB Pro A club ASVEL which played in the LNB Espoirs, the French U21 league. The team is located in Villeurbanne, a suburb of Lyon, France. Maledon scored 10 points and dished five assists in his debut for the U-21 ASVEL squad. He made his Pro A debut on September 24, 2017 at age 16, making him the second youngest debutant in team history. In August of 2018, Maledon signed his first professional contract via a three-year agreement with ASVEL. In French Pro A and EuroCup play, Maledon posted 6.8 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists over 17 minutes per game as a 17-year-old during the 2018-19 season. Maledon returned to ASVEL and made his EuroLeague debut. In his second EuroLeague game, Maledon suffered a shoulder injury that forced him to miss over a month of court action. He returned to EuroLeague play in January. Over 22 EuroLeague games, Maledon delivered 7.4 points, 3.1 assists and 0.8 three-pointers in 17.7 minutes per game before the season was cut short due to COVID-19 concerns. After the season, Maledon declared himself eligible for the 2020 NBA Draft.

Shooting woes continue
GOklahoma City Thunder
April 19, 2021
Maledon had 14 points (5-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and five assists across 29 minutes in Monday's loss against the Wizards.
ANALYSIS
Maledon had another woeful shooting performance and those issues are becoming more and more persistent -- he entered this game shooting 31.3 percent from the field over his last five contests and didn't do much to improve those figures. Maledon was coming off four single-digit scoring outputs in his previous five games as well, so his stats were encouraging -- but his shooting percentages remain subpar. Either way, Maledon has the starting point guard role locked down while Shai Gilgeous-Alexander recovers from a foot injury.
