Jalen Green

19-Year-Old GuardG
2021 Fantasy Outlook
A few years from now, it wouldn't be shocking if Green emerges as the best player from the 2021 draft. But in terms of immediate fantasy impact, he's in a tier just below Cade Cunningham. A natural, polished scorer, Green will be the favorite to lead all rookies in points per game. He shined in three Summer League games, and his G League Ignite numbers imply that he'll carry a high three-point attempt rate. While that will likely lead to a relatively pedestrian field goal percentage, that's par for the course when it comes to rookie guards. In terms of non-scoring stats, Green averaged 4.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.5 steals in 15 G League games (32.0 MPG), so while points will be his calling card, he can still offer some non-scoring production. The biggest question for Green is where he'll fall in the hierarchy for a rebuilding Rockets team that features a borderline-All-Star in Christian Wood and a high-volume gunner in Kevin Porter Jr. However, Green's development should take precedence over Wood and Porter.

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Jalen Romande Green was born in February of 2002 in Merced, California, but grew up in Livingston, California. He is the son of mother Bree Puruganan and step-father Marcus Green and has a younger sister. Green initially played his high school basketball at San Joaquin Memorial. As a freshman, he delivered 18.1 points and nine rebounds per contest and earned MaxPreps Freshman All-American second-team honors. In his sophomore season, Green led San Joaquin to a Central Section Division II title and was named MaxPreps National Sophomore of the Year. In his third season at San Joaquin, Green averaged 30.1 points per game and again lead the team to a DII title. Green then transferred to Prolific Prep in Napa, California, where he led the team to a Grind Session world championship. Green also earned Sports Illustrated's All-American Player of the Year award. The five-star recruit decided to sign with the NBA G League's new Ignite team instead of committing to a major college program. Green was the first player to join Ignite. The Ignite were created to play exhibition games outside the G League's traditional schedule as part of a one-year development program for elite NBA prospects. With the Ignite, Green posted 17.9 points and 4.1 boards per G League contest. In July of 2021, Green was selected by the Houston Rockets with the second overall pick in the NBA Draft.

Brutal offensive night in loss
GHouston Rockets
January 22, 2022
Green registered three points (0-11 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds and three assists over 25 minutes during Friday's 105-103 loss to the Warriors.
ANALYSIS
The rookie had strung together a nice 12-game run since returning from a hamstring injury, but he's now struggled in back-to-back games against the Jazz and Warriors, respectively. Green shot just 3-of-13 from the field against Utah and missed all 11 of his attempts Friday night. Nonetheless, the rookie should be allowed to play through his growing pains on a Rockets team with its eye on the future.
