Jonathan Kuminga

19-Year-Old ForwardF
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Early in the draft process, Kuminga was viewed as a potential No. 1 overall pick, but by the time the draft rolled around, evaluators were decidedly undecided on the 18-year-old, who spent last season alongside Jalen Green with the G League Ignite. At 6-6, 210 with top-tier athleticism, Kuminga certainly looks the part of an elite NBA wing, but his effort and decision-making raised question marks, as did his 39-25-63 shooting splits. Despite the inefficiency, Kuminga still got to 15.9 points per game - while adding 7.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.9 steals/blocks - but he'll enter the year as perhaps the top boom-or-bust candidate among rookies. For fantasy purposes, Kuminga is too risky to warrant anything but a late-round pick in most standard leagues. And even if does look better than advertised -- he made some head-turning plays in Summer League -- he'll be stuck behind Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green, James Wiseman, and perhaps even Otto Porter, in the pecking order.

Over 13 games with the Ignite, Kuminga averaged 15.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1 steal and 0.8 blocks per game.
