Davion Mitchell

23-Year-Old GuardG
2021 Fantasy Outlook
One of the breakout stars in college basketball last season, Mitchell helped carry the Baylor Bears to a win over Gonzaga in the National Championship Game. The No. 9 overall pick joins a Kings roster that already features De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield and Tyrese Haliburton, so it's not immediately clear where he'll fit in. At worst, Mitchell figures to serve as the backup point guard, but he may have trouble gaining fantasy relevance in Year 1 -- particularly if his three-point shot doesn't translate. To his credit, Mitchell knocked down an outstanding 44.7 percent of his looks last season, but he shot just 32.4 percent and 28.8 percent, respectively, in his previous two collegiate seasons. He's also a very poor free throw shooter for a guard, hitting just 64.1 percent of his attempts in 2020-21. Steals will be the other category to keep a close eye on. Mitchell has already built a strong reputation as an elite, intense one-on-one defender -- 1.9 SPG last season -- and he only bolstered it during Summer League play. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Mitchell's three-year collegiate career ended with a ring, as he and the Baylor Bears were crowned 2021 NCAA National Champions. His career began at Auburn, though, where Mitchell appeared primarily as a reserve, logging 17.1 mpg in 34 contests. He proceeded to transfer and sit a season before catching on with Baylor, where he earned a starting spot immediately. Mitchell's junior year saw him average 9.9 points and 3.8 assists en route to third-team All-Big 12 honors. He ramped up his production in a major way the following season, making the first-team All-Big 12 behind averages of 14.0 ppg, 5.5. apg and 2.7 rpg. His efficiency couldn't be matched within the conference, as he led the Big 12 in true shooting percentage and effective field-goal percentage. Most impressive were his defensive contributions, however, as Mitchell was named to the conference all-defensive team for the second consecutive season, as well as named 2020-21 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year.

Out of starting five
GSacramento Kings
October 14, 2021
Mitchell is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's preseason finale, Franklin Cartoscelli of Sports 1140 KHTK reports.
ANALYSIS
Mitchell got an opportunity in the starting five Monday with Tyrese Haliburton out for rest. The rookie led the Kings in scoring with 20 points (7-12 FG, 6-9 3Pt) to go along with four assists, two rebounds and a steal in 32 minutes. There likely isn't a spot for him in the starting lineup to begin the season, but he will certainly have a significant role.
