Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Brandin Podziemski has rapidly emerged as a top-60 prospect after averaging just 4.1 minutes per game across 16 contests with Illinois as a freshman. Transferring to Santa Clara led to serious scoring and impressive accolades for Podziemski. Donned the WCC co-Player of the Year, Podziemski averaged 19.9 points on 48/44/77 percent shooting. He's also an elite rebounder for a guard, racking up 8.8 rebounds per game to go along with 3.7 assists and 1.8 steals. Podziemski is a versatile contributor, but the selling point is a smooth stroke from beyond the arc, though his relatively short wingspan will make it tougher to get his shot off in the NBA. Santa Clara has been a reliable NBA pipeline of late, with Jalen Williams illustrating that Podziemski's big numbers aren't just fluff. His shooting is impressive, and he finished with 10 points, eight assists and seven rebounds in his scrimmage at the Combine. Being small in size and stature is a concern for Podziemski, who has demonstrated a knack for initiating contact (4.5 FTA/g). Drawing fouls and canning threes is a good recipe for success if the former can translate. Some combination of rebounding prowess, reliable passing and tolerable defense will also need to translate. That said, Podziemski's shooting sets him up as a bench scorer and sparkplug. A role of 10-15 minutes per night is realistically Podziemski's usage in year one. His rebounding skills are very Josh Hart-esque. Damion Lee comes to mind as another comparison.

ANALYSIS
The Warriors announced the rookie would be in the starting lineup Thursday, but in the end, he'll coming off the bench and Chris Paul will get the nod alongside Stephen Curry in the backcourt. Podziemski is averaging 9.4 points and 5.5 rebounds per game when deployed off the bench.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Main target in Markkanen deal
GGolden State Warriors
July 17, 2024
Podziemski is the player the Jazz are most interested in getting from the Warriors as part of any package for Lauri Markkanen, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The two sides continue to discuss the parameters of a trade, but Utah doesn't feel a sense of urgency to move Markkanen and are holding out for Podziemski plus significant draft capital in any return from Golden State. The Warriors, however, are viewing the 21-year-old as a major part of their backcourt rotation in 2024-25, so if they have to ship Podziemski out to get Markkanen, they aren't willing to mortgage their future as well when it comes to first-round picks. If he doesn't get traded before then, Markkanen becomes eligible for a contract extension August 6.
