Jaden Ivey

22-Year-Old GuardG
Detroit Pistons
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Ivey impressed in his rookie year after being selected No. 5 overall in the 2022 NBA Draft. He offers impressive athleticism and playmaking abilities for someone his age. The 21-year-old averaged 16.3 points, 5.2 assists and 3.9 rebounds in 31.1 minutes across 74 appearances. Ivey struggled with his efficiency, shooting just 41.6 percent from the field, 34.3 percent from three and 74.7 percent from the free-throw line. The hope is that he improves his efficiency in his second year, as most guards struggle right out of the gate in the NBA. The Pistons added Ausar Thompson with the No. 5 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft and will have Cade Cunningham healthy to start the season after playing in just 12 contests last year. This means that Ivey will likely have the ball in his hands less next season, but could also help him find easier looks. Thompson, in particular, should prove a quality option to pass to in transition to pick up extra assists. A major positive for Ivey is his availability, as few other starters in the NBA missed eight or fewer contests last year. While Ivey may not see a massive statistical jump in his sophomore campaign, the young guard is still capable of improving upon his production and is well worth a late-round pick in fantasy.

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Jaden Edward Dhananjay Ivey was born Feb. 13, 2002 in Mishawaka, Indiana. His mother, Niele Ivey, serves as the head women's basketball coach at Notre Dame at the time of Jaden being drafted. She played in the WNBA for five seasons and was an All-American at Notre Dame. Jaden's father, Javin Hunter, played in the NFL for the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. Jaden's grandfather, James Hunter, also played in the NFL for the Detroit Lions. Ivey has one brother, Jordan Hunter. Ivey was a multi-sport athlete growing up, playing football and soccer in addition to basketball, and he practiced karate, but he began focusing on hoops as a freshman in high school. For his first three years, he played at Marian High School in Mishawaka, Indiana. For his final year, he transferred to La Lumiere School in La Porte, Indiana -- one of the country's top programs. He also played in the 2021 U19 FIBA Team World Cup, where he averaged 12.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.6 steals in 16 minutes per game while the United States brought home the Gold medal. Ivey was a consensus four-star recruit and committed to play college ball at Purdue. Starting 12 of 23 games as a freshman, the guard averaged 11.1 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 24.2 minutes and was named to the All-Big Ten Freshman Team. Starting 34 of 36 games as a sophomore, Ivey enjoyed a breakout campaign behind 17.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 31.5 minutes. He was named to the All-Big Ten First Team and Consensus All-American Second Team. Following his sophomore season, he declared for the 2022 NBA Draft and was selected with the fifth overall pick by the Detroit Pistons.

Scores 23 points Saturday
GDetroit Pistons
February 11, 2024
Ivey closed Saturday's 112-106 loss to the Clippers with 23 points (10-21 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 36 minutes.
ANALYSIS
Ivey might have needed 21 shots to score 23 points, but his stat line was decent, as he took on a scoring role alongside Cade Cunningham in the backcourt. Ivey has been on a tear of late and is going through the most productive stretch of his career, as he's averaging 26.4 points per game while shooting 51.6 percent from the field over his last five outings.

Earns another Rising Star nod
GDetroit Pistons
January 31, 2024
Ivey has been selected among 10 second-year players to participate in the Rising Stars Game at NBA All-Star Weekend. Ivey was selected for the 2023 Rising Stars Game last season as well.
ANALYSIS
Ivey is the lone Piston to be featured in the event, as Ausar Thompson's defensive talent is overshadowed by his complete lack of shooting, and Marcus Sasser's excellent 40.0 percent shooting from beyond the arc comes in too small of a sample size. Ivey is finishing off a strong month of January, averaging 17.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 28.9 minutes across 14 contests.
See All NBA Rumors
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Selected fifth in the 2022 NBA Draft, Ivey wasted no time displaying his talent. He put on a show in his two Summer League appearances with 15.5 points, 4.0 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.5 threes over 18.8 minutes per game before suffering a minor ankle injury and being shut down for the remainder of exhibition play. He possesses elite quickness and athleticism, which should help him create his own shots at the NBA level. Ivey impressed as a freshman in college in 2020-21, but he took a major leap as a shooter last season, including an improvement to a respectable 35.8 percent conversion rate from beyond the arc. He figures to form a dynamic young tandem alongside second-year point guard Cade Cunningham, who pieced together an impressive rookie campaign last season for the Pistons. Ivey may not play on the ball as much as he did last season at Purdue, but the rookie should get plenty of opportunities to score and certainly can handle and distribute the rock when called upon. His landing spot on a rebuilding Pistons squad should afford him plenty of playing time as a rookie, and Ivey's athleticism should allow him to impact the game on both ends of the floor. That being said, Ivey should primarily be seen as a scorer for fantasy purposes, though ancillary box score production could materialize depending on how trusting coach Dwane Casey is of the rookie. It's understandable if fantasy managers in standard formats who are high on Ivey gamble on him with a late or final pick, but chances are, he'll be better suited for deep leagues and dynasty/keeper formats.
