Sacramento Kings
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Huerter's role with the Hawks last season was the same as the previous two. He saw 29.6 minutes per game and averaged 12.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists. Encouragingly, he reached a career-high 57.0 true-shooting percentage on splits of 45/39/81. He's shown some potential as a secondary ballhandler, but he's primarily been utilized as a perimeter shooter. During the offseason, the 24-year-old was dealt to the Kings. It seems likely he'll start at shooting guard, though he'll be competing for minutes with Malik Monk, Davion Mitchell, Jeremy Lamb and Terence Davis. Huerter's role doesn't figure to change much, as the Kings will run the offense through De'Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis. Last season, Huerter ranked 151st in per-game fantasy production for eight-category leagues. He's never ranked higher than 105th, so there's no reason fantasy managers should gamble inside the top 100 for Huerter, who could end up as the fifth option in the Kings' offense. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Kevin Joseph Huerter was born in 1998 in Albany, New York. He is the son of Tom and Erin Huerter. Father Tom played collegiate basketball at Sienna College, leading them to their first ever NCAA Tournament in 1989. Kevin has a brother and two sisters. His brother, Thomas Jr., also played basketball at Sienna. Kevin attended Shenendehowa High School in Clifton Park, just outside of Albany. He starred on the Shenendehowa's basketball and baseball team. He was the starting center fielder for the baseball team, which won the state championship his senior year. Huerter's nickname is "Red Velvet." While attending the University of Maryland, Huerter majored in Letters and Sciences. Fans can follow Red Velvet on Twitter @KevinHuerter and on Instagram @kevin_huerter. While Huerter was at Maryland for two seasons, coach Mark Turgeon did not have to figure out who to start at one of the wing spots. The 6-7 guard started all 65 games in which he appeared for the Terrapins. In 2016-17, he started next to fellow freshman Justin Jackson and provided 9.3 points and 4.9 rebounds, while hitting 37.1 percent of his 3-pointers. Huerter scored 19 points in both of his postseason games as a freshman (losses to Northwestern in the Big 10 Tournament and Xavier in the first round of the NCAA Tournament). The guard increased his volume as a sophomore and pushed his averages to 14.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game, while making 41.7 percent of his long-range shots. He hit seven 3-pointers in a November loss at Syracuse. Huerter scored at least 11 points in his last 25 games before declaring for the 2018 NBA Draft, where he was chosen by the Atlanta Hawks with the 19th overall pick.

April 18, 2023
Huerter notched 15 points (6-14 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two blocks and one steal over 30 minutes during Monday's 114-106 win over the Warriors in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.
ANALYSIS
Huerter couldn't find any rhythm from deep for a second straight game, but he was still able to make an impact in the scoring column by showing off his versatility. The Maryland product also recorded at least one mark in each defensive category and was one of five Kings to grab at least five boards in the Game 2 victory.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Emerging from slump?
GSacramento Kings
December 8, 2022
Huerter connected on three triples Wednesday, but he has shot just 18.9 percent from beyond the arc across his last six games.
ANALYSIS
Even with Wednesday's mini-resurgence, Huerter is amid a 7-of-37 skid from deep. Prior to this span, Huerter was on fire from three-point range, hitting 49.6 percent of 7.4 attempts per game. It'll be interesting to see where Huerter's mean lies. Through 23 games, the 24-year-old has averaged 15.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists on a 47.7/42.6/69.2 percent shooting slash.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2019
2018
With the Hawks adding a ton of talent and depth during the 2020 offseason, Huerter's production took a slight step back. However, he was still plenty productive and crucial to Atlanta's gameplan. The third-year guard averaged 11.9 points, 3.5 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 30.8 minutes. He also made 2.0 threes per game at 36.3 percent. That resulted in Huerter ranking 122nd in fantasy on a per-game basis. Heading into 2021-22, Huerter's role shouldn't change significantly, as the Hawks practically made no moves in the offseason. There's potential for him to see fewer minutes if Cam Reddish takes a real step forward, but there's always a chance Huerter himself takes a step forward. De'Andre Hunter will also be healthy after missing much of last season, which impedes Huerter's path to easy playing time. Still, Huerter should be able to garner sixth-man minutes easily and provide some three-point shooting and secondary playmaking. His upside is relatively low, however, so he's more of a deep-league selection.
Huerter made quality improvements during the 2019-20 season with the Hawks -- his sophomore campaign. In 31.4 minutes per game, the 6-foot-7 shooting guard averaged 12.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 2.3 threes and 1.4 combined steals-plus-blocks. He also had six 20-point games and two double-doubles. That resulted in Huerter ranking 105th on a per-game basis in eight-category fantasy leagues. Heading into 2020-21, the sharpshooter and secondary playmaker will look to keep building those skills for the revamped Hawks, who have playoff aspirations. However, his role is in jeopardy. The Hawks made splashes this offseason by adding both Bogdan Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari, the former being a direct threat to Huerter's usage. It's possible Galliari comes off the bench and Huerter still starts, but the path to 30-plus minutes won't be free this time around.
Huerter put together a solid rookie season with Atlanta last year, earning far more playing time than anticipated when he was selected 19th overall. Projected as a role player, he started 59 of 75 games played and logged significant minutes (27.3 per game). In his first year, the Maryland product finished with 9.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. He also drained 1.8 threes at a 38.5 percent clip, living up to his pre-draft expectations as a sharpshooter. He'll start the 2019-20 season as the likely starter at shooting guard, where he could push for increased minutes and take a step forward in his overall play. Huerter seems like a good bet for another year of consistent production in threes, but he can be an even more valuable fantasy contributor if he can improve on his rebounding, assist numbers and defense.
Huerter spent just two seasons at Maryland, using a strong sophomore campaign and an impressive showing at the NBA Combine to vault him into a first-round pick. He profiles first and foremost as a deep-ball threat. Huerter canned 2.3 three-pointers per game at a 41.7 percent clip, helping him finish with a final average of 14.7 points. The 6-foot-7 wing also added 5.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists, while knocking down 50.3 percent of his field goal attempts despite nearly half of those attempts coming from beyond the arc. After being selected with the 19th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Huerter should slot in as a key reserve on the wing in Atlanta. However, Kent Bazemore is locked into the starting shooting guard spot and offseason addition Jeremy Lin has the ability to play off the ball, which will likely hurt Huerter's chances of logging big minutes as a rookie. It wouldn't be surprising to see his role increase as the season progresses and the Hawks are eliminated from the playoffs, but either way, Huerter is still likely only worth a look in dynasty leagues.
