2023 Fantasy Outlook
George will enter his first season in the NBA as one of the more intriguing prospects from this class. He spent one year at Baylor prior to being drafted, averaging 15.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.3 three-pointers per game. He backed up his impressive college stint with a standout performance at the 2023 Summer League. Across six games, he averaged 18.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.8 three-pointers in 26.4 minutes per game. He turned more than a few heads, putting himself on the standard league radar before a ball had even been bounced. The Jazz are certainly not loaded when it comes to viable point guard options. Collin Sexton and Jordan Clarkson are likely to get the first look at the role, although neither are true point guards. If George is able to build off his strong preseason, he could see an uptick in playing time sooner rather than later. He isn't worth drafting outside of deeper formats but could be a sneaky addition, should he land the starting role at some point. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Keyonte George played his only collegiate season at Baylor, where he averaged 15.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.3 three-pointers per game on his way to Big 12 Rookie of the Year honors. George was also an All-Big 12 Second Team and Big 12 All-Freshman Team selection. George scored in double figures in 23 of 33 appearances for Baylor, topping out with 32 points, to go with seven rebounds, in a win over West Virginia on Jan. 11. George reached the 20-point mark 11 other times on the season, including in games against Norfolk State (Nov. 11) and Kansas State (Feb. 21) when he rained in a career-high six three-pointers. As a high-schooler, George was considered a top-10 prospect and a consensus five-star recruit. A true combo guard who could play both backcourt spots in the NBA, George is a bit of a tweener at 6-foot-4, but his athleticism and body control allow him to create space and get his shot off against bigger defenders. George is an excellent scorer off the dribble, capable of getting to the rim with either hand while also using footwork to generate space. George was a hot-and-cold three-point shooter at Baylor (33.8% 3PT), but he shot nearly 80 percent at the free throw line and projects as a plus floor-spacer at the next level. Like most mid-to-late-lottery prospects, George will require some development, but the tools are there for him to develop into a starting-caliber combo guard in the NBA. In a best-case scenario, George could develop into an All-Star-level talent such as Bradley Beal or Jamal Murray.

Finishes season on high note
GUtah Jazz
April 14, 2024
George provided 21 points (8-11 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), one rebound and four assists over 20 minutes during Sunday's 123-116 loss to Golden State.
ANALYSIS
George finished the campaign on a strong note after registering 20 or more points in three of his last five appearances. Despite sharing backcourt duties with Jordan Clarkson (back) and Collin Sexton (illness), George took over the starting point guard role on Feb. 12 after the deadline and thrived, emerging as a viable long-term piece in Utah's rebuilding process. He finishes the season with averages of 13.0 points, 4.4 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game.
