2022 Fantasy Outlook
A late-riser up the prospect charts, Sharpe was essentially off the radar until late in high school. And while he committed to play collegiately at Kentucky, he never saw the floor, opting to sit out the year to better prepare for the NBA. That's created an air of mystery around the Canadian wing, who went No. 7 overall in the 2022 NBA Draft to the Trail Blazers. Sharpe's minimal Summer League action before suffering a labral tear in his left shoulder - he's expected to be ready for camp - adds to the mystery. Sharpe compares his game to Devin Booker and Bradley Beal, so it shouldn't surprise anyone that his strengths are ballhandling and perimeter shooting. However, he's a better vertical athlete than the pair, sporting an unofficially-measured 40-plus-inch vertical leap. That athleticism also allows him to make contortionist layups that other shooting guards can't. His off-ball defense is lacking, but, in theory, strong NBA coaching can fix that. He at least has the physical tools to be disruptive on that end. But, for as much potential as he has, it's not clear if he'll play enough as a rookie to be fantasy relevant. Damian Lillard and Anfernee Simons are starting in the backcourt, and Sharpe will have to compete against Gary Payton, Josh Hart and Keon Johnson for backup minutes. A best-case scenario is probably a sixth-man role, but that's pretty optimistic. For now, Sharpe is a better target in keeper/dynasty leagues. Read Past Outlooks
Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Shaedon Sharpe was born in May of 2003 in London, Ontario, Canada. There, he played basketball for H.B. Beal Secondary School and led his team to the 2018 Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations AAA title. As a sophomore, he transferred to Sunrise Christian Academy in Bel Aire, Kansas. As a junior, he transferred to Dream City Christian School in Glendale, Arizona and stepped into a big role. Sharpe also played AAU for team UPLAY Canada. Representing the Canadian national team at the 2019 U16 Americas Championship, he averaged 13.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals in 21 minutes per game while the team won the silver medal. Sharpe was the No. 1 player in the 2022 high school class before reclassifying to the 2021 class, where he was ranked as the third-best player by 247Sports and Rivals. His success at the Nike Elite Youth Basketball league in 2021 helped vault his recruiting grade after being unranked by major recruiting services early in high school. Sharpe graduated early from high school and redshirted his freshman year at Kentucky (2021-22). But he never played a game for the Wildcats. After the redshirt season, Sharpe declared for the 2022 NBA Draft, forgoing his remaining college eligibility. With the seventh overall pick, Sharpe was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers.

Still on track for training camp

August 12, 2022
Sharpe (shoulder) has returned to shooting drills and remains on track to be fully healthy by training camp, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Sharpe suffered the injury during his Summer League debut, but he avoided surgery and appears to be progressing through rehab quickly. The Kentucky commit didn't suit up for the Wildcats last year but was still selected seventh overall in the 2022 Draft. The 6-foot-4 wing projects to be one of the top guards off the bench in Portland.
