2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Kentucky product had a much more productive rookie year than anticipated with the Clippers, and his role is likely to grow with the Thunder. Gilgeous-Alexander was traded to Oklahoma City in the offseason as part of the Paul George deal, and he's slated to be the Thunder's starting two-guard for the upcoming season. He averaged 10.8 points, 3.3 assists, 2.8 boards and 1.2 steals as a rookie, logging 26.5 minutes per night and appearing in all 82 regular-season games. He looked more comfortable as the season went on, finding his rhythm within the offense and making solid contributions in the playoffs, including a career-high 25 points against Golden State on April 21. He shot a respectable field goal percentage (47.6) and three-point percentage (36.7) in his first season, and he should be afforded more shots per game with OKC. Though he'll likely start the season at shooting guard opposite Chris Paul in the backcourt, Paul's continuing inability to stay healthy may thrust Gilgeous-Alexander into the point guard role at some point, which would increase his value. Expect the second-year guard to take on a prominent role with the rebuilding Thunder, making him an interesting late-round selection in standard fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $7.33 million contract with the Clippers in July of 2018. Traded to the Thunder in July of 2019. Thunder exercised $4.14 million team option for 2020-21 in October of 2019.
Shines in Rising Stars loss
GOklahoma City Thunder
February 14, 2020
Gilgeous-Alexander had 16 points (7-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one block in 24 minutes during Friday's Team World loss to Team USA in the Rising Stars Challenge.
ANALYSIS
Gilgeous-Alexander laid on a couple of impressive moves during the loss, contributing to what was a productive night. The Thunder have been one of the more surprising teams this season and much of their success can be attributed to the play of Gilgeous-Alexander. He has been a top-50 player thus far and playing alongside Chris Paul has certainly been a blessing in disguise for the sophomore. The fact the Thunder are going to be pushing for a playoff seeding should affirm our faith in Gilgeous-Alexander and he could be a fringe third-round player the rest of the way.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Gilgeous-Alexander played just one year of college ball at Kentucky, but showed plenty of upside as an all-around prospect and averaged 14.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.7 steals across 33.7 minutes. He's an underrated shooter after knocking down 48.5 percent of his field goal attempts and 40.4 percent of his three-pointers, while he's also got very good size for the point guard position. Gilgeous-Alexander stands 6-foot-6 and has a seven-foot wingspan, which should give him the ability to matchup with a handful of different positions on the defensive side of the ball. Considering the fact that he was selected with the 11th overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft, Gilgeous-Alexander will likely be expected to contribute right away, though he'll be stuck in a bit of a logjam at the point guard position. The Clippers dealt Austin Rivers to the Wizards this offseason, but still have the likes of Patrick Beverley and Milos Teodosic in the fold, as well as fellow first-round pick Jerome Robinson. For that reason, Gilgeous-Alexander may be stuck with minutes in the teens to open the season while being mentored by Beverley. The 20-year-old rookie has plenty of room to develop and does need to add some weight, so a bench role could be beneficial in the long run.
