2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bazley's journey to the NBA was an unconventional one. He originally committed to play at Syracuse as a five-star recruit out of high school before electing to bypass college and play in the G League. He then elected to bypass the G League and interned at New Balance to go along with his endorsement deal. Even though he spent a year away from competitive basketball, Bazley's physical tools are enough for him to remain an intriguing prospect. At 6-foot-10 with a 7-foot wingspan, Bazley boasts the frame of a prototypical versatile forward in today's NBA, but he has a long way to go as a fairly raw prospect. Given the number of versatile athletes Oklahoma City already has on its roster, it may be a year or two before Bazley becomes a reliable contributor at the next level. He was also underwhelming at summer league, averaging 4.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 blocks across 21.7 minutes in four appearances. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $4.68 million contract with the Thunder in July of 2019.
Puts up 11 points
FOklahoma City Thunder
July 12, 2019
Bazley supplied 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 27 minutes during Friday's 69-68 win over Croatia in the consolation bracket of the Las Vegas Summer League.
ANALYSIS
The 2019 first-round pick is showing some growing pains in Summer League play. At only 19, Bazley has already had an adventurous career where he decided to forego a college stint at Syracuse as well as a G-LEague offer. There's no doubt that the youngster has the goods to play at the next level, but he needs a lot of seasoning.and won't be ready to step in as a reasonable alternative for Paul George anytime soon.
