2019 Fantasy Outlook
A 6-foot-4, 237-pound freshman out of Iowa State, Horton-Tucker landed on the Lakers with the 46th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. Named to the Big 12 All-Rookie Team and All-Big 12 Honorable Mention Team, Horton-Tucker averaged 11.8 points on 10.9 shots, 4.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals across 27.2 minutes, starting 34 of his 35 appearances. Arguably his best game against an in-conference opponent occurred during an 83-66 victory over Butler in the Big 12 Tournament, with Horton-Tucker posting 21 points on 15 shots, four rebounds, three blocks, two assists and one steal in 35 minutes. Considering the Lakers have a deep wing rotation and are in win-now mode, it seems unlikely Horton-Tucker will secure a spot as an every-night player. There's a strong chance he sees most of his minutes in the G League as a rookie. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $2.42 million contract with the Lakers in July of 2019.

College/International Summary

After leading Simeon High School in Chicago to three straight Illinois state titles, Horton-Tucker went to Iowa State to play for coach Steve Prohm. Despite spending just one season with the Cyclones, the 6-foot-4 guard showed off a diverse array of skills, providing 11.8 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals per contest. He started all but one game (on Senior Night). Horton-Tucker had a breakout game against Illinois in the Maui Invitational with 26 points, 14 rebounds and six assists. He scored 20 points or more five times during the season but never eclipsed the 26-point mark again. The guard helped the Cyclones win the Big 12 Tournament Championship with averages of 11.7 points and 4.0 rebounds. After the season, Tucker-Horton declared for the 2019 NBA Draft and was chosen by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 46th overall pick.

Horton-Tucker had 14 points (6-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and four rebounds in Thursday's loss to the Kings.
ANALYSIS
In the starting with a few regulars resting, the rookie played a team-high 34 minutes. Horton-Tucker was a non-factor for virtually the entire regular season, but he may be lined up for a small role in the rotation to begin the playoffs.
