Tyrese Haliburton
21-Year-Old GuardG
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Haliburton seemed like a lock as a top-10 pick, but he slipped to the Kings at No. 12. Haliburton's strength is his playmaking ability. As a sophomore at Iowa State, he averaged 6.5 assists to just 2.8 turnovers. Haliburton has three-and-D upside as well, making 2.4 threes at 41.9 percent while also swiping 2.5 steals and blocking 0.7 shots per game. While he's not an explosive athlete and often shies away from contact around the rim, all signs indicate he'll be a productive NBA player out of the gate. For the Kings, he projects as a sixth man playing both guard spots and possibly some small forward if needed. If that's the case, he could crack the top 100 in fantasy. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $7.86 million contract with the Kings in November of 2020. Contract includes $4.22 million team option for 2022-23.
Personal Bio

Haliburton was born on Feb. 29, 2000 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He is the son of John and Brenda Haliburton. His cousin Eddie Jones was a three-time NBA All-Star who played 14 years in the NBA. Haliburton's father, John, is a basketball referee. Haliburton played high school basketball at Oshkosh North High School. In his senior season, he averaged 22.9 points, 6.2 assists, 5.1 rebounds, 3.5 steals and 1.7 blocks per game. Those stats led to Haliburton to being named USA Today All-USA Wisconsin Boys Basketball First-Team selection and as Wisconsin 2018 Gatorade Player of the Year. While at Iowa State for college, Haliburton majored in pre-business. On the court, he was named to the Second Team All-Big 12 as a sophomore. He announced on March 24, 2020, after the COVID-19 early end of the NCAA Basketball season, that he was foregoing his final two seasons of college eligibility and entering the 2020 NBA Draft.

College/International Summary

Haliburton earned a starting role by the second game of his freshman season and never looked back from there. He had a season-best 16 points Nov. 26 against Omaha, and posted his first career double-double with 15 points and 17 assists Dec. 9 against Southern. When it was all said and done, he finished seventh in the Big 12 conference with 33.2 MPG. Haliburton took on a more active role in the scoring department in his second and final season with the Cyclones, starting with a career-high 25 points Nov. 27 against Michigan. Later in conference play against TCU, he posted a triple-double with 22 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Haliburton's season was cut short by a fractured wrist in early-February, but the 6-5 point guard had done enough to impress NBA scouts and declared for the draft later in March. Despite the injury, Haliburton still earned second-team all-Big 12 honors.

Shifts back to bench
GSacramento Kings
April 14, 2021
Haliburton will come off the bench Wednesday against Washington, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
ANALYSIS
The 21-year-old started Monday and totaled 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six assists, one rebound and one steal in 31 minutes, but he'll move back to the bench with Buddy Hield (illness) returning from a one-game absence. Haliburton should still see plenty of playing time as Sacramento's sixth man.
