Tyrese Maxey

20-Year-Old GuardG
2021 Fantasy Outlook
In his rookie season, Maxey was able to play very efficiently despite not having a set role with the Sixers. Of his 61 appearances, he played 20-plus minutes in 23 of them, but also played fewer than 10 minutes in 23 games. However, when the Kentucky product was given opportunities, he certainly showed promise, as he scored his career-high 39 points in just the tenth game of his career. In the entirety of the season, Maxey averaged 8.0 points, 2.0 assists and 1.7 rebounds while shooting a solid 46.2 percent from the field. Now, with Ben Simmons wanting out of Philadelphia, Maxey could be destined for a much larger role with the team in the 2021-22 campaign. If the 20-year-old can see enough minutes, he could gain relevance in deeper formats. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Maxey was born Nov. 4, 2000 in Dallas, Texas. He is the son of Denyse and Tyrone Maxey. His father, Tyrone, played basketball at Washington State and is the Director of Recruiting for SMU's basketball team. Tyrese has three sisters: Denasia, Talia and Keiara. Maxey has seen every Marvel movie since 2008. Maxey played his high school ball at South Garland High School in Garland, Texas, where he graduated in the top 5% of his class. He was named to the 2018 USA Today All-Texas First Team and was a McDonald's All-American selection. After high school, he was tabbed as the No. 10 overall prospect by the Recruiting Services Consensus Index. For college, he chose Kentucky over Texas, Michigan, Michigan State and Oklahoma State. During his one year at Kentucky, Maxey performed exploratory studies in agriculture before opting to leave college to pursue an NBA career. Fans can follow the guard via @TyreseMaxey on both Twitter and Instagram.

College/International Summary

A consensus five-star recruit coming out of high school, Maxey was able to live up to expectations in his first and only season with Kentucky. He made his collegiate debut in a high-profile game Nov. 5 against Michigan State, scoring 26 points off the bench in a seven-point victory. Maxey moved into the starting lineup three games later and never looked back. His season-high of 27 points came in an OT victory Dec. 28 against Louisville, and he posted a season-best eight assists just a few games later against Georgia. When it was all said and done, Maxey finished third on the team in scoring (14.0 PPG) and second in three-pointers made (33). He made the SEC All-Freshman team and was second-team All-SEC before officially declaring for the draft shortly after the season's conclusion.

Likely to start Opening Night

Maxey appears to be in line to start at point guard Wednesday night against New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
With Shake Milton (ankle) already ruled out and Ben Simmons suspended one game for conduct detrimental to the team, Maxey should have a clear path to opening the year as Philadelphia's starting point guard. At the start of camp, it looked like Maxey may be able to hold that role long-term, but he was eventually usurped by Milton, and the unexpected return of Simmons throws another wrench into the situation. As unlikely as it once seemed, Simmons could return to his starting gig once he serves the suspension and is back up to speed. His debut could come as early as Friday against Brooklyn.

On the offensive end, Maxey solidified himself as a player who can score from anywhere on the court, as he finished the season with 26 games scoring double-digit points.
