Jalen Suggs

20-Year-Old GuardG
Orlando Magic  NBA  
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The dynamic guard helped lead Gonzaga to the National Championship Game behind averages of 14.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.9 steals to go with a 50-34-75 shooting line. The three-point and free-throw percentages are somewhat concerning, but Suggs has a smooth-looking jumpshot that should improve with time. Other than Cade Cunningham, Suggs projects as the most well-rounded fantasy player in the class - especially if his high steal rate translates to the next level. Suggs joins a Magic roster in dire need of a player with true star potential. Cole Anthony had an encouraging rookie year and Markelle Fultz was looking better before tearing his ACL, but Suggs is immediately the top asset for a team loaded with cast-offs and theoretical three-and-D wings. It will be interesting to see how Orlando handles the Suggs-Anthony pairing, but Suggs' ability to play both guard spots is a significant mark in his favor. With the Magic mired into a multi-year rebuild and destined for the lottery again in 2022, Suggs is in as good of a stat-producing position as any rookie in the class. In three Summer League appearances, Suggs fared well, putting up 15.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.0 block in just 21.8 minutes per game. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

As a freshman, Suggs averaged 14.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists for a deep and talented Gonzaga team that didn't taste defeat until the National Championship game. While he wasn't as ball-dominant as some of the other one-and-done freshmen in the class, Suggs' athleticism stood out whenever he took the court, especially on the defensive end. He led the West Coast Conference in defensive rating and defensive win shares, plus checked in at No. 11 in the country in total steals. Suggs flirted with the elusive triple-double on multiple occasions, including an 18-point/10-rebound/6-assist effort against USC in the Elite Eight. His shining moment came in the Final Four against UCLA, however, as Suggs hit a game-winning three from just inside halfcourt to propel Gonzaga to the title game, where the Zags ultimately fell to Baylor.

Nears double-double Friday
GOrlando Magic
January 22, 2022
Suggs had 22 points (6-16 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 9-10 FT), four rebounds, nine assists, two blocks and two steals in 35 minutes during Friday's 116-105 loss to the Lakers.
ANALYSIS
Suggs led the Magic in scoring Friday despite shooting just 14.3 percent from beyond the arc in the loss. The 20-year-old has been productive since returning to the court, as he's averaged 14.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 27.2 minutes per game across his last five appearances. Suggs has played at least 34 minutes as a starter in each of the last two games, so he's now back to a full workload after initially having his playing time monitored.
