    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander took advantage of extended minutes in OKC and finished the season ranked 52/45 in 8/9-cat formats.

    SGA showed he had skills during his rookie year in LA but an offseason trade to OKC allowed him to fully blossom. He started the 63 games he played in, averaging a team high 35.1 minutes. The lanky guard did a little bit of everything on a nightly basis, averaging 19.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.3 assists,1.1 steals, 1.2 threes, and 0.7 blocks. He also kept his percentages decent (47% FG, 80% FT) and only turned it over 1.9 times per game. He finished last season just inside the top-150 and was expected to have a larger fantasy impact this season as his ADP was around mid-sixth round. He was able to exceed the lofty expectations for and jumped to fourth-round value on a per game basis and ranked in the top-30 on a totals basis in both 8/9-cat formats. He should continue to improve with experience and could possibly crack the top-40 in next season's drafts.
