Buddy Hield was moved to a bench role for the Kings on Wednesday against the Celtics, scoring 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting (including two threes) with seven boards, two assists and three blocks in 27 minutes.
Hield struggled early and then got his numbers in garbage time. The move to the bench is smart since he’s basically a scorer-only right now and he’s bogging down offensive sets most of the time. He has a nice fantasy stat set but the Kings are kind of an early mess and he’s not a must-own player in 12-team formats.
