    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander orchestrated a win for the Thunder on Thursday over the New Zealand Breakers with 23 points.

    SGA was solid in this win in 23 minutes but didn't actually do much outside of score. He didn't make a 3-pointer and only had two boards and an assist. He should be in line to have a really impressive year with the Thunder starting from the bottom, especially if they trade Chris Paul.

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the Thunder to a 119-104 victory over the Mavs on Tuesday with 24 points (7-for-12 FGs, 6-for-7 FTs), four 3-pointers, four rebounds, one block, one assist and three turnovers in 26 minutes.

    Aside from SGA's assist-to-turnover ratio in this one, it was a great start to what could be a breakout season for the second-year guard. He's currently going in the seventh round of drafts, but is a wise pick in the fifth or sixth if you can afford to gamble on the upside.

    The Thunder will start Chris Paul, Dennis Schroder, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Gallinari and Steven Adams against the Mavs in preseason action on Tuesday.

    It's full-on small ball for the Thunder in this preseason action against the Mavs. Starting two short guards in CP3 and Schroder, both under 6-foot-1, is a bit interesting to say the least, especially against a Mavs backcourt featuring 6-foot-5 guards. Hopefully Donovan is tinkering with lineups for preseason purposes.

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander announced that he will not play for Canada in the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup.

    SGA plans to continue working on his game during the offseason as he prepares for a new chapter with the Thunder. Canada meanwhile appeared to be one of the favorites for the tournament, but will now be without Andrew Wiggins, Jamal Murray, Tristan Thompson, Dwight Powell, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Dillon Brooks, Trey Lyles, R.J. Barrett, Brandon Clarke, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Mfiondu Kabengele and Nik Stauskas.

  • Chris Paul

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, there are many around the league that believe that Chris Paul will start the season with the Thunder.

    The Thunder have been very busy this offseason as they have been able to inhale draft picks in return for All-Stars Russell Westbrook and Paul George. It was rumored that they would attempt to shop Paul to see if they could acquire even more assets. The team will look to have Paul mentor this team (specifically second-year player Shai-Gilgeous Alexander) as the market for Paul is not robust due to the $124M he is owed over the next three seasons. From a fantasy perspective, Paul may eat into SGA's overall value but they both will provide value come draft time.

  • Chris Paul

    Chris Paul was sent to the Thunder in a package for Russell Westbrook on Thursday night.

    This is a long play for the Thunder, but it looks like they'll go into the season with Paul on the roster. If that's the case, he should do a nice job providing tutelage to Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and may bump up his performance from last season since he might actually touch the ball.

    The Thunder have officially acquired Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

    Gilgeous-Alexander looks like the centerpiece of the Thunder's rebuild, though his fantasy stock looks dicey until Russell Westbrook is dealt. SGA had a fantastic rookie season and finished with top-100 value over the last couple of months, and when the deck is cleared he'll have the keys to the car in OKC. That should help mitigate playing with a lesser supporting cast, somewhat, and Gilgeous-Alexander remains a great dynasty asset. Top-100 returns would be a nice result for next season, so hopefully we get some quick resolution on the Westbrook situation.

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will be traded to the Thunder in the Paul George deal per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Danilo Gallinari is also getting sent across in the deal and details will continue to pour in. SGA's fantasy value most definitely takes a hit playing next to Russell Westbrook.

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is the one player that the Clippers are not willing to move in a potential trade for Anthony Davis, per Bobby Marks of ESPN.

    Gilgeous-Alexander was excellent in his rookie year and is going to be a building block for the Clippers, no matter who else they acquire this summer. Considering the team's unwillingness to include him in a trade for the best player available, we'd imagine that the Clippers' biggest additions will come via free agency. SGA floated around late-round fantasy value as he learned the ropes and figures to be a popular upside pick next year.

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who led the way in the NBA All-Rookie Second Team with 40 first team votes and 138 points overall, was joined by Collin Sexton, Landry Shamet, Mitchell Robinson and Kevin Huerter.

    SGA showed plenty of promise, especially in the playoffs, in helping the Clippers take a few games from the Warriors along with the historic 31 point comeback on the road. Robinson, who received the second-fewest points of the selections, showed tremendous potential in limited playing time and had the look of becoming a force in the paint.

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander closed the books on a sublime rookie season with 22 points, five rebounds, six assists, two threes and a block in Friday's Game 6 loss to the Warriors.

    Gilgeous-Alexander became one of the Clippers' top scoring options in the postseason after providing more subtle, two-way output during the regular season. Whether that was by design or not, the Clippers have to be thrilled with how their rookie responded in his first taste of the postseason. SGA is already a high-caliber player and the ceiling still isn't in sight.

    Shai Gilegous-Alexander scored a career-high 25 points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in Sunday's loss to the Warriors.

    If you had never seen him play you would not be able to tell SGA is a rookie in his first playoff series. He's calm and composed no matter the situation and can play a variety of styles already. The Clippers have a budding star.

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander played a team high 34 minutes for the Clippers, scoring 18 points on 6-of-16 shooting, adding three 3s, five rebounds, three blocks and an assist on Saturday night against the Warriors.

    Gilgeous-Alexander held his own in his first career playoff game but will have his hands full yet again in Game 2. Defending Steph Curry is one of the most difficult things for a rookie point guard, but he has the trust of his coach and his teammates as evidenced by his time on the floor. This should also continue to help the rookie in his development going forward and into next year.

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a dud in his rookie season finale, managing just eight points (no 3s), three assists, two rebounds, two steals and one turnover in 24 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Jazz.

    Like many raw point guards, Gilgeous-Alexander had a difficult time adjusting to the pace of the league and as a result he spent much of the first two months bouncing in and out of the top-160 in 9-cat value, sometimes falling out of the top-200. After the initial culture shock wore off, SGA broke out by almost doubling his (still low) 3-point output, increasing his steals and efficiency. He closed the season with top-90/100 value in 9/8-cat value over the last two months and ended up with top-130/140 value for the season. The future appears bright for the young rookie and after a season or two of improvements- shooting from deep and better recognition of where and when he should be dishing the rock- he should be making a push for mid-round value.
