Domantas Sabonis 2018-2019 Season Outlook


Recommended Posts

The young big and son of a hoops legend surprised everyone in his first year with the Pacers. A very skilled player who showed flashes of his potential as a starter when Myles Turner was injured, where do you predict he will rank this season? Will the Pacers play him next to Turner? Where would you draft him? Discuss!

Just to blow your mind.  Using NBA.com's advanced statistics, he ranks #2 in the league for Player Impact Estimate for players averaging > 15 minutes per game..   Player Impact Estimate

it’s a travesty he’s not starting 

As a Turner owner, I hate to say it but Sabonis is so good for this team.  Every time he's on the floor, good things just seem to happen.  Not only does he have a postgame and a midrange shot, he's a

Outside 120... 

EDIT: Maybe not even there... I'd take Isaac, Bell, Robinson (NY), W. Carter Jr. Nance Jr. Motrezi Harrell, Jackson Jr. Kelly Olynyk, Taj Gibson, Favors, Ibaka, Harry Giles, over him... 

Sooo yeah... not high on him AT ALL...

If only he can add some stocks.

 

A block and 2 steals last night. Hopefully that can carry over into the regular season, especially if he sees a minutes uptick.

Exactly, and he outplayed him all of last season.

He is a much smarter and better offensive player than Turner but Turner will still play more than him because of his defense/rim protection. If only Turner had sabonis offensive awareness he would actually be worth the 3rd round picks guys still use on him.

wow he is really being underrated 

 

i wouldn’t be surprised to see him put up top 100 value .. and yahoo has him ranked at 180 something - sleeper 

 

He’s nothing special in fantasy, 12/7 with little to no stocks as a big man is very meh.

those are his numbers from last year

 

i don’t see why he can’t build on that and go 16/9 on high percentages this season

Im curious what makes you think hes going to improve much? Pacers didnt lose any frontcourt depth, Turner will likely remain healthy more than he did last year and they added another high usage guy in Tyreke so its not like his situation got much better

If you're punting blocks, he's very serviceable. It would be nice if he got steals, but it's not horrible that he doesn't. I feel like people forget you still need centers when you're punting big man stats.

just watching him play....im not a box score watcher, i watch actual games, and sabonis is too good to be riding the pine on a team like the pacers. i'll be surprised if he doesnt improve on last season.

That was also his first year, on a new team...and that 12/7 was a significant leap from his production as a rookie. There is a difference between 12/7 from someone like Gibson who has already shown us his ceiling, and 12/7 from a 2nd-year player still finding his identity
