Taurean Prince 2019-2020 Outlook


Recommended Posts

am i crazy to believe dude is primed for a breakout season?

 

with kd injured, i think people are sleeping on his potential to fill his shoes, if only for a year.

 

going undrafted in most leagues, but i won’t be surprised to see him finish top 100 tbh.

You must be having some major regrets now LOL

If you're looking for a similar player stat wise who isn't as much of a headache with the FG%, Dorian Finney Smith makes a lot of sense. He has SF / PF elig and has really upticked his 3 point volume

it’s my style

a lot of bodies in brooklyn back court but he should have a better season that last year. Pre season is going pretty well for him too

 

Not that many suited to play PF though, main guys are basically Prince and Kurucs.

 

I've been quietly on this guy for a while now, compared to the other 3pt guys he's getting drafted way too low. Finally Josh Lloyd of BBM and Mike Gallagher of RW recently talked about him as well, so I'm expecting his stock to go up. 

 

For a last round pick I'm extremely happy with what he can give me in points, but mainly I want those high high 3pters. Full disclosure he has pretty high TOs for his role tho.

His teammates and coaches have been raving about him calling him an x-factor for the team. 

1.8-2 3s/12-14points/4 boards/2.5 assists/1.2 steals


he’ll have more threes and 1 steal. He’ll up his FG, that’ll make a big rank difference. He drilled 13 threes in just his first three games with them, the system is set up for guys like he and joe Harris to thrive, they revived Carroll’s career. I have him easily pegged at 2.4 Threes.

Yea he's been ridiculously efficient in the preseason, my only worry is Atkinson's rotations, no one except for prob kyrie and levert will get more than 30 min. Also like mentioned before his TOs are a lil high for his position.

Top 100 and I’ve drafted him.  But what constitutes a breakout?  Imo there are two many wings who can score in the teens, hit a couple threes, get a few boards and steals, gets a steal for him to differentiate himself.  Eg. I prefer Ingles for his playoff schedule and durability (also assists).  But I prefer prince over Fournier, green, etc

20 points per game this year. 

 

That's a pipe dream. It's far better to be modest with projections than over the top. Wild over the top projections is how you end up reaching for guys and they fail terribly (and so does your team).

Realistically given his history, the amount of shots he'll get within the offense, a projectable line is:

44% FG, 82% FT, 14.5 ppg, 4.2 boards, 2.5 assists, 1 steal, .4 blocks, and about 2.4 3's per (could be a bit less a bit more, I predict more). He's just a perfectly balanced bench player to round out a roster with. All mostly inline with his career numbers, but the 3's will uptick on this team (he's at near 40% on the Hawks at just under 6 attempts, but I see him going over the 40% mark with the Nets and even shooting more volume).

I've never understood the hype around Prince and his potential. But albeit this will probably be his last chance to show he is a starting caliber player. Agree he might be a good end of bench guy this year.

Well yea but the difference is the draft position between Ingles and Prince. Ingles is ranked like 80-85 in predraft while Prince is like 130-150

That's true.  But in most of my drafts Ingles is slept on and can be obtained for $4-5 at auction while typically if you nominate Prince, someone will bid 2, and it takes 3 to get him.  The difference in cost is basically arbitrary.  To my point, if they're going to cost similar amounts I prefer Ingles.  Or Ross, for that matter.  Just two examples.  So while I think Prince will be rosterable, I don't see him differentiating himself from other wings.
