Kevin Huerter Nba Stats & News

With the Hawks adding a ton of talent and depth during the 2020 offseason, Huerter's production took a slight step back. However, he was still plenty productive and crucial to Atlanta's gameplan. The third-year guard averaged 11.9 points, 3.5 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 30.8 minutes. He also made 2.0 threes per game at 36.3 percent. That resulted in Huerter ranking 122nd in fantasy on a per-game basis. Heading into 2021-22, Huerter's role shouldn't change significantly, as the Hawks practically made no moves in the offseason. There's potential for him to see fewer minutes if Cam Reddish takes a real step forward, but there's always a chance Huerter himself takes a step forward. De'Andre Hunter will also be healthy after missing much of last season, which impedes Huerter's path to easy playing time. Still, Huerter should be able to garner sixth-man minutes easily and provide some three-point shooting and secondary playmaking. His upside is relatively low, however, so he's more of a deep-league selection. Read Past Outlooks

Huerter made quality improvements during the 2019-20 season with the Hawks -- his sophomore campaign. In 31.4 minutes per game, the 6-foot-7 shooting guard averaged 12.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 2.3 threes and 1.4 combined steals-plus-blocks. He also had six 20-point games and two double-doubles. That resulted in Huerter ranking 105th on a per-game basis in eight-category fantasy leagues. Heading into 2020-21, the sharpshooter and secondary playmaker will look to keep building those skills for the revamped Hawks, who have playoff aspirations. However, his role is in jeopardy. The Hawks made splashes this offseason by adding both Bogdan Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari, the former being a direct threat to Huerter's usage. It's possible Galliari comes off the bench and Huerter still starts, but the path to 30-plus minutes won't be free this time around.
