2021 Fantasy Outlook
The dynamic guard helped lead Gonzaga to the National Championship Game behind averages of 14.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.9 steals to go with a 50-34-75 shooting line. The three-point and free-throw percentages are somewhat concerning, but Suggs has a smooth-looking jumpshot that should improve with time. Other than Cade Cunningham, Suggs projects as the most well-rounded fantasy player in the class - especially if his high steal rate translates to the next level. Suggs joins a Magic roster in dire need of a player with true star potential. Cole Anthony had an encouraging rookie year and Markelle Fultz was looking better before tearing his ACL, but Suggs is immediately the top asset for a team loaded with cast-offs and theoretical three-and-D wings. It will be interesting to see how Orlando handles the Suggs-Anthony pairing, but Suggs' ability to play both guard spots is a significant mark in his favor. With the Magic mired into a multi-year rebuild and destined for the lottery again in 2022, Suggs is in as good of a stat-producing position as any rookie in the class. In three Summer League appearances, Suggs fared well, putting up 15.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.0 block in just 21.8 minutes per game. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

As a freshman, Suggs averaged 14.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists for a deep and talented Gonzaga team that didn't taste defeat until the National Championship game. While he wasn't as ball-dominant as some of the other one-and-done freshman in the class, Suggs' athleticism stood out whenever he took the court, especially on the defensive end. He led the West Coast Conference in defensive rating and defensive win shares, plus checked in at No. 11 in the country in total steals. Suggs flirted with the elusive triple-double on multiple occasions, including an 18-point/10-rebound/6-assist effort against USC in the Elite Eight. His shining moment came in the Final Four against UCLA, however, as Suggs hit a game-winning three from just inside halfcourt to propel Gonzaga to the title game, where the Zags ultimately fell to Baylor.

August 13, 2021
Suggs suffered a sprained thumb during Thursday's Summer League game against the Celtics and will sit out the remainder of summer play, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Suggs was in the midst of a productive Summer League, and he'll finish the exhibitions with averages of 15.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.7 combined steals-plus-blocks in 21.8 minutes. A timetable for his return has not been immediately established, but he could be ready in time for training camp.
