Notes 
 Fresh off signing a max extension, Butler will look to continue his strong play in Miami this season. He averaged 21/7/7 last season with 2.1 steals and just 2.1 turnovers. In two seasons with the Heat, he's averaged 6.8 boards and 6.5 dimes. While the assist numbers will likely take a hit with Kyle Lowry on the roster, Butler shouldn't fall off enough in that category to drop outside the second round of drafts. He's not a three-point shooter, but he'll provide strong contributions nearly everywhere else, including elite steal totals. Current ADP suggests Butler is being undervalued, and if you can land him around pick 20 or later, you've got yourself real value.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Murray enjoyed the best statistical season of his career in 2020-21, averaging 15/7/5 while recording five triple-doubles. He's continued to grow in each of the three seasons since his rookie year, and if that trend continues, he could be ready to take off for fantasy managers.
