Notes 
 Jayson Tatum signed a signed a five-year contract extension worth up to $195 million with the Celtics this offseason. He had a breakout campaign in his third year in the league, averaging 23.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.9 blocks and 2.9 triples across 34.3 minutes over 66 games. Gordon Hayward signed with the Hornets, the former third overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft could have an expanded role. The 22-year-old made his first All-Star appearance last season and is expected to once again carry the Celtics' offense. Tatum is projected to be a mid-to-late first round pick in upcoming fantasy drafts, expect more of the same √©lite production in 2020-21.
Brad Camara - FantasyPros
We haven't seen Kevin Durant play in over a year and have yet to see how he'll fare with teammate Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn. It's very likely that Kevin Durant can return to form and average high-20's in the scoring department again, but the risk here should push him into the second round. In category-scoring leagues, he's a bit more valuable as his field goal and free throw percentage won't hurt you. We haven't seen him average over 6.8 rebounds per game since the 2016-2017 player so you're banking on him being a top scorer again when you draft him.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
  Durant is one of the most challenging players to project this season. We haven't seen the 13-year veteran in an NBA game since he ruptured his Achilles tendon in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals. When he's on the floor he's been a model of consistency as one of the best pure scorers of his era, averaging 27 points per game for his career. It remains to be seen how he'll look returning from the serious injury and leading the new-look Nets alongside Kyrie Irving.
