Notes 
 It's just good to see Klay healthy and playing. We can't expect the Klay of the past, but he'll do enough to remain relevant and will have blow-up games.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
KPJ quietly came on late last season and helps with points, threes, and assists. With Jabari and Green - as well as Eason - Porter will have to be efficient each night.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 An amazing comeback for Klay Thompson from a torn Achilles was complete with a critical role in Golden State's championship run. Thompson played in 32 regular-season games, but posted 20.4 PPG while shooting 38.5% from 3P range. Thompson is a superior FT shooter, hitting 90.2% for his attempts in 2021-2022. However, the issue remains he provides little else (3.9 RPG, 2.8 APG) outside of his shooting acumen.
Mike Randle - FTN
Kevin Porter Jr. had an overall strong year, despite some contentious moments with the coach staff. He maintained his 16 PPG average from the prior season, but played almost triple (61) the amount of games. Porter showed great improvement from deep, reaching 37.5% efficiency on 413 attempts. He crested a steal per game, while raising his RPG for the third consectutive year. On a Houston teamt that is ascending, Porter is a dynamic fantasy option with huge upside.
