Notes 
 Ball took a leap forward as a shooter last season, nailing a career-best 3.1 triples per game to go with his well-rounded averages. Ball is an effective rebounder and facilitator capable of posting triple-doubles any time he takes the floor. As long as he can maintain his elite long-range shooting with Chicago, he's got a chance for top-50 numbers.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Hield is going to face plenty of competition for minutes in Sacramento's crowded backcourt, but he's one of the league's preeminent three-point shooters who's able to contribute just enough in other categories to remain in the top-100.
