Notes 
 Well, he's back in Phoenix. That's not exactly great, but he wasn't in demand, either. He's capped for now but a great long-term outlook still. Good pick for boards.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
He's essentially a one-category stud who does enough in the other areas to warrant a top-50 pick. This is likely the year he gets dealt.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Still only 24-years-old, Deandre Ayton is a solid fantasy pick at the shallow center position. Almost matched his career averages in 2021 with 16.3 points, 10.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.8 blocks/steals. Goes quiet for long periods of time during the game, limiting his ceiling performance, but there are few more consistent options.
Mike Randle - FTN
The 6-foot-11, 250 lb center is one of the best shot blockers the NBA, averaging over 3.0 blocks during the past two seasons. The most concerning trend for Myles Turners is his games played per season has dropped in four consectutive years. Turner played only 42 games in 2021-2022, after a stress reaction from a January 14th injury ended his season. He is a limited scorer, averaging about 12 PPG in each of the past three seasons, and is a poor rebounder (6.7 RPG career) for a player of his size. Based on his non-scoring production, Turner needs to average about 15 PPG to return decent fantasy value.
