Notes 
 NAW shined last season, making the most of an expanded role in his second year in the league. In 13 starts, he averaged 19/5/3 with 3.1 triples and 1.1 steals. With Lonzo Ball and Eric Bledsoe shipped off to new locales, NAW is expected to be the Pels' starting SG in 21-22, opening the door for a possible breakout.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
After a surprisingly efficient season, McConnell should be a useful fantasy option in 21-22 thanks to his quality shooting, steals, and assists off the Pacers' bench. The Pacers may be shorthanded to start the season, which bodes well for McConnell's usage and outlook.
