Notes 
 Playoff P impressed in the postseason, leading the Clippers past the top-seeded Jazz without Kawhi Leonard. With Leonard expected to be out through at least the All-Star Break, expect PG13 to take on a high usage rate and contribute significantly across most categories. He's a borderline top-5 player who's going in the early-to-mid second round, making him quite a value. If you're drafting at the 1-2 turn, you're actually at an advantageous spot to be able to snag George and another elite player in one fell swoop.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Fresh off signing a max extension, Butler will look to continue his strong play in Miami this season. He averaged 21/7/7 last season with 2.1 steals and just 2.1 turnovers. In two seasons with the Heat, he's averaged 6.8 boards and 6.5 dimes. While the assist numbers will likely take a hit with Kyle Lowry on the roster, Butler shouldn't fall off enough in that category to drop outside the second round of drafts. He's not a three-point shooter, but he'll provide strong contributions nearly everywhere else, including elite steal totals. Current ADP suggests Butler is being undervalued, and if you can land him around pick 20 or later, you've got yourself real value.
