Player Outlook

Klay Thompson continued his steady improvement in 2014-15, as he increased his scoring average for the fourth season in a row to start his career. Things looked even more promising before the All-Star break, as he averaged 22.1 points per game, thanks to an big increase in his rate of free-throws drawn. That slowed down a bit in the second half of the season, though he still managed to average 20.9 points per game, hardly a number to scoff at. Like everyone in the Warriors' starting lineup, his per-minute production was even more impressive, but the team's dominance left him on the bench often late in games. If he sees more than the 31.9 minutes he averaged a year ago, Thompson's upside is even higher, but it's hard to argue with the results he managed anyways, as he finished seventh in Rotisserie scoring and 35th in Fantasy points per game in leagues last season. He is a borderline first-round pick in category-based leagues, and shouldn't last much beyond the third round in standard scoring either.
