Tatum managed 18 points (6-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, three steals and two assists during Monday's preseason win over Orlando.

Although a little rusty shooting the ball, Tatum ultimately finished with a superb overall performance, as the forward was one rebound shy of a double-double. So far, the former Duke Blue Devil has improved in each of his four seasons with Boston. Tatum posted career highs with 26.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists per contest across 64 games played last year. Heading into his age-23 season, Tatum should only continue to make strides as a scorer, playmaker and defender. In most season-long leagues, he makes for an excellent, high-floor selection in the latter half of the first round or early second round.
