Saric -- along with the No. 11 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft -- was traded to the Suns in exchange for the No. 6 pick in the draft, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Saric will join a Suns team that traded away TJ Warren earlier in the day Thursday in what amounted to a salary dump. For now, Saric looks like a potential starter at power forward for Phoenix, though that could change as the draft and free agency unfold. Last year, Saric averaged 10.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 25 minutes a game while appearing in 81 contests for the Timberwolves and 76ers.
Saric ended with 11 points (4-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, and three assists in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 99-95 loss to the Nuggets. Saric brought to an end his somber season, scoring just 11 points in the Timberwolves loss to Denver. Saric has been disappointing since joining the Timberwolves and given the fact a number of players have been sidelined for significant periods of time, his poor production is even more concerning. Heading into next season, he is certainly not going to be a player to target in standard formats, depending of course on the offseason moves the Timberwolves may or may not make.
Saric scored 23 points (9-15 FG, 5-9 3Pt) and collected three rebounds along with an assist and a block over 32 minutes Sunday against Oklahoma City. Saric turned in a decent final line and scored 15 of his 23 points from beyond the arc in a 132-126 loss. The 24-year-old is averaging just over 10 points over 78 matchups this season, so Sunday's production was a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners. Even so, he likely shouldn't be trusted to sustain this high level of play through the final two games of the regular season.
Saric supplied 19 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, and five assists in 29 minutes during Friday's 111-109 win over the Heat. Saric was efficient offensively while providing a fairly well-rounded stat line. His inconsistent production makes it difficult to trust him outside of deeper leagues. Still, Saric is clearly capable of filling up the box score and will likely continue to earn plenty of minutes across the final three games of 2018-19.
Saric compiled 14 points (5-14 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 110-108 victory over Dallas. Saric played 30 minutes for the first time since late February, coming away with 14 points on 5-of-14 shooting. With Taj Gibson (calf) seeming as though he could be done for the season, Saric should continue to see decent minutes, although, he is yet to capitalize. In fact, he has scored in excess of 15 points just once in his last 22 games. He offers very little on the defensive end and is far from consistent when it comes to field-goal efficiency.
