The Thunder acquired Gilgeous-Alexander on Saturday along with Danilo Gallinari, four future unprotected first-round picks, one protected future first-round pick and the right to swap future picks with the Clippers twice in exchange for Paul George, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. After a promising rookie campaign, Gilgeous-Alexander was a prime candidate to take another leap forward in 2019-20, but the move to Oklahoma City now threatens any possible ascension. The Kentucky product's outlook will likely hinge on whether the Thunder are able to find a trade partner for superstar Russell Westbrook, who is believed to be on the block now that George is out of town, per Brett Dawson of The Athletic. If Westbrook sticks around in Oklahoma City, Gilgeous-Alexander would largely remain limited to an off-ball role, which would put a cap on his overall usage. In that scenario, Alexander would at least provide a major upgrade at shooting guard for the Thunder, which has been a black hole of fantasy production for the past few years.
Gilgeous-Alexander delivered 22 points (8-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six assists, five rebounds and one block across 34 minutes during the Clippers' 129-110 loss to the Warriors in Game 6 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Friday. Gilgeous-Alexander checked in second only to Danilo Gallinari in scoring for the Clippers with a highly efficient shooting performance. The rookie scored in double digits in three of the six games during the series, and he shot between Friday's 57.1 percent and 66.7 percent in each of the final three contests. Gilgeous-Alexander turned in a productive rookie campaign overall, averaging 10.8 points (on 47.6 percent shooting), 3.3 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.2 steals while logging 73 starts. He'll look to take the next step during the 2019-20 season as Los Angeles tries to build on this season's solid showing.
Gilgeous-Alexander finished with 25 points (9-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 31 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 loss to the Warriors. Gilgeous-Alexander began Sunday's game red-hot, scoring 14 of the first 17 Clipper points. He slowed from that point but still ended with a career-high 25 points on 9-of-15 shooting. The Clippers are now just one loss away from elimination with Game 5 to be held in Oakland on Wednesday. Whatever the outcome, Gilgeos-Alexander has had a strong rookie season, progressing much faster than anyone would have expected.
Gilgeous-Alexander accumulated 18 points (6-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, three blocks, and one assist in 34 minutes during Saturday's 121-104 Game 1 loss to the Warriors. Gilgeous-Alexander produced a quality stat line despite his inefficient shooting performance. Moreover, he logged a team high minute total, so it's clear coach Doc Rivers trusts the rookie. Gilgeous-Alexander has his hands full dealing with Golden State's backcourt, but he's certainly not backing down.
Gilgeous-Alexander totaled 20 points (10-19 FG, 0-4 3Pt), eight rebounds, six assists, one block and one steal over 37 minutes in the Clippers' loss to the Lakers on Friday. Gilgeous-Alexander had a solid all-around stat line in Friday's loss, producing healthy totals across the board. He's been on an offensive hot streak recently, hitting 20 points for the fourth time in his last five games.
