5 Best Potential Picks After NBA 2021-2022 Preseason

The NBA preseason is a time for players to show their skills and make a name for themselves. If you are drafting, pay close attention to these guys for this year's draft. If the draft is over, keep an eye out for any of these five guys during the season to make some waiver moves.

  1. Jordan Poole

  2. Tyler Herro

  3. Mo Bamba

  4. OG Anunoby

  5. Trey Murphy

Jordan Poole

The preseason is over, but Poole has proven himself to be worthy of a roster spot in fantasy basketball. With Klay Thompson out for the foreseeable future, Poole is expected to start.

Poole has been a breakout player in the preseason. He's averaging 23.3 points and shooting 51.6% from the field and 40% from 3. He's currently second in scoring in the preseason and he's doing so while playing great defense.

Thompson's return will likely limit Clark's playing time, but if he continues to play at this level, he should still have a prominent role on the Warriors' bench.

Tyler Herro

Herro didn’t have the best season last year. But, now he will be starting in place of both Kendrick Nunn and Goran Dragić, who left in the offseason.

Herro has performed really well in the preseason so far. He is averaging 25 points in his game time, and this translates to about 30+ minutes of play until Victor Oladipo returns. His play has been strong enough to warrant a late draft pick.

Mo Bamba

Bamba was drafted 6th overall in the 2018 NBA draft. Unfortunately, he has not had much of an opportunity to make a name for himself since his head coach was fired. However, with the hiring of new head coach Jamahl Mosley, Bamba's life will change.

If you're drafting for your fantasy team, Bamba has been an 11.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.8 blocks-player during the preseason. His blocks average should sound all the bells and whistles in your head. If Bamba gets enough time to be a consistent rebounder and shot blocker, he will be worth a draft pick. Especially if his shooting percentage usually hovers around 50%.

OG Anunoby

In last season's playoffs, the Raptors put the ball in Anunoby's hands. And now, in this preseason, they are doing it again and he is starting to look like their number one option. Without Pascal Siakam, he is looking to be a major player on the court.

You may not know how good Anunoby is yet, but if you keep your eye on him, you'll see. He's had his rank rise quite a bit over the last week.

Trey Murphy

Murphy is the newest addition to the Pelicans, but he may not stay a sleeper for long. In preseason play, he has averaged a respectable 17.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.3 three-pointers made and 1.8 assists per game.

With his defense skills, Murphy should see enough court time to produce strong fantasy numbers. He's another rookie worth drafting and stash who can be selected later in the game.
