2019 Fantasy Outlook
Mudiay recorded career-high averages in points (14.8) and threes (1.2) while cashing in career-best percentages from the field (44.6) and beyond the arc (32.9) with the Knicks in 2018-19. However, having signed with the Jazz this offseason, Mudiay will face an uphill climb for minutes in a stacked backcourt rotation led by Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell. In 83 career contests coming off the bench, Mudiay has posted 8.8 points (40.7 FG%, 34.9 3P%, 77.1 FT%), 2.9 assists, 2.6 rebounds, 0.8 threes, 0.6 steals and 0.2 blocks in 18.9 minutes per game. Given that he'll likely have to compete with Dante Exum for the primary backup point guard role, Mudiay may find it difficult to match those aforementioned averages as a reserve this season. As a result, he can likely be avoided in the vast majority of fantasy leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Emmanuel Mudiay was born in Kinshasa, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in 1996. Mudiay's mother Therese moved the family to Arlington, Texas, when he was five years old. Mudiay has two older brothers, Stephane and Jean-Michel, who both played collegiate basketball at Texas Wesleyan University and Southern Methodist University, respectively. Mudiay learned and grew his basketball profile in Texas, where he spent the first two years of his high school career at Arlington Grace Prep before spending the next two at Prime Prep in Dallas. Mudiay committed to play collegiate basketball at Southern Methodist University in Dallas before changing his mind and turning pro in China. He signed a one-year contract with the Guangdong Southern Tigers, for whom he averaged 18 points, 6.3 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game, adjusting to a physical and strength-based league. Check him out on Twitter and Instagram (@emmanuelmudiay).

College/International Summary

Mudiay elected to forgo a college career at SMU and decided to play in the Chinese Basketball Association for the 2014-15 season. The Kinshasa, Congo native signed with Guangdong Dongguan in the CBA and was second on the team in both assists (5.9) and steals (1.6) per game. Mudiay was also fourth on the team in rebounds per game (6.2). In an injury-shortened season, he only played 12 games but was fifth on the team in total assists with 71. Through those 12 games (10 regular season and two postseason), Mudiay averaged 18.0 points, which was enough to confirm the upside NBA scouts believed he had. Mudiay was selected in the first round (seventh overall) in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Past Season Summaries
2018

In his first full season with the Knicks, Mudiay appeared in 59 games, starting 42. He saw 27.2 minutes per contest, averaging 14.8 points (career high), 3.9 assists and 3.3 rebounds. Shooting 44.6 percent from the field, 32.9 percent from three and 77.4 percent from the charity stripe, the 22-year-old posted the best true-shooting percentage (53.1) of his career. He saw minutes in the 30s on 24 occasions. In those contests, he posted 19.5 points, 5.3 assists and 4.5 rebounds, plus a total of 16 steals and eight blocks. On Dec. 14, in a two-point win over the Hornets on the road, Mudiay had his best performance of the season. He contributed 34 points (14-21 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight assists, three rebounds and two steals across 41 minutes. It was one of his three 30-point performances of the season and one of his 16 games with at least five assists. Mudiay had one double-double on the season. Thriving at Madison Square Garden, Mudiay posting a true shooting percentage of 56.3 at home, plus his offensive rating was six points higher per 100 possessions than on the road. The team thrived when he was on the court with Damyean Dotson, Mario Hezonja, Kevin Knox and Mitchell Robinson, as that group was plus-25.5 points per 100 possessions in a 24-minute sample. The Knicks finished the season 17-65.

2017

Mudiay started the 2017-2018 season with the Denver Nuggets. He played in 42 games for the team before being traded to the New York Knicks on Feb. 8. With his new team, Mudiay played in 22 games and made 14 starts. His minutes per game rate increased from 17.9 to 22.4 following the trade. For the season as a whole, he averaged 8.6 points and 3.2 assists per game. In his first game with the Knicks, he handed out a season-high 10 assists against the Indiana Pacers. Mudiay also chipped in 14 points for the double-double. He came off the bench to score a season-high 22 points against the Philadelphia 76ers on March 28. While a member of the Nuggets, Mudiay tied a career-high with four three-point field goals in a 102-94 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Nov. 9. He finished the season with a .388 field percentage, which set a new career high.

2016

Mudiay continued to be a valuable offensive presence for the emerging Nuggets in his second NBA season. That year, he played in 55 games, starting 41 of them, and averaged 11 points and 3.9 assists. Mudiay jumped out of the gate in full force, scoring 21 points while grabbing seven rebounds and adding four assists against Portland in just his second game of the season. A week later on Nov. 6, Mudiay scored 30 points and pulled in eight rebounds in a win over Boston. On Nov. 18 against Toronto, Mudiay scored 25 points and dished out nine assists. On Jan. 16, he recorded a career-high 13 assists in a win over Orlando.

2015

Emmanuel Mudiay flashed offensive potential in his first season in The Association, learning the NBA game and playing a massive role for the Denver Nuggets. He made his debut on Opening Night, Oct. 28, and scored 17 points while dishing out nine assists as the Nuggets beat the Houston Rockets by 20. Just days later on Nov. 3, Mudiay recorded his first career double-double, scoring 12 points and adding 10 assists in an 11-point win over the Los Angeles Lakers. On Nov. 20 against Phoenix, the point guard scored a then career-high 26 points while adding five assists and three steals. On March 14 against Miami, Mudiay pitched in with perhaps his best offensive performance of the season. He scored 23 points and added 10 assists, his second career double-double. He did even better on March 23 against Philadelphia, scoring 27 points and grabbing 11 rebounds, a career high. He scored a season-best 30 points during a Mar. 10 win over the Suns. Mudiay finished the season averaging 12.8 points, 5.5 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 30.4 minutes per game across 68 games (66 starts).

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
2016
2015
Mudiay split the 2017-18 campaign between the Nuggets and Knicks, being dealt to New York at the trade deadline following a disappointing few years in Denver. He eventually took the court for 22 games with his new organization, averaging 8.8 points, 3.9 assists and 2.6 rebounds across 22.4 minutes. What sort of role he'll have in his first full season with the Knicks is still unclear at this point in time. The organization hasn't committed to a starting point guard quite yet, which means Mudiay will have a chance to battle Frank Ntilikina and Trey Burke for the top spot. That said, considering Ntilikina's draft positioning (8th overall in 2017), he seems like the favorite to ultimately get the spot and Mudiay could fall to third on the depth chart if Burke also continues his strong play from late last season. It will be a situation to monitor through camp, but at this point, Mudiay doesn't seem likely to be a contributor in most Fantasy leagues.
Mudiay appeared to be one of the steals of the 2015 NBA Draft with his incredible rookie season, but he fell victim to a sophomore slump last year. In fact, Mudiay saw a decrease in his points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. The only positive was that he saw a slight increase in his efficiency, as he shot a higher percentage from both the field and from the free-throw line. Adding to the decreasing value of Mudiay is the emergence of Jamal Murray, as he looks to have surpassed Mudiay on the pecking order with his impressive rookie campaign. That likely puts Mudiay in a battle for the backup role with Jameer Nelson, though he could get a final shot to stake his claim for the top spot in training camp. Mudiay reportedly put in some work with the coaches during the offseason, but the fact that Murray has continually improved while Mudiay has regressed, likely means Mudiay is going to be stuck on the bench, thus limiting his impact in Fantasy leagues.
Mudiay, the seventh overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, endured an up-and-down rookie campaign, finishing with averages of 12.8 points, 5.5 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 68 games. As the starting point guard on opening night, Mudiay got off to a slow start, averaging 10.7 points per game on just 31 percent shooting through the first 23 contests of the season before suffering a severe ankle sprain that would cost him 14 games. Upon his return, Mudiay's shooting woes continued, though he would hit his stride down the stretch, posting a 47.7 true shooting percentage after the All-Star break, compared to a ghastly 40.7 mark before. The jump was due in large part to Mudiay's improvement as a three-point shooter. After knocking down just 27.2 percent of his looks from deep before the break, Mudiay connected on 36.4 percent of his attempts in the season's second half, including a 38.9 percent mark during a strong month of March. The Nuggets will be counting on significant improvement from Mudiay this season, as they enter 2016-17 as one of the deeper teams in the Western Conference and hold playoff aspirations. Mudiay is firmly entrenched as the starting point guard, and while the team added combo guard Jamal Murray in the draft, he won't pose a major threat to Mudiay's workload as a rookie. If Mudiay can stay healthy for 70-plus games, he has the talent and upside to warrant a mid-round draft position in fantasy drafts. However, taking him any earlier than that will require a belief that he can significantly improve his erratic shooting percentages and trim his turnovers.
The 19-year-old Mudiay is one of the most intriguing rookies this season, and he'll immediately step into a major role given the offseason departure of Ty Lawson. One of the nation's top high school players in the class of 2014, Mudiay followed in the footsteps of Brandon Jennings and took his talents to China to play for the Guangdong Southern Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association. Mudiay missed the majority of his only season overseas due to an ankle injury, and it remains to be seen if he can stay healthy for a full, 82-game schedule. In limited minutes for Guangdong, Mudiay averaged 18.0 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 5.9 assists across 12 contests, shooting 48 percent from the field and 34 percent from three-point range. While those percentages are encouraging, he shot only 57 percent from the free-throw line, a number that will have to improve as he transitions to the NBA. At 6-5 with elite athleticism for his position, Mudiay figures to do most of his damage as a slasher in the mold of Orlando's Victor Oladipo. He's a strong finisher with both hands and should also produce solid assist and rebounding numbers, particularly considering the large minutes load he'll likely see as he's in line to start and play big minutes.
