2019 Fantasy Outlook
After sitting out the entire 2017-18 season, Giles finally received his first taste of NBA action last year. He played in 58 games off the bench, averaging 7.0 points and 3.8 rebounds across 14.0 minutes per night. When he did receive added playing time, he showed promise by averaging 13.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 blocks across eight games in which he logged at least 20 minutes. The departure of Willie Cauley-Stein could have freed up added playing time, but the Kings created a bit of a logjam up front by adding Dewayne Dedmon and Richaun Holmes. Marvin Bagley could also see some time at center when they go small. While Giles has the potential to valuable fantasy asset, it's hard to see a path for him consistently seeing minutes in the mid-20s with all of the options that the Kings have in the frontcourt.

His father played both collegiate football and basketball at Winston-Salem State University. Giles attended two different high schools.

As a junior (2014-15), Giles earned First Team All-USA honors by USA Today. That summer, Giles won a gold medal as a member of Team USA in the 2015 FIBA Under-19 World Cup in Greece. Before his senior year, Giles transferred to Oak Hill Academy in Virginia but tore the ACL in his right knee during his first scrimmage. Giles then enrolled at Forest Trail Academy to take online courses while rehabbing his knee. After one year at Duke, Giles declared for the 2017 NBA Draft. Giles enjoys getting pedicures and treated 10 dads from the local nonprofit, Center for Fathers and Families, for a day at a spa as part of the Season of Doing Good.

2018

After sitting out the 2017-18 season to improve the strength in his knees, essentially taking a redshirt season, Giles made his NBA debut in the 2018-19 season. The Kings gradually increased his workload as the year went on, as he averaged 9.7 and 9.4 minutes per game in November and December, respectively, before seeing his playing time jump to 16.6 minutes per game in January, 15.3 in February, and 18.6 in March. The former 20th-overall pick was then shut down in April as a precaution. Overall, the 20-year-old averaged 7.0 points and 3.8 rebounds over 14.1 minutes per game. Giles recorded his first double-digit scoring effort on Nov. 12 against the Spurs. Later in the month he had back-to-back 10-point nights against Golden State on Nov. 24 and Utah on Nov. 25. He scored a season-high 20 points against Atlanta on Jan. 30 while also adding seven rebounds and one assist. Giles recorded a season-high nine rebounds in 18 minutes in a 119-116 win against Oklahoma City on Feb. 23. He scored in double-digits on three consecutive games twice, from Feb. 4-8 in games against the Spurs, Rockets and Heat, and again from Feb. 27-March 4 against the Bucks, Clippers and Knicks. His totals were especially impressive on a per-36 minute basis, where he averaged 17.9 points, 9.7 rebounds and 4.8 assists.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
While recovering from knee surgery, Giles, the 20th pick in the 2017 Draft, didn't see the court last season. However, he was healthy enough to play in summer league this year, and he performed well. In seven appearances, he averaged 10.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and over two combined blocks and steals in 24.6 minutes. In what will be his rookie year, Giles is expected to play a backup role in the frontcourt behind the likes of Willie Cauley-Stein and No. 2 overall pick Marvin Bagley. However, the Kings have other solid frontcourt options off the pine as well, so there’s no guarantee that Giles will crack 20 minutes on a nightly basis.
Giles had his first start in college come in December of 2016 after missing the first chunk of the season due to arthroscopic left knee surgery. He struggled to make a significant impact as a freshman, posting just 3.9 points and 3.8 rebounds across 11.5 minutes per game, though shot 57.7 percent from the field. Despite three total knee surgeries and a subpar 300-minute college career, Giles is still an impressive athlete – 6-foot-11, 240 pounds with a 7-foot-3 wingspan and 32.5-inch vertical -- with enough upside for the Kings to have drafted him with the 20th overall pick in the 2017 Draft. His size should allow for him to play both power forward and center at the NBA level. That said, all the time he’s missed due to knee surgeries has stunted his development as an offensive player, resulting in him seeing most of his points in college coming from running in transition, diving towards the rim off pick-and-rolls, plus working the offensive glass. Prior to his injuries though, he established a nice baseline of quick, efficient post moves and even a solid mid-range jumper. Next season for Giles will likely be about utilizing his best skills -- rebounding and shot-blocking – in game, while working on his offensive skill and overall basketball IQ in training camp, practice, garbage time, etc. With that in mind, Giles can likely be avoided in seemingly every Fantasy format, as he doesn’t necessarily project to see even significant rotational minutes.
