2019 Fantasy Outlook
White took a big step forward in his second year with San Antonio, averaging 25.8 minutes across 67 contests, starting 55 of them. He averaged 9.9 points, 3.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds -- all career highs. He also contributed 1.7 combined blocks/steals and shot a respectable 47.9 field goal percentage and 33.8 three-point percentage. White showed off his all-around game as a sophomore, with the ability to play both ends of the court at a high level and contribute valuable numbers across multiple categories. He turned his scoring up in the playoffs, averaging 15.1 points in seven games against Denver, displaying his upside with a 36-point, five-rebound, five-assist explosion in Game 3. White will look to carry the momentum from a big season into 2019-20. The return of point guard Dejounte Murray to the backcourt could cut into White's overall production, but the latter is still a breakout candidate as the Spurs' starting two-guard. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

White led the University of Colorado with 18.1 points, 4.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game in his senior year, the 2016-17 season. He was named to both the All Pac-12 Conference and All Pac-12 Tournament First Team. He was the Pac-12's second-leading scorer during the conference season with 18.5 points per game. The guard was one of only two players in the Pac 12, joining Washington's Markelle Fulz, to rank in the top 10 in scoring, assists and blocked shots. White helped lead the Buffaloes to the 2017 NIT, where they lost to the University of Central Florida in the first round. White played his first three seasons of college basketball at Colorado-Colorado Springs before transferring to the University of Colorado. At UCCS, he garnered NCAA Division II All-American honors in his sophomore and junior seasons. The Parker, Colorado native was selected in the first round (29th overall) of the 2017 NBA Draft by the San Antonio Spurs.

Excels in place of Murray
GSan Antonio Spurs
March 11, 2020
White started at point guard and churned out 14 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine assists, seven rebounds, four blocks and two steals in 35 minutes Tuesday in the Spurs' 119-109 win over the Mavericks.
ANALYSIS
Entering the starting five in place of the injured Dejounte Murray (calf), White came through with a huge all-around stat line while handling a season-high minutes load. The Spurs are listing Murray as out indefinitely, so White looks like he should have a good opportunity to play at or around 30-plus minutes for at least a few more games. The 25-year-old has shown the ability to rack up defensive stats to go with efficient shooting when given extensive playing time in the past, so he'll likely at least have some temporary value in 12-team leagues until Murray returns.

Past Season Summaries
2017

2018

Heading into the 2018-19 campaign, White had only 17 games of NBA action to his name. When Dejounte Murray was lost for the season due to injury, White found himself with a larger role than expected.

The Colorado product chipped in 9.9 points per game. He also averaged 3.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds per contest. In arguably his finest performance of the season, White posted a career-high 26 points and handed out six assists in a win over Brooklyn on Jan. 31. When the playoffs came around, White did not shrink from the spotlight. He started all seven postseason games for San Antonio, averaging 27.2 minutes per contest. White also increased his scoring, putting up 15.1 points per game in the playoffs.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
White was selected by the Spurs with the 29th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. He was a standout performer at the University of Colorado - Colorado Springs in Division II for his first three collegiate seasons, before heading to Colorado for his senior campaign. In joining the Buffaloes, he proved he could play against better competition, averaging an impressive 18.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.2 steals across 32.8 minutes. His shooting percentages of 50.7 percent from the field and 39.6 percent from the three-point line indicate he can score from all over the floor, which is esssential to stick in today's NBA landscape. The 23-year-old guard picked up All-Conference First Team honors in the Pac-12, while also being named to the conference's All-Defensive Team, which comes as no surprise for a Gregg Popovich coached team that prides itself on playing defense. His versatility on both sides of the ball should give both Popovich and GM R.C. Buford another weapon to develop over the next few years, but it's hard to see White getting a ton of run during his rookie campaign. Tony Parker will miss the first three months of the season while recovering from a ruptured quadriceps, so White could see spot minutes as the third point guard behind Patty Mills and Dejounte Murray out of the gate.
