2019 Fantasy Outlook
After appearing in all 82 games for what could be considered a breakout sophomore season, the injury bug hit Prince last year, and the former Baylor standout appeared in just 55 games for the Hawks, making 47 starts on the wing. Still, despite the injuries, Prince still managed to average 13.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. Most impressive was his sustainable success from behind the arc, as Prince shot a career-best 39.0 percent from three on 5.7 attempts per game. While he was originally viewed as a key member of Atlanta's young core, he was shipped to Brooklyn this offseason as part of the Allen Crabbe salary dump. Now, his role is a lot less stable, as he will join a Nets club that boasts plenty of wing and frontcourt depth even in the absence of Kevin Durant this season. Prince will be competing with the likes of Caris LeVert, Garrett Temple, Wilson Chandler and Rodions Kurucs for time on the floor this season, but given how the 25-year-old has emerged as a three-point marksman over the last two seasons, it would be surprising if the Nets didn't often utilize him as a floor spacer in the frontcourt.

Superb showing versus former team

December 4, 2019
Prince produced 23 points (9-15 FG, 5-7 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 130-118 win over the Hawks.
ANALYSIS
Prince scored at least 20 points for the fourth time this season while sinking at least five treys for the third time. He has been a fairly consistent, albeit inefficient, source of scoring, and Prince has also done a solid job from beyond the arc and on the boards.

2016
After a lackluster rookie campaign, Prince made a noticeable leap in his second year, starting all 82 regular season games and hitting the coveted 30-minute threshold on a per game basis. The 24-year-old finished second on the team in scoring behind Dennis Schroder at 14.1 points, which included 2.1 three-pointers at an improved 38.5 percent clip from deep. He also added 4.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.0 steal. Clearly one of the Hawks' building blocks of the future, Prince's rapid development has him primed for another productive year in 2018-19. The Hawks dealt Dennis Schroder to the Thunder in the offseason, so Prince will be the top returning scorer from a season ago. Fellow frontcourt player John Collins, who also has shown a ton of upside, is headed into his first full year as a starter, but that shouldn't cut into Prince's numbers much, if at all. In addition, the selection of Trae Young with the fifth overall pick in the draft replaces Schroder with an unproven talent. As a result, Prince and Collins will likely be relied upon even more offensively, giving both the opportunity to build on their already solid numbers. Prince's strong sophomore season and likely uptick in usage ahead of the upcoming campaign should establish him as a coveted mid-round pick in Fantasy drafts.
Prince, the 12th overall selection of the 2016 NBA Draft, got off to a slow start in his rookie campaign, but saw his role grow throughout the year and averaged a respectable 8.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steal across 25.6 minutes from the start of March through the end of April. He shot 44.8 percent from the field, but his three-point shot could use some improvement, though it wasn't horrible at 33.3 percent. Prince's value should continue to rise heading into the 2017-18 season, as the Hawks no longer have Paul Millsap, Dwight Howard, Tim Hardaway Jr. or Thabo Sefolosha. It's a clear rebuild in Atlanta, so at just 22 years old, Prince is one of the younger players on the roster who has the upside to earn him a ton of minutes. Prince is currently projected to start at small forward, though fellow second-year player DeAndre' Bembry has shown some promise as well. That said, Prince's numbers should increase across the board and after last season's coming out party in the playoffs where he averaged 11.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 31.1 minutes, he'll have high expectations in what should be his first full season as a starter.
One of two first-round picks made by the Hawks in June to address their depth on the wing, Prince, the No. 12 overall selection, provides a good complement to DeAndre' Bembry, the 21st overall pick. Unlike Bembry, who profiles as more of an athlete who can run the floor, Prince's game is a bit more polished all around. The 6-foot-8 Prince uses a 6-foot-11.5 wingspan to harass perimeter players and battle power forwards on defense, and showed an ability during his time at Baylor to knock down open three-point shots and convert on spot-up chances. The Hawks are optimistic Prince can develop into a three-and-D player who could eventually replace the aging Kyle Korver in the starting lineup, but during his rookie season, he'll likely be asked to play a more limited role off the bench. In addition to Korver, Prince will likely find himself behind Kent Bazemore and Thabo Sefolosha on the depth chart at the two wing spots to open the campaign.
