2019 Fantasy Outlook
With Edwards, is Boston looking at Isaiah Thomas 2.0? The diminutive Purdue rookie has a knack for creating his own shot, which was on full display during Summer League, where Edwards averaged 19.4 points from only 23 minutes per game. Clearly, Danny Ainge saw something he liked, quickly signing the second-round pick Edwards to a four-year agreement. Edwards averaged 24.3 points per game during his last season at Purdue while shooting 35 percent from behind the arc. But let's all take a deep breath. Edwards is squarely behind star Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart on the Celtics' point guard depth chart, though Smart will also see time as a wing. The 21-year-old's best-case scenario for 2019-20 is to fill the role Terry Rozier played last year, which would mean a generous 22 minutes per game. That's probably a stretch, especially if fellow rookie Romeo Langford's thumb heals as expected before Oct. 1. Boston views Edwards and Langford as long-term scoring threats with upside. How much of that upside we get to view this season is debatable. Read Past Outlooks
