How High Can LaVine Fly?

Updated On: September 19, 2019, 11:26 am ET

It legitimately seems like Zach LaVine has been in the NBA for about eleven years, but it turns out he's headed into Year Six, still just 24 years old. He's also coming off a season where he posted 23.7 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 4.5 apg, 1.0 spg and 1.9 3s, posting close to top-60 value in 9-category leagues. And speaking of that ninth category, if he can find a way to cut down on his turnovers (a career-worst 3.4 per game last season), he could fly much higher on the fantasy leaderboard. 

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, Steve Alexander and I sit down in Stamford, CT to discuss the outlook for LaVine, plus some load management questions around Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray in Denver, and Kristaps Porzingis in Dallas.
