2019 Fantasy Outlook
For an undrafted free agent, Motley is seemingly a diamond in the rough set to thrive if given the opportunity. Unfortunately for the Baylor product, that chance isn't likely to come with the Clippers during the 2019-20 campaign, barring major injuries in front of him. Motley showed solid potential right from the start of his NBA career, as he averaged 8.7 points and 4.5 rebounds across 16.0 minutes over 11 games with the Mavericks back in the 2017-18 season. Following a July 2018 trade to the Clippers, Motley spent 27 games (25 starts) with the G League's Ontario Agua Caliente last season and dominated at that level, averaging 24.5 points, 10.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists across 34.2 minutes, shooting 55.3 percent overall, including 29.6 percent from distance. He also doubled up his number of games at the NBA level to 22 during the 2018-19 campaign and actually put up better per-36 numbers than in his rookie season despite averaging just under nine minutes fewer per contest. Motley returned to Los Angeles on a two-way deal this past July 24 after not being extended a qualifying offer in late June, and he's likely to spend a bulk of his time with Agua Caliente yet again barring unforeseen circumstances. Despite his ability to fill both frontcourt spots, Motley is looking up at a depth chart that runs at least four-deep ahead of him at each of those positions heading into training camp.
