2019 Fantasy Outlook
Milton logged 20 games as a rookie second-round pick last season, averaging 4.4 points (on 39.1 percent shooting) and 1.8 rebounds across 13.4 minutes. The SMU product was a lights-out three-point shooter in college, shooting over 40.0 percent from three-point range in each of his seasons with the Mustangs. Given his limited playing time in his first pro campaign, Milton didn't have much of a chance to develop his marksmanship at the pro level, draining 31.8 percent of his 2.2 three-point attempts per game. Milton did show plenty of promise while suiting up for 27 games as a member of the G League's Delaware Blue Coats, averaging 24.9 points (on 48.4 percent shooting, including 36.7 percent from three-point range), 5.3 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals across 34.7 minutes. The 22-year-old didn't manage a successful encore in Las Vegas Summer League play, however, shooting an abysmal 17.0 percent across 22.0 minutes over three games before suffering an ankle sprain. Looking ahead to the 2019-20 campaign, Milton could be in line for a nice bump in opportunity in the wake of T.J. McConnell's offseason departure, which opens up a prominent spot in the backcourt rotation. The second-year pro will have plenty of competition for minutes at point guard behind Ben Simmons from young veterans Trey Burke and Raul Neto, with the depth chart -- and by extension, Milton's role and destination to open the season -- likely to become increasingly clear over the course of training camp and preseason.

College/International Summary

Milton was brought to SMU by coach Larry Brown for the 2015-16 season. The freshman guard lasted longer than his coach, who left 21 games into the season. The 6-foot-5 guard started 23 games and provided 10.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists for the Mustangs. He was a starter as a sophomore next to Sterling Brown and put up 13.0 points, 4.5 assists and 4.1 rebounds for coach Tim Jankovich. The team only lost twice after Dec. 2 and swept through the American Athletic Tournament as Milton averaged 10.3 points and 5.3 assists. The guard had 11 points, five rebounds and five assists in the first-round loss to USC in the NCAA Tournament. A broken hand limited Milton to 22 games in his junior season, but he averaged 18.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists and was named to the All-AAC Second Team for the second straight season. He scored a career-high 33 points in a win over Wichita State. Milton declared for the 2017 NBA Draft with one season of eligibility remaining and was chosen by the Dallas Mavericks in the second round (54th overall pick).

Decent output in Game 3 loss
GPhiladelphia 76ers
August 21, 2020
Milton went for 17 points (6-18 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and a steal in 38 minutes during Friday's 102-94 Game 3 loss against the Celtics.
ANALYSIS
The young point guard has been a pleasant surprise, scored 13 or more points in all three playoff games so far, but this was his best yet. He might have struggled from the field in this one, but Milton's minutes are trending up and he's offering nice low-cost production for fantasy purposes.
