2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hunter, selected by the Hawks with the fourth overall pick in the 2019 Draft, is arguably the most versatile defensive player in the rookie class, and he helped lead Virginia to a National Championship as a sophomore last season. He projects as a three-and-D forward who can be relied upon as a spot-up shooter and defend multiple positions, notably shooting 46-for-105 (43.8 percent) from three and averaging a combined 1.2 steals/blocks in 2018-19. Hunter figures to slot in as Atlanta's starting small forward, completing a young presumed lineup of Trae Young, Kevin Hurter, John Collins and Alex Len. Hunter doesn't have huge upside as a fantasy asset considering he was a low-usage player in college (10.4 FGA and 2.0 APG), but he has the potential to provide value in the three-pointers, rebounding and defensive categories.

That production led to Pennsylvania Class AA Player of the Year and First-Team All-State AA honors. Off the court, Hunter has volunteered for the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge and Aids Fund.

College/International Summary

As a freshman in 2017-18, Hunter was arguably Virginia's best player, but missed the NCAA Tournament with a wrist injury. The Cavaliers became the first one-seed to lose in the NCAA Tournament to UMBC. Coach Tony Bennett's team came back in Hunter's sophomore season with a steely resolve and the 6-8 forward helped the squad to the National Championship. He was second on the team with 15.2 points and 5.1 rebounds. The forward converted 52.0 percent of his field goals and 43.8 percent from beyond the arc. He provided 20 points or more in 10 games, but saved his best game for last. In the national championship game against Texas Tech, Hunter led the Cavaliers with a season-high 27 points and played staunch defense against Red Raider guard Jarrett Culver. He added nine rebounds and hit a game-tying 3-pointer with 12.9 seconds remaining in regulation. Hunter led the mass exodus from the National Champions by declaring for the 2019 NBA Draft after two seasons in Charlottesville. He was chosen by the Los Angeles Lakers with the fourth overall pick but was dealed to both the New Orleans Pelicans and the Atlanta Hawks before the start of the 2019-20 NBA season.

Drops third double-double
FAtlanta Hawks
March 9, 2020
Hunter finished with 13 points (3-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-5 FG), 11 boards, and two assists in 37 minutes during Monday's 143-138 double-overtime win over the Hornets.
The knee bruise that originally had him questionable ahead of the contest turned out not to be an issue. This marks the rookie's third career double-double. His scoring has dipped this month after a surge in February, but with his spot in the rotation secure, Hunter will continue to get plenty of opportunities as he grows his game.
