2019 Fantasy Outlook
Claxton was selected by the Nets with the first pick in the second round of the 2019 Draft. The 6-foot-11, 215-pound center spent two seasons at Georgia. Last year, he earned Second Team All-SEC (Coaches) honors, averaging 13.0 points (46.0 FG%, 28.1 3P%, 64.1 FT%), 8.6 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, 1.8 assists and 1.1 steals across 31.6 minutes. Appearing in four summer league contests, Claxton posted 5.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game. Claxton has clear upside as a defender, and it's possible he develops an outside shot. However, he was just 26-for-86 (30.2 percent) from deep in his 65 college appearances and hit only 61.1 percent of his 257 free-throws. With Brooklyn, Claxton is firmly behind the likes of DeAndre Jordan and Jarrett Allen in the center rotation, and the rookie will probably only see real action if there is an injury.

Double-doubles in win

February 22, 2020
Claxton generated 21 points (8-10 FG, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, three blocks, two steals and one assist in 19 minutes during Friday's win over Lakeland.
ANALYSIS
Claxton dominated during his 19 minutes of run, finishing with a plus-34 net rating on the night. Although he's struggled to find minutes on the NBA level, Claxton appears to be head and shoulder above other G League players. In four games with Long Island, he's posting 14.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 blocks in just 15.2 minutes per contest.
