DEN vs PHX Dream 11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details

Share

Las Vegas aka “Sin City”  is right now hosting NBA Summer League games and it will send sparks among the players trying to prove their worth and earn two-way contracts. In this game, Denver Nuggets will take on the Phoenix Suns in the inter-conference battle. More about DEN vs PHX Dream 11 will be given below.

DEN vs PHX Dream 11 Prediction

The Summer League is an unpredictable avenue. For the rookies and sophomores who were picked high and had a lot of fanfare around them, this serves as a training ground. For the undrafted ones and one for the ones who are looking for a home, these games matter a whole lot more. The Nuggets are in “win-now” mode and Suns are already the NBA Finalists so the pieces they need are pretty much there so this is more of a route to develop their young players and hope athletes like Bol Bol and Jalen Smith move in the right trajectory and become consistent contributors in the long run.

DEN vs PHX Top Picks

1. Bol Bol 
Points: 26
Rebounds: 09
Assists: 00

Bol Bol is athletic and although he is of thing build, he has the tools to finish inside through his terrific dribbling skills. Although he is big, his game is more like a Small Forward, and his more than handy shooting touch make him a multi-dimensional player.  Bol is a candidate as the Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.

2. Jalen Smith 
Points: 12
Rebounds: 15
Assists: 00
Smith is improving as a Forward and “Stix” has also now built a strong body. He is a great athlete and can finish at the rim and has come up in the Summer League with more intent. He can become a decent backup in a deep Suns suad.  Jalen can be chosen as a Pro-Player in the Dream 11 Fantasy scenario.

3. Na’hson Hayland
Points: 16
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 07
Hyland is a talented rookie who has shown that he can fit in the Nuggets rotation as a shooter. He also has playmaking skills and can also perform some inside plays, making him a more than viable guard.

4. Ty-Shon Alexander
Points: 16
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 01
The sophomore will be playing behind a sturdy guard lineup of Chris Paul and Elfrid Payton. Ty-Shon is primarily a shooter and plays like an off-guard. Alexander has shown certain improvements in the Summer League.

5. Davon Reed
Points: 10
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 01

Reed is an SF who can stretch the floor through his effective shooting and has shown a lot of promise.

6. Tarik Black
Points: 04
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 00

7. Justin Simon
Points: 10
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 02
