We have picked Monk before on this last, before the Hornets last game, on account of him covering both the backup point guard and shooting guard slots while able to go for 20 points on any given night with increasing regularity.

Michael Carter-Williams has since returned from injury and the G-League, yet did not play as Monk kept the spot. Lamb has also featured here for his 2017/18 scoring breakout, while occasional starter and/or big minute backup Bacon averages 6.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals as a fifth choice wing option.

All three are listed here on account getting promoted tonight – with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist joining Nic Batum on the inactive list, this trio are now the main three wing options, thus improving their extant fantasy value further.

His price is starting to sneak up. Nevertheless, Lamb continues to outperform it. Lamb has scored 12, 15, 17, 16, 20 and 20 in the six games thus far, a remarkably consistent output, and it should therefore be very safe to assume a similar output tonight.

Lamb has featured on this list a few times, a key scorer and offensive player on the Batum-less Hornets, who is scoring at about the same rate and efficiency as he always does, except in a lot more minutes. Lamb is averaging a significant 16.6 points per game on the year, alongside 4.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game, and with his only rival for shooting guard time (rookie Malik Monk) also having to help out at point guard right now, Lamb will again get as much time as he can handle.

The Hornets have a lot of injuries at the moment, including a long term one to Nic Batum, and, until very recently, Michael-Kidd Gilchrist. The injuries in tandem opened up a lot of available minutes on the wing, and the absence of Batum in particular opened up a big need for scoring. Lamb has met that need, playing 32.5 minutes per game and returning averages of 15.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. The Hornets are currently very thin on the wings, arguably even when fully healthy; Lamb should get as many minutes as he can handle, and will always score.

Jeremy Lamb
SG, 6’5, 185lbs, 25 years old, 5 years of experience

Lamb had a career year off the bench, and continued his pattern of incremental improvements year on year, recording his fifth consecutive increase in PER. His outside shot is yet to develop, yet Lamb has become an elite mid-range player (having previously not been one at all), able to create looks off the dribble with his athleticism, length and scoring instincts. He also gets to the rim better than perhaps any other player on the team except Walker. Tailed off a bit down the stretch of the season, but so did everyone. As solid as Belinelli was and as needed as shooting is, with the salary cap picture stretched, it may well be worth moving him for the same sort of value he was brought in for, if possible, and expanding Lamb’s role. He has earned it.

Player Plan: Two years and $14,488,372 remaining. Proving he is worthy of that and more, but that’s a problem for down the road.

Pick 12: Recent years have seen remarkably few quality shooting guards taken, but this year bucks that trend. Houston takes Jeremy Lamb at 12, when he probably should have gone at 8. Or 4, considering he's better than Dion Waiters in all facets of the game.

Apart for one more airing for the phrase "fine young man," every single aspect of Lamb's breakdown is saved for his offensive game, yet this ignores his defense; when he's in the right mind to play it, as he was more regularly in 2010, Lamb can be a highly effectively two way player. Combine that with Courtney Lee, solid in all aspects of the game, and Houston have a solid tandem at the two guard spot.
