After an inauspicious first two thirds of the season with the Pelicans, Hield had a very good end to the year with the Kings, scoring 15.1 points per game on an extremely high .600%. As a full season body of work, it wasn’t bad; as a 25-game sample size, it was a very exciting sign for the future. There is a lot of work to do defensively, where, even if his projection is not the most favourable considering his body type, he could at least stop looking so lost. But that was true of most of the team. Perhaps as they grow, he will too.
Player Plan: Three years of rookie scale salary remaining. Off to a good start. Keep and see.
