2019 Fantasy Outlook
Over two NBA seasons, Blakeney's role in Chicago has remained relatively unchanged. After posting nearly identical campaigns, Blakeney is averaging 7.5 points and 1.8 rebounds across 15.0 minutes per game while shooting 35.7 percent from behind the arc. That percentage got a huge boost after last season, where Blakeney shot an impressive 39.6 percent from three-point range. Entering his third season with the Bulls, it would be a surprise if Blakeney's role expanded, and if anything, it could be reduced. A healthy Zach LaVine is locked in as the starting shooting guard and should average well over 30 minutes per game, which likely leaves either Blakeney or Denzel Valentine to likely slot in behind him. Valentine's serious ankle injury that kept him out for all of last season allowed Blakeney to step into a fairly consistent role off the bench, so those two will likely be battling for that role during training camp so long as Valentine is back healthy. If not, the spot in the rotation is almost certainly Blakeney's to lose. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $2.94 million contract with the Bulls in July of 2018. Waived by the Bulls in September of 2019.

September 23, 2019
Blakeney agreed to a contract Monday with the Jiangsu Dragons of the Chinese Basketball Association, Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The 22-year-old will take his talents overseas after appearing in 76 games for the Bulls over the past two seasons before he was cut by the team earlier this month. With Blakeney unable to secure a contract with meaningful guaranteed money from another NBA team before training camps open, he'll look to impress in China and potentially resurface in North America next spring when the CBA season wraps up.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Undrafted in 2017 after two seasons at LSU, Blakeney landed a two-way deal with the Bulls. He won G-League Rookie of the Year, averaging 32.0 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.2 steals. Blakeney also shot 46.2 percent from the field and hit 2.8 threes per tilt at 35.4 percent. Chicago rewarded his efforts this summer by inking him to a standard, multi-year contract. His role will probably be relatively minimum given the presence of Zach LaVine, but coach Fred Hoiberg managed to find 16.5 minutes per game across his 19 appearances with the parent club in 2017-18. Blakeney can be ignored in most Fantasy formats, but could be someone to keep an eye on for deeper dynasty leagues.
