Rotational Dance: NBA Pacific Division Projected Playing Time

With preseason only weeks away, rosters are beginning to take shape across the league, thus beginning the rotational dance. Player roles and NBA playing time can be crucial when deciding on who to draft. Today I finish up with the Pacific Division. I worked through the projected starting lineups for every team, but also considered the probable roles for bench players as well. I outline my projected playing time for each player, as well as their likely ADP’s. Starters are typically going to have more value than the role players. However, a number of bench guys should still have value across most standard formats.

Keep in mind, this is where I have seen players going in mock drafts. The numbers do not necessarily reflect where I might have certain players ranked overall. For that, you can check out @adamking91‘s 2019-20 Fantasy Basketball Rankings!
