Mario Hezonja's predicted stats for the 2017-18 NBA season:
• 6.0 PPG
• 2.5 RPG
• 1.6 APG
• 0.7 SPG
• 0.1 BPG
• 1.3 TOV
• 17.2 MPG
• 39.8% FG
• 29.3% 3PT
• 84.0% FT
Mario Hezonja is most likely on his last stand with the Orlando Magic. The fifth overall selection in the 2015 NBA Draft has yet to live up to, if not underperformed to his expectations ever since. Players from said draft class have gone on to shock the NBA world, especially those who were chosen in the lottery. Players like Karl-Anthony Towns (1), Kristaps Porzingis (4), Myles Turner (11) and Devin Booker (13) are developing into future stars while players like Hezonja, Jahlil Okafor (3), Emmanuel Mudiay (7) and Justise Winslow (10) have been left in the dust. While of course there is still hope for these young guys to grow into the players we wish they become, they have just disappointed us to this point.
I believe that Hezonja will for sure receive more minutes next year, despite a down season following his rookie campaign. He fails to shoot over 40% FG sand 30% 3PT, and will probably shoot even worse next year, but this being potentially his last shot, he'll have to make the most of it. In a crowded backcourt, consisting of four shooting guards, Mario will truly have to show he deserves his role in Orlando's future.
