NBA Sixth Man Of The Year 2022 Betting Picks

In 1982-83 the NBA awarded Bobby Jones the Sixth Man of the Year Award. Jones, who played for the Philadelphia 76ers, was the first NBA player to receive the award, which acknowledges the NBA’s best performing player who comes off the bench as a substitute. That player is often referred to as “the sixth man.”

Five players have won the award multiple times. Lou Williams and Jamal Crawford are three time winners. Kevin McHale, Ricky Pierce and Detlef Schrempf have taken home the award twice.

Two players in the running for the award for the 2021-22 NBA season are previous recipients of the Sixth Man Award. Those men are Montrezl Harrell and Jordan Clarkson. Harrell won the award in 2020 while playing for the LA Clippers. He is currently a member of the Washington Wizards. Clarkson won the Sixth Man award in 2021 while playing for the Utah Jazz. He remains with the Jazz today.

The other players in the running for the 2022 NBA Sixth Man Award are Tyler Herro (Miami Heat), Kelly Oubre Jr. (Charlotte Hornets), Jalen Brunson (Dallas Mavericks) and Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Tyler Herro paces Heat

Tyler Herro has played in 41 games for the Miami Heat this season. He has started 10 of those games. With Miami’s stars, Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo missing time because of injuries, the 22-year-old Herro is leading the team in points per game with 20.3.

Herro, who is in his third year with the Heat after the team selected him with the 13th pick in the 2019 NBA Entry Draft, is having a career season. His points per game average is up significantly over his 15.1 from last season and he is getting more opportunities this year with 17.6 field goals attempted per game, which is an improvement over the 12.9 he had last season.

Miami is currently the No. 1 team in the Eastern Conference and Herro’s play is a big reason for where the Heat sit in the standings.

Kelly Oubre Jr.

Kelly Oubre Jr. was a starter for the Phoenix Suns in 2020 and for the Golden State Warriors in 2021. In August, Oubre signed a two-year $26 million free agent deal with the Charlotte Hornets. Oubre, who was the 15th pick in the 2015 NBA Entry Draft (Atlanta Hawks), is coming off the bench for the Hornets and he has been playing well.

In 45 games this season, Oubre is averaging 16.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 1.2 steals per game while shooting 46% from the field and hitting 37% of his free throws.

Montrezl Harrell

Montrezl Harrell won the 2020 Sixth Man Award on the strength of a season that saw him score 18.6 points per game and 7.1 rebounds. He had a league high 11 double-doubles off the bench for the Los Angeles Clippers that season. Harrell’s role changed last season while he played for the Los Angeles Lakers. In August, Harrell was part of the package that sent Russell Westbrook from the Washington Wizards to the Lakers. The Wizards have been a better fit for the former Sixth Man Award winner.

Harrell is averaging 13.9 points per game and hitting his field goal attempts at a 65.3% rate. He is also pulling down 7.0 rebounds a game.
