On February 11, Tim Frazier posted a stat line of 23 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists in a win over Nebraska, leaving him just shy of his first career triple-double. Draymond Green was the only player in the league to reach that epic feat last season, but he has since graduated.
While Frazier was the closest player to achieving a triple-double on this list last season, another player highlighted in this article posted a triple-double two years ago as a freshman.
Reaching double figures in three major statistical categories is no easy feat. While it happens all the time in the NBA, we need to realize that not only are NBA games eight minutes longer, but their shot clock is always 11 seconds less, which means way more possessions.
The players highlighted in this article are those whom I believe are the most likely to reach triple-double status this upcoming year. While none will definitely reach this accomplishment, all have the ability to do so on any given night.
