Dalano Banton Scouting ProfileApril 26, 2021
Dalano Banton was not on my list of NBA prospects heading into this season, but it only took a couple of game for him to be considered one of my top prospects for the 2021 NBA Draft. Banton is a 6’9′” point guard that fills the stat sheet and is a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. Banton has the ball handling and aggressive mindset to attack slower bigs off the dribble, while also being able to post smaller guards and make plays for teammates passing out of double teams. His blend of passing vision, basketball IQ and raw athletic tools just make you salivate. He isn’t a point guard per se probably more of a point forward, but his versatility fits the modern position less NBA and he could become a playmaking four. He needs to become a more consistent shooter especially from the 3-point line but Banton has a unique blend of size and skills that should make him one of the most intriguing prospects to an NBA team.
I project him as a potential 1st round pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
