Dalano Banton: 3-point shooting
Banton was extremely impressive on the defensive end in Summer League competition, averaging 2.0 steals and 1.4 blocks per game. While Banton made a strong case for more playing time in the wake of his performance, concerns about his offensive potential as a rookie were validated.
Banton, a 24% 3-point shooter in college, failed to make even one of his attempts from deep. Considering the fact that his finishing near the rim is quite solid for a player of his caliber, unlocking a 3-point shot could do wonders for his game as a whole.
Dalano Banton must become a better shooter for the Toronto Raptors.
There is a ton to like about Banton and his potential. A 6-9 point guard with handles, a high defensive motor, and the athletic ability to make plays in transition, being even an average 3-point shooter with a low volume of attempts per game could be what the Raptors need from him in order to give him more minutes.
Banton will likely be rooted to the end of the bench until either one of the players ahead of him in the rotation is unable to perform at the level the coaching staff expects or Banton makes the necessary adjustments in his game. A guard with his size and a solid jumper would be a handful for even the staunchest of perimeter defenders.
