All three have very different bodies of course, but nice balance to their offensive skillsets, none of them twitchy enough to spend much time in the paint, solid and committed defensively. Middleton panned out, Crabbe panned out juuuust enough to get a big payday under freak circumstances.
Kind of the one contract only mold if things work out. Middleton hit supernova in the mold, developing shot creation off the dribble, but yeah Crabbe was a great guy to have until his payday came. I would draft Bane knowing he'd be a valuable rotation 3&D wing on a rookie scale, and either trading him or letting him walk before his next contract, unless he developed an outlier ability like Khris did.
He's really good right now, which is a plan I'm down with versus a project play. The right project of course could entice though, a la Poku or Jaden.
Any thoughts on whether or not Poku will be there? If he is, I don't think I could pass on him - even though he is a project. His basketball instincts and body control at 7 foot are just too good, and he'll fill out - just 18.
