I like him, easily a 1st rounder. He will get minutes right away and be a solid contributor wherever he goes.

Better shooting Josh Hart - that makes for a very good player.

Depending on matchups, he can play a more physical style than Kennard - both offensively and defensively.

At minimum he should be able to space the floor, provide some secondary playmaking and compete on defence and that's enough to get you a 10 year career. But that's more Courtney Lee and a career journeyman than anyone to get truly excited about as a fan.

His standing reach isn't much below average for a 2, so I don't expect he'll have trouble getting off his shot - especially since he has such a good step back move with a quick release - and the ability/strength to be physical in getting separation.

I'm not concerned about the shooting, I'm concerned about the defence and finishing around the rim. A poor wingspan is going to hurt him there and potentially significantly, which definitely caps his game.

I'm not saying you're wrong, but Tyler Herro has a shorter wingspan and was one of the top rookies in the NBA because of what he can do. Now, am I saying Bane is as good a prospect as Herro? No, I think Herro's on his way to becoming a special player, while Bane's more of a 6th man type.

A smaller Joe Johnson?

I won't go that far. Johnson had some really impressive counting numbers for his career - 20,000 points, 5,000 rebounds, 5,000 assists.

Might be my favorite prospect at the Jazz at #23. Reminds me of Wes Matthews/Joe Harris at the next level. His competitiveness and physical strength will allow him to be an asset on defense and I believe the shooting will translate. Will be a great spot up guy who can also make decisions against closeouts.

One doesn't simply change a 30 year allegiance like that *snaps fingers*
