His defense is porous. He cannot shoot outside consistently. His vision is limited impacting his PnR. I agree he needs another year. It's tough to go from a decent player in college to being a rotation player on a playoff team.

He's too good for the GLeague so just keep getting reps. He'll be okay next season.

What's his situation as an RFA in 2023? Like what's the max offer he can get from a team like OKC?

He finds his shot, he's going to be very good next year as, not as a rookie, but for all intents and purposes, a rookie. But his three and shot is very much a work in progress.

I watched the last stream, when they won by that clutch 3 by Bonga.

Banton is not too good for the Gleague. It wasn't like watching Fred back in the day - he didn't stand out, got bodied, made bad decisions in haste etc.

The game still needs to slow down for him, which is understandable given his path. I think he needs A LOT of reps with the 905.

I really like this kids game. He's a one man fast brake. He's the fastest player with the ball on our team. Looks like he's shooting better in the gleague too, atleast from 3. I wouldn't mind him getting some more reps with us.

He's gonna reinforce what we are tryna do in a good way.

He won't get minutes in the NBA this year so develop in G League and hopefully become a rotational player next season

Dalano kind of changed his style of game, similar to Flynn as the season has gone on. In the first few games you saw someone who showed court vision and only attacked when he saw an open lane. Now he tries to do too much offensively, and this is hurting him, just like it's hurting Flynn.

I think both players are kind of stuck playing the way the entire team was playing in the first couple of months when all this team seemed to do was have each individual player isolate and go one on one against the defense. For whatever reason Flynn started doing that this year after showing a good ability to run the point last season, especially the pick and roll. Similarly Banton has gone away from what made him successful in the first several games and is now trying to play too much like a combo guard. I don't know if both players were told to be more aggressive with their offense, but that's taking away from what they're good as.

Not a finished product.

Super tootsie.

But, Definitely not ready for regular burn.

Needs to hit the gym in the off season. He gets pushed around a lot which is why he’s struggling to initiate the offense.

A year away but a keeper. My issue is I see him in 905 games just driving through everyone and finishing over them . Things he can't do in the big league. He needs to work on his handle and running halfcourt offense, playmaking.

But I've only watched a few parts of 905 so may be off base
It is what it is, we'll have to see how things play out moving forward.

Flynn has never show the ability to run point and get the team into their sets. Being able to run the pick and roll doesn’t mean you have vision or can run a team it’s essentially a 2 man game.

I’ll never get why people claim Flynn was a playmaker he’s never shown that skill and it’s why he’s glued to the bench for 2 seasons now.

Honestly, has a very long way to go as an offensive player. The improved jump shot form is encouraging, but it didn't take long for defences to adjust to his drive game. I am currently higher on Champagnie because he has more of a niche game as a role player. Dalano has the higher ceiling, but I'm concerned about certain aspects of his game. Won't really know more until next season.

Right now it looks like he can turn into Kyle Anderson, which is a useful player for sure. The problem is, as a second round draft pick, his window is smaller to develop on our team.

I’ve seen him finish through contact and over defenders in the NBA. His issue is getting by his defender in the half court he can only get to the basket in transition.

Who knows if he’ll ever be ready when more rookies are coming in next season. Like Flynn he’s another overrated prospect by this board.

I look forward to seeing if Banton's game continues to develop. He isn't NBA ready this season.

In the event that this team proceeds to stink it up on this upcoming road trip and pivots towards a tank...I wouldn't be opposed to seeing more Banton with the big club...but otherwise I look forward to seeing him in summer league.
