PLAYER RANGE: Top Starter - NBA All-Star

Updated 12/18/2021

PLAYER COMPARISON: Glen Robinson, Pascal Siakam
UNDENIABLE SKILL: Scoring
STRENGTHS: Pro ready physique. Banchero possesses a really good handle with the ability to put the ball on the floor and operate and score efficiently in the midrange on isolation situations. Great ability to catch and shoot, does all work before ball is passed to him. Understands one on one basketball. Can get his shot off on anyone. Possesses scorers mentality. Hungry to get a basket. Banchero continues to demonstrate the ability to be a good passer.
CONCERNS: Banchero has an average athletic profile. Rebounding numbers are subpar for someone his size and ability. Not a high level defensive player. Banchero seems to lack the motor to provide more value and supplement his offensive basketball abilities. There are concerns that Banchero may have a poorer fuel economy (how soon he gets tired) due to his physical makeup (girth, body mass.) Banchero loses an average of 7lbs of sweat per game due to his biomechanics. Cramps and hydration issues have already become an issue for this prospect.
