Draft Notes

Bane is an unheralded prospect but one of the most efficient shooters/scorers in the country. He’s got good size for the shooting guard position and elite shooting touch. He’s not a super high end athlete and could struggle some with NBA speed but with the pro game moving more and more to spacing and 3pt shooting there’s a spot for Bane in the League.

His outside shooting is his primary NBA skill. He’s got a quick release on his jumper, excels in catch and shoot situations and can also get his shot off the dribble. He hits a high percentage from 3, from the field and from the FT line.

He’s not great at getting above the rim and is more of a low center of gravity player. He’s got broad shoulders and natural strength. Doesn’t appear to have plus length.

He’s an older prospect, born in 1998.
