Paolo Banchero is projected to be a sure-fire pick for the lottery in the draft this year. Banchero has had an impressive season at Duke in the Power Forward position and has put up impressive numbers, scoring 17.8 PPG and 7.8 RPG. Analysts believe Banchero will be one of the top picks in the draft due to his NBA ready frame, confident that he could slot right into the starting lineup of any team that drafts him. He has incredible skills on both sides of the court and, despite his size, has amazing ball handling for a big man.
Teams that are looking for a Power Forward should really consider taking Banchero if they get the chance. He would fit nicely into any team that are missing a hole in that position such as Orlando Magic or the Houston Rockets, as he can play both the 3 and the 4 positions, making him an incredibly versatile player.
Many are expecting to see big things from Banchero in the coming years and are looking forward to seeing where he will land in the NBA 2022 Draft.
