Can't forget about Grant Riller either.
So many players will fall into the 2nd round that can make a team like Devon Dotson. It's sad the Suns are without a pick in this round.
This might be the best second round I can remember at least on paper.
Too bad his game doesn't translate to the NBA at all. The next Ty Jerome.
His release is low in front of his eyes. I’ll need to watch his in-game clips but it doesn’t seem like he gets a lot of lift.
Riller can create so I might be more concerned about Bane's low release on shot.
Neither should be drafted before the middle of the second round.
We keep hearing about Bane and Riller. A lot of it I have seen on Kellan Olson tweets.
It makes me wonder if he knows something we don't.
I really hope not. If James Jones reaches for either of these guys in the first round, let alone at 10, he should be fired on the spot.
I have a feeling that we are going to trade down with Boston and get a couple of first round picks for #10. Maybe they trade #14 and #30 for Suns pick.
I doubt Boston gives up #14 and #26 although that would be preferable.
A flyer on Bane or Riller at 30 wouldn't be great, but at least it wouldn't be egregious and firing-worthy, depending on who is the pick at 14. If Jones takes Bane or Riller at 14, he should be fired on the spot.
I wouldn't take Bane or Riller at 14 either.
Bane at #10 is stupid. Projecting Bane as a middle of the second round pick is equally as stupid.
Bane is going to go in the first round. If he would be there at 26 in a hypothetical trade with Boston, I'm not sure.
There are sites (most notably nbadraft.net) that project Bane not to be drafted at all.
He is a one trick pony. He can shoot, and nothing else, and his low and not particularly quick release, combined with his lack of athleticism and ball handling ability, suggests strongly that this one skill he does have won't translate to the NBA.
Davon Reed, part deux.
