AAU Team: Seattle Rotary

Strengths: Banchero is a versatile forward with elite footwork who can stretch the floor with his shooting ability. His combined size, soft touch and athleticism make him a gifted scorer on all three levels. Bachero also has a polished back to the basket game utilizing drop hooks and floaters in one-on-one situations to avoid shot blockers. He has very few weaknesses in his offensive game and is on track to become one of the top players in his class.
Improvement Opportunity: As mentioned, Banchero has very few glaring offensive weaknesses to his game; however, he could benefit from developing into more of a two-way player by becoming more aggressive on defense.
Projection: He has Alabama, Kansas, Montana, Oklahoma, USC and more.
