Desmond Bane is a skilled swingman that may project to be a shooting specialist in the NBA. He’s a career 43% three-point shooter in college that can really knock down shots. Shooting is his only elite skill, but it is a valuable one that could perhaps allow him to carve out a long career as a role player in the NBA.
