After selecting a versatile wing in the first round, the Toronto Raptors have doubled down with some more versatility and size in the second round taking a pair of long guards with picks 46 and 47.
At 46, Toronto kept the Dalano Banton home. The 21-year-old Torontonian is a 6-foot-9 point guard who averaged 9.6 points, 3.9 assists, and 5.9 rebounds as a redshirt sophomore at Nebraska last year.
"He has an excellent IQ and is a great passer," Canadian basketball scout Wesley Brown said. "Legit 6’9, fluid, can do it all. Just needs to improve his shot."
Immediately following Banton's selection, Toronto added another long guard in David Johnson, a 6-foot-5 guard out of Lousiville. Johnson, 20, averaged 12.6 points, 3.2 assists, and 5.8 rebounds per game while shooting 38.6% from three-point range.
The two guards add a little bit more size and versatility to the back of Toronto's deep backcourt rotation.
