Top Dalano Banton News

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Double-double against Delaware

    Banton posted 34 points (14-26 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 11 assists, eight rebounds, three blocks and a steal across 44 minutes in Sunday's 143-139 loss to the Delaware Blue Coats in the Eastern Conference Final.

    Banton led his team in blocks and assists Sunday and finished second in points, but his six turnovers against the Blue Coats turned out to be very costly in the playoff defeat. He made seven G League appearances in his rookie season, finishing with 24.1 points, 8.9 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game on 51.1 percent shooting from the field.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Double-double in playoff win

    Banton put up 25 points (10-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, seven assists, a block and a steal across 35 minutes in Thursday's 131-126 victory over the Capital City Go-Go in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

    Banton led his team in rebounds and finished second in points and assists as 905 downed the Go-Go in a tight contest. He'll want to do it all again Sunday versus either Delaware or Motor City in the G League Eastern Conference Final.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Moves to 905

    Toronto assigned Banton to the G League's Raptors 905 on Tuesday, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

    Banton isn't a part of head coach Nick Nurse's regular rotation, so he'll join the G League affiliate in advance of the 905's playoff game Thursday. Armoni Brooks or Malachi Flynn will likely serve as the backup to starting point guard Fred VanVleet in the Raptors' game Tuesday versus the Hawks.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Efficient 21 points in G League

    Banton recorded 21 points (10-17 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and nine assists across 34 minutes in Saturday's 119-113 victory over the Greensboro Swarm.

    Banton has only played seven games for the 905 this season, but he's averaging 24.1 points, 8.9 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game when he suits up for the G League team this season. At the NBA level, the 2021 second-rounder has mostly just provided point guard depth.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Back with NBA team

    Toronto recalled Banton from the G League's Raptors 905 on Wednesday, Vivek Jacob of the Raptors' official site reports.

    Banton could fill a spot in the Raptors' rotation Thursday against the Pistons, though his usage will likely hinge on whether Fred VanVleet (knee) returns from a two-game absence. Even if VanVleet is out, Banton may only occupy a limited backup role behind Malachi Flynn, who has impressed while starting in place of the All-Star for the past two games.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Scores 22 points against Skyhawks

    Banton tallied 22 points (9-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and a steal across 25 minutes in Wednesday's 128-104 victory over the College Park Skyhawks.

    Banton was back in the G League on Wednesday and he continued his offensive production. He's averaging 24.7 points and 9.2 rebounds per game this season off of 50 percent shooting for 905.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Reports to G League

    Toronto assigned Banton to the G League's Raptors 905 on Wednesday, Doug Smith of the Toronto Star reports.

    Even with top point guard Fred VanVleet (knee) sidelined for both ends of the Raptors' back-to-back set with Brooklyn to begin the week, Banton hasn't been a major beneficiary. Instead, Malachi Flynn was elevated to the starting lineup and performed well in victories Monday and Tuesday, while Banton logged just 19 minutes between those contests. Banton will likely be recalled ahead of Toronto's next game Thursday versus Detroit, but he's unlikely to be included in the rotation if VanVleet is ready to go for that contest.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: All-around performance in G League

    Banton totaled 12 points (4-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 100-98 victory over the Greensboro Swarm.

    Banton didn't shoot well versus Greensboro on Wednesday (26.7 percent from the floor), but he still managed a respectable points total along with leading his team in assists and having a solid defensive performance. He's averaging 25.2 points per game in the G League this season and shooting 50.5 percent from the field and 40 percent from deep, so he is a threat every time he plays for 905.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Rejoins NBA team

    Toronto recalled Banton from the G League's Raptors 905 on Thursday, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

    Banton headed to the G League over the NBA All-Star break, suiting up Wednesday in the 905's win over the Greensboro Swarm and playing 34 minutes. Prior to the break, Banton had settled in as the primary backup to starting point guard Fred VanVleet, but the rookie hasn't garnered enough playing time to warrant much attention outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues. Through the Raptors' first nine games of February, Danton averaged 3.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 11.3 minutes per contest.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Active Tuesday

    Banton was called up by Toronto and is active for Tuesday's game against Charlotte.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Leads scoring against Westchester

    Banton posted 31 points (12-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds and four assists across 35 minutes in Monday's 112-105 victory over the Westchester Knicks. He also had two steals and a block in the game.

    Banton once again was very effective for 905 on Monday, and the rookie is averaging 27.4 points, 7.5 rebounds, five assists and 1.4 steals per game in eight G League appearances.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Assigned to G League

    Toronto assigned Banton to the G League's Raptors 905 on Monday, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Back with NBA team

    Toronto recalled Banton from the G League's Raptors 905 on Sunday, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

    Banton has been included in Toronto's rotation for most of the season, but the rookie has seemingly fallen out of favor with head coach Nick Nurse since the calendar flipped to 2022. Though Banton dazzled with 23 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in his most recent G League appearance Saturday for the 905, he could still find himself outside of the rotation as he rejoins the Raptors ahead of Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers. Nurse has favored extremely streamlined rotations of late, with Scottie Barnes typically initiating the offense on the rare occasions starting point guard Fred VanVleet checks out of the contest.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: All-around performance in win

    Banton tallied 23 points (10-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists and two steals across 32 minutes in Saturday's 119-102 victory over the Cleveland Charge.

    Banton once again led 905 in scoring against Cleveland, and he's averaging 26.9 points and eight rebounds per game off a very efficient 50.7 percent shooting from the field. He could improve his 61.9 percent free-throw shooting, but he's been a monster for opposing defenses every time he plays in the G League.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Leads scoring in tight win

    Banton posted 33 points (13-22 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 205 FT), 13 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a block across 38 minutes in Thursday's 116-114 victory over the Cleveland Charge.

    Banton led 905 in scoring, rebounding and assists Thursday, and he tied for the team lead in steals as well. He also turned the ball over six times against the Charge, but his play was stellar beyond that.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Returns to G League

    Banton was assigned to the G League's Raptors 905 on Thursday, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.

    Banton didn't appear in any of the last three games for the parent club and will now head back to the G League. The 22-year-old should see additional run with Raptors 905.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Big double-double in G League win

    Banton posted 27 points (12-29 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 13 rebounds, six assists and a block across 38 minutes in Monday's 103-102 victory against the Long Island Nets.

    Banton returned to 905 Monday and led his team in points, offensive rebounds and assists against Long Island. He averages 26.4 points per game in the G League, and he shot well from deep in the game (42.9 percent) compared to his season total of 29 percent.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Available Friday

    Banton (knee) is off the injury report for Friday's contest against the Clippers.

    A knee injury and protocols have kept the rookie out for three of the past four games. This month, he's averaging 3.0 points, 3.7 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 13.3 minutes.

  • Raptors' Dalano Banton: Expected to play vs. Clips

    Banton (knee) is expected to be available for Friday's game against the Clippers, Steven Loung of Sportsnet reports.

    Banton was placed in COVID-19 protocols more than a week ago, but he was also battling a bruised knee that kept him out of Tuesday's game against the Sixers. The rookie was able to practice Thursday, however, so the Raptors are considering him probable -- alongside most of their regulars -- for Friday's contest. With the likes of OG Anunoby, Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet expected back, Banton will likely return to somewhat of a reduced role off the bench.
