In terms of redundancy, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk and Sam Hauser bring much of the same thing: mainly, shooting, shooting, and more shooting, but not a whole lot else on the basketball court on a given night.
While neither grades out as a bottom-tier defender, neither is known as particularly stout on that side of the court either. It’s not a direct one-to-one choice between either or, not officially at least, but it feels that way. Hauser’s deal would be shipped off in a low-stakes deal if Mykhailiuk won the perimeter war.
A possible victim of the Holiday trade, Dalano Banton’s future is a lot less clear now than it was when the “Point Tatum” rumors were circulating and when White was the presumed starting floor general.
While Banton brings great size to the point guard position at six-foot-nine along with a fiery defensive intensity, his 27.5% shooting from beyond the arc for his career could have his non-guaranteed regular season roster spot in jeopardy. Of anyone that’d potentially get cut, Banton feels the most likely to be converted to a two-way contract if the front office wants to switch their current salary cap sheet up.
