Between business commitments (including those in our country), vacations in Italy and the World Cup coming up: busy summer for Paolo Banchero.
The Magic’s talent, however, is also finding time to train individually. And he chose to work very hard on the shooting, both from distance and average, to improve his set of skills offensive.
In the “home” he has an outstanding master such as. Mike Miller, currently his agent. Banchero, however, in addition to his attorney, also trained with Kevin Durant, allegedly around Los Angeles, where he watched the soccer match between his Milan team and Juventus.
In the mountainous clip from Swisch Cultures you can see Banchero replicating several movements performed by Durant. These are mostly starts with receiving behind the basket and then finishing with shots from the mid-range. Also present at the session was Adam Harrington, a former guard with a background in the NBA, Europe and the Brooklyn Nets coaching staff.

Banchero in the video shows very good fluidity of movement but (as is normal) the difference with the elegance of Durant, one of the best players ever, especially from the offensive point of view, is evident.
