Cassius Stanley stands out as an incredibly explosive 3-and-D wing from this NBA Draft, but can he catch the attention of the Milwaukee Bucks?
A natural high-flyer, Cassius Stanley is looking to make quite the entrance into the NBA as he’s declared for the 2020 NBA Draft.
Having long been a high-profile recruit since transferring to Sierra Canyon in California for his final two years of school and where he won two straight state championships, Stanley has been accustomed to playing on a big stage.
That certainly carried over on to the collegiate level where he attended Duke University and joined the recent spate of one-and-done prospects to pass through the school by declaring for the draft after the premature end to the 2019-20 season.
While Stanley’s pro career has yet to even get started, his dreams of being in the league aren’t just rooted into having a playing career as he told HoopsHype’s Bryan Kalbrosky last month that he dreams of being an NBA commissioner one day:
“I feel like the sport of basketball is the field I want to take on. So right now, I’m obviously working on the playing field in that sport. But I feel like you are only going to play the game for 10 or 12 years max, if you are lucky. After that, you have a whole life story. I feel like I want to stay in the field of basketball and I feel like I don’t really want to be a broadcaster or a coach, so I feel like being the commissioner would be the best thing. I’m really interested in it. I’ll see what I can while I’m playing, what internships and things I can do to get involved.”
In his 29 appearances with the Blue Devils, Stanley averaged 12.6 points on .474/.260/.733 shooting splits, 4.9 rebounds, an assist and 0.7 steals across 27.4 minutes per game.
So without further ado, let’s dive into the game of Cassius Stanley by evaluating his strengths and weaknesses, see where draft experts currently rate him and examine his potential fit with the Milwaukee Bucks.
