Portland Trail Blazers head coach Chauncey Billups recently had high praise for Orlando Magic rookie Paolo Banchero as a player.

(via Portland Trail Blazers):

“I’m impressed every time I see him play. He seems to have a ton of confidence out there and he scores at all three levels. Even though he doesn’t shoot a ton of threes, he can make them. He’s just so big. He handles the ball like a point guard, which puts you in a lot of different tough predicaments with him handling and coming off pick & rolls with small guys setting it. He’s just so big, he can rebound. He’s just kinda a matchup nightmare.”
