Georgia Tech center James Banks declares for the 2019 NBA Draft. Banks is a junior transfer last season from Texas. He was named to the ACC’s All-Defensive team this past season and had a major role for the Jackets. Banks was a big part of the Jackets offense as he averaged 10.5 points and 7.7 rebounds. He finished the season with a 56.4 shooting percentage. On the defensive side, he averaged 2.5 blocks. The good news for the Jackets is that he can return to school if things don’t go well with the NBA. If he does in fact get drafted, then this would be the second straight season that Pastner would lose a major contributor to the team.
