Paolo Banchero is officially on the board of the NBA Summer League.

Banchero fired a wide-open three-pointer early in the first quarter, giving the Magic a temporary 9-4 lead over the Rockets.

Magic fans can certainly get used to seeing this for the next several years.

Banchero can do it all on the floor, whether it's shooting from the outside or beating players inside the paint.

He averaged 17 points, eight rebounds and three assists during the 2021-22 season with Duke and also shot 48% from the floor.

Orlando will be hoping he can put up similar numbers as a rookie and then develop into an even greater force.

You can watch the remainder of the game on ESPN after the NHL Draft ends.
