Lovro Mazalin, next big prospect from Croatia?

After Dario Saric 94. and Mario Hezonja 95. I'm quite sure Croatia got one more big prospect to folow. 97. born Lovro Mazalin.

Mazalin, recently mesured 202cm (bit under 6'8) without shoes at Jordan Brand Classic where he won MVP for his team. So by NBA standards he is close to 6'9, and turned just 16 recntly

here is yesterday game vs Lithuania last 3 and half minutes and overtime where ho took over game and showed his classy talent.

It was U-18 games and other kids are 2 and 1 year older then him at that stage. Overall game vas very poor and he was not impresive as well, utill last minutes where eith his plays, elegant stayle, dunking, penetration, passing and ability to run PG reminded of great Croatian star Toni Kukoc

Only question now is how much room he has to impruve and how hard will he work

here are some other plays

here are some other plays from Mazalin

year ago highlights from U-16 EC where he played against year older players. For comparison last summer he averaged 15pt 6rb, 4 as., Rubio had 11 +6 +3 playing with year older kids. Generaly does not tell about potential, but shows how good he is at moment. you can also notice how much more athletic he looks now then he did last year
