NBA Draft: Does Dario Saric Have more potential than Batum and Gallinari?
does Dario Saric have more potential than Nic Batum and Danillo Gallinari? WIll he be a lottery pick when he declares? How good will he be in 5 years? Whats his potential compared to those 2
He really resembles Danillo Gallinari size, height, length, game, athleticism and the main thing is a shooter. So I'd say his potential is somewhere around Danillo Gallinari.
I honestly don't think his potential is as high as either of those guys. He's not the athlete that Batum is and he doesn't have the natural shooting touch or ball skills that Gallinari has at his size.
Batum could be suprstar, but does not have desire to dominate. He is player that you would like to be more selfish
Saric has better ball handling Gallo, is less athletic and worst shooter. His feal for game and court vision is top level, on level of uniqe players like Magic and Bird as well as his leadership winnig mentalty + his natruall insticts for rebounding
Those things can make difrence
Saric is facing some issues here in europe... contract issues with bilbao forcing him to come back to croatia (zagreb), and recent DUI...
Talented kid but more adapted to europe than nba.
nothing serius, and no issues with Bilbao, Bilbao practicly tried to steal him from Zagreb
he signed contract with 1M buyuot, and his managers were able to reduce it to 550K (FIBA, LOL....and he is lucky, his former team changed board and returned some good people there who are not greedy, otherwise they would apel on FIBA decision and he would lose full season). They planed to doit to 250 so Bilbao could pay such buyout. There were many rich club who would pay 1M buyut, but that would mean another big buyout for NBA. So he chose Cibona after FIBA recuced buyout because he can leave after evrey season
I like him as a PF. He's such a PF prospect but idk if he willing to do it.
He's very good rebounder and skilled/ smooth in the high/ low post. His jump shot is more suited for Pick and Pop as well, with his handles allowing him to be a threat on the Roll.... He would still handle the ball in fast break situations where his handles stand out.
As a 3 he would struggle guarding SFs and blowing by them.
