Who are your favourite or top European prospects this years draft?
Besides Donatas motiejunas because he will be the first one taken definetly.
I havent seen much of them..
but guys who from what ive seen look good to me are..
Nemanja Bjelica- Serbia
At 6'10, he seems like a good passer, shooter and ball handler.
To me, he looks like a good scorer.
Early projection: Mid 2nd round
Alexey Shved- Russia
To me looks like the best Euro prospect behind Motiejunas.
A 6'7 true PG, with good athleticism and wingspan. A great passer and ball handler, and a good shooter as well. Loeads of potential.
Early projection: Late 1st round- Early 2nd round.
Paulao Prestes- Brazil
A litte undersized at 6'10 for the C position, but makes up for it with great strength at 275 pounds.
From what I've seen, seems to get good post position and has solid post moves.
Seems like a good rebounder from the videos i have watched. Also looks to have a solid mid range jumpshot. Looks like an alright passer. Looks like he could be a solid prospect.
Early projection- Early 2nd round.
A banger. You gotta love those type of guys.
fnck European prospects they alwayz suck donkey@$$
Alexey isn'T ready for the league yet,but if he stays in europe for a couple of years he is going to do really good. 6'7'' point guard will create alot of matchup problem.
Yeha, he wont be ready right away, but with his size and athleticism, he could be a matchup nightmare in the future.
shved has enormous potential, he is just stuck behind veterans on his team. He is definately one to watch.
