NBA Comparison: Jorge Garbajosa

Strengths: Natural Born scorer… Good perimeter shooter, with really deep range … He is a scoring threat from everywhere on the court… A mature and polished player that plays beyond his years ... Great in Catch And Shoot situations and can shoot off the dribble too … He is the ideal player to play Pick and Pop and can become a good stretch-four in the NBA … Able to go by the defenders on close outs, mainly because the defense must respect his shooting ability… Can occasionally put the ball on the floor … Moves well without the ball … Although he has strange mechanics, he has quick and high release, which makes it difficult for an opponent to block his shoot … Over time managed to become a good post player, who can turn from either shoulder to shoot … Runs the floor well … High basketball I.Q. with a great feel for the game … Very mature for his age … Better passer than most people think … Good rebounder … A hard worker … Takes and makes big shoots … Very confident player… He has shown leadership qualities…

Weaknesses: Poor athlete by NBA standards… Not big or strong enough to play full time at the power forward position and lacks quickness and athleticism to play the small forward position … Lacks great lateral quickness … He is a liability on defense … As most left handers, he has the tendency to go left … He has to improve his ball handling, especially with his right hand … Not a good pick and roll player just yet … Has problems on the block versus long and athletic players … His limited leaping ability makes it difficult for him to finish at the rim … He hasn’t been tested at the highest level yet, since his former team (Aris) didn’t play in European Competitions … Has to put on some muscle …

Notes: Has Bulgarian and Cypriot citizenship, but chose to play for the Bulgarian national team ... He is the son of Sasho Vezenkov, a former Bulgarian national team player, and shows the feel for the game of a guy who grew up around the game with a professional father ... For three consecutive seasons (2013-2015) he was named “Greek League Best Young Player of the year” ... He was named the “Greek League MVP” in 2014/15 season and he was also the Top Scorer the same year ...

Notes: Holds both Bulgarian and Greek citizenship
