NBA Comparison: Mirza Teletovic

Strengths: Small forward with a powerful body ... Great shooter, one of the quickest releases in Europe .... He can create his own shot from off the dribble as well as shoot coming off screens. The big thing that stands out about Janis is his strong, athletic body, with great bounce ... Gets some highlight finishes and will dunk on players if they are unsuspecting ... His ability to defend and knock down 3s makes him an intriguing prospect for today's NBA ...

Weaknesses: Tends to disappear at times during games ... He doesn't do a lot to impact games if the things aren't coming easily to him ... With his body, he should be a bigger factor on the boards ... Not a great ball handler, needs to work on it to attack long close-outs and fully take advantage of his athleticism ... I Expect him to work on his lateral quickness to be able to guard faster SFs ...

Notes: Taken 60th overall in the 2013 draft, "Mr Irrelevant" ... Was one of the real standout performers at the adidas Eurocamp ...
