NBA Comparison: N/A

Samy Zelikson - 4/13/2006

Strengths: Great length, has a huge wingspan Athletic, runs the floor like a guard Good leaping ability with his long arms and big hands, a very good dunker Finishes well around the rim, has good hands and a soft touch on his a fade away and turn around jump shot A good passer for a forward with above average court vision Has excellent awareness of where he is all the time, always looks calm, never panics, a mature player ... Active, always moving, you won't see him just standing on the court. Has a good attitude, always trying to improve his game

Weaknesses: Too skinny especially for the post position, needs about 15-20 pounds of muscle Has a very ugly shot, due to a broken elbow he suffered a couple of years ago, almost no arc in his shot ... Limited on his man to man defense, lack of outside shooting has him playing PF, despite having a SF's style of play and a SG's body weight ... Gets fatigued. Sometimes disappears on the 2nd half, had too many game of 18-20 points in the 1st half and 2-4 more in the 2nd half ... Despite his good scoring ability he hasn't yet developed a go to mentality, although he's shown improvement in it as time goes by Has nearly no left hand game at all. Can't guard stronger guys in the post Has nice blocking ability, but he's not going to be a shot blocker in the NBA ... Streaky, can score 30 in 80% and 10 in 30% the next game Decision making is not at the highest level ... A quiet guy, not very vocal. Still hasn't shown mush heart or leadership ...

Notes: Took part in two European U-20 championships (silver in 2004 and 4th in 2005), was in the Euro-Cup's All Star game, scoring 10 points. Was very impressive at the world U-22 Championship in Argentina, averaging 18.2 PPG and 8.2 RPG. Was a contender for FIBA's young player of the year in 2005.
