NBA Comparison:

Strenghts: Standing 6-foot-8 he has a solid structure and long arms with a frame that should allow him to put on some muscles without struggling ... He is a solid athlete despite not being extremely explosive, he’s mobile and smooth running the floor ... Offensively he shows solid shooting skills for the role, especially as a spot up shooter – basically in pick and pop situations – beyond three point line ... His mobility allows him to be really effective in P&R, where he shows good timing and a sense of position after the screen, for the cut to the rim of the pick and pop ... In addition, he’s also really effective in transition, when he can exploit his speed and motor compared to the size ... He has good lateral speed and footwork, making him a reliable defender also vs. backcourt players despite the size ... He has quick hands and solid instincts in the passing lanes which makes him a good stealer ... He has the potential and the technical skills to play in post position even if not yet developed. Great motor, and intensity, really effective in off the ball game ...

Weaknesses: He’s a little undersized to play PF at NBA level, at least considering the traditional perception of the role, he could struggle in the paint against bigger and taller opponents ... He lacks explosiveness and a quick first step to play in the backcourt on a constant basis ... Furthermore, he still needs to bulk up a lot to face the physicality of the NBA level ... He could be considered a tweener by NBA standards, since his game is based on facing the basket and he lacks post game and proper PF fundamentals ... He’s more a finisher than a creator, he needs to be set up in order to be effective offensively.

Notes: 8.6 pts 5.2 rb 2.3 ast (had a season high of 30 points against Galatasaray last November) in Euroleague, 10 points and 6 rb in ABA league his digits, providing a steady and consistent role on a solid Euroleague team, Red Star Belgrade.
