NBA Comparision: Rex Chapman

Strengths: Smooth, athletic guard with enormous potential ... Right now at 16: he was born in 1995, he can already play at a high level in Europe ... Probably is the best European prospect at his position since Drazen Petrovic and honestly has more potential: on the court he can do everything ... Prototypical SG size for the NBA with excellent leaping ability ... A natural and aggressive scorer: he has great jump shot, with good spot up/pull up ability ... His long arms and athleticism also make him very efficient finishing at the rim; against opponents smaller than him he also knows how to utilize a post up game ... He can pass: he is tall for the role and he has a terrific vision, so he can even play like point guard or point forward ... He can takes rebound: with is body skills he is a good rebounder for his size thanks to his aggressiveness and athleticism and he plays clutch when the game is close ... He's really an exciting player ... He's also a good ball handler and he runs very well in fast break and in transition ... He also shows good anticipation defensively and has a great knack for jumping passing lanes ...

Weaknesses: Hezonja has incredible intensity, but sometimes that manifests itself in him being too hard on himself and especially teammates. He's been seen getting in the face of teammates when they don't play up to his expectations ... He's a poor student and considered to be a bit of a wild child off the floor. Gaining some maturity and becoming more of a team player should be something that he focuses on ... He's very young so his long-limbed body is perfect for his age, however he must put on some muscle to play in NBA ... In one-on-one defense, he doesn't always exhibit enough intensity, but sometimes that is understandable in order for him to be as prolific as he is offensively ...

Notes: He was named MVP in the last European Championship Under 16 averaging 20 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.7 assist and 2.2 steals per game ...
