NBA Comparison: Toni Kukoc

Stevan Petrovic - 5/4/2006

Strengths: Alekasandrov is excellent outside shooter with great offensive skills ... Extremely talented young player who can play both inside and outside ... He has the size of a big man but can play like a guard Very difficult to guard because he shoots 3's very well and can dribble the ball ... Has great hands, coordination, speed and long arms; decent court vision .... Has potential to be a very good SF in the NBA. ... He uses his hands very well around the basket and grabs many rebounds because of his huge wing-span ... He runs the court and moves well around the basket for the big guy ... Uses pump fakes, dribble drives, and the turn around jumper extremely well ... He can also pass well if he is double teamed in the post ... He can also lead a fast break He is also a solid shoot-blocker

-Weaknesses: The most talented young prospect out of Serbia so far, but he often appears to lack great passion for the game ... Very skinny, needs to get much stronger in order to play at the NBA level He does not like contact in the post and he is very weak physically ... Will run away from contact Must put another 20 pounds to gain the necessary strength Defensively he needs a lot of work to become solid NBA defender ... Lacks experience ... Has been injured most of last year..... Struggles to make shots over bigger and stronger defenders ... Added strength will allow him to become more aggressive and tougher in the post

* Alexandrov has not played a single game in 2005-2006 season due to injury.

Aran Smith - 11/22/2005

Strengths: Player with immense physical gifts, incredible outside shooter, extremely fluid running the floor, good quickness and leaping ability. The sky's the limit ... He has incredible hands, and has size and coordination, speed, long arms, great ball handler. He has all the physical attributes be a star ... Perfect size and skills for the SF position ... The game comes so easily to him, he often seems not to be trying hard ...

Weaknesses: He's the most talented prospect in Europe, but his passion for the game is a source of constant criticism ... Still has not proven himself on the senior level ... The NBA will be reluctant to get burned again by the "workout wonder" ... He must become a lot more aggressive. He still is very weak physically, and avoids contact because of it ... Some feel he lacks the fire to be great ... Has been injury prone, so he must prove he can stay healthy for close to a full season.
